BEER INFO

Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
trilliumbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Artaic.

Artaic Double IPA is brewed with 100% Mosaic hops in all kettle, whirlpool and two massive dry hop additions. Local raw wildflower honey keeps the body light and drinkable but provides a floral, earthy backbone. Juicy, candied peach and nectarine up front backed up with a nuanced white wine on the nose that continues straight through in the flavor profile. Pillowy soft mouthfeel, with a restrained bitterness on the finish. Artaic is an innovative Fort Point business that creates dynamic mosaics only possible through innovative robotics.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Dextrine, C-15

HOPS: Mosaic

A hazy lemon color with accents of tea. 1 finger of bubbly, puffy head that recedes to a line of bubbles.

Aroma is akin to ice cream, but with a dank, herbal, skunky aroma. Some rotting fruit rinds.

Flavor is very bitter, with hints garden dirt, rotten grapefruit rind, pine sol, lemon 409, herb, and harsh alcohol. Underneath, we've got the basic Cutting Tiles formula which is great - honeysuckle and ice cream. There is something very off about this beer's flavor - it's basically ice cream and lemon grout cleaner.

Feel is creamy and lush, with a nice electric carbonation.

Overall, I'm mega disappointed this one didn't pan out. I couldn't do it - had to dump it. El Dorado is leagues better, and currently my favorite beer...this one is just not stacking up at all. How different versions of Cutting Tiles could be both my favorite and least favorite Trillium beer is beyond comprehension. What happened?
