COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first two batches of Duvel Tripel Hop were brewed with Saaz-Saaz, Styrian Golding and Amarillo. From now on Duvel Tripel Hop will have a different hop every year that will be added in the brewing process as well as being used for dry hopping. For 2012 this hop is Citra.

Editor’s note: clearly distinguishable, in a circle on the label it reads "Dry Hopped with Citra 2012 Selection"

JulienHuxley (3542) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2013
Small bottle. Clear pale yellow pour, frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, lots of lemon candy, light eucalyptus, duvel nose (light yeastiness), grass. Taste is fruity, beautiful hop flavor, a bit of corn sweetness, not as clean as the aroma but very nice. Palate is good, classic Duvel, really high carb with med body, easy drinking.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of anders37. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a white head. Spicy nose, some fresh citrusy hops. Medium body, carbonation is a little excessive, a dry fruitiness with a fresh touch of the Citra. The combination of a Belgian base beer and American hops actually work here - probably because the Duvel is not overly yeasty. 250113

Ungstrup (29956) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, lemons, hops, and hay, leading to a very bitter finish.

crossovert (8181) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
LAter to the party on this one. Pours like regular riple hop, light gold, big head. Dry hop in the smell is gone. It is slightly fruity with yeast over top of everything. Quite spicy. The flavor is pleasant. Lots of esters, very fruity, pleasant malt, slight yeast spice with a hint of fennel. Pleasant brew but it could be hoppier, im thinking the age of the bottle is one of the problems.

annunz123 (890) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Strong, IPA-like aroma, with citrus and pine. Flavor starts candy sweet, then finishes with powerful hop bitterness, citrus, and spice. Very good, but not any better than other high end IPAs.
