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

Aroma of bread, banana, citrus. Cloudy yellow with big pillowy head. Taste is sweet like a tripel, spiced like a wit, finished with refreshing dose of hops. Should be a mess but flavors are assertive and clean. A beautiful marriage of Belgian yeast and an IPA. One of my favorites. Follow the gnome.

Tap @ Winking Lizard: Semi-cloudy appearance with sweet flavors of fresh baked bread and a slight hop finish. Easy to drink.

12oz bottle pours a hazy golden color with a lot of frothy head. Nice balance of Belgian yeast fruitiness and hop bitterness.

Wow! Il y a toujours 2 ou 3 Chouffe à la SAQ et je ne me souviens jamais laquelle est ma préférée. Bah, c’est clairement celle-ci. C’est une sacrée bonne IPA Impériale Belge, à la rencontre d’une Tripel pas piquée des vers. L’amertume se perd au creux des fins sillons que creuse la levure belge. Ce truc aurait pu être démesuré et mal foutu, mais l’équilibre est presque indécent tellement c’est sexy. Et on se retrouve à siffler 750ml d’une bière à 9% sans trop broncher. Un classique et un modèle en son genre.

What an excelent combinstion! Whish some more breweries would try this, not only white IPA. Light straw color with a medium lssting big head and nices lacing. Aroma ofcsourish yeast, spice, citrus, honey and bread. Taste of goosberries, apple, coreander, malt and yeast. Aftertaste of fresh bread.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a massive frothy head. The aroma of banana hits you straight away then there is an underlying citrus. Lively carbonation with the taste being bitter as expected with an IPA.

Wow! Pours cloudy orange with a MASSIVE foamy head, it’s great. Aroma is a little citrus but loads of banana and clove as is distinct for Belgian yeast. Taste is of a Belgian wheat beer with all the bitterness of an IPA... it’s an interesting combination, I’m liking it.

Cor palha brilhante, creme muito generoso e altíssima duração. Ótima carbonatação é garantia de mantimento do creme por muito tempo. Amargor balanceado e até baixo para uma IPA. Harmoniosa e com retrogosto na medida. Tem um que cítrico o álcool apesar dos 9% harmoniza perfeitamente. Aromas de damasco, mel e fermento. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
