Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 06-21-2013

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.

Go Easy on me guys...new to rating beers : > ) I have had Kuhnhenn's Tripa last year (2013) and it was 'good' and probably what most of the ratings are based on, but this year's batch knocked my socks off. It is a BIG pineapple, sticky, lush tropical fruit bomb this year that 'I think' is wonderful for those seeking BIG Hearty beers like this.

Ok, here I go with the descriptions:

Appearance: yellow/orange and moderately rich pour with a thin head and minimal lacing.
Smell: Fruity and tropical (mango?) with a bit of alcohol astringency.
Taste: BIG wallop of Pineapple up front....wow...delightful and then quick rich sweetness, then the hops bitterness crept up to tame the sweetness to not make it too cloying. I craved that juicy pineapple rush again, YUM. After the first few sips, for me, it went back to more tropical notes of mango too and a bit of alcohol on the backside that let me know that this is not a beer to take lightly : > )
I am really, really enjoying this beer as a 'special treat' after dinner. Lush and thick and delicious and oh so pineappley at the start. A neat beer to try if you are into a special lush TRIPA.

A fruity loops TIPA! In the front, a explosion of candy and sweet fruity flavors, again, the Toucan Sam would approve. Despite the caramel and sugary sweet malt backbone in the middle, there's a dank bitterness in the back end. A clean drinking brew that extends on the already delicious DRIPA.
