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.

Starts out Good, Stays Good, and Finishes Way too Soon. A fine New England IPA. Reputable company making it too. Vermont comes to Massachusetts. And All is Well. Yum ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 ounce can shared at Todd’s. Nice yellow pour with low to no malt tropical fruits and hops.

16 oz. can from mark000 - thanks again, Mark! Pours a hazy gold with a small white head that settles into an uneven ring and thin island of film. Some yeast sediment floats near the bottom. There’s an herbal fresh hop dankness in the aroma that’s rare for the style, but welcome. The flavor ends with a surprising sharpness. Between the two, we have citrus, pineapple, melon, spice, florals, honey, and sweet and doughy malts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. This gets better as it opens and warms. The sharpness smooths out and there’s a rounded, balanced quality.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 Hazy pale pour with small off-white head. Aromas of grass juice, baked onions, mango. Taste is super juicy, lightly bitter herbal hops with grass standing out. Also oat flavours. Very smooth and well balanced double NE IPA. Alcohol is magically hidden. Creamy and crisp mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Really good.

Tallboy can thanks to Joe Beer. Poured "New England" style. Aroma is sweet, loads of sugary fruit, older peach slices and lots of rotting citrus, dough, vanilla muffin and grassy hops. Flavor is slightly less sweet, peach, lightly bitter citrus fruits, touch of bread, hop cones. Medium to fuller body, average carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Solid but not great.

On tap at Armsby Abbey in Woo-stah. Hazy ipa pour, although orange-ish rather than paler. Citrusy. Tropical fruit. Big peach. A touch of the sweet grape. Hazy. Sweeter than expected. Quite nice. 15.4

Very tasty DIPA, what is there to say, eh? Thanks Richard for the fresh can, because you can you the man. Lighter malt backing, fruity flavour.

The Publick House, Boston. Creamy foam, hazy yellow body, bright. Peach and guava nose, nice fruit. Smooth, fruit leather, rising leather dryness and bitter. Nice full character. Bitterness plays well with fruity pith, and tropical fruit skin. A bit harsh in bitterness. Good character.

Good stuff. Your typical hazy NE IPA. All kinds of fruit, garlic, onion. Just had one that was a couple of months old, accidentally poured the floaties, it still tasted great - luckily it had been kept cold.

Half gallon growler. Split 5 ways at fridle temp. Looks like an orange juice smoothie. Smells of orange and grapefruit smoothie. Hmm decent mouthfeel juicy and dense carb. Yes. It’s like fruit juice. Sweet finish.
