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

Canned 8/29/23 and shipped to PA

Definitely think it borders on living up to the hype - a very good hazy. Super soft and creamy; little grassier than I prefer my IPAs, but this is balanced enough that it's not a detraction nor is it over the top. Glad I finally got the tick on this one, but there are definitely other Trillium hazies I would prefer to this.

Pours a very hazy fleshy peach color with a fluffy off white head that leaves ringlets of lace as you enjoy the beer. Gorgeous hazy.

The nose is dank and packed with sweet peach aromas, orange peel, some grapefruit, and lots of mango and pineapple. This is literally a beer fruit basket of aromas.

The peach flavors lead the taste and are delicious, with the orange, mango, and pineapple flavors following, with a bit of green grapes mid palate and a nice creamy oat flavor on the finish. Very balanced and oh so delicious.

The mouthfeel is full, soft, and creamy, adding to the drinkability. This is a magnificent representation of the style, IMHO.

On tap:
Cloudy bruised peach with a typical hazy head that clings to the edges pretty well. Nose is melon and unripe tropical fruits midway through without any agitation. Giving the beer a swirl ripens the fruits pretty quickly, giving a sweeter impression overall (some sniffs expose an overripe burn, but it’s not the norm).

When cold, the beer opens with an almost tart fruit note, which contrasts poorly with the more bitter middle and finish. It doesn’t completely disappear as the beer warms, but it does mellow out and blend in better. The sweetness notes in the nose after a swirl pervades the opening through to near the finish, reducing the contrast, but taking the bitterness I enjoyed in the back end of a colder beer.

This beer went from a disjointed start with highs and lows to a more balanced, but also more typical, very good hazy.

On tap, pours a beautiful hazy glowing orange. Smell is an immediate assault of fresh grapefruit, followed by layers of berry and a touch of dank. Taste follows. Feel is smooth and dang near perfect. No booze, no burn. Outstanding.
