Batman, Superman, Prince…names we all recognize but we know them just as well by their symbols or logos. In that same spirit, Triple Crossing Beer (Richmond, VA) unleashes their semi-secret beer, ⟁.
For years, Triple Crossing has been creating and tweaking their hop-forward beers to achieve the perfect balance. For this recipe, they focused on trying to marry the hops, malt, and yeast in such a way that is unique and not just a derivative of another of their recipes.
The brewers wanted to pack a brighter hop flavor and also a hint of their house yeast strain in ⟁. Focusing this time on trying a few processes they have been working on, including dry hop frequency and timing, they have produced this dry fruity beer that has notes of ripe tropical fruits and pulpy grapefruit.
This highly drinkable beer is the “first of its name” and no doubt the start of more interesting and intricate creations that will showcase this renewed concentration on the subtle nuances of the brewing process.
