Mettle Double IPA

Mettle: a person’s ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way.

From Trillium’s website:

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.

For me, Mettle has subtle dank quality of pot-influenced smokiness and sticky, raw green resin. Certainly grassy with prickly lemon and peach. Wonderful balancing candy sweetness underneath. Mettle Double IPA checks into my scorecard at a solid 94 points. Another gem from Trillium.
