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.

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.

Can. Clear amber, thin head. Strong hop aroma like a traditional IPA but with more sweetness from the yeast. I enjoyed this and would definitely have again.

Dogbrick (8269) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Sample at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours a clear amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and yeast. Medium body with flavors of grapefruity hops, yeast and malt. The finish is mildly hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

Rando7 (741) - Iowa, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Pours clear dark yellow with foamy off-white head. Aroma Belgian yeasts with citrus hops, some sweet light fruits. Taste sweet malts and Belgian yeasts, spices, light fruits. Finish mostly pine and citrus hops. Palate medium body, carbonated, very slight stickiness.

I am not a big hop lover but this was pretty well balanced and a refreshing beer.

Beerman6686 (4427) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2012
This poured a darker cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of belgian yeasty notes, and some citrusy and dusty hops. Flavor was much the same a bit sweet, and candy like with almost enough hops to make it balanced. OK

superspak (2694) - Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2012
16 ounce can into tulip, no canning date. Pours crystal clear golden orange color with a nice 3 finger dense khaki head with incredible retention that reduces to a thick cap that lingers. Some decent lacing clings to the glass; with decent carbonation streaming up. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, caramel, pine, herbal, bread, and yeasty spices. Nice and well balanced aromas, but on the weak side. Taste of big grapefruit, caramel, pine, herbal, biscuit, orange, and yeast spices. Good amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, bread, and yeast spices. Great balance of hop flavors, bitterness, and Belgian character; with a hop character being a little more pronounced. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel. Drinks fairly easily at 6.5%; with only a slight alcohol warming after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian IPA. Has the Belgian character without going over the top; and still retaining good hop flavor. I really enjoyed this one.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Tasted in October 2011 from a 16oz can shared at a tasting. Pours hazy bright orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dusty and fruity with some citrus and resin hops, along with apricot with a green cucumber note. The flavor is pretty much the same with the fruity apricot up front, moving to citrus and resin hops and bitter cucumber skin. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, fruity, and lightly bitter finish.

Can. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is light biscuit and caramel malt, herbal and earthy hops with fruity esters. Flavor is earthy and herbal hops, light malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

Can. Pours clear, light copper with fizzy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is floral hops, straw, honey, and light sweet malt. Flavor is malt forward (caramel), straw, with floral and citrus hops; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
