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.

22oz. Bottle: Pungent aroma of hops, pine, skunk, hop oil, resin, grass, light herbs, grapefruit, and a hint of pale malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a small, dense, lightly creamy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is heavily bitter and slightly sweet. Tastes of hops, pine, skunk, hop juice, light grass, slight grapefruit, slight pale malts, slight resin, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium to full body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, slight resin, hop oil, light sugar, and slight bubblegum finish is lightly dry. 9%ABV is totally hidden.

BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2009
IBGF 2009: Amber hue with golden highlights, solid frothy head and nice lace. The aroma has notes of mango and tangerines, grassy and herbal hops, biscuity and crystal malts, and once again a mineral vapour. The taste is even fruitier than the Domination IPA with a yeasty and somewhat salty note. Astringent metallic finish but quickly covered up by the lingering fruity and hop spice qualities. The mouth feel is soft and chewy with a very dry metallic finish. A solid brew overall but not the hop bomb I expected from the PNW.

From a bomber I got at Sam’s in Chicago ’bout 6 weeks ago. Poured with a nice off-white head and some lace. Color is a medium hazy amber. Aroma is a really nice caramel and hop. Flavor is much more interesting: not as sweet as the nose suggests; a little dry up front and a sweetish finish. There’s a little fruit in there - citrus and maybe a little crisp pear. Body is good too - almost a champagne carbonation, full effervescence, not thin, but not heavy. Great American IPA finish. Very good beer. Don’t pick up the alcohol.

7/18/2009: Ninkasi Tricerahops pours a tarnished golden color. The medley of flavors and aroma characteristics include sweet caramel, tons of sweet orange citrus, red grapefruit, and tangerine. This is dangerously drinkable for a Double IPA - so much so that I would go so far as to call this a sessionable DIPA! Delicious! This was my favorite new beer of the day...

Draught sample(s) at the 14th Annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. Rating #156 for this beer.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle shared by DuffmanSw. Pours cloudy copper with a dense tan head. Aroma is loads of citrus, somewhat floral, with sweet caramel malt in the background. Flavor is more bitter than expected. Tons of grapefruit. Some caramel, not as sweet as aroma suggests, long bitter finish. Chewy with low carbonation.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Sampled in a big bottle. A pretty good IIPA. Pours light brown with a golden hue. A fair amount of head and sedementation. Big hops on this one and sweet aftertaste. Well worth a try.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bomber. Poured medium peachy golden with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit with excellent balance between sweetness and spicy hoppage.. warmth brought out candied caramel and some floral character. The flavor opened with tangy, bitter pine resin and tart grapefruit meat, opening into darker grapefruit meat, caramel, and mild cereal at the core.. spicy floral and citrusy bitterness shot off in all directions and enveloped the tongue.. juicy back-end with residual sugars and memorable resiny bitterness. Medium-plus bodied, again with very good balance on the palate.. spicy, juicy, and engaging. Great stuff!

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a copper color and a medium head. Aromas of grapefruit and some floral notes. Nice flavors of some strong hops but offset by some sweetness form the malts. Hides the alcohol well, with a nice full mouthfeel. Some bitter finish. What an DIPA should be, very good.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 I rated this before and gave it a bad rating? Not sure why. Today my bottle is very delicious. Sweet, hoppy and bitter. Perfect example of a double. Very fresh.
