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

Wow. Thick white head dissipates into big whipped cream like lumps on top of the golden body. The yeast spice fills in perfectly the gap between when the light maltiness fades and the hops kick in. It’s like a top american double IPA blended with a standard tripel. Yeast spiciness complements the aggressive hoppiness very well. Hopefully the other belgian brewers start to experiment like this, if so, it will be a good time to be a beer drinker.

Fules (628) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 22, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab. Homályos, borostyán szín. Illata fűszeres, komlós, de nem túl intenzív. Szénsavas, komlósan kesernyés, határozott gyümölcsös mellékízzel. Utóíze keserű, hosszan tartó, pici gyümölcsösséggel.

Inoven (227) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Flesje thuis gedronken. Goudgeel, enigszins troebel bier met stevige schuimkraag. Aroma is fruitig en hoppig. Smaak is hoppig / bitter. Nasmaak is een beetje wrang.

Bijl (143) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Goudgeel, licht wazig, volle witte groffe schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Aroma: Licht grapefruit, lemon en citrus, tropisch fruit .. subtiel, kruidig, gist, herkenbaar moutig. De hop is in de aroma iets verborgen..... Smaak: Fruitig / Tropisch, iets pijnboom, ook een licht zuurtje.... soort om en om... er gebeurt veel. Tikje kruidig, koriander, pittige / spicy hops, iets alcohol warmte ... de 9% merk je echte niet. Een flinke nabitter......spicy.... die lang aanhoud.... echt Prima! CO2 is medium, drinkt gevaarlijk makkelijk weg, medium body en mondgevoel is wat prikkelig door de hops. Afdronk is droog en bitter/zoet. Een mooie kruising tussen een Belgische trippel en een IPA... prima in balans.

ALIBALI (416) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2016
Atemberaubend. Extrem blumig grasiger hopfeninfizierter Belgian Stuff. Hefig und mit der perfekten Balance zwischen Honigsüße & Hopfenbittere gesegnet. Schwerer, sehr alkoholischer Trunk der Spitzenklasse. Sollte man immer nen Fläschchen vom im Keller haben. 0,3/4,50 vom Hahn im GALOPPER DES JAHRES HH.

Golden straw in color. Belgian trippel nose. Very balanced. Hoppiness is really masked until the end of a sip.

Keg @ Berthom Lyon. Deep gold pour with a white head. Interesting nose. Hoppy with distinct estery fruits. Cut grass, banana and pear. Plums. Toasted grain and light pepper. Similar flavor. Nicely balanced sweet / spicy / bitter profile. Nice malty ballast. Very nimble considering the big profile. Quite good.

33cl bottle from Wine Rack, Henley. A pale amber pour with a billowing cream head and lots of carbonation; the aroma is a curious blend of zesty citrus and Belgian yeast; the taste is tropical fruits to start with a spritzy mouthfeel; then a deep grapefruit bitterness with warming alcohol. A nicely balanced blend of old and new styles.
