BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cutting Tiles is an exploratory series of double IPA's featuring a range of aromatic single hop varietals brewed with raw wildflower honey. This familiar first version, formally known as Artaic, is dosed with 100% Galaxy in all kettle, whirlpool and two massive dry hop additions. The local 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. New variants to follow!

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

HOPS: Galaxy

Had on tap at the Trillium Garden on the Greenway a month or so back. Super hazy and golden color. Huge flavors of peach, citrus rind, honey, and resin attack the palate. It's very chewy and sticky in the mouth, a bit heavy in the stomach but still so very drinkable due to the flavor. This beer is incredible and the blend of wildflower honey with Galaxy was near perfect.

Can. White head. Super hazy golden sunset orange. Looks like juice.

This is one of trillium's best beers and one of my favorite NE DIPAs. It is so soft with no bitterness or burn. Tropical juice. Orange, pineapple, and mango. The wildflower honey must do something here, because the feel is incredible. This beer is way too drinkable for a double.

One of the best IPAs I’ve had. Would put this just below Perm 32 for me. I remember having Mosaic Cutting Tiles last year, and thought it was a mess. The new fermentation for these beers not only makes the hop flavors pop, but also smooths them out and they look great in the glass. Really, this is possibly the best looking IPA I’ve had. It’s looks like a puree of pineapples and oranges, and has a thick, sticky head. The taste is like 32, but a little more bite that I really liked. They’re knocking these beers out of the park lately.
