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.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Pours a cloudy orange brown with a thin head. Aroma of pale malts, caramel malts, and floral and piney hops. The flavor has these notes as well with a moderate malty body, lots of malts, but not a lot of sweetness to be specific, and a piney floral finish. Not big bitterness, but more toward the moderate side. Pretty drinkable, alcohol was almost unnoticeable. It was just not what I really look for in an IIPA, but well done nonetheless.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2008
I have no recollection of this beer, but have a readable written rating of it so I know itís legit. Piney hops that are fairy subtle. Hazy dark gold witout much head. Very solid. Their hops tend to be a notch below style: IIPA is more like an IPA; IPA is more like a Pale. Full bodied.

(22oz bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, and florals. Flavor of hops (pine, grapefruit) and caramel malt with a dry, bitter finish.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2008
CelticBrew brought this bomber over to share the other day (4/28/08) - thanks Jim. Clear orange pour with a sturdy white head that lasted a good while - nice looking beer. Pretty hop dominated aroma of pine and grapefruit rind, yet there is a substantial malt base of caramel based aromas as well. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, and a thick, but not sticky mouthfeel. Flavor has significant sweetness, but the balance is there with a healthy dose of the aforementioned grapefruit bitterness. Iíve some of these DIPAís to be overly sweet, but this was not in spite of all the malt used. Very tasty.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2008
Golden-amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is thick with vegetal-earthy-piney hops. Flavor is big, earthy, & sweet - classic NW hoppiness with a fair dose of sweet malts. Pretty nice DIPA.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 28, 2008
Pours with a golden-amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. Itís bitter yet slighlty sweet wtih a nice lemon and pine note. Meidum bodied and slightly dry.

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2008
Pours from 22 oz slightly hazy, but medium golden amber. Forms medium to small foamy head. Aroma of hops, pine resins, slight grapefruits, and Rhine. Flavour is of soft pine resins with biscuits. Seems more like a dry IPA, with tons of resins.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing this. Deep amber colour, thin white head. Aroma is nicely hoppy. Light grapefruit, white grape and a bit of orange peel. Lean pale malts but with a nice fresh breadiness as well. Flavour is quite a bit more subtle than the aroma would suggest. A light honeyish character on the back. Itís a nice, well-made IIPA.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 20, 2008
22 oz. bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours hazy amber with a moderate beige head that diminishes to a thin skin and small island of bubbles and spots of lace. Aroma dominated by hops, with some toasty malts noticible as well, evergreen, lemon peel, grapefruit pith and a bit of dust. Surprisingly not so malty for a DIPA, again some toasty malts and just a hint of toffee, with bright hoppiness most pronounced, earthy pine, florals and orange zest lead to a lingering astringent finish. Medium to full body with gently tingly carbonation.
