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.

iím a little sick, but i canít detect much of an aroma from this brew, but i know that I can smell a little hops and fruit (a little disappointing...). pours cloudy and brownish orange, and pours as though it was viscous. has a strange flavor. a little salty and fermented tasting, and Iím seeing how previous raters tasted a soy sauce flavor. its noticeably hoppy, but like the aroma, thereís not much flavor aside from that which is also disappointing. It tastes good though, just underwhelming. Also, itís definitely thicker than most IPAís, which is one plus to me. I like it but I wish there was more to it.

second time iíve had this, first time i thought it had a strange soy saucy flavor in the middle there. smells hoppy with a bready aroma as well. pours a little thinner than one would expect. taste is a little hops up front then the soy sauce caramel thing which iím not the biggest fan of and then fruity hops. overall i thought this was too sweet and fruity to be as good as people talk about it. a good ale in the end though.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
A very good IIPA courtesy of Mr. Stitch. Aroma and taste were very good. All hops with a malty backbone that doesnít try to be equal. Pour was a medium gold with lots of bubbles and a one finger off white head. Taste was mostly bitter grapefruit hops with some thin earthiness and a dry aftertaste. Decent carbonation and very drinkable for a 9% beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a one finger off white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops followed by a sweet malt backbone. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouth feel with a moderate to strong amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good

A solid pour produces a three finger thick, light tan color that forms some nice lacing on the sides of my 25cl tulip glass. The beer is brilliantly clear and shows a nice red color, when held up to the light it shows a red copper color. The aroma smells quite smooth with a focus on bright fruit and caramel. Aromas of ruby-red grapefruit, bergamot, lots of lychee and candied orange creams. a touch of cracker like malt rounds out the finish. The aroma has a nice hop-fruit focus to it, a touch of pine / herbal notes would be nice and the overall volume of the hop character could definitely be turned up quite a bit more. This is quite nice though and is a pleasure to smell for a couple minutes.

Served lightly chilled (near 60ļF / ļC) the beer has a certain dryness to it that is offset by the sweet tasting hop fruit notes. Flavors of lychee, candied grapefruit zest, perhaps a touch of pineapple, a nice mix of essential citrus oils and even some nice, off-setting pine needle flavors and a touch of menthol. The malt is definitely secondary here (as it should be); it adds some accentuating caramelized notes that accentuate the hop fruitiness and there is a touch of cracker-like grain to the finish as well as a touch of chewy bread crust flavors that peeks through from time to time. This is quite smooth in the flavor, the bitterness is quite mellow with only a touch of a bite (at least comparatively to other Double IPAs). This has a mediumíish body to it that is just about the right lightness for a Double IPA; it has that quaffable quality to it that is critical for the style.

This is a nice Double IPA, it could use a touch more vibrant hop character for my tastes, but that might just be a freshness thing. This is quite hoppy, and quite a nice beer. I definitely like that the beer is fairly light, and does not have the heaviness that some Double IPAs have.

For not having been around long, Ninkasi brews a great beer and knows how to work with hops. If I recall correctly, the brewer used to be at Steelhead Brewing, and I think he has one-upped his former employer, at least. The Tricerahops, besides having a killer name, is quickly becoming one of my standard IIPAs. I tried it on cask at the Horse Brass in Portland recently, and it proved itself worthy, for sure. If you see it on cask, donít pass it by.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold with a tight bubbled beige head that left some heavy lacing. The hops on the nose are a bit muted, floral with a bit of citrus sneaking in, and thereís a bit of caramel and crystal maltiness. The hops seen to be pretty muted on the flavor as well. Fairly bitter with some pithy citrus rind, thereís no brightness to this at all. The malt base is fairly thin for being 9%, Iím actually pretty surprised that this is that big. Mostly comes across as light caramel and a bit of a crystal malt stale iced tea quality. Finishes fairy thin in body with a weakly bitter leafy hop note. Fairly active fizzy carbonation. Not too big of a fan of this one. Their regular IPA was much better than this and I had higher expectations.
