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.

8/27/09 On draft at Hopunion Hop School. Aroma is super-citrus grapefruit forward with a caramel background. Appearance is hazy orange-yellow with a moderate maintained white head. Flavor is simpler than aroma, earth-sweet, with high bittering that doesn’t linger. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with a medium carb texture and peppery bite. Overall, a big brew that could lose some harshness and easily be one of the best out there.

Amber colour with reasonable head. Big whiff of hops straight away, lovely! Very well balanced this beer, has loads of pungent fresh hop aroma that carries through o the palate but the malt is there all the way to help it along. very nice!

Zymurgeist2 (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2010
On draught at Ninkasi dinner in SF at Monk’s Kettle. Pours a sunset orange with amber. Full white head that lingers. Massive hop aroma of citrus and pine. Beautifully balanced. Surprisingly medium to thin body. Pallate is a well balanced mix of mostly piney hops and some malt backbone make this a very drinkable double.

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Pours an opaque bronze color with a small beige head that leaves some scattered lacing. Aroma is sort of appley, but not in the same way that Fuggles give off. This is more of a bright, sweet apple note rather than the earthy, stewed flavor of Fuggles. Anyway, there’s also some Simcoe-esque mango notes and a fresh bread maltiness. Flavor reiterates the mango and apple and adds piney resin and modest caramel. Not really very bitter. Finishes on the sweet side. Medium body, carbonation a little low. Good, not great.

This is a fierce and definitely aptly named brew. To say it is "focused" is an understatement. Killer hops and citrus in the nose actually made me reel back a bit, awesome. Pours dark and menacing for an IPA, like it has bad intentions. Tastes like it smells, explosive bitterness without the slightest attempt to temper it. This is a totally unbalanced, grizzled beast that intends to cut me, and I think I will allow it. Ninkasi is a super creative brewery, and my first thought is this brew is very one-dimensional by their standards, but the more I get into it I feel like this is so straightforward that it defies the norms for high-end IIPAs. Bears no resemblance to their regular IPA. In your face.

Bottle, shared by Cole, thanks buddy! Pours medium to dark amber, thin off-white head, poor lacing. Nose is gentle orange, mild pine-hops, caramel malt, candy? popsicles? Odd. Flavor is very well-balanced between sweet and bitter, but the flavors come off confused and muted. A surprise miss, which is a surprise as I normally quite like Ninkasi.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
Beer #6 of IPA night in good old Lethbridge AB. This one thanks to Cole. Pours a copper colour with a small white head with some yeast sediment. The aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy. Sweet fruit candy (like red jube-jubes), spice and apples on the noes. The flavor is sweet like the nose lets on, like a candy beer. Very fruity and a piney bitter finish. Meh

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2010
like nice redish colour suspended sediment. Nice hop aroma but a bit dull . Flavour is not nice very thick and yeasty tasting it almost tastes like human sweat I like the little snipir about the Sumerians butcall in all it is sweaty and a bit malty. Not a great IPA. It is very hoppy but still not very impressed.

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Bomber. Amber, short head, no lace. Malty nose, body and finish; whisky, brandy, dates, strawberry jam; faint hops. Faint licorice aftertaste. Medium to light body, slightly oily, flat, sweet more than bitter - surprising for a Double IPA. A decent beer, but not a DIPA. May have been stored unrefrigerated.

Pours cloudy, head dissipates quickly. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Taste is very intensely hoppy, citrus notes are very apparent as well. Wonderful double IPA.
