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

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.

Can pour. Light on the nose, slightly hoppy. Pours a pale cloudy amber. Interesting flavor. Light to medium bodied with a nice bitterness. Nice.

Poured from a can. Bright yellow and cloudy, coarse head that dissipates quickly. Grapefruit and pineapple on the nose, palate follows with a good boozy kick and a nice lingering bitterness. 10/10 would crush again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can less than a month old. Pours a very hazy, bright golden color and topped by a small off white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin ring with minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma is really nice and hoppy showing waves of citrus fruit with notes of juicy orange, grapefruit, mango, and peach along with a touch of white grape over a solid solid toasted biscuit malt base with some lingering resinous pine. The flavor follows suit with the juicy citrus fruits up front with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, and mango while notes of fresh cut grass and white wine grape come through as well. The toasted biscuit malts add a solid backbone while the citrus and pine hops add ample bitterness on the back end and a dry finish. Medium bodied and very smooth and easy to drink for a double IPA with balanced carbonation that leads to a perfectly dry and bitter sweet citrus fruit finish. Really delicious stuff and another awesome beer from Trillium. This is one of my new faves from these guys. Great stuff here.

haukur (1957) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 5, 2017
Very hazy yellow. Aroma is dank, some citrus, very green and herbal. Slight grassy notes on the tongue, other than that, another high abv IPA that feels like a session beer. Superb

Can sample at a tasting at troubles place. Thanks Alon. Cloudy yellow. Fruity and green hops, dry, moderately bitter, a bit of hoppy spiciness in the throat. Good.

tomer (3514) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 23, 2017
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.

willisread (3341) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2017
Can shared. Thanks John at Gam! Pours a hazy straw color with a finger of creamy foam. Tons of fruit: white grapefruit, mandarin, white peach, and melon. 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.
