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.

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.

bartlebier (2068) - 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.

troyc (2585) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2014
[Tap] Deep golden color with a small and somewhat fizzy head. Nose is not particularly hoppy, but more focused on Belgian yeasty notes. Taste is more hoppy and includes citrus rind and grassy notes. Spicy white pepper notes imparted by the yeast in the finish. Lively carbonation. Not bad, but flavors seemed to be more muted compared to other beers in this style.

Minderbinder (2064) - 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.

BrownALEx (290) - Portland, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2012
16 oz. can pour into my Paulaner stein. A slightly above average Belgian IPA. Had on tap at Duke’s Canoe Club in Portland, MI in July ’11, much better on tap. Maybe having it out of a can turned me off slightly, still getting used to canned crafts.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

Scipio (726) - 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.
