Notes: 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.

Poured into a 13 tulip glass canned on 8/30/22. Pours a milky yellow with a half finger sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace with nice retention. 4.5

Aroma is mandarin, passionfruit, mango, papaya, apricot, and a little hit of grapefruit rind. 4.5

Taste follows mandarin, papaya, mango, passionfruit, apricot, and little grapefruit bitterness in the finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel is rather big, soft gentle carbonation, not sticky or dry, and at 8.4% huge flavor but easy going down. 4.5

Overall this is very tasty as I expect from this brewery. A winner for sure. 4.5

Can from tfontana, thanks for the opportunity! Hazy murky lemon orange color with a frothy white head that dissipates. Lemony grapefruity citrus with hints of mango and pineapple with a hint of pine and resin. Sweet bready malt underneath and a hint of warming alcohol.

Canned 8/31/20

Pours a solid straw orange - it looks a lot like diluted orange juice. Rich and strong pineapple, mango, and orange on the nose. Taste follows the nose but features a nice biscuity and malty flavor. Mouthfeel is wonderfully medium. Overall, another excellent beer from Trillium. Not quite as good as some of the regularly available beers at Trillium but still one worth getting when its released.

Brought to me by the all new Trillvery deliver service (thank you Covid!!!)

Not my favorite from this company, but an average beer from them is better than 90% of what is out there. It could be part to it being 2 months old.

Fire orange color, very light hop scent, not much fruit scent or flavor. Very mellow and drinkable. Easy to over do it with this one.

Hazy orange hue with some minimal effervescence. Scents of fresh squeezed tangerine and ripe peach. Getting some mango and pineapple flavors. On the sweet side, not much in the way of pine or hop bitterness. Maybe from the malt blend. Chewy mouthfeel, very minimal bitterness on the finish. Another solid brew and I appreciate the humorous reference to prime moving season in Boston.

Edit: September 2021 - I’m really digging the new recipe for 2021. Already a great beer, but bumped it up a couple of notches for me. Hope they stick with it!

Poured from can stamped 8/28/19 into Teku (after having a draft at Fort Point earlier in day 9/18. This one caught me a little by surprise how good it is, at least for my tastes (NEIPA weights heavily). Pours cloudy, orangey. Pineapple, mango, slight taste of pine. Drinking on 9/19, really feel I hit the sweet spot for this release as it has just the right notes of tropical fruits and slight bitter notes at the end. Too bad this releases only when the students come back to town.
