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 the source: pours hazy with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruits and sharp hops. Pretty good combo. Fairly bitter. Deceivingly light on the malt backbone. Great hop character.
