I am a fan of IPAs mostly, but once in a while a great tripel comes along, and this is one of those. Another great brew from Dieu du ciel.

From the 11.5 fl. oz. bottle. Strange dating system. I thin it says good until 2014 but I am not not quite sure. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head that fades. A good amount of lacing. The aroma is biscuit malts, some citrus, some spice and a little butter. The body is medium and astringent. The taste is a bit more bitter and biting than the aroma might suggest. Something is off about this. It’s a Tripel but doesn’t taste like one.

Dieu du Ciel always delivers. One of the best breweries in the world #19 2012. I am not a Tripel fan but I am a hop head and the Citra hops in this genius. I love this. Simply amazing. Super rich silky creamy thick. Tripels are in your face and Citra hops are very in your face. The two balance each other out. What you end up with is a Triple IPA. resin, floral, citrus, alcohol, banana, bubblegum, butterscotch, vanilla, orange, amber, hazy, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, salty, umami, full body, soft carbonation, bitter, long sweet finish, Fabulous!

Spab (2401) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirts. Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with good-sized, lacy white head. Aroma is candied fruit, citric hops and some light yeasty funk. Flavour has sweet tropical fruit, candy sugar, grapefruity hops and a little spiciness/funkiness. Fine carbonation. Interesting, enjoyable take on a tripel.

bytemesis (3169) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Sebastien! Pours clear amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly with decent lacing. Aroma is citra - grapefruit, pine, honey, grain. Flavor is the same, little sweetness, strong bitterness, bitter finish. Medium body, some warming. This has a lot going for it; I think I may have let it sit in the fridge too long becuase I saw "tripel" and missed "citra hopped." Oh well, my fault.

Bottle, thanks Colin. Golden yellow frothy white head . Citrusy fruity aroma! Neat . Yeasty, yet citrusy fruity taste . Strong alcohol present. Complex triple with citrus hops thrown in - interesting and fun!

nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2013
12oz bottle at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a hazy, bright gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose of grapefruit, orange, candy, grass, lemon. Flavor is sweet, orange, lemon, pine, grapey, vinous, some malt. Spicy, spritzy finish. A good twice on a classic style.

asheft (2512) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
Woody herbal hoppy aroma that is sweet and with tropical fruit notes. Hazy gold under a lacy and bubbly white cover. Sweet and bitter, with balance toward bitter. Minty, tropical and herbal. Light body, medium carbonation, clean finish.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Orange/copper pour with a thin lace. Great fruit gum, grapefruit hop aroma. Interesting flavour. Initial fruit hop flavour. Mutates to a herb and spice creation. Sweet sugar spice finish. Oily syrup texture. Fresh bitter finish.

drowland (6049) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2013
6/13/13. 12oz bottle from mathieuc! Orange pour with a small khaki head. Bold citra hop aroma, lots of tropical fruits, along with esters and candy sugar. The flavor is a touch sweet, lots of tropical fruits and cistrus melding with candy sugar and some lingering bitterness. Not bad!
