COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triomphe: Belgian IPA 6.5% abv 16 oz large tulip glass This beer is made with a classic Belgian style yeast strain that gives the complexity and slight sweetness you may expect from a Belgian style ale, but then reaches deeper providing a smack-down of American hops. Served in a large Tulip glass to capture the and focus the hop aromas.

16 oz. can pours a hazy orange with big white head and a little lacing. Nose is that of a Belgian, rather than an American IPA: lots of spices, yeast, and pears. Aroma is the same, heavier on the fruits, spices and floral hops than on the the sweet malts, which are also present. Mouthfeel is sticky, and body is medium, with active carbonation (perhaps too much). A decent, distinctively Belgian-style IPA from a midwest brewer I had not tried before. Good but not great.

Body is a vibrant rustic golden color with a large amount of billowing carbonation. The nose is pears and fruity yeast notes with a bit of earthy hops and citrus american hops. bright and floral with more sweetness then bitterness all around. A light amount of citrus hops give a the only bitterness found, but the soft fruits of the belgian yeast overwhelm them. low carbination, slightly creamy, and medium bodied.

This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a head of almost all foam finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and dough. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The sharp flavor contained notes of dough and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

[4608-20120708] 16floz can. Light grainy yeast aroma has a bit of a fruit note to it. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Sweet orange honeydew melon bitter hops flavour has a light grainy fruit finish. Medium body. Tasty, nice bitter fruit balance. (6/3/8/4/15) 3.6

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a clear, orange/amber hue, a healthy layer of cream colored, cakey/moussy, persistent head foam, and decent cling to the wavey lacing. The nose was light yeasty funk, citrus, light fruit, and floral hints. The flavor was similar, adding light sweetness, a moderate, grapefruity, earthy hop bitterness, medium to light body, and a consistent dryness into the finish. Slightly thin texture, but tasty nonetheless.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a medium amber color with minimal white head. Aroma was grass and hops. Flavor was similar with a bit of sweetness as well. Not as hoppy as some hop heads would probably want. Iím not an IPA fan, but this was not bad. It was the best of the sampler brews I tried.

Tall boy can served in a FFF teku glass. A: Pours a semi hazy amber color with an off yellow head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick collar and cap that leaves some sticky webbing. S: Heavy biscuit malts and peppery yeasty up front. Light floral and bitter hops are on the finish. Sweet fruity esters are present as well with a twinge of banana. T: The base beer is pretty malty with biscuit and cracker flavors. Peppery yeast pops up mid-palate. The finish is bitter green hops and some light floral notes. M: Medium bodied with a nice quench and a yeasty drying finish. The carbonation is zesty and a little high. O: This beer looked great, but the rest was pretty ho-hum. Iím a little spoiled with Live a Rich Life/Shark Pants at my disposal, but I digress. Pretty average for this relatively new style, but I applaud the effort. A little more balance between the malts and the hops and it would be much better. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 05-23-2012

Had this on tap at Slows bbq. Poured into a pint glass and pours a medium gold color with a nice and foamy head. Nice aromas of citrus, hops, oranges and spices. It doesnít have that much depth to it, but is nice. Very good medium/full feel with nice depth and notes of citrus, navel oranges, and spices. Nice and smooth feel too. A quality belgian ipa. It was also nice to have with some brisket.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Spicy, almost funky. The hops dont dominate it. HAd it on tap and thought it was a good funky belgian but not quite ipa territory. Can. More metallic and vegetal but a very topical aroma and pleasant bitterness. upped from 3.1.
