Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
The newest member of the DRIPA family, this is the next step up– a Triple Rice IPA. Brewed as a bigger, more intense version of DRIPA, yet still employing the same proprietary cereal mash method, lending to the dry snap at the finish. The aroma is ALL hops; big sticky, citrusy hops. A nice malt sweetness occurs throughout the taste, with cracker-crumb notes complemented by the same huge hop characters in the aroma. This extremely limited beer has only been brewed once, so get it before it’s gone.

Very murky orange brew with small to no head. No lacing either. Thin appearance.

Lots of white grape, passion fruit, bready, grainy, solid.

Dry, lots of white grape flavors. Crisp and clean. Carbonation is nearly perfect and way light. Sweetness is light and balanced well with slight bitterness. Slow creeping heat with oaky vanilla flavors.

Not quite the creamy deliciousness I was expecting, but still quite nice and fitting for the style. Another great brew from Kuhnhenn, recommended, but not worth the $9/oz...

Thanks to abanton for sending a couple of Kuhnhenn treats my way. 12 oz. bottle with the typical Commodore 64 label. I have a soft spot for that old beige 'computer'.

Poured into my lovely gold-lettered Kuhnhenn goblet, the beer is a nice light golden orange, although I left a fingernail of sludge in the bottom of the bottle. As with most of the brewery's beers, carbonation has taken a vacation. DNose is nigh unto delicate, mostly light, fresh-cut spring flowers in a vase of sugar water. Not bad.

Triple Rice IPA (TRIPA) brings a booming fruity sweetness to the genre. Mango, pineapple, half the Byerly's fruit section is flash-frozen in raw sugar cane & tossed whole into this beer. Apparently. Rich pine & a modicum of bitterness breaks up the sugar bomb before it hits cloying on the Richter scale. The finish is grainy, & sweet, again. Despite my initial ambivalence, I seem to be consuming said twelve ounces quickly.

Fruity & sweet is the name of the game. A good beer & worthy effort at whacked out madness, but really, this is a pretty tame, sugary IIPA.

4.03/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 6/17/2013, best before 9/21/2013.

A: Pours a clear sort of golden color. Big fizzy white head. Head fades out pretty quickly. Moderate retention and almost no lacing at all.

S: Nice juicy hops. A little subdued, probably due to the age. Grapefruit and pine mainly. Touches of tropical fruit.

T: More big hops up front. Grapefruit again, lots of it. Resinous pine. Light cereal grain malt despite 11.25% ABV. Lots of bitter resin floating around in the aftertaste with hints of pine mixing in. A bit of tummy warming alcohol but no real noticeable flavor.

M: Smooth and easy drinking for such a big beer. Quite a wave of drying bitterness. Mouth coating oily aftertaste.

O: Huh, interesting. Such a mild malt flavor in an 11.25% ABV brew is impressive. Drinks super easy for such a big DIPA (or TRIPA I suppose). Very intriguing style. I can't quite decide if I like it or love it. I think a fresher bottle would have a clearer answer. Worth seeking out though, an interesting concept executed well I think.
