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.

Gift of John, gracias amigo. Poured at a great temperature and a mammoth, off white head that lasts for a while. Color was a slightly hazy amber. Aroma was hop, malt, grass. Flavor is malt, hop, slightly dry, grain. Body is full and decent. Finish is of good length and little sign of alcohol.

Bulk_Carrier (2271) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. This was poured into a tulip as I thought this was a Belgian IPA. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden bronzed amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There wasn’t much lacing. The smell had some tart to sour notes of grassy/lemon and moves towards some light Belgian spices. The taste combines it all to fit a sour to bitter mouthiness to fulfill a light tart fruitiness all around. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for a Belgian IPA as there was a pretty decent harshness but not overbearing. Overall, this was not a bad IPA or Belgian IPA, either way I could see myself having this again.

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.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Poured out of a 16 oz can into a Belgian snifter. A - Pours with a hazy amber body topped by a well-propotioned and durable off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma: Nutty yeast aromas mix with hops, some bready malts and faint fruits. Excellent balance. T: Nutty, yeasty, lightly funky, moderately hoppy, slightly fruity and floral. Nice complexity and good balance. The lingering, mildly bitter aftertaste is especially pleasant for this style. M - Medium-bodied with crisp, medium+ carbonation. Overall: a well crafted Belgian IPA worth seeking out.

wedgie9 (2100) - 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.

Minderbinder (2023) - 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.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Vivant Flight draught. 28viii13. Potable yet underprofiled herbal IPA with some tentative Belgian yeast characteristics, but none of its complexity. Saved by traditional US hop aromas. Might benefit from more fermenting time in the tubes.

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with nice, foamy, off-white head, decent legs / Sweet, steely, floral nose of spun sugar, violet, banana, resin, citrus / Medium body, soft carbonation, mildly sweet & syrupy, surprisingly dry and hoppy, lightly astringent, and big bitter finish / Stylish, dry flavors of straw, honey, spun sugar, violet, with only notes of banana and citrus / One of those rare cases where the nose doesn’t match the body or flavor, but this dry, pilsner-like Belgian is well suited for the summer.
