Notes / Commercial Description:
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

My first Trillium beer, have to figure out how to get more regularly!

Canned on 6/10/18, poured from can into tulip glass 10/2/18. Guessing I missed some of the highlights here but this is still a great beer. Murky orange-yellow pour with large foamy head that quickly disappears leaving a little lacing. Juicy citrus with a touch of sweetness to it on the nose. Clean, crisp taste with touch of hoppy bitterness to finish. Delicious beer, wish I was closer so I could get more of their stuff regularly.

08/2015 - Typical Trillium juiciness on the nose with orange, tangerine, and some citrus up front; notable onion on the palate with a nice sweetness, creaminess, and slightly bitter back end; the finish is clean, bright, fruity, and a touch dank.

A very Trillium-looking beer. Chalky peach flesh color with a couple fingers of airy off-white head that descends to a skiff. Ok retention with a little lacing.The smell is that of peachy BO: stone fruit, funky hop odor and general layers of greeny, almost grassy pseudo bitterness. The flavor follows with a rich, thick hop funk. Big Columbusy green bitterness with a real depth of pot-like, pine-bough flavor with some dank stone fruit notes. It has a fairly big body with a creamy feel, moderate carbonation and a lingering hoppy finish. A nice IIPA from these guys that seems to be immensely bitter without being bitter at all and quite fruity without being fruity. Lots of rich, strong hop flavor and a nice feel. Pretty much pure, concentrated hops from across the spectrum on a sugar cookie canvas. AKA a Trillium beer.
