Triple Pearl is born from a cross between the classic Perle female and an unknown male. She resulted in a rather high alpha acid (likely from the father) and a much, much more pronounced aroma from the mother. Expect Triple Pearl to be very bitter-forward with a slight astringency and pleasant mouth-feel. Aroma is very typical of traditional Perle but with greater emphasis on melon, sweet citrus (clementine), and Christmas spices like clove, allspice, etc. A very slight earthiness tempers this hop into something suitable for most beer styles especially that “new thing” brewers look for in IPAs.
