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"

Papsoe (25085) - 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 (29335) - 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 (7410) - 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 (861) - 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.

Foco_Kr (16) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2013
Buona birra con caratteristiche simili a una IPA. Inizialmente ha un sapore agrumato decisamente forte che però alla lunga risulta piuttosto piacevole. Mi aspettavo un aroma leggermente più particolare, ma tutto sommato è più che accettabile.

bytemesis (3169) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Another nice beer today! Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with a huge white head that very slowly dissipates but eventually leaves nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, grapefruit. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Very nice beer.

zaf (243) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2013
aroma: floral, citrus, herbs, apparenza: golden, hazy, minimal head, gusto: light sweetness, very bitter, lightly sour, palato: medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, sicuramente buona ma mi sembrava di bere una limonata..troppo luppolata,anzi è la selezione di luppoli e la loro combinazione che non mi ha soddisfatto..molto caratteristica ma non eccezzionale bevuta all’elfo

tomer (1707) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle sample, a little hazy gold colour, medium bubbley head, aroma of pomello, some mango and passion fruit with some pine in the back, flavour of pine with some herbal tea and a hint of tropical fruits in the back, very strong sourness and a light bitterness, the base beer feels the same as the Duvel Single. Great aroma but the flavour a real letdown.
