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

Thanks to DustinGalvin for this 16 oz. can that arrived with friends…I’m getting through them as fast as my liver can take. Canned 4/19/17.

The pour is more pineapple juice that orange juice, do I knock a NE IPA points for that? Nose is that tropical fruit thing cut with plenty of sweetness & lots of flowers. I came home to some gorgeous purple flowers in the section of my backyard jungle I’ve reclaimed, so I’m feeling the plant kingdom right now.

Cutting Tiles - Galaxy tastes like I want my wife’s nipples to taste. Wild jungle mango & zesty orange peel come out on top of this Tahitian delight. Moderate bitterness mid-palate is tempered by long, languid sweetness (Honey, I presume - a pleasure). Citrus arrives late. I could drink gallons of this, preferably next to a good Belgian waffle with bourbon-barrel maple syrup. Or sitting in my undies on the couch. Whichever.

I haven’t always received the panting loveliness the hype machine suggests from Trillium’s beers, but this one delivers in spades (if spades were the color & taste of pineapples, of course). Excellent brew.

This is definitely one of the top three beers I've ever drank. It begins with a very complex feel of mango, peach, and melon which is followed by a slight hop bitterness, which is then washed away with honey sweetness. When I think about New England style double ipas, this is the Hallmark.
