MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Intensely bitter, this American-style Tripel showcases herbal and citrusy hop resins atop doughy yeast in a creamy mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of white foam decorates the cloudy beige.
-The citrus fruit angles could have been a bit more prominent to offset the portentous resinous character.
-The fluffy carbonation and leveled residual sugars make for a comfortable mouthfeel.
-The base malt profile tends to get overwhelmed by the hops.
-Yeast esters are present, but submerged in hoppiness.
-Alcohol is not a bother at all in the flavor profile.

Bottle.

DuffMan (6643) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie & Parksy post-RBAG 2014. Bright brassy gold with an extremely lively white head that settled into a chunky white mattress, leaving gobs of lace. Beautiful juicy pear and citrus, very bright, lightly estery, moderately bitter finish. A really fantastic beer!

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a large white fluffy head. Aroma brings out loads of Belgian yeast, subtle fruity esters and some residual sugars. Flavour brings out shitloads of Belgian yeast, some cotton candy, and bubblegum. Exceedingly carbonated and yeasty - almost excessive. Good stuff.

TaktikMTL (5700) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Odeur de fruits tropicaux. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’orange et de pêche avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #4949)

Boutip (4669) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of herbal pungent hops with light funky yeast notes. Taste is a mix between some Belgian style malt with light residual sugar with some quiet pungent hops with nice herbal finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice mix between some Belgian IPA with weird funky hoppy mix thrown for good measure.

czar (4264) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
pours hazy light golden with a decent white head, some retention and lacing. spices, big citrusy american hops, light biscuity - nice pale malts, hint of acidity and wheat, very few phenols. average carbonation, medium body - oily, very nice citrusy-herbal finish. truly enjoyed this tripel-ipa.

reebtogi (4145) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
750ml capped bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a massive white head with good retention that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and yeast with some grains. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy and earthy bitterness finishing yeasty and dry. A well done tripel that I recommend for others to try.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2013
Smells a little musky. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Smells a little Oaky with some florals. Finished a little astringent. Some booze in finish. Thanks to Slovaksniper for this bottle.

rodenbach99 (3132) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Bouteille de 341ml. Bière dorée avec grumeaux et mousse crémeuse blonde. Le nez est fort en houblon frais, vert proche de la marijuana (mais j’en ai jamais fumée). La bouche est concentrée, chaleureuse, ronde, piquante et épicée. Très intéressant un vrai hybride de Triple et de IPA Américaine.
