Impressive IPA from halfway between SF and LA! Excellent balance of bitter hops and citrus lightness without being too heavy or harsh. Incredibly smooth and a nice finish. Pours a golden auburn with minimal head. A great beer to make a night out of with a few glasses worth!

Fresh keg on tap at Harry's Hofbrau. Brilliantly clear golden amber with a clingy white head. Big bright citrus hop nose with some bready malt buried beneath. Floral aromas meet pineapple and grapefruit. Gentle bready malts hit the tongue first, followed by floral hop notes, grapefruit, pineapple. Nice medium-light body with gentle bitterness in the finish. This is quite good. Maybe not quite world class, but very well balanced and drinkable with some great flavors.

Maybe I'm a sucker for all the citrus notes and flavors of this beer but I think it's a delicious balance of the power you want and expect from an American ipa and a lighter crisp floral bouquet beer that a lesser ipa can't provide. Fully endorse it. A lot of alcohol but I don't find it gratuitous at all.

Slightly hazy caramel amber with a nice thick cap of off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Citric and catty nose, exceedingly potent. It’s rather full-bodied for the style, but the matching full carbonation lends a certain fluffiness to the mouthfeel. Rather than swimming in caramel (my #1 pet peeve about east coast IPAs), it’s very bready with a dry, toasty, and sticky finish. I’ll admit I was pleasantly surprised by the hop character of this beer; there’s a mean, almost angry bitter streak running through it and the hop flavor is an explosive combo of pungent, earthy and grapefruit goodness. The touch of heat is a minor complaint (make that very minor; I killed the growler with alarming ease). A great choice for local hop junkies.

Overall impression: Trifecta joins Sweetwater as the second representative in my top-tier of east-coast IPAs. Well done, guys.

I tried this at an event during a recent trip to SLO. It poured a rich amber color with lots of carbonation and a thick head. The smell was a strong citrusy/fruity/hoppy aroma with just a light malt and caramel smell. The mouth feel was rich and full with a malty caramel start and a citrusy hop finish with just a light bitterness. This is a nice crisp refreshing IPA. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to get my hands on some more!

Cutting to the chase, this is a great beer. A golden beer with a good head that laces very well and lingers. You can smell the hops but also some sweetness that is very pleasant. Upon tasting, grapefruit and other citrus hits the tongue and really turns the bitter hops into something great.
