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.


Scipio's rating

Scipio (719) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has a very Belgian appeal to it, but it is more subdued than many of that style. It contains yeast, spice, banana, pine, and caramel. The taste has much of those Belgian impressions detected in the nose, being the yeast and spices, while it goes along with pine, caramel, and grapefruit underneath. Dry and bitter with a piney yeast aftertaste. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, with active, fizzy carbonation. I wasn’t so impressed by the blend of different styles here.

Patrickctenchi (4063) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Can: Pours clear copper...with a small, off-white head. Pine, orange-candy aroma. Taste is peppery yeast, orange malt, fruit. Slightly toasty, caramel malt.....apple. Nice herbal/earthy spicing and bitter. Very tasty.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Pours light orange with little head. Has that Belgian yeast thing on the nose. The yeast is pretty strong on the tongue as well but the this hop presence kind of smacks you in the nose. Finishes clean without a lot of bitterness. I don’t think the IPA elements combine well with the Belgian yeast thing.

burg326 (3849) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured a darker orange color from the can with aromas of yeast, sugar, light citrus and malt. Flavors match the aromas yeast and bread up front followed by light hops and citrus, mild bitter aftertaste.

mikedR (1332) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Sampled right after Tree Hugger, and prefer this. Slight Belgian sweetness infuses what is otherwise a solid IPA.

Minderbinder (2004) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Can 473ml. Pours amber with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, phenols, sugar, caramel. Taste is of caramel, bitterness, malt, fruits, belgian yeast, earth. Palate: Medium body. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: Decent. Not really IPAish. Feels more like an amber ale with belgian yeast. Something is missing taste-wise.
