COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
ABV: 8.4%
MALT: American 2-row Barley, Valley Danko Rye, Valley Triticale, Valley Wheat, Dextrine, Dextrose

At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, intense murky yellow color with orange hues, aroma of citrus and flowers with some mustard, shrubby flavor with onion, light fruity sweetness in the back, not too heavy. Nice and enjoyable.

Creamy on the palate with a full-flavor, more fruit. Lingering creaminess and fruit on the palate. Lots of stone fruit and summer melon. Awesome.

Can from Trillium. Typically hazy yellow appearance with a lazy messy white head. Aroma is juicy AF, peach, pineapple, orange, white grape. Flavor has some juicy fruity sweetness balanced by a considerable citrus and tropical hop blast, medium bitterness. Medium plus bodied, well carbonated, easy drinking despite the ABV and hoppiness. Great!

Tastes of white wine,peaches,pepper and clementines.Smooth bitterness, dry with only a light touch of alcohol. Trillium for grown ups!
