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.

16oz can shared. Poured s medium orange with off white head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast and malt and hops. Nothing offensive just kind of generic in nature. The flavor was of mild Belgian style and mild hops like it is almost afraid to jump out the can. Could have been a whole lot better. But just average instead.

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.

Pours dark orange with a beige head and aroma of citrus, grass, and yeast. Taste is bitter sweet, citrus comes trough with grass and floral notes and the Belgain yeast with a bitter, dry finish. Very drinkable, solid brew

A - Pours a clear copper-orange color with a big layer of frothy off-white head atop. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeasts and some sweet caramel malts with a bit of citrus hops taking the back seat. Overall, a bit weak. T - Starts off with some nice sweet caramel malts and Belgian yeast. The hop flavor is very mild at the start. Through the middle, the citrus hops get a bit stronger with a touch of bitterness coming through as well. The yeast also gets a bit deeper and more bready. The finish is a mix of some light bitterness, a bit of sweet caramel malts, and some bready yeast flavor that lingers. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels fairly smooth and crisp. The bready yeast flavor really lingers for quite a while. D - Very drinkable. The beer feels a little off balanced with the hop flavor really not standing up next to the strength of the yeast and malts. I like the depth of the yeast flavor, and just a bit more hops could make this a winner.

Sampled right after Tree Hugger, and prefer this. Slight Belgian sweetness infuses what is otherwise a solid IPA.

Nephilium (1470) - Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Citrus hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy amber with a full white head. The Belgian yeast esters are the predominant flavor, with some grassy hop notes coming forward in the finish. Lingering fruity notes, not a bad beer but I donít think I would class it as an IPA.

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

Pours a rich darker golden-orange with a thick khaki dome that laces nicely. Aroma of rich Belgian yeast, spice and cloves, with plenty of pine and citrus that compliments the yeast character very well. Taste is sweet to a point, but quite bitter afterward. Palate is lighter side of medium with zesty carbonation and an almost puckering bitter finish. Really nice beer. Showcases how great Belgian style yeast can meld with American hops.

16 oz. can pours a hazy orange with big white head and a little lacing. Nose is that of a Belgian, rather than an American IPA: lots of spices, yeast, and pears. Aroma is the same, heavier on the fruits, spices and floral hops than on the the sweet malts, which are also present. Mouthfeel is sticky, and body is medium, with active carbonation (perhaps too much). A decent, distinctively Belgian-style IPA from a midwest brewer I had not tried before. Good but not great.
