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 pale yellow with a nice frothy head. Smells hoppy with some spice. Taste is sweet, spicy, and hoppy. No real bitter finish. A real nice beer. I had this from a bottle.

sonotono (34) - torino, ITALY - FEB 25, 2015
Colore giallo torbido, schiuma molto abbondante. Odore erbaceo, citrico, agrumato, fruttato, molto forte. Sapore subito amaro, temperato dalla dolcezza del malto, poi ritorno di amaro e finale lungo e amaro, di pompelmo, un po’ aspro. Ottimo esempio di ibrida Tripel/IPA, ricorda la Troubadour Magma, altrettanto buona. L’alcool è ben nascosto, risulta facilmente bevibile nonostante i 9 gradi.

Jannick13 (91) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy pale blonde with large forthy head. Aroma of belgian yeast and it’s typical light sweetness along with subtle notes of hopiness. Taste is more on the hoppy side with a citrus aspect coming through. Still tasting the belgian tripel yeast thought, which makes this experiemtn really well balanced.

Zeer mooie creatie van chouffe. Combinatie van traditionele Chouffe met extra bittere smaak dankzij de toevoeging van speciale hopsoorten. Desondanks iets te bitter naar mijn smaak.

mambossa (45) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Sunny gold pour with good head retention, little to no lacing. Heavy carbonation with my bottle. Sharply sweet floral aroma, very bright. Yeasty, fresh floral hop with bright malt. Alcohol well-hidden. Pretty good!!

Peter_L (951) - SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2015
Tap@Delirium Cafe Taphouse bar. Halmgul grumlig vätska med tunnt skum. Dofter av citrus, gräs, hö och passionsfrukt. Hög beska i smaken men inte åt det fruktiga amerikanska hållet utan mer åt torkat hö. Citrus och passionsfrukt identifieras, också.

Beerathon (1390) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2015
My bottled was aged, so the hop profile was greatly sacrificed to father time, but a base flavor was still there and quality at that. Belgian yeasty goodness with sweet malts and boozy.

Cask, 6 Degrees North, Aberdeen. Pours pale amber, translucent. Light carbonation. Smell is beautiful, flower notes, full bodied. Taste is gentle but full. Served too cold.
