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.

A: The pour is amber in color with a thin white head and some rings of lacing. S: The nose is pine all the way with a bit of earth, mild citrus, and some sweet caramel malt. T: The flavor is a bit sweet, especially considering the nose. A lot of caramel and bready malts with some piney hops and a sharp bitterness. M: The body is medium with a lower level of carbonation that lends the beer a bit of a syrupy feel. D: A nice sharp bitterness to the beer, but not all that much going on. And despite the high amounts of pine, itís still on the sweet side.

From a bottle. This is a phenomenal double IPA if you like a nice hoppy-pine bitter finish. An excellent beer.

The aroma is caramel, earth, sweatsock. The appearance is a clear amber white head. The flavor is caramel, citrus, and a floral flavor I didnít get in the aroma. The finish is a resiny hop bittering. Medium/thick in body. Good IIPA.

Bomber from Max and Andys fantasy tasting- brought by max 2x in one week to my place! What?!! Pours a hazy dull copper with a medium lasting white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, pine, but not quite super fresh- a bit dull at this point (both bottles about the same) some crackery malts, dough toast, and a mild grassiness kicking in. Flavor is similar- some ok hops upfront but you can tell they are turning a bit green and vegetal, still some grapefruit but turning a touch to a rindy grapefruit and some minty earthy pine as well. Finish is ok- a bit tacky harsh betas and cohumulone, but still pretty nice. Ok just a few months past prime perhaps.

Tricerahops pours a bright amber, transparent, with a white head. The aroma is dominated by hops, though rather weak, and there are some pine/citrus notes in there, somewhere, but, unfortunately, itís more a body odor/gym socks hoppiness. The flavor also definitely lacks for hops (Iím aware of the limitations of IBU counts and donít put much stock in them, but Iím surprised at Ninkasiís claim that this clocked in 100+). It isnít nearly bitter enough. However, Iíll give it some credit for not being sweet, either. The mouthfeel is a tad thin, and the finish is bland with those same mediocre, body odor hop flavors.

Tasted on tap at the 10th Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/6/2010. This Imperial IPA pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and floral, caramel and orange. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrus and grapefruit. Lots of orange and orange peel flavors. Nice carbonation. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting. Pours a hazy orange brown amber with a thin white head. Big spicy citrus, light pine. Very smooth and nice. Medium bodied, spicy, nice hop presence. Big bitterness on the finish, hints of quinine and grapefruit. Tasty.

Although this is a double IPA, it seems more balanced than its less aggressive counterpart. This is definitely a "double": twice the hops, twice the malt, twice the complexity. Full flavored and highly drinkable. What one would want from the style. Good representation.

Strykzone (5601) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2010
Thanks Hayduke! This beer pours an amber gold color. It has a small off white head that quickly fades and leaves a sticky lacing. Nose is sweet with some nice fruit. Spices are the first thing I taste with dry tart grapefruit right behind. Softer fruit are undertones. This is an understated IIPA that has nice flavor but is not over the top. Alcohol is hidden but is noticed by the end of the 22 oz. bottle.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light summer fruit and sweet malt. Medium bodied. OK bitterness. Sweet malt lingers with grapefruit and light summer fruit.
