Kuhnhenn TRIPAKuhnhenn TRIPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Kuhnhenn Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
kbrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.25%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Dark auburn. Pours heavy, high viscosity hop oil. Smell has some piney citrus, hop distilled in a way, caramel. This does that dance of "isn't a triple IPA the same as a really hoppy barleywine?" Main difference here is the body is a bit less cloying. It's pretty creamy and light for the size.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - That is an ugly beer. Clear. Gray with a pinkish tint. Strange. Not much of a head.

Smell - Kind of a fruity aroma. Some hops. Some booze. Not much of a malt aroma beyond the fruitiness.

Taste - Hoppier here, but retains the fruitiness. Sweet. Tough to discern the hop flavor. Really strange flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light, but still sweet and boozy. Strange combo.

Overall - Just not digging it. I liked DRIPA, but this is too weird.

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.
