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.

Bottle, kieferuga somehow snuck this into my box after our tasting, thanks! Amber pour, with a little white head. Aroma is mandarin oranges, citrus hops, and some sweet malt. Flavor is the same, both sweet and biscuity malt, lots of nice mandarin orange flavor, and some more resinous bittering hops. Pretty delicious beer.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2008
22 ounce bottle. Pours a dense hazy copper with a resinous off white head. Rich, robust hop aroma of pine cleaner and candies grapefruit. Flavor is full of pine and citrus peal flavors. Aggressive lingering bitterness. A little bit of malt for balance. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. Balanced finish at first, but then the bitterness comes back for an encore. Really good. Sure to please most hopheads.

draft @ uber - another good one from ninkasi; clear orange with frothy white head; sticky, grassy hops; on the sweet side and only bitter at the end; strength is obvious and body on the thin side; pretty nice overall

luttonm (2170) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 29, 2008
Pint at Brouwer’s Hopfest. Perfect balance of floral and piney hops. smooth like Pliny but not as incredible. Deep amber color with touch of something like cough syrup at the end (in the best of ways!). Lovely.

caesar (4954) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2008
Bottled from NoiZe. Cloudy orange color, short head. Flowery aroma, hoppy. Not the bitterness I expected. Very soft. Nice balance though, but again very soft.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2008
Brought this one back from the States. Amber, orange colored brew. Very hoppy, floral aroma. Sweet, smooth well balanced hoppiness and floral notes. Nice one.

IndianaRed (2330) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Hazy orange amber viscous pour. Small thin white head with a notice ablly modest carbonation. Modest sweet malty carmel and pine aroma. Lots of IBUs and a noticeable ABV bite. Decent hoppy flavor but not the fresh west coast bite of my favorites of the style. Full bodied and slick. Soft carbonation

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle: Pours a copper caramel color with light sticky head and nice lacing. The nose is very hoppy with lots of citrus and grapefruit, subtle orange and pommello. The flavor is sweet and resinous with a light enough body that it’s still in the IPA mouthfeel but ample hops in the nose and sweet dry hopped notes in the flavor. Finishes plenty hoppy and has an overall clean and resinous tail. Nice!

As good a looking as there has ever been. Roasty light sweet caramel malt backbone with hints of light toffee. Bready and grainy but with a very mild nuttiness as well. Hops are very floral with moderate citrus.and light pine. I would hesitate calling this a Double IPA, more like a 1.5X IPA. Still a fantastic drink

Had this as a little back-to-back bomber taste test with my brother. while comparing it to Avery’s Maharaja. Ninkasi has a little bit of an advantage in the drinkability department, but overall this was a tad bit weak for a double IPA. The balance was very very nice...showing some complexity and subtle hop exposure, as well as a suitable malty backbone to showcase it all. But the flavour was a few degrees below the "Holy hell that’s good!" level. The finish was the most interesting part of it all; with a strange sort of false start, then waiting a few seconds and suddenly..whooosh--here’s that bitterness you were waiting for.
