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.

For not having been around long, Ninkasi brews a great beer and knows how to work with hops. If I recall correctly, the brewer used to be at Steelhead Brewing, and I think he has one-upped his former employer, at least. The Tricerahops, besides having a killer name, is quickly becoming one of my standard IIPAs. I tried it on cask at the Horse Brass in Portland recently, and it proved itself worthy, for sure. If you see it on cask, don’t pass it by.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold with a tight bubbled beige head that left some heavy lacing. The hops on the nose are a bit muted, floral with a bit of citrus sneaking in, and there’s a bit of caramel and crystal maltiness. The hops seen to be pretty muted on the flavor as well. Fairly bitter with some pithy citrus rind, there’s no brightness to this at all. The malt base is fairly thin for being 9%, I’m actually pretty surprised that this is that big. Mostly comes across as light caramel and a bit of a crystal malt stale iced tea quality. Finishes fairy thin in body with a weakly bitter leafy hop note. Fairly active fizzy carbonation. Not too big of a fan of this one. Their regular IPA was much better than this and I had higher expectations.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 18, 2009
22oz Bottle. Ugly cheesy isovaleric aged hop aroma. A little piney, but mostly old. Not enticing. Pours a coppery amber, with a rim in white. The flavor is about the same. The isovaleric fades away and there’s some light honey sugars and a bit of caramel. Really though, this washes away into thinness. Not enough hop complexity or flavor for this to be interesting. It kind of comes across as a thin double Bitter. Soapy and alcoholic. Fairly mediocre for the style.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2009
Cloudy orange with a thin white head. Floral hop aroma. Strong malt taste up front, followed by more floral hops and a bitter/fruity finish.

alexanderj (3407) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2009
On tap at Henry’s in Portland. Amberish in color, although the lighting in the place made it hard to discern. Aroma of mesquite/wood/earth, citrus, herbs and flowers. Flavor was much of the same; extremely earthy. A good amount of hoppiness in there. Enjoyable.

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle thanks to OldMrCrow. Poured a nice orange with white head. Aroma was floral hops, and malt. Taste was a little malty but i think this bottle had some age to it. Smooth easy to drink.

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - APR 5, 2009
Smells intensely of fresh hop flowers. Bit of foam at the top, but not much head to speak of. Obvious hop taste, but without the ridiculous bitterness you get in some Double IPAs. Drinks smoothly with some maltiness. Up there as one of my favorite IPAs. So far so good from Ninkasi.

GMCC2181 (1554) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle shared by wolf-man! Red/orange color, decent head that faded away quickly. Nice aroma of light floral hops. Taste is malty...but not in a bad way. Its lost its hop bite. This bottle must have some age on it. Kind of sugary in the after taste.Smooth and easy to drink. Nice DIPA. Overall I enjoyed sipping on this beer but wouldnt go out of my way to have it again. Probably alot better when it was fresh...

SudsMcDuff (6838) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2009
interesting name for this brewery in the US .. very solid smooth bitterness .. great beautiful lacing ... medium orange brown colour like the colour of a basketball at the knicks game, beeeeautiful!, stupid guvo, the patriots suck gweedo ... bottle from Bottletrek in Oregon, whats up travis ... very easy to drink, the bitterness level is right on with a nice backbone ... hides the ABV absolutely magically ... marble sure is happy .. again, whats up with the name ninkasi, am i in japan? i sure wish i had some general toe (just fuckin with ya, Gigi.. who? bla bla bla) .. this could be quite popular around the US with draft distribution, i mean bottle is wonderful but there are DIPA’s that match this ...

Pours fairly lifeless orange with a small amount of lace. Bready-yeasty aroma balanced by a floral hoppiness hints of apple juice and ice-tea. Semi-sweet, full mouthfeel, finishes bitter. Your basic double IPA.
