My first stop in Boston Friday morning was a treacherous 20 minute walk from our hotel to Trillium Brewery. Huge flakes of thick heavy snow were falling at an alarming rate. By the time I crossed the Fort Point Channel my face was streaming with tears from the wind and I was covered in fresh white powder. I looked like a walking snowman. All this to pick up 12 bottles of Trillium's flagship beer Congress Street.
This American IPA pours a hazy orange with a thick frothy white head that clings to the glass creating a beautiful lacing. Big tropical fruits dominate the aroma; orange, pineapple, peach and mango with an incredible balance of fruit and pine flavors. Super juicy up front with a clean bitter finish and a crazy bubbly yet creamy mouthfeel. I'm a huge fan of Galaxy hops and this beer is pretty close to perfection. I would gladly walk through another blizzard to have these bottles in my fridge. Cheers!
