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

Aromas of apple, lemon, wildflowers, and biscuits. Hazy yellow-orange, with a well-retaining, pillowy, white head. Dry with average bitterness. Medium body, good carbonation, and a floral hoppy finish. A very floral, refreshing tripel.

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.

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.

morri (184) - NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
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 (43) - 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.

Bottled. Hazy light yellow color with thicker than average, creamy white head. Spicy nose. Aroma is hops all over, spicy. Flavour is soft hops with spicey tones. finish is hops everywhere dominating. Great!
