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.

SG111 (1480) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Canned 12/21/16. Pours hazy orange color, white head. Aroma is mango, papaya, pine, semi dank, orange, citrus, little peppery, little spicy, white grape, really nice citrus notes pop. Flavor is super piney, bitter lemon rind, orange, citrus. Decently soft mouthfeel, especially as it warm. Nice, but a little too bitter for my taste.

Servida en un Spiegelau IPA, APARIENCIA: de color amarillo, se observa turbia y una mediana actividad de carbonatacin, tambin restos de sedimento, muy pocos pero ah estn. Corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retencin, de burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. AROMA: ctrica y frutal, dominan las notas a pia madura, mango, naranja madura, duraznos, toronja, algo herbal, como pasto recin cortado, un poco de pino y algo de dulzor de las maltas pero slo para dar soporte a los lpulos. SABOR: de entrada una explosin de frutos tropicales y ctricos, pia madura, mango, duraznos, naranja, toronja, jugo de uva blanca, seguido del carcter herbal de los lpulos, notas a pasto recin cortado, pino, algo especiado, y ligeramente las maltas, como la anterior, slo para dar soporte a los lpulos, el dulzor que aportan es mnimo. El retrogusto queda un amargor medio, con larga permanencia en la boca pero no es seco, queda el gusto herbal y ligeramente ctrico/frutal por mucho tiempo. SENSANCIN: cuerpo medio con sensacin oleosa en boca, mediana carbonatacin. RESUMEN: excelente IPA, de clase mundial.

(16oz can) cloudyish gold, lasting fine white bubbles. Nose was initially a nasty aroma of onion which died over time, juicy, citrus peel. Taste of lime, citrus zest, juicy as hell, very well balanced, medium to light body, great juicy hop linger.

SlovakSniper (5311) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
Release du 11/30/2016 donc 4 jours de vie? Ok, belle robe dore et mousse qui saccroche sans surprise. Nez Trillium, fruits et oignon, herbes et fleurs dalcool. Bouche huileuse sans grand mouvement des bulles. Saveurs fruites intressantes mais peu explosives, facture mielleuse, petite chaleur, pche et conifres. Finale de houblons en sueur et cargaison herbace.
