Triple India Pale Ale

What's A Triple IPA?

Eno Sarris, September 25, 2013

Green Flash Green Bullet is out, and I've seen people drinking it on the East Coast. We should see it on Northern California in time for Christmas, maybe.

Nerdy distribution jokes aside, the beer is billed as a triple IPA. At 100 IBU and 10% ABV, though, it would sit comfortably next to most double IPAs. What makes it a triple?

The first India Pale Ale was extra hopped in order to make the journey to India and still taste like an English Pale Ale when it arrived. Adding "Imperial" to the title was a thing that happened here in America, and as you can see on our leaderboards, and Imperial IPA is also known as Double IPA. At this point, the common understanding of the word Imperial is that the beer has more alcohol -- and perhaps more hops -- than your typical beer of the same style.

And so, if we're looking for Triple IPAs, we're looking for the hoppiest and bitterest beers out there. By using the leaderboard sort for all the different pale ale styles that might be relevant to this search, we can hopefully avoid any classification issues. Then we cut all beers under 10% ABV off the list to focus on the strongest pale ales. And then with a little bit of elbow and query work, we can add IBU to the available information.
