Notes: Headroom is about pushing boundaries. From its first batch brewed on Congress St. in 2015 to today, Headroom stands as a landmark, watershed beer in terms of our evolution as a brewery. Conceptually, we sought to create our boldest, most daring, hoppiest beer we could possibly dream up. Our ability to conceive and brew new Double Dry Hopped Double and Triple IPAs is born out of our foundational experience brewing Headroom. Remaining our hoppiest beer, laden with over 8 pounds per barrel of Galaxy and Mosaic Hops, Headroom represents a yearly look back at our past, a reflection on our present, and a glance into our future.

This years batch displays huge aromas of pressed orange, lemon zest, and papaya with a burst of fresh grassy hops. Rich flavors of candied peach and orange peel lead the palate with supporting notes of pithy red grapefruit, ripe pineapple, white table grapes, and mango smoothies. As with previous years, Headroom is balanced with a full, rounded mouthfeel and a soft, creamy finish.

MALT: Pale Malt, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Cara-Pils

HOPS: Mosaic, Galaxy, CTZ

On tap at the tasting room. Cloudy/milky orangish/yellow pour with a white head. More tangy than I’m accustomed too from Trillium. Grapefruit and citrus hop notes give way to hints of pine and resin. A bit more unbalanced with a bitter hoppy presence. Average mouthfeel with a good body.

Fresh can courtesy of yllib. ~1.5 month old from brewery. Showing no sign of age.
L: pure mango/orange juice with white Fluffy head.
S: Stonefruit, cantaloupe, grapefruit.
T: stonefruit, orange juice, citrus Grapefruit resiny bitterness. Touch of dank.
F: juicy and fairly thick and creamy.
Overall: A signature trillium style ipa. This is really balanced for a hazy hop bomb though. No hop burn.

16oz. can poured into a beer can shaped glass. A bit of citrus with some pine finish. Dank. Very glad to try this but this seems to fall ever so slightly short of reputation.

Fantastic nose, citrus and a solid mouth feel. This was the star of a backyard ploughman’s lunch.

Sweet tangerine citrus, tropical hoppy, bready/biscuity, and dank nose on this one! Taste follows with a nice tropical hoppy and piney-dank bitter bite...some grapefruit citrus bitterness shows up on the backend. This is so soft and juicy on the palate. Outstanding!

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. This is a really good-looking NEIPA - juicy, milkshake-like burnt yellow with a near-1-finger white head on top.

S: Nose does NOT disappoint - it jumps out of the glass with a bushel of fruit: pineapple, melon, ripe apricot/peach, a touch of lime.

T: Pretty much follows the nose, with pineapple, ripe melon, mango, tangerine, orange creamsicle, then finishing with a lemon-lime bitterness and key lime pie. The 8% ABV is not noted at all, though I think I'm getting a little warmth in the belly.

M: Medium to full-bodied, creamy feel to this one - more creamy than juicy, if that makes sense. Real nice feel to it, challenges Tree House's best in that regard.

O: Phenomenal. A really, really good NEIPA.
