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

floydian1 (1113) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 22, 2013
330ml bottle (expiry 3/15). A clear bright yellow beer with a frothy white head that settles to a firm collar with decent lacing. The nose reminds me of a Duvel with grainy golden malts, soft spices and fruity notes (oranges, pineapple) plus some leafy elements. The palate is smooth and oily with a medium fullish body and a restrained malty sweetness before a decent peppery dry hop bitterness. More like a Belgian Golden Ale rather than an IPA or Abbey Tripel in my opinion. Dangerously drinkable given the ABV.

Bardzo sympatyczne, złote w barwie z piękną puszystą pianą która ładnie zdobi szkło. Lekko przymglone. Aromaty cytrusowe, traw, może lekka śliwka. w smaku słodowo, dobra goryczka, średnio-wysokie nasycone.

Coloração dourada, espuma branca de média duração, uma cerveja leve e equilibrada, pouco amarga, aroma cítrico. Excelente cerveja!

Amazing Belgian IPA. Com sabores pouco frutados e amargor balanceado, essa belga surpreende como uma bela e equilibrada IPA.

Been about time, hell well past it, that I FINALLY cracked this beer. And I want to kick myself for not. An excellent mix of triple with it’s delicious malt and yeast flavours, lemon and lime citruses, and well and a balanced hoppiness to rep the IPA. Nice.

Quelle amertume en entrée de bouche, puis de la douceur, pas de gout d’alcool. On sent tout le travail du houblon bien présent. Je ne lui donnerais pas le nom de IPA, mais c’est une bière instructive.

Bottle from Congress, Longton. Pours hazy amber with white froth. Easy drinking IPA, very hoppy, nice carbonation. Good stuff.

Reddish brown colour with light brown head. Aroma of hops, some herbs, spices, caramel, fruits, especially bananas, plums etc. The same is flavour, with low carbonation, little maltiness and medium carbonation. Not typical Abbey Tripel, but still very good.

Lawger (199) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark gold with big white head. The tripel-scents dominates the nose with yeasty and malty notes, candy bananas, brioche and some herbs. There's a slight boosy prickle and hints of what I percieve as euro hops. Medium+ bodied palate with good malty base, roasted bread, a slight sweetness and low to moderate bitterness. Definetely a good beer, but they could really have done a lot more to make it stand out against a normal tripel. There's not much here to remind me of a DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. I really like this ale. The aroma is a very blended hopsthat has a freshness to it. The appearance is very cloudy yellow. The taste is a mix of standard belgian tripel but with a citrus mix like in american IPAs. The palate is a bit spicy, but overall very refreshing and smooth for 9%. The alochol was hidden very well for a beer that seemed so light. Thanks to my son Dan for giving me this bottle for Christmas.

bottiglia da 33 cl. Color oro con abbondante schiuma bianca, fine e di grande tenuta. Al naso esplosione di luppolo, resina, citrico, agrume, erbaceo frutta matura. Al palato inizio decisamente secco e fa sentire un pò troppo l’alcool con un finale citrico e fruttato.
