Beer God’s Notes
Original Tasting Notes: nice flavors, pretty great tasting.
This is my second beer from Trillium, the first coming just before this and I’m in love. I’ve heard nothing but good things about these guys but Mettle was really tasty. I’m always honored when a friend tells me to come over so that I can try something special. Sharing beer is what I love about the craft beer community. He could have drank it all himself, or traded it away for other tasty rare beers, but he decided to share it with me and a few close friends.
Mettle DIPA has made me angry that I can’t get Trillium easily. It’s a good angry, but I’m still upset!
In the spirit of tenacity and camaraderie, Mettle was first created to highlight the milestone of our inaugural year as a brewery. With an intense dual dry-hop treatment of Amarillo and Citra, this medium-bodied Double IPA beckons with aromatics of peach and nectarine. A fusion of grape juice and candied citrus greet the palate while accents of white-wine, grassy hop, and a mellow bitterness reveal themselves on a smooth, dry finish. We continue to brew Mettle in recognition of our devoted following of hopheads that have supported us from the very beginning.
MALT: American 2-row Barley, Valley Danko Rye, Valley Triticale, Valley Wheat, Dextrine, Dextrose
