Triple Rock & Alehouse Liar's Moon Red
Once again, too hoppy for a red in my opinion. However at least bitterness isn’t astringent and is somewhat pleasant. Berkeley.

Triple Rock Rivethead Red
On tap @ Triple Rock. Clear red/amber colored beer with some khaki foam on top. A little bit above your typical brewpub amber ale here, but not going to get too crazy about this. It has some herbal, floral, woody, and citrusy hop aromas. But, those qualities are all sort of muddled and mixed together. Get mostly just a sweet toast and caramel malt character to this beer. Sort of an herbal, woody, and earthy finish. It’s fine.

Triple Rock Reverse Nelson
On tap @ Triple Rock. Clear, pale, straw colored beer with a white head. Found this to be a nice, light, clean beer. Has a bit of pear ester to it, some apple as well. But citrus forward hops with aromas of orange and tangerine. Has a bit of melon and fruity pebbles, too. Light sweetness of bready malts and the fruity hops and esters. Enjoyable offering.

Triple Rock Monkey Head Arboreal Ale
Bottle @ Triple Rock. Thanks to the guy next to me at the bar for sharing a bit with me. Pours a bright, clear, orange color with a short-lived white head. This beer is mostly just sweet more than anything. I get a whole lot of candied orange, caramel, and simple syrup. There’s a big time sugar quality to the flavor as well. Some sweetened dried fruits like orange and peach, some baked apple as well. I wouldn’t order this for myself, but at like $7 for a $ 750 ml of high boost beer...I can see why it’s popular.

Triple Rock Cut the Sunshine
On tap @ Triple Rock. Sort of a cola colored beer. There’s a very, very roast forward aroma to this. It’s almost burnt tasting and smelling, in fact. I get a bit of peach, lemon, and banana. But this beer is really about the roast and burnt qualities, which I’m not a huge fan of.

Triple Rock Specifically Pacifica
On tap @ Triple Rock. Pours a golden color with some white foam. Opens up with aromas of honey, grass, and lemon peel. There’s a nice juicy orange quality to it, too. Fairly bready malt profile. Aroma is fine but nothing great. Flavor is a little more hop forward, interestingly. There’s a good bit of lemon, orange, and fresh grass. Lightly herbal, too. Mild bitterness, some sweet bread, and a touch of biscuit.

Triple Rock EL 342
On tap @ Triple Rock. Clear golden beer with white foam. Woah, this is really caramel heavy and super malty. Quite a sweet beer, which I wasn’t expecting. Don’t really get a whole lot of hop character at all, which is kind of a bummer as I like both El Dorado and HBC 342. I guess there’s a touch of citrus zest and some grassy bitterness, but totally overshadowed by the syrupy malt character.

Triple Rock Star Belly
On tap @ Triple Rock. Light yellow beer with a white head. Really a much more fruit forward beer than the Plain Belly. Tons of apricot, orange, and lemon. Has some grassy and pithy bitterness to it. Get a decent amount of bready malt and some mild to moderate sweetness, but really just a lot better mouthfeel than the plain version. Not too bad, definitely better than Plain Belly.

Triple Rock Plain Belly
On tap @ Triple Rock. Clear pale yellow beer with a white head. Kind of a lemony beer. There’s a lot of orange peel, definitely some lemony twang, and some grass. Quite a dry beer. A decent bit of bready malt and some cracker. Finishes kind of acidic, actually. Not terribly bitter either. Just a kind of forgettable beer all around.

Triple Rock Septemberish
On tap @ Triple Rock. Clear golden orange beer with some white foam. The nose on this is crazy fruity. Tons of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and peach. Really nice citrus all the way through. Has a little bit of a dankness as well. Light bitterness and oily quality of orange rind. Nice juicy grapefruit flavor to it as well. Really crushable beer.

Triple Rock 515 Mandarina
On tap @ Triple Rock. Cloudy golden beer with a white head. Has a lot of sweet orange, some lemon, and grass. There’s a light bitterness to it as well as some sweet malt and canned fruit. Get maybe some pear? Has a nice white grape note to it as well. Maybe some citrus rind on the back end. Pretty nice, easy drinking beer.

Triple Rock Single Hop Experience - Waimea
On tap at Triple Rock. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a bit herbal and earthy. Like fresh soil with maybe some onion and citrus. Not really what I was expecting from this hop. The flavor is floral and earthy with a little pepper and citrus. Low bitterness. Light pale malts with a hint of sweetness. Ok. A little disappointed with this hop.

Triple Rock Novemberish
On tap at Triple Rock. It pours a clear, light pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma has bright citrus with background tropical fruit and florals. Very nice. The flavor has solid floral and citrus with some pear and white grape. Light floral bitterness. It shows a little bit of sweetness in the finish, but very light maltiness. Pretty nice. Great hop character, but the carbonation was a little low which hurt the mouth feel a bit.
