Ninkasi Brewing releases Tricerahops Double IPA in new 19.2oz Cans

 Ninkasi Brewing Company is adding their classic Tricerahops Double as the second beer in 19.2oz cans following Megalodom Legendary IPA. Tricerahops has been around since 2007, but never in this format, and now has new art by Dark Horse Comics artist Eduardo Francisco.

More from a press release:

“Eduardo Francisco has really brought Tricerahops to life,” said Ninkasi co-founder Jamie Floyd. “We’re excited to show the Ninkasi comic universe unfold on these 19.2oz cans, as it is a story I have been developing with some help of Nikos Ridge, Ninkasi’s co-founder, over our almost-15 years in existence. This art really does the beer justice.”

Megalodom Legendary IPA, the first in the comic can series, was originally released in December 2019. Ninkasi’s comic can series with Dark Horse Comics will continue to evolve throughout 2020 and beyond, with a guardian of the Goddess to come this fall, and other merchandise to celebrate the comic universe to follow.

Ninkasi’s year-round lineup offers a full spectrum of beer styles, including their flagship Total Domination Northwest IPA alongside Tricerahops Double IPA, Prismatic Juicy IPA, Hazy Domination IPA, Pacific Rain Northwest Pale, Oatis Oatmeal Stout, Brightberry Raspberry Lime Ale, Pilsner Cold Fermented Lager, Dawn of the Red IPA, Heart and Science West Coast IPA, Juicy Domination Tropical IPA, and Megalodom Legendary IPA.

Tricerahops Double IPA 19.2oz Can

Legend has it that Tricerahops, loyal companion of the goddess Ninkasi, acquires his powers of strength and combat from beer. While research is still out to determine which hops allow for these mystical abilities (our lab is working on it), we believe this Double IPA is close. Its floral aromas collide with a splendor of earthy hop notes to create a beer suitable for a magical beast like Tricerahops himself.
