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, slightly cloudy, with a two-finger open head. Aroma is honey, basil, brioche, cinnamon. On tasting, the hop character is herbal and spicy. Dry finish. Just a hint of alcohol.

Fyllig och lite beska. Lite citrus, estrig och sockrig. Nja, även om det är välbalanserat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (9830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2015
On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer is a hazy yellow color with a thick foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops, bananas and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, Belgian yeast, bananas and malt. The finish is fruity with a yeast and hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel, es una cerveza de color ámbar, de suave turbidez, con una cabeza blancuzca y esponjosa, de mediana formación y buena retención. El aroma es dominado por notas frutales, en parte por la levadura y por los lúpulos, también hay notas cítricas y herbales. El cuerpo es bien atenuado, ligero pese a tener 9% de graduación alcohólica. El sabor tiene un balance hacia el amargor que se refuerza tanto por el picor del alcohol como así también por la sequedad de una buena atenuación.

It is a nice I.P.A, we could say with a Belgian touch and the hop is maybe the saaz and like the duvel tripel hops, it is tasting the grapefruit and there is a side sparkling. I think that this beer is perfect with a Peruvian sudado of fish or a zarzuela of fish from Spain.

Bottle. Golden, white foam. triple fruit notes with hop aromatics on top. Medium full mellow body. Pears, orangepeel, cloves, grassy and herbal hops. A bit fat, but still drinkable.
