We don’t always name our beers in the aviation theme, but, when we do, we try to make them interesting. In this case, we’ve got a depth of trivia background to share.
Tropical fruit notes of pomelo, tangerine, passionfruit, and grapefruit greet you from the first sip of this Imperial IPA featuring El Dorado, Amarillo, Comet, and Trident hops. Supporting grassy and earthy hop flavors emerge with a clean bitterness and an equally-present biscuity malt backbone.
Contributing the most to the flavor as the primary hop variety, Trident hops are a unique blend sourced from the Pacific Northwest with fruity, citrus, tropical, and passionfruit notes aplenty.
This beer gets its name from the Hawker Siddeley Trident, the first commercial jet to fly with three engines. Innovative and tweaked over the years into many different versions, the original Trident flew its maiden voyage almost exactly 60 years ago on January 9, 1962. It was primarily used overseas and competed with the trijet Boeing 727.
Nicknamed “The Gripper” due to its longer take-off rolls, the Trident is known as the first airliner certified for “automatic landing,” and could operate in zero visibility conditions.
It’s this pioneering spirit we designed HS Trident to embody with the use of the new Trident hop blend, which gets its name from the three unique hop varieties.
