Ninkasi Brewing Company Tricerahops Double IPA

Type: Double IPA
Origin: Eugene, Oregon
Price: $4.99 per 22 oz

Hey what's your favorite dinosaur? I think I have a new answer to that question, and it is Tricerahops. Everything about this follows the textbook example of a perfect double IPA. The head is soft and inviting. The color is a wonderful fiery orange that begs to be drunk. The smell is wonderfully floral and sweet. There is an absurd bitterness all around that you expect from this category of beer. The flavors are incredibly complex that you would have to go eat a bunch of flowers at the local nursery to pick out the exact flavors. The bitterness is a numbing bitterness, but surprisingly, a nice nutty maltiness pops through once you are thoroughly numbed.
