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"

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Clear golden pour with a huge white head. Amazingly intense citrus aroma of grapefruit and tangerine. A bit of tropical fruit, some pine, and a nice floral note. The sweetness of the malt only comes through a little bit. A moderate bitterness on the palate to go along with all citrus. Great grapefruit, some tangerine peel, and a nice subtle pine note. Slightly more sweet than the nose, but the hops still dominate.

Beerheart65 (1322) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Blind-tasted as part of saveur bieres tasting pack. Mildly hazy golden, sparkling lightly, white rocky head dussipates medium fast by breaking into big bubbles, ok lacing. Aroma is citrus fruity, sweet and fresh, bit green pepper, lime, mild lemon, bit spices. Flavor is medium sour, sweet, crisp feel, light body, very refreshing, bit lychee, mild herbs, dries to gapefruit finish, has also flowery notes. Very good, refreshibg, easy to drink, light, nuanced, balanced. My favorite of the six.

Zlotta (1324) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Mitra’ (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) as part of the tasting box, best before August 2017. Clear, pale straw yellow with a greenish touch and a massive, frothy, stable, white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal aroma of lychee, lime, some grapefruit and fresh grass. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal taste of lime, lychee, grapefruit, pineapple and fresh grass, followed by a medium long, slightly yeasty, a little herbal and quite dry finish with a touch of alcohol. Medium body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very refreshing despite its high abv, drinks way too easily as well. Very good!

RW80 (1826) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2016
33cl bottle (Black Nr. 2) Appearance: Golden, with a big huge white health, leaving a nice amount of lacing. Aroma: The Citra in aroma, stone fruit , yeast, lemon grass. Taste: Citrus fruity, belgian yeast spices, light malts. . Bitter finish medium body, averafge carbonation. Now the tough decision this our Sorachi Ace. This ones more hoppy , the other one is more Duvel on Sterroid. I still don’t know. which one I prefere and both are great.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2016 Nummer 2 uit de Duvel Tripel Hop Tasting Box. Goudgeel, helder met volle witte schuimkraag. Grote bellen in het schuim. De kraag zakt langzaam weg naar een mooi laagje. Mooie pareling in het glas zoals altijd bij Duvel. Directe Aroma van Citrus en Grapefruit van de (3e) Citra Hop. Door de hops heen ruik je de typische Duvel gist...ietsje scherp en zurig. Ook de lichte mouten komen bij opwariming wat naar voren. Smaak is fris en licht zuur. Pijnboom, ietsje mint en wat kruidig. De kruidigheid merk je vooral in begin in je keel tezamen met een ietwat alchol warmte. Een beste eindbitter van de 3 hops die nog wel even na blijft hangen. De body is medium, veel CO2. Inderdaad een extra gehopte Duvel. Prima spul!

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2016
Revisited at ZBF 2016 (new brew, part of the black mystery pack). The Citra in aroma promises a stone fruit sweetness that in flavour, travelling on those highly attentuated Duvel yeasts and pale malts, merges into a lemongrass and lime (kafir) leaf spice. Dry as always, with an exotic edge making Asian food pairing options very evident. Works oddly well, even if Duvel itself has always seemed like to "thin" and "finished" beer in itself for extravagant dryhopping to add any profound pyrotechnics.

Sircatis (42) - FRANCE - MAY 2, 2016
Découverte dans le coffret Tripel Hop. Très claire avec une belle et épaisse mousse blanche. Au nez on retrouve bien le houblon. Au goût elle est doucement fruitée avec un petit retour d’alcool.
