Ninkasi Brewing Company Tricerahops Double IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Ninkasi Brewing Company Tricerahops Double IPA.
From the Ninkasi Brewing Company website:” 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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden orange with a foamy tan head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Pine and citrus hops – Pacific Northwest at its best. Scent perfection.
Taste: Excellent balance between citrus hops, pine hops, biscuit malt and sweet caramel malt.
Overall: This is one of the most approachable and drinkable double IPAs I’ve had. At 8.8% ABV Ninkasi Brewing Company’s Tricerahops Double IPA is a sneaky one as the alcohol is hidden very well by the superb balance. I would rank this up towards the top of DIPAs.
