Bottle, poured into glass. Beautiful golden amber color. Floral and malty nose. Taste is heavy on the malt, strong floral and caramel notes, and a hint of hops...but just a hint. No trace of alcohol, extremely smooth. Mouthfeel lightly oily but not oppressive. I’d personally prefer if there were more hops in the taste (the name IS "tricerahops" after all) but this is a very nice DIPA on the whole.

This Imperial or Double IPA is off the chart w hop character and is balanced perfectly by a delicious, relatively high gravity, semisweet, malty flavor. This beer has a hop bouquet like nonother. The hop flavor is "full on" but not overwhelming. This beer is very unique and tastes like my kitchen smells when brewing beer! Amazing and a new favorite.

On tap at Jet Rock, Philadelphia Airport. A slightly hazy golden amber colour with a ring of white head; malty caramel aroma; dry woody bitterness with some citrus; and a long satisfying bitter finish with some warmth. A good DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A fine double IPA. Nice color and clarity, basically the standard I’ve come to expect from great IPAs. Lemony, vegetal, with an astringency that lasts just a bit longer than I prefer on the tongue. Still, very good. I’d have another if it wasn’t 8% ABV.

From a bottle. Pours a medium gold and makes a medium head. Aroma is somewhat floral taste is of caramel and hops, but some light malt sneaks in as well. A unique taste balance.

From a 12 oz bottle. Not much aroma and not too bitter or malty. Did a side by side wit Pliny the Elder and Pliny only beat it in aroma and a few IBUs. Excellent balanced citrusy flavor without any bitter aftertaste. Very balanced. Just a great DIPA.

12oz bottle. Pours a good clear golden orange but thin head...could use a little more carbonation. Nice aroma of bitter grapefruit and light malty goodness. Great smooth mouthfeel and the 8% ABV is well hidden. Love the balance of intense citrus floral hop and lightly sweet malt. Well made and easy drinking for a DIPA.

Struck me as a ’malty’ rather than a ’hoppy’ double IPA. Either way, the body of this brew totally buries it’s strength - but in a sweet rather than bitter way.

Bomber. Good citrus hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit. Pours clear amber with a large, soapy off white head with good retention and some lacing. Good citrus and tropical fruit hop flavor to start. Finishes dry with some pine resiny hop bitterness. Good IPA.
