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.

Nice beer but not as hoppy as I expected. . Had at Brewery Vivant's tap room in Grand Rapids with Raith.

Grand Rapids can. The can mentions a tulip glass but it also tastes good in a plastic Hampton Inn glass. Good base IPA but honestly missing the Belgian side of it. Tasty but not necessarily unique.

16 oz can. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.
Tea-like bitterness, mild tart fruitiness and mild bitterness in the aroma. Mild bitterness, mild yeast and some malt in the flavour. What Belgian IPA? Yeast IPA... that’s what it is. But not bad.

16oz can from the Deli Lama in Lake Villa. Pours an orangey copper with a white head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has spices and pine and plastic. Maybe citrus. Taste is of tangy spicy yeast, pine and resin. Some malt chasing way underneath. Light to medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes long and tangy sweet with a bitter undercurrent. Interesting. Too many guns in the wrong direction -- in the belgian-y line opposed to the ipa-ish line.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 02-01-2012. This canned IPA pours a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a long retention, gold hazy body and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, yeasty, citrus, pine hops, and semi-sweet. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, herbal, citrus, and pine hops. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable with an enjoyable all around good flavor. It is not an overly hoppy tasting IPA and it is worth trying.

Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste is yeasty sweet with light bitter finish. Body is light and smooth with average carbonation.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Translucent medium orange body, thin off-white head. Grassy hops nose with lots of clove and banana; bready and candy-like. Body of a typical Belgian IPA, grassy and estery with clove, banana, and light fruit and a relatively thin, grassy finish.

Amber with an airy taupe head that lets you know where its been. Aroma is floral and yeasty with some herbs, citrus and mild fruit. Taste is probably right down the middle of Belgian ale and IPA. Yeast, fruit, floral hops, esters and mild bitterness. It’s okay, but I’m not a huge fan of this style, though I’d like to see someone make a hoppy dubbel instead of a hoppy bland ass Belgian pale ale.

Gription79 (2264) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 5, 2011
16 oz can
A: spicy yeast and alcohol, toasty malts, American hops that are not well defined-muddled
T: spicy, malty more bready then toasty, again with muddled American hops
Overall the beer is worth a taste, nothing really wrong with it. A nice balance between the malts, yeast, and the bitterness.

Pint-size can. Poured fiery medium-orange with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange rind and fruity yeast, joined by white pepper and cloves.. sweeter, honeyed undertones.. sweet overall, and fairly enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel, crusty bread, and honey at the core, with spiced-up darker fruity yeast laced throughout.. the yeast worked a little too hard in here, but it was still alright.. dry, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. again the yeast presence was a little strong.. decent brew.
