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

Bottle. Poured a golden amber color, slight off-white head. Aroma was hoppy, but less so than an English-style IPA. Definite fruit notes to aroma as well, coconut and pineapple mainly. Flavor had a floral hoppiness to it, but with those same coconut and pineapple notes. Finished with a spicy currant flavor, like one could expect from an Abbey ale. A very unique ale here, and I’d definitely try it again.

Cerveja de cor ouro e bem límpida, com média formação de espuma e boa estabilidade. O aroma tem um leve toque floral, mel e malte. O sabor é inicialmente adocicado e após isso sentimos uma leve acidez e um alto amargor, que está bem inserido na cerveja. Bem refrescante e adstringente. No retrogosto nota-se apenas o amargor.

Hamirubi (295) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A bright, golden yellow coloured beer with some hazy gloom and on top a vast white firm foam collar. The nose is sharp and hoppy, with lingering citrus fruit notes. The taste is full of bitter and malt flavours, although the bitterness certainly wins the plea. It is a massive, strong golden ale with a rather aggressive hopped mouth only sharpened by a vivid carbonation. Not very sublte nor elegant, yet the yeast, herbs and malt notes make their way to the palate. The finish combines that of an American style IPA and a European triple. Nice, but powerfull and unsubtle.

Pours hazy golden with a thick white head that dissipated rather slowly. Very cabinetry with an aggressive flavor. Tart, dry and slightly sweet malty flavor. There are hints of citrus and hops that add to the flavor. There is a sourness that hits the back of the tongue.

Bottle. Beautiful yellow-gold colour, and good aroma of floral honey. A litte aggressive palate disappoints me as compared with the first impressions. I think it would better to be some more low ABV for perfect harmony. However, It is true that the beer is quite well-made hoppy tripel. There is also good flavor of yeast - symbol of belgian ales.

Koskela (388) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
A sweetish yeasty and slight citrusy bitter aroma come from this slightly hazy pale yellow brew with tiny white bubbles rising to form around the edges of the glass. A mild bitter crisp upfront melting into that typical yeasty malty sweetness through out the taste ending in a nice powerful bitter aftertaste that leaves my tongue tingling a bit. This medium bodied brew combines 2 styles, your ipa and a Belgian or abbey style. Good hybrid.
