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

ciocanelu (1812) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 16, 2017
Really hazy bright yellow color with slightly off-white head. Aroma has a really soft hop profile, mostly grassy and herbal. Taste starts slightly sweet and juicy, some dank hoppy notes, finishes with a light to medium bitterness. Medium body, really smooth mouthfeel, well carbonated. Really nice NE style IPA, straight forward, well made, awesome.

Pours a cloudy, peach-yellow, with middling head. Aroma is very citrusy and hoppy-dank. Flavor is quite bitter, with loads of citrus and pine-spruce hops. Theres a slight touch of underlying sweetness to the whole combo. Very nice double IPA.

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.
