BEER INFO

Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
In the spirit of tenacity and camaraderie, Mettle was first created to highlight the milestone of our inaugural year as a brewery. With an intense dual dry-hop treatment of Amarillo and Citra, this medium-bodied Double IPA beckons with aromatics of peach and nectarine. A fusion of grape juice and candied citrus greet the palate while accents of white-wine, grassy hop, and a mellow bitterness reveal themselves on a smooth, dry finish. We continue to brew Mettle in recognition of our devoted following of hopheads that have supported us from the very beginning.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, Valley Danko Rye, Valley Triticale, Valley Wheat, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Amarillo, Citra, Columbus

I've yet to sample a Trillium beer that I did not consider world class! Keep up the great work, M & M Tetrault

The beer comes in a deep gold to pale amber color, fluffy white head, rich and hazy.

The aroma offers earthy, green weed dank qualities, pine sap, surrounded by dried citrus peel, tangerine/orange peel, with a surrounding peach and apricot.

The flavor transitions onto white grape, hints of sweet white wine, dried mango, pineapple, unripen mango, concentrated dried orange peel, a sugar coated light biscuity malt, onto a medium pithy bitterness while the beer dries out. The mouthfeel is chewy and medium plus.

Great DIPA with the classic Trillium aroma that makes you feel like you've stepped into the brewery. Dank, citrusy smell bursts forth from the bottle. Taste of unripened mango, pineapple, orange peels and sweet malt. The malt is actually the sweetest I've tasted from any Trillium beer. Strong alcohol heat envelops the mouth; not off-putting but it makes its presence well known. Extremely bitter.
