COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tricerahops is double everything you already love in an IPA. More hops, more malt body and a higher gravity define this Double India Pale Ale. Fiercely flavorful, guaranteed to satisfy.

Bomber. Pour: clear copper amber with a pillowy off white head. Aroma: sweet stone fruit and citrus and malt. Taste: caramel, pineapple citrus and straw; there’s a smooth creaminess which fades to a dry slightly bitter feel on the palate. A nice drinker!

Saw this a few times at my local shell station. Finally picked one up after seeing the ratebeer rating used as a selling point. Pours amber in color with about half an inch of white head. Tastes of malt and carmel with a short booze finish. Somewhat creamier mouthfeel than most double IPAs. Not a bad beer at all.

Braudog (5949) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Go Ravens. Nice rustic visuals, deep amber, solid head retention. Thickly malty, the slightly higher alcohol is evident in a little bit of a burn. But easy to drink, and relatively easy going overall. (#5913, 1/3/2014)

12oz bottle. Pours clear honey colored. Aroma of pineapple, grass, citrus, and a touch of caramel. Flavor of citrus, mango, pineapple, pine, caramel. A robust hop monster with a subtle sweetness.

RCx240 (103) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours dark copper amber, foamy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is resinous, with hints of toffee and caramel. Taste is bitter, nutty, toffee and caramel, some resin. Finishes crisp, slightly bitter, short and abrupt. Medium body, foamy mouthfeel. Quite nice.

Ernest (6514) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, apricot). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Almost no aroma whatsoever, which is very odd for the style...perhaps an old sample, but these just started showing up in Colorado recently so they *should* be pretty fresh (alas, no bottle dates). Decent flavor balance and mouthfeel, though.

NikkTwist (1840) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear orange amber pour that starts with a slim solid layer of off-white foam that mostly disappears, leaving only some wet lace. Sticky body. Thick, heavy caramel malts balanced against high-puckering earthy bitter citrus hops. Unripe oranges. Pinecones dipped in wildflower honey. Candied mushrooms. Pineapple cores. Turpentine marmalade. Feels stronger than the listed 8.8% ABV. Good but harsh.

Light aroma with a clear dark orange color. Very smooth start and finish on this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rando7 (765) - Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle pours almost clear orange with one finger white head. Aroma dominated by pine and earthy hops. Taste with initial malts followed quickly by the pine/earth/floral hops. hoppy finish. Thick mildly slick palate, perfect for the style.

At first the hops were overwhelming. The hops added much more bittering than they did flavor. After a while your taste buds get saturated and the other qualities of the beer come out. Basically this is a huge bittering hop bomb.

Beaver (1390) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy orange copper with a medium creamy off white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready malts with some floral piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with big piney, resiny, tarry hops with a harsh bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a big bitter hop bomb. I remember it being less harsh and more fruity on tap.
