Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our latest Double IPA serves as a Public Service Announcement to warn against the Boston phenomenon of lodging a box truck under a low clearance overpass on Storrow Drive. While it's a sporadic phenomenon that can snarl traffic for hours, Storrow Drive claims most of its victims during college move in weekend, typically around Labor Day. Be sure to heed the Low Headroom Warnings at the Storrow Drive entry points!

Storrowed Double IPA presents as a deeply hazy, warm yellow/orange hue. Leading with a dank nose of sweaty pineapple, mangosteen, and stone fruit and follows with intensely juicy flavors of overripe mango, pear flesh, notes of grapefruit pith, and a background hit of raw sugar. That hint of sweetness is balanced by low bitterness to round out Storrowed as a smooth, delicious, drinkable Double IPA.

MALT: Pilsner, Honey Malt, Flaked Oats
HOPS: Vic Secret, Citra

Pours hazy, orange-brown in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is lemon-lime sherbet with candied orange. Medium bodied, sweet, with low carbonation. Most sherbet like beer I have ever had. Lovely, smooth, mostly sweet beer. Could do several.

A:
Pours a cloudy dark orange with a couple fingers of meringue head. Decent retention; specks of lacing. (4)

S:
Trillium stank. Ripe tropical fruits, more on the sweet side (mango, guava, papaya) with some light malt. (4.25)

T:
Green grapes, pear, guava, orange, sugar cookies, greenish-boozy finish. (4.25)

M:
Medium body, creamy and soft with moderate carbonation, fairly well-masked alcohol and a smooth finish. (4.5)

O:
A nice, inoffensive IIPA.
This one isn't particularly pushing in any one direction to my tastes, just a well-made Trillium beer. As per usual. Looks like what you'd want from a beer like this. The nose is all over-ripe tropical fruit and pretty damn sweet. The flavor follows but isn't as tropical, still quite sweet though. Lots of pear and grapes. It drinks like a cloud. In my opinion that is the one factor that is a constant in their IPAs (aside from general goodness). I'd have it again. (4.25)

16oz can, snifter glass. Cloudy darker straw yellow body, one finger white head, lots of lacing. Smell is tropical fruit, herbal resin, a bit of warming heat, caramel and light sugar, grapefruit and a bit of zest. Flavour follows; a bit of an intermediate sweetness between that of an IPA and DIPA, nice tropical fruit bite, grapefruit zest with a mildly resinous finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft and creamy, mild-moderate bitterness, still really nice to crush a can of this on a warm early fall night.

On-tap at Trillium Garden on the Greenway, Boston, MA

A; The beer is very cloudy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dank grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very dank and has flavors of pineapples, papayas, mangos, and pine, the latter of which is most noticeable in the finish. There is only a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very juicy and is packed with lots of dank and fruity aromas and flavors.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Juicy orange/yellow with a rich head and glue like lacing.
N: Mango, orange, lemon, hops, and floral notes.
T: Loads of citrus with a fantastic hops hit, nice bitterness but balanced by softness, a slight dry finish.
M: Medium
O: Wow, if you want full flavor this DIPA delivers. I enjoyed this one from start to finish...
