Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

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

I CANsider myself very fortunate to have been the lucky winner of a buncha CANs in a recent lottery on a different social media site. I merely had to pony up the cost of shipping, which was modest, in return for a buncha CANs for The CANQuest (tm)! I had heard of & was certainly aware of Trillium B.C., but I have not been trading in a while & so I did not give them much thought. I am now interested in drinking & reviewing the entire Small Bird Series, especially Pipsqueak Penguin & Stumpy Duck since I have an affinity for the former & a rubber form of the latter who oversees my drinking & will be in an NBS pic later.

Nowt to report from the stark grey & white CAN. 8=(

My last of the day for NBS (Week 659) began with a Crack! followed by a gentle Glug, revealing yet another deeply cloudy, unfiltered beer. Hmm. A vigorous in-glass swirl raised a brief finger of soapy, foamy, tawny head with limited retention, quickly reducing to wisps. Color was a milky, murky, cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM =4 - 5). Nose smelled of both tangerine/ sweet orange and honey, but it also had a bready yeastiness, like rising dough, that might have been avoided with some filtration. Mouthfeel was medium, but light for the style. The taste was kind of an oddball admixture of flavors, ranging from earthy, freshly-turned soil to sweet clover honey to rising bread dough to tangerine/sweet orange to a light alcohol heat that tingled my sinus cavity. Phew! It was certainly attention-getting, but it also had a graininess that left my mouth feel like it was coated in powder after each swallow. I CANnot help but wonder what even a modicum of filtration might have done for this beer. Finish was dry, but not overly bitter, more citrusy than anything else. I was glad to have tried it, but I was not as big a fan as others seem to have been, based on the overall score.
