Alvarado Street Brewery Triplets

What the brewers say

“A monster double IPA brewed with quite possibly our favorite hop combination ever, Nelson, Galaxy, and Citra.”

What our panel thought

“Light diesel and sulfur-like notes of garlic and green onion slowly fade, allowing aromatics of grapefruit, earthy pine, and a touch of lemon-pepper to emerge. Orange, lemon, pepper, garlic, onion, and pine all blend together in the flavor to create a wildly complex, cohesive, and interesting flavor profile that keeps you coming back for another contemplative sip. The soft mouthfeel and lightly sweet malt body form a perfect canvas to support the complexity of the hop notes. The near-perfect balance of bitterness cleans the palate without stripping away the nuanced complexity of flavors.”

What our editors thought

“Mango-papaya with onion and grassy counterpoints—big and punchy. The sip pulls sweeter fruit but with a delicate restraint, buffered with a gauzy sheen and balanced with a present yet invisible bitterness.”
