Triple Hop'd LagerTriple Hop'd Lager
Notes: Brewed in collaboration with Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.

A collaboration beer between Bitburger Brewery and Sierra Nevada Brewery, this lager is highlighted by a combination of American hops - Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook - paired together with ‘Siegelhopfen’ – Bitburger’s proprietary and unique hop blend that’s sourced from a farm just a few minutes from the brewery! Unique to this one-time brew, that same farm provided the Cascade hops that lends Triple Hop’d Lager its desirable floral and citrus/grapefruit profile.

A stunning beer.

A beautiful nose on this one, reminiscent of a brew house. The mix of that sweet wort and hops being boiled, quite a distinct note that I have picked up across multiple cans. Love it!

You can pick up the cascade character in this one, that signature 'pale ale' note. But given the other hops used, there is a lot of complexity. A beautiful mix of noble hop spiciness, with a wonderful floral citrus on the back end.

The malt backbone is complex enough, while still maintaining enough dryness to keep it refreshing. It's bitterness is firm, but not "IPL" territory to me, perhaps because there is just enough residual sweetness to balance everything out. You can tell this has for sure been hopped quite aggressively. But again, more later/dry hop if anything. Big flavors and aromatics.

Looks great in the glass, with a hazy orange glow and long lasting, rocky head.

This one is a home run!

This is everything I never knew I needed in a beer. The malty backend tastes so much like classic SNPA, but the hoppy punch up front is so floral and lemongrassy. Its classic and old world hop tasting. Very European tasting hops.

It's a slightly hoppier Boston lager is exactly what this tastes like. I'll drink this all summer if they keep putting it out.

Haze golden orange with a thick rocky white head. Great retention.

Smells of bell pepper, grass, and pine.

Tastes of bell pepper flesh upfront, followed by biscuit malt and a hint of honey. Lots of grass, citrus zest, and pine, with some lingering bitterness.

Medium-light fell, smooth carbonation, slightly sticky and resinous.

An excellent hoppy pale lager. They really knocked it out of the park.

Poured from the 11.2 oz. can dated 2020.01.28 (Best Before: 2021.01.27) into a pint glass. Rather murky light orange appearance. One inch head that dissipated quickly leaving thick lacing. Light notes of biscuit but aroma is pretty subdued. Taste, however, is pungent hop bitterness & spice like a good, cold beer should taste, IMO. Mouthfeel also reminds me of good beers from days gone by - crisp, thin, and refreshment that lasts awhile. Very impressed with this collaboration and hopeful that it is available deep into summer.

Can/ Looks like Bitburger but with a little haze. Lasting head and lace. Herbal citrus aroma is stronger than the malts. Crackery bready malts sit behind slightly abrasive herbal an citrus hops. Light body. Fairly big carbo that cuts the malt nicely in the original actually bites with the extra hops. Good but not an improvement on the original.

11.2 oz. can
Moderate pour yields a nearly two inch white head over a bright body with very little haze and fairly nice lacing. Nose of hops first and foremost with a bit of cracker represented as well as a slight citrus aroma with some floral notes also. Taste follows nose very closely with just a little spice on the finish. Feel is almost adequate and would definitely like it not as thin. Overall, this is a pretty nice spring or summer quencher.
