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.

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. Itís okay, but Iím not a huge fan of this style, though Iíd like to see someone make a hoppy dubbel instead of a hoppy bland ass Belgian pale ale.

Gription79 (2284) - 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.

Can. Pours clear, light copper with fizzy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is floral hops, straw, honey, and light sweet malt. Flavor is malt forward (caramel), straw, with floral and citrus hops; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

16oz can, shared by ryan: Pours a clear pale bronze with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some mild grassy and citrusy hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with some pale malty sweetness and a touch of clove spice before a drier earthy bitter finish.

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.

Pint from a can into a shaker glass. Mainly pine in the aroma, some bitter fruit and grain too. Red tint, no head, no lacing. Taste was piney, dry, bitter, lack of sweetness, a little spicy and citrus hops. Palate was medium bodied, minor fizz, stilled, and the citrus, bitter hops left a resinous feel on my mouth. The beer would have been better if there was more sizzle to the carbonation level, and it didnít feel so stilled and flat. Itís the first time Iíve seen Vivant distributed in the Chicago and I hope I come across their seasonal and high-end stuff soon.

Dark golden color. Strong wort presence with a touch of yeast, but balanced towards malts for an IPA.

Nephilium (1372) - 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.
