I had some discouraging preconceptions from some other friends of mine that have said not as good as Hill Farmstead, Lawson's, or Tree House. Nonetheless, I truly beg to differ. I think that Trillium really holds its own against all of them [Tree House is still the best though]. Congress is a deep, hazy orange with two finger soapy head. It smells of citrus especially grapefruit. The taste is also heavily grapefruit but not overly bitter by the balanced chewy softness of the mouthfeel and possibly the fact that some of the hop profiles faded after opening 2 months after bottling. All things considered, Trillium's Congress Street is something that should NOT be overlooked.
