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.

Pours hazy copper with a sizable, light-tan head that sticks around for awhile. Aroma is dominated by floral hops, with hints of pine and yeast. Flavor of biscuit, light caramel sweetness, grassy hops, slight citrus. Mildly spicy and bitter finish. Light-bodied. Somewhat sweet, a bit thin, not tremendously hoppy...but delicious, well-balanced, and very drinkable.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2012
16oz can from rayl101. Pours a clear copper color with off-white head and nice carbonation. Some lacing is left behind as the head falls. Aroma is carmel, some citrus, wood. Taste follow suit, but is not overly bitter. Its a bit thin which detracts from the beer although it does make it go down easily. Missing something.

Amber with minimal head. Not quite as hoppy as most IPAs. Slight sweetness to the body.

16 oz can. Pours amber with a white head. Light grassy, floral hop aroma. Flavor is similar, floral, grassy, hints of citrus hops. It’s an alright pale ale on its own, but I’m not sure where the "Belgian" is supposed to come in.

Herbal and slightly medical nose with light honey malt. Really quite hoppy, has to be hallertau, malt is a bit dull, really the only detracting point. Solid.

16oz can, shared by ryan: Pours a clear pale bronze with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some mild grassy and citrusy hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with some pale malty sweetness and a touch of clove spice before a drier earthy bitter finish.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Can thanks to Ryan. Clear orange with suddy, white head. Weak lace. Nose is mild orange with celery. Taste is astringent, resinous, quite dry. Straightforward. Not a lot of yeast character. Normal citrus and astringent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. can pour into my Paulaner stein. A slightly above average Belgian IPA. Had on tap at Duke’s Canoe Club in Portland, MI in July ’11, much better on tap. Maybe having it out of a can turned me off slightly, still getting used to canned crafts.

Pleasant IPA, an American IPA moderated by the Belgian yeast flavour. Light coloured body and light coloured though substantive head. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty good drinkability.
