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

Bottle at beertasting with Carsten Bertelsen 19 / 6 2013. Clear light yellow, medium white head. Aroma, cascade hops, weak malt notes, yeast. Taste, interesting, you get the trippel taste, but it starts of very hoppy, yeast/malt in the middle, ends bitter. For me it’s not an ipa, but it’s still good.

Bottle 750ml. Poured into Brasserie D’achouffe glass. Nice orange color with huge white head. Aroma of sweetish apricots, herbs. Balanced bitter-sweet flavor, apricots, herbs, grass, a bit yeasty, alcoholic. Medium body. Low carbonation. Long lasting grassy aftertaste. Very nice.

Samea, potkua koko lailla, mutta silti aika tasapainoinen meno. Legendapullo ja musavisa pojun ja Peten kanssa.

From .750l bottle Pours a somewhat murky light amber with white head. That’s the best thing about this beer. I am not a big tripel fan to begin with, but this seems more like a Frankenstein’s monster than clever marriage.

LordAltbier (111) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2014
Eine reine Hopfenexplosion im Mund wie bei IPA üblich, jedoch kommt noch eine süßliche Malznote zum Vorschein, die mit dem Hopfen harmoniert. Jedoch ist das Bier nicht so mein Fall, aber für Freunde des herben Geschmacks ist es sicher was. Das Etikett mit dem Gartenzwerg bei der Hopfenernte drauf ist ganz nett!

Pringao_Toribi (220) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2014
In short: hoppy belgian beer. An incredible balance between hops and malts, taste sweet and sour at the same time, very aromatic and kind of drinkable for its strongness.

Bottle 33 cl. Golden, cloudy with a large but short-lived white head. Aroma of malt, hops, Orange and some spices. Medium bitter taste with a dry Hoppy end. The alc. Is well hidden, nice

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Big fluffy white head. Pale golden body with a lot of carbonation. Aroma is malt dominated, very pleasing. Some citrusy hops too. Toffee, alcohol, sweet fruits. Less bitter on the tongue than expected. Quite round taste. Not bad!

Procent (45) - POLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Aromat zdecydowanie "słodki". Połączenie słodowego i alkoholowego aromatu DIPA z brzoskwinią znaną z tripla. Amerykańskich chmieli trochę czuć, ale relatywnie niewiele. Kolor żółty ku bursztynowemu lekko, piana drobnopęcherzykowa z ładnym lacingiem. W smaku to połączenie głównie brzoskwini z goryczką i nutami cytrusowymi od chmieli. Daje poczucie pełni w ustach. Dobre, ale przydałoby się więcej aromatów od amerykańskich chmieli.
