This is not from the Congress Street of my childhood...

Trillium Brewing Company, Congress Street IPA, Boston, MA

7.2% abv. This beer is two weeks old. It pours a brilliant unfiltered yellow gold color with a huge head and fluffy Belgian lace. Pine, orange zest, mango, and fresh cut grass aromas. It has an amazing silky smooth mouthfeel with an aggressive hop finish. This beer has a light and pleasant carbonation and it is so fresh it almost tastes cask conditioned.  Super drinkable with pine, apricot, orange, mango, grapefruit, and fresh pineapple flavors. Wow the 7.2% is sneaky. It is going down way too fast. This is a thoroughly enjoyable IPA and something I would definitely revisit in the near future. I may even have to make a trip to the brewery soon.
