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"

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 1, 2013
THOUGHTS: Still hard to believe a beer this light in color is so full of flavor and has such a high ABV which is barely noticeable in the flavor. Incredible beer. I really hops this one come back. Way better than the classic original. Further proof of the capabilities of the citra hops. Hid alcohol unbelievably well. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, golden yellow with a huge, white head that mostly but slowly diminished. The aroma had moderate grain, cracker and pale malt; heavy tropical fruit hops; moderate resinous hops; and light citrus, lemon and pineapple hops; and moderate funky yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, and moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and acidic, and heavily bitter with an average to long duration. There was cracker, pale malt, tropical fruit hops, slightly resinous hops, light funky yeast, light citrus hops, lemon and pineapple. The light to medium body was very dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic and astringent finish.

Bottle 0.33l at home Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thanks to Zlotta for finding this in Mitra. 24.09.2016. Taste as Number Two with Vlada Ciaoooo and Jelena. Pour it hazy yellow color with medium white head. Aroma sweetish, citra hops totally present, little bit eggy note I think from Citra. Taste smooth sweet quickly dissappear little bit odd at the end, missing carbonation after few sips, I thought is gonna be better than previous one but now hmm...., medium body, average carbonation, abrupt.

Duvel Moortgat by Duvel Tripel Hop #2 - 2012 Rami Rami is drinking a Duvel Tripel Hop #2 - 2012 by Duvel Moortgat at Powiśle Porownanie citry i amarillo. Sa inne. Citra istrzejsza, bardziej cytrusowa, amarillo daje "slodszy" aromat. Bez sikow kocich. Oba bdb.

martjoobolut (3026) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle as "Duvel Tripel Hop 2" (from Saveur Biere). Pours yellow with huge whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, spicy, citrus, floral. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruity, citrus, orange, grapefruit, spices. Finish is citric bitter with touch of alcohol. Cover alcohol better than some others from the series. Overall: great, at the moment my favorite from the tripel hop series (haven’t tried Sorachi Ace yet) and this is actually.better than original version.

Lore (2175) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2016
typical Duvel appearance of hazy, very pale yellow colour and huge, though not too dense and stable head; aroma of bread, floral-honey notes, grapefruit, orange zest oils, maybe pineapple, hints of sauerkraut and piney notes; taste is basically the same; brilliant beer from Duvel again!

0.33l bottle. Clear pale golden body, thick white head. Aroma of sweet bread, honeydew melon, grapefruit, blackberry and floral hops. Taste of bread, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, honey and floral hops. Very nice beer. Given that Citra was used in lots of beer in the recent years, I thought it won’t amaze me that much, but I was wrong. It really fits this beer.

McWorta (1519) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2016
Bright golden with a large white frothy head. Aromas of lemon, grapefruit and orange up front with hints of lime, mango, passion fruit developing further down a noticeable papaya aroma. Effervescent, slick and full bodied. Medium sweet with a light acidity and pronounced bitterness. Lasting zesty bitter finish, could showcase more of the hops.
