A strong, aggressive beer, (featuring 3 hop additions during the boil) for those who like a lot of hop flavor in their beer. Alcohol: 5%, IBU’s 48. Includes 8 lbs. of our blended malt extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml. of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.060. Ease of Brewing: Beginner

This is an outtake from a photo session we did with Triple Hopped Ale. We thought it was a bit of a blooper, but you can see the thick, robust head this beers malt and hop resins create and maintain.

Aggresive Aggresive Aggresive

Review by BRIAN I. on 9/19/2005

Pros: I found this beer is getting better with age (still drinking it). Seems best time to drink is after bottling for 3 weeks followed by 1 week in the fridge. Heavy malt and heavy hop character so I loved it. SG ~1.059; FG ~1.015. After priming it ended up ~5.7-5.8 ABV. I dubbed mine "Wolverine Ale" because its flavor and aroma is just as described, aggresive.

Cons: It is strong flavored so I would not recommend to those looking for a mild ale or lager. I was a little worried about the yeast strain provided at first due to the extremely fast initial ferment (>24hours) but it turned out ok in the end.

A little tricky, but worth the wait

Review by Wyatt E. on 9/24/2005

Pros: I agree with the first reviewer: this ale gets better with age. At its best, a delightfully pungent and strong brew.

Cons: Can have almost skunky overtones if not conditioned adequately. Seems to need a good week in the fridge after 3 weeks in the basement.

Triple hopped secret

Review by skipat718 on 2/2/2006

Pros: This ale is the best that I have ever brewed. The secret to preventing any off taste is to remove the brew from the troub after one week and put it in a secondary fermenter for the rest of the fermentation period. This will give you a great hopped beer with a terrific smooth finish.

Outstanding taste, easy to make

Review by jcvalenti on 2/25/2006

Pros: I hadn't brewed a batch in over four years, so I was looking for something relatively basic to make. As I'm a big fan of hopped up ales (like Bell's Two Hearted or Dreadnought), this seemed a natural. Just had a tasting with some friends, and all agreed it had phenomenal taste and presentation. I did not even transfer to a secondary fermenter - single fermentation worked just fine for me.

Cons: I had to leave the thermostat up near 72 for a wekk during a cold Michigan winter just to properly bottle. Other than that, it was perfect.

Oh my it is good

Review by Scott A. on 7/22/2006

Pros: First batch I ever brewed, and it is great. My friend, who has been brewing for years, suggested we add even more hops, which we did, and he says it may be the best he has tasted. We did transfer to second fermenter.

Cons: None to think of.
