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.

Draft to taster at Brewery Vivant. Looks good; orange with white lacing. Smells solid; grassy hops. Tastes okay, but a little grassy. Mouthfeel is average. Good, not great. The Belgian yeast doesnít stand out as a smoothing agent, but itís still good.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewery (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a rich amber orange hue, darker with a gentle haze. Mellow carbonation, frothy offwhite head dies as a ring, laces ok. Very nice glow in body and edges. Aromas throw gentle fruit, a bit of ester, some firmer grapefruit and lemon. Gentle florals, mellow bitter hoppy nose to start but it is a bit cold. A bit more fruit, oranges and rind throw into the fold as we move on. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter with a firm hop presence. Fuzzy peach, firm grapefruit, lemon rind. Some good floral dryness, decent to medium bitterness hits the palate off the bat. Firmer dryness, the malt body is bready, a touch toasty and carmelized. Firm dryness carries on into the middle, a good bitter hop presence provides synergy. But a firm malt bill also offers some balance. Bread, dry earthy hop presence continues to present itself. Backend is much more dry, light bodied. Some soap, florals, decent citrus but itís definitely not the focus. Finish is dry but not overly so, fairly clean, a gentle Belgian yeast presence and touches of fruit move on. Pretty nice Belgian IPA. Really goes through the motions. Not a hop screamer but integrates itís hops and what it has quite well. Nice beer.

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Can: The aroma consists of light orange, peach, Belgian yeast, and faint grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a one-finger orange tinged off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. Thereís some spotty webbing left behind for lacing. The flavor starts with orange, caramel, peach, and light Belgian yeast. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, lighter pine, and a touch of spice. Light-medium boided with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the Belgian characteristics are much more mild compared to other Belgian IPAs Iíve previously had. Itís a decent thirst quencher, but probably not something Iíd look to if Iím in the Belgian IPA mood.

Sample at Brewery Vivant on 3/29/13. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, earthy hops, pepper and banana. Malty flavor with some sweetness and peppery character before a grassy hop finish.

Strykzone (5898) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2011
16 oz. can bought on a trip to Michigan. This has a huge fluffy off white head that leaves powdery lacing. The beer is clear amber. I smell pine and citrus hops with some caramel malt and spice. This beer is hop forward especially with that citrus. Floral notes. Some yeast is tasted but it is subtle as is spice. Caramel flavor and some toast. At the finish spruce lingers on the tongue. Good.

Beerman6686 (5615) - 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

nuplastikk (5255) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
16oz can. Slightly hazy orange-tan body. Big, foamy off-white head. Kind of has a flowery, sort of phenolic thing going on. Not really that impressive, sort of a let down, I expected more. The yeast is too aggressive, and it has herbal, spicy characteristics that seem out of place for the style, maybe right for a spicy US Saison.
