(notice the disappointing lack of cliche clever cartoon hop related triceratops....boo!)--- it pours out a hazy dull iced tea color with a sticky off white head which leaves behind lacing that looks like a moth eaten blanket. it appears to clear up as the temperature rises...odd.
right off the bat this smells like dried apricots cooked in orange juice. later, as it sits, that aroma gets mixed with floral notes, mild pine, freshly cut carrots, grain and toast.
the palate is sweeter than i like ideally but it hides the 9% abv very well. the flavor is a combination of canned peaches (in light syrup), sweet cereal grain, mild pine and its waxy bitterness, floral hops and a finish of grapefruit pith which lingers for a bit.
it is medium bodied and somewhat crisp yet it lacks brightness and a defining character... rather a run of the mill malty imperial ipa. though iíll bet it can stand some spicy wings or buffalo pizza. 7/3/7/3/14/3.4 gabbama (203) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grapefruit with herbal hops and caramel. The malt comes through more on the flavor with sweet caramel. Also has lots of floral and citrus hops. Soft, medium carbonation and a long grapefruit rind finish. Overall, an enjoyable, but fairly average DIPA. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Poured into a lager glass by my ggirlfriend, she thought a fancy beer should go in a fancy glass, just chose the wrong glass. Apearance is nice, thin head, but lots of lacing. Aroma is nicely hopped. Flavour is mildly bitter, and didnít finish as dry as I would expect. Overall a good IPA, I donít know about the double part... But a good beer! BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2011
[Bottle] Moderately clouded orange appearance, decent head formation. Caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Medium bodied, slightly undercarbonated palate, caramel malt is prevalent along with slight spicy notes before a moderately citric finish. Aftertaste is more caramel than hops. Unimpressive DIPA. alexsdad06 (10259) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white film. The aroma is heavy with tropical fruit hops and caramel. The flavor is more tropical fruit hops, caramel, grass, and a touch of earthy bitterness. Leans slightly toward the syrupy side. Decent beer, nothing outstanding. Worth a try.

1 pint 6 fl. oz. Pours reddish amber and clear. Taste is very bitter but suttle on the business end (finish). Alcohol content is high but undetectable on the palate. The drink is pleasent and goes well with pizza and wings, and I suspect everything else. Very Good. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Tasted on 5/19/11 from a 650mL bomber bottle purchased at BevMo Tempe. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of even lace. The nose is earthy and bitter grapefruit and orange hops along with a solid caramel, with a hint of maple, malt. The flavor is nicely balanced with earthy grapefruit and bitter resin hops along with a solid backbone of caramel malt. The body is full with lively carbonation and a long bitter grapefruit and caramel malt finish. dwyerpg (6045) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 19, 2011
This has a sweet aroma, smells like Dogfish 90. This is a nice beer, a strong flavor, a bit of alcohol. A bit sweeter than what Iím feeling right now, hurting my teeth a tad. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Pretty much exactly the same as regular Tricerahops, except with just that slight bit more of awesome hop bite. Iíd say this is a disappointment, but when the original was already so tasty, why mess with success? anderson01 (356) - Spirit Lake, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2011

Dirty golden in color with a small off white head. Extremely well balanced in both aroma and flavor between citrus hops and more grassy and piney ones. Not really sure if I like this or Total Domination more, but I know that I am extremely happy to have this brewery in my adopted hometown.
Clear orange in color with a minimal white head. Good lacing. Strong floral nose. Orange zest comes out in the aroma. Medium bitter notes with medium sweet notes that follow. Has a thin texture with lively carbonation. The beer finishes long and bitter. Overall it was a good beer. I love hoppy beer.
