BEER INFO

Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

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

Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with white head. Aroma is tropical fruits and floral notes. Taste is very well balanced. Flavors of melon, pineapple, mango, caramel, floral notes. Very well done imperial IPA.

16oz. can into a Heady Topper stemless pint.

Muddy look. Kinda dark too. Nose is citrus, starfruit and pineapple. Huge juicy dank tropical fruit notes. Beer opens citrus and starfruit. Sweet with a huge tropical citrus fruit presence. Aggressive with a touch of acidity in the middle. No hop notes to speak of. Finishes orange and pineapple juice. Real nice. Body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Prickly on the palate and goes down aggressive. Super drinkable.

Very very good if a touch one dimensional. The drinkability is off the charts though.

Not much to look at once poured into the glass. No backlit props - is just like to see a little more activity and vibrancy in the glass. Nose is wonderful - fruit bomb. I get pineapple and mango along with some nice true honey notes. Taste is almost overwhelming but the body keeps all those strong, sweet malts and late hops at bay.
