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

jsquire (4359) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2017
Murky yellow color out of the bottle with a quickly shrinking off white head. Candied citrus peel nose. Strong citrus hop flavors with Mandarin orange, tangerine, red grapefruit, stone fruit, tropical fruit and white grapes. Firm malty backbone and a long dry grassy finish. Another big hop juice beer from Trillium.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bottle... Murky pear-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is nasty marriage of nail polish remover and funky armpit with undercurrents of grapefruit and passionfruit. Medium to full-bodied and astringent with lazy carbonation. Bittersweet (more bitter than sweet) and bone-fucking-dry. Lingering, tongue-numbing bitterness. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Une finale amre mais avec un kick dagrumes qui remonte avant de laisser place une douce amertume rsiduel. a pourrait tre un peu plus sucr mon got. Somme toute une bire incroyable, le palais est bien rond, jen reboirais chaque jour.
