4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dit is een hele mooie tripel met een enorme hop sensatie! Hij lijkt op de Duvel tripelhop van 2011! Dus dat was nog de gooie tripel hop.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. bottle procured @ ALBO. Cap says 04/2014 – maybe this is fresh – this BBF dates tell me little honestly, this might as well be 3 years old for all I know. Bright golden with a very creamy white head, collapsing. Light sweet, caramel with fruity USA hops, citrus, orange peel, mandarin (bitter), light grapefruit,… Bitter grapefruit blended with some sweetness, toffee, caramel, bitter citrus and mandarine and orange peel, light spices and some esters. Somewhat grainy and creamy body. Reminds me a bit of Duvel Triple hop which is probably what they were going for – pretty nice hybrid. Quite a lot of carb. – bit odd to drink a hoppy beer this heavy but interesting hybrid still…

Simply perfect! Sometimes I have a feeling that hops is the most important for a nice beer. Well balanced, dry, smoothly oily and cripsy ale. Greetings to De Graal. B@H

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle, shared by my beerpal Egil. ABV is 7.3%. Golden colour, hazy when the yeast is poured in the end. Large white head. Lovely strong hoppy aroma (American and possibly NZ hops), notes of tropical fruits, citrus and fir trees, some catty hints. Hoppy flavour throughout, fruity / citrussy notes, but not too bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Hazy orange with medium white head. Nose : tart with oranges, citrus zest. Soap. Sip : Low density liquid with whipped cream texture. Sweet tart with a bite from asian honey pomelo juice and some orange. Some little straw background. Overall it’s really fine and easy to drink beer. It’s also cheep in my country so it makes a great deal when I feel like an IPA glass.
