COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flagship Series. 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.

22 oz. bottle from dbsdelight- thanks, Dan! I then brought this up a week later and shared it at The Royale’s Tuesday night beer showcase. Pours a clear gold-amber color with a small white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, earthy hops, muddled citrus, grass, straw, sugar, and yeast. Flavor of grassy wet hops, straw, leaves, sweet malts, citrus, and fruit juice. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good DIPA.

One of the most drinkable double IPAs I have ever had. Grapefruity and not very malty. I had it on tap at The Sushi Bar in McCall, but now get it in bombers at the same place. A showcase of bright citrus hops and just enough malt to take the edge off.

nearbeer (4675) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2010
The bomber says 8.8% abv (not the 9.0 listed here). Large caramel, earthy resin, dirty orange, mango and grapefruit aroma. Flavor is the same big, juicy mix, with some raw honeycomb, tea leaf, light toasted nut and cocoa. Foggy orange-amber and light-medium bodied, with a lasting creamy top of bubbles and nice lacing. Smoothly carbonated and well-balanced with a long wooden finish that makes you want to gulp more.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010
Sampled at Fall Gerryfest 2010. Aroma and taste were very good. All hops with a malty backbone that doesn’t 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.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
On tap at the District Lounge near Hotel Deca & University of Washington in Seattle. Hazy golden color with good carbonation and rocky head. Aroma of bitter orange rind and slightly funky skunk aroma. A bit different than your typical DIPA nose, but I like it. Big, sweet malty flavor profile with a floral finish. Tasty.

jrob21 (3335) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Pours a clear dark orange with a minimal white head and a lot of lacing tracing down the glass. Aroma is nice floral and herbal character. Very smooth, crisp and easy to drink beer. A pleasant bitterness on the finish with some grapefruit. Dry and refreshing drink. The hop profile is well balanced and playful. Each hop complementing each other well. Great double IPA here.

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bomber from BevMo. Aroma is somewhat sweet with alot of hoppiness. Crisp hoppiness. Not too harsh. The finish is pretty dry. Malt presence as well. Alcohol is well hidden. Very easy to drink.

JoeinDahlem (1438) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
Heavy bitterness here without the aromatic reward of "doubling" the hops. Sweet malt backbone, quite bitter, more clumsy than balanced. Certainly not a harmonious flavor like other Ninkasi beers, but then I guess that’s not the point of the style. Not particularly drinkable. Much preferred the Total Domination.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Pours deep amber with white head, aroma of huge hops, with grapefruit, tropical fruit, and even floral and pine notes. Taste up front is big bitter grapefruit, sweet passion fruit, other tropical fruits leading into pine, slight caramel and biscuit malt to balance, and a big piny floral bitter finish. Fantastic brew.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2010
1 oz Sample at the GABF in Denver. Not much on the nose. Little citrus and carmel. Light amber red color and a bit hazy in the sample cup. Good citrus pine and carmel taste but did not seem as hoppy as most doubles. Medium carbonation, resin like. Balanced alcohol (hardly even knew it was there).
