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

Poured a pale, slightly cloudy blonde, with a lasting white head. Aroma of floral hops. Medium body, flavour of citrus and floral hops, bitter sweet and quite refreshing.

Dank. Super dank. Tons of citrus and epic dankness. Taste is really nice. You get the sweet Belgian taste you’d expect with a hoppy bitterness you’d expect from an IPA. Really well balanced beer.

The beer pours a hazed straw colour with a long lasting thin rocky head and ample effervescence. The aroma is yeast, citrus, spices. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is citrusy hops, grains, and a little yeast. The herbally bitter aftertaste is quite good.

ZodiacM (117) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Lichtgeel bier met witte schuimkraag. Ruikt als een tripel, met een flinke nadruk op citrus, heeft ook bijna iets witbierderigs. De smaak daarentegen is meer richting de IPA: hoppig, bitter, citrus, zoetig zelfs. En de nasmaak is lekker bitter. Prima dubbele IPA derhalve.

gregorymconway (127) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Hazy gold effervescent body with a foamy white thick head. Citrus notes, some pine, orange zest. Great aroma and extremely sessionable even with the higher carbonation. Some very subtle soapy presense comes in the retronasal. Some witbier qualities are here aswell as coriander notes and the body. Really a stylistic hybrid done flawlessly.

A very refreshing double ipa. Very strong citrus flavour and also very sweet. Almost too sweet for my taste but still very good.

Teran (7) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 6, 2014 does not count
At shop in Belgrade. Belgian tulip glass. Cloudy orange with some large peaces of sediment, brilliant texture, nice white foam. Great carbonation. Between Belgian style Ale and American Double IPA. Deliciously spicy, aroma of citrus and some champagne. Excellent and well balanced. Pure luxury.

GuideDogSaint (402) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 31, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma lemony and a bit soapy with some banana. Very bitter finish. Certainly more a Belgian style beer than an IPA. Great stuff.

MikaLukanainen (13) - POLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow colour. Head grows fast, is very abundant and long lasting. Great lacing. Aroma is a bit confusing. The name of the beer sugests some american hops used but I couldn’t find them with my nose. Instead, a classical belgian tripel aroma of banana, some cloves, peach and yeast arised - much to my satisfaction in fact. Taste followed the aroma, the beer spreads gently on the palate giving the feel of sweeteness. Strong but gentle albedo bitterness in the finish, a telltale sign of american hops. No hint of alcohol whatsoever. Wonderful beer, I couldn’t resist to take more and more sips. Bottle 750.

Scouser (254) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a cloudy pee color with no head and only a little white lacing. An ugly beer. Aroma of banana, hay, Belgium yeast. Taste is not bad more Belgium than IPA. Tastes of banana, alcohol and citrus hops. Not a bad beer.
