COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique marriage between the English tradition of IPAs, the new American revolution of Imperial IPAs and the classic Belgian way of brewing. Houblon Chouffe, although very much hopped as it is, showcases the unique balance between a very strong IPA and a very special Belgian Tripel exclusively created for this ale (Big malty body, distinct dryness, expressive estery fruitiness). - IBU: 59, Original Gravity: 1092

pours golden. hints of fruit. not as hoppy as I expected. I wuldn’t classify this as an IPA, but I just stated drinking belgians so I will have to try some that are comparable and re-rate.

Pours light gold with a very large, lasting head. I did not like this beer, although I can understand people who do. Not enough hops to have "IPA" in the title. Not for me.

SpringsLicker (3386) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Cloudy yellow with a lasting off-white head. Fruity citrus aroma. The flavor is fruity, tangy, spicy Belgian and hoppy, bitter IPA mixed together.

small bottle @ In Good Company in Rockland Maine. I’ve had this before but never rated it. Pours copper with an off white head. Nose is light with some hops, but I have a cold. Taste is nice and sweet with a great balance of belgian and dipa.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is yeast and wheat with a little malt and hops. The taste is very yeasty, with a sweet wheat-hoppy finish. This is a weird beer, but one to try.

[1463-20080531] Bottle. Mild yeast grains aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Mild sour yeast flavour is not sour but trying to be. Medium body. Repeatable, pleasant.

yespr (39627) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a slowly collapsing yet quite stable head. Off-white. Aroma is fantastic, smooth and mellow yeasty, mild spiced and caramel malt in a classic and almost supurb mix. In addition the aroma hops of amarillo, tomahawk and saaz join in giving a great twist to this. Flavour is dense spiced mixed with a nice mellow mix of yeast and caramel malt. Again the oily hops work quite well with this mix providing even more strength to the classic triple flavour. This is so smooth and so flavourful a triple - fantastic. Only downside - a vague bit too strong flavoured perhaps.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2008
(bottle): Foam & head everywhere! Extremely foamy, even opening after warming for a bit. Very cloudy, golden body. Big foamy white head, somewhat lasting. Belgian flowery aroma. Some graininess, slight amount of alcohol, somg spices. Watery taste, light flowery taste, some spice. Weakish for 9%. Very light flavor, watery.

Bottle from sam the beer man. Golden yellow pour with a small fluffy white head that lasted. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, well balanced hop aroma. Tasted is very dry and hoppy. Lots of hops with some fruity notes mixed in. Very good.
