Pours hazy light amber. Large white-yellow head. Aroma of hops, citrus, flowers. Not nearly as bitter as a typical IPA this Belgium style triple IPA is very mellow and complex in flavor, with malt tones and not dominated by bitter hops. Very pleasant with no alcohol burn. Dry finish.

16.9.2014. Reddish orange beer with thick head. Aroma has berries, yeast and fruits. Also taste is fruity, dry fruits, berries, some alcohol, pine and citrus, zest and some caramel. This is a great combination of belgian ale with spicy belgian yeast and fruitiness and dipa hoppiness.

D’un orange ocre légèrement trouble, cette bière moyennement carbonée combine des arômes de pêche, de giroflée, de jasmin froissé. La première bouche est fraîche (difficile de deviner les 9° d’alcool) comme un blanc de Loire; la seconde, tout en agrumes et en herbes aromatiques fait saliver et monte au nez; la troisième rappelle le pain de seigle au levain, la quinine du pharmacien. Et cette amertume, cette douceur mêlées sont si longues en bouche qu’on peut boire le même verre pendant des heures.

thirstyrabbit (1276) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle. Light orange body, tall head. Aroma has sweet strawberries and some overripe oranges. Messy fruity taste with a limp rotten orange peel zest and some sweet malt. Finish has some cough syrup. After the excellent Obscura it’s a real letdown. Triple IPA? In terms of bitterness, even Double IPA is a stretch for this. However, the semi-rotten tastes distract the alcohol relatively well so if you’re into that sort of things I say go for it!

Robe ambrée. Beau nez de houblon frais, note pétrolée, touche fumée et gingembre. Bouche superbe d’équilibre entre l’ampleur d’une triple et la tension d’une IPA, bel équilibre en finale.

Cnesta (21) - grand prairie, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2015
It doesnt have the mouthfeel or maltiness that is typical of a double IPA nor the hop aroma. Due to this, it is decidely easier to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Serapac (193) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy amber with large head, good retention. Typical IPA aroma of citruses and hops, some pine needle. Taste mote bitter-sweet than the aroma would suggest: appricots, grapefruits. Finish mainly bitter. Medium body, the high ABV doesn't show too strongly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@Palais du Houblon. Bière ambrée au caractère d’une tripe un peu plus forte en alccol et en houblon. Les houblons aromatiques, surtout ceux infusés à froid, envahissent les narines avec de fortes senteurs fruitées : du citron, de l’ananas, des herbes sauvages, le tout accompagné de fort relents de levure, et du sucre d’orge. En bouche, le maltage est panifié légèrement toasté mais avec un fini laissant le palais légèrement pâteux; le tout accompagnée de cette levure fruité aux accents mielleux. Je dois dire que c’est assez pesant en sucre et en alcool, j’ai l’impression d’avoir un bonbon amère en bouche. Dommage, ce fort accent régionaliste. Heureusement son houblonnage prépondérant sauve le produit.

Cardboard. It has been stored at room temperature too long. Some citrus still comes through, I think a little aging will do it some good, but this one may be a goner. Some honey comes out in the taste.

Very nice Triple IPA with the most remarkable aroma of fruity hops, caramel and chocolate. I’m getting more and more impressed by the Troubadour-beers.
