Sometimes, the window sill just gets lucky.
Although it has only been around since 2013, Boston’s Trillium Brewing Company is among one of the most revered breweries in the northeast. Beers like Two Hundred Thousand Trillion, a double IPA aged on peach, apricot and guava, are why Trillium has gained such a following. I also have to give credit to Brooklyn’s Other Half Brewing, who collaborated with Trillium on this delicious wonder. Other Half has also recently become a pretty big name in the New York beer scene. If this collaboration sounds familiar, it’s because the two breweries have combined two other times for IPAs: Hundred Thousand Trillion, and Like Whoa. This brew is juicy and hazy, like any good IPA should be, and the flavors from the Galaxy, Citra, El Dorado and Nelson Sauvin hops really shine through, along with the fruit. It was also canned one day before this review, so the freshness was amazing.
The best part about this beer? I was in Boston for the week, and I needed to stop by Trillium’s Fort Point location to bring back beers for some friends. As it turned out, I stumbled upon this release. Sometimes it just pays to be lucky. Check out New York City from my Jersey hotel room, too. Lots of traveling this week!
More great collaborations await on our Instagram page. Check it out!
