Gluten Reduced IPA
Citra Lock & Key
Lock & Key is a series of gluten-reduced beers designed to expand our portfolio for more beer lovers to enjoy. In chemistry, Lock and Key Theory describes an enzyme and substrate relationship in which only the perfectly fitting substrate will engage a specific action of the enzyme. In the case of our beers, the enzyme breaks down the gluten protein substrate over the course of fermentation. Unlocking this process allows us to create our delicious, gluten-reduced offerings.
The third iteration of the Lock & Key series boasts a dry hop from a variety that we have worked with extensively over the years: Citra. All of the explosive aromatics that you have come to associate with a Trillium IPA are present here. Notes of citrus pith, mango smoothie, pulpy orange juice, and a touch of peach all make an appearance on the nose. A soft, yet full mouthfeel gives way to a pine-like bitterness that rounds out each sip.
Please note: independent testing has proven that this beer meets the standard for “gluten-reduced” as defined by the FDA (<20 parts per million). Rigorous lab testing will be a continued part of sensory analysis conducted prior to every release. We sanitize and clean all production and serving equipment in order to prevent as much cross-contamination as possible. Despite our confidence in these measures, we emphasize that these beers are brewed with products that contain gluten. Those who are sensitive to gluten should be aware of these facts and if you have further questions, we’re more than happy to answer them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
