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!”

Glassware: IPA glass.

Appearance: Deep cloudy apricot colour which tops off with a two finger head. It collapses to the rim with healthy lace following it down.

Aroma: First impressions are dank, juicy, pithy citrus and pineapple which at first seemed to be muted but she opens up as she settles in the glass. The hallmark lactose/creamy oats can be found along with an interesting hit of menthol. Cue the subtle malty sweetness and we have a fairly well balanced and highly aromatic nose.

Flavour: Proper juice train! Dank herbs, apricot, paw paw, sugary sweet nectar, pineapple, mango, orange and guava just to name a few. Gets super pithy midway…orange tang, mango rind, piney resins and lemon curd making way for a sweet, juicy and ultimately smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Quite full and dense yet this gelatinous texture fills the mouth. Mild-medium co2 with an incredibly well concealed AbV (8.4%).

Overall: As far as Trillium IPA’s go this one would easily have to be up there with their best. Big breakfast juice bomb with crazy drink-ability once the AbV is factored in. Top shelf.
