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

750ml bottle. the pour is reminiscent of a belgian tripel. big over-foamy head and a rich golden-amber hue. aromas of bitter green hops overwhelms me. also, peach, mango, some passion fruit bleeds through as well. it’s very aromatic, and even contains some light floral notes. the taste is smooth, fruity, but well balanced and not overly hopped. the finish is ultimately creamy vanilla and green, tight hops. the journey there is quite a deep one. i’ve thoroughly enjoyed this ale. it’s nothing short of phenomenal. grab one, it’s worth it.

Diabobale (338) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 21, 2015
Di colore giallo, velata, con un cappello di schiuma croccante, generosa, bianca e di lunga persistenza. Al naso i sentori fruttati (mela verde) e quelli agrumati (predominante è il pompelmo ma anche la scorza di arancia) accompagnano quelli erbacei, molto intensi. Al palato ha una buona carbonazione con un corpo nella media. In bocca di nuovo sentori fruttati, di lievito con un pizzico di speziato e tantissimo amaro, anche qui erbaceo. Il finale è secco e la persistenza è abbastanza prolungata.

Wonderful solid light amber colour, nice rocky white head. A high quality tippel and IPA rolled into one. The hoppiness of the IPA tends to override the more complex and sublte trippel features in my opinion, but whatever, this is a high quality brew!

paulvanpelt (423) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2015
Goudgeel, nevelig bier met witte schuimkraag. In de neus vooral hop. Aroma in de mond naast de hop meer fruitig: banaan, appel en ook mouten. Bitter, maar toch ook een licht zoetje. Body is vol, vrij zacht in de mond. Prima.

fredfa (145) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - NOV 2, 2015
Belga mais lupulada do que o normal, mesmo assim é menos amarga que uma Dipa e menos que muitas IPA. É bem equilibrada no doce e no amargo. Teor alcoólico bem inserido. Lembra a Tremmens versão mais lupulada.

I just recieved this @ a kroger supermarket midlothian virginia! came in a four pack. Did’nt know what to expect but WOW! what a beer. Definitely can compete with America’s best IPA’s. Was’nt expecting the malt to come through but great overall taste especially the fruits. Well done excellent beer! I think i’ll have another thank you!

Hazy golden colour, big creamy head that lasts for a good while, leaving a ring and lace. SMell of tropical fruits, citurs, pine, fruits, spices. Medium to full body, great carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits, bananas, clove, spices, citrus. Great.

Zeer lekker, wel traag te drinken. Van Chouffe drink ik liever de soleil. Wel een goede smaak.
