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

cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2012
light coper color with lots of sediment, aroma is grassy and floral, with a small amount of caramel, taste starts off like a basic light tripel with fruity, yeasty esters, some malty sweetness, the finish is grassy hops and dry, very interesting beer, and well balanced, make sure you shake the crap out of it before you pour, I didn’t shake it enough at first and the flavor was quite undesirable

HopTsing (412) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2014
From the tap poured a hazy golden brew with an ample white head. Thi IPA has more delicate hop an d malt flavors. Just what I would expect from a Belgium.

tia (860) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Tap @ Capital Ale Downtown. Hazy yellow with nice thick white head and generous lacing. Aroma is faintly of coriander and a little white pepper and a hint of banana- maybe a little rubber. Nice and crisp and dry. Tastes like a good kicked up pilsener with some extra hand time on the light hoppy finish.

33cl flesje bij café Het Voske, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 9% Uitgeschonken in origineel La Chouffe glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met dikke, luchtige, witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: bloemig, fruitig, sterke bittere afdronk Conclusie: Iets te bitter voor mijn smaak, maar geen verkeerd bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (558) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 27, 2014
Light sun yellow and lightly opalescent in colour with a large froth white fading head with good lacings. On the nose aromas of barnyard, dust/earth, grass and light floral/fruity hops develop. A soft prickle and the beer develops a light slick textured full body. The finish is malty and offers some fruity earthy flavours and lasts pleasantly for a good while.

Kita (996) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with friends. Hazy deep color with medium creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of yeast, bread, floral and resin hops and spices. Taste starts with rich and moderate sweet toasted maltiness, following is fruity and yeasty sour with dry and spicy mouthfeel, while finish is long and bitter. Full body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Excellent hybrid brew with very useful hoppy add-on...

MonsterMagnet (156) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Lemon, grass, pepper. Medium bodied, not too complex. It’s defintely a tripel, with added hoppiness.

BPBrewCrew (11) - Batavia, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2014
A unique celebration of floral and hops that grabs attention on the shelf with a gnome in a skirt flaunting an impressive beard. This beer won the favor of our critics by flaunting a distinct flavor, smooth after taste and...let's be honest... High alcohol content. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
