Just a quick post because I know some of you are bonkers for Triple IPA. In February we helped organize the Washington Hop Mob Triple IPA Roadshow. The series of events showcased Washington-brewed Triple IPAs from more than 30 different breweries. Now, nearly four months later, you still have a chance to sample a couple of the Hob Mob beers.
Tonight at Zeek’s Pizza (upper Queen Anne) they’ll tap a rare keg of Blimey That’s Bitter from Reuben’s Brews. Also tonight, The Beer Junction in West Seattle hosts a tasting event with 7 Seas Brewing where they tap into a few different beers, including the Ghost Pepper Imperial Stout and the Trident Triple IPA.
Zeek’s Pizza is located at 1915 Queen Anne Ave N.
The Beer Junction is located at 4511 California Ave SW.
Trident Triple IPA
“Brewed in our 8.5BBL System, this dry, strong and hoppy beer includes Columbus, Nugget, Simcoe, Chinook, Azacca, Citra & Mosaic in the boil kettle followed by 2 dry hops, once with Simcoe & Citra and then again with Amarillo & Mosaic. 10.3% ABV.”
Blimey That’s Bitter Triple IPA
10.5 % ALC BY VOL.
Malt: Two Row, Caramel Malt, Munich
Malt, Wheat Malt
Hops: Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, Chinook
An intense citrus, pine and tropical aroma are followed by a smooth medium full mouth feel. First brewed in early 2014, BLIMEY THAT’S BITTER has become a loved brew! Using ludicrous amounts of hops – about 6lbs per barrel – we focus on hop flavor and aroma,with 90% of these hop additional are in the last 10 minutes of the boil and late.
