COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triomphe: Belgian IPA 6.5% abv 16 oz large tulip glass This beer is made with a classic Belgian style yeast strain that gives the complexity and slight sweetness you may expect from a Belgian style ale, but then reaches deeper providing a smack-down of American hops. Served in a large Tulip glass to capture the and focus the hop aromas.

Big can! Pours a very clear mandarin with a sudsy head. Aromas are very faint... a little bit of barnyard funk, silo/grain dust and herbs. After the beer sits for a couple of minutes, I take another sniff and get blasted with resin and pine, but then its gone again. Im pretty sure there is some sort of voodoo magic protecting this beer from my nose... First sip reveals that the dark magic might be affecting my palate as well. About all I get from it is a tingly hops sensation on the back of the tongue in the late aftertaste. The second sip reveals a bit more complexity, but the flavors (and aromas) seem to be playing hide and seek with me. A little bit of citrus (orange), a little bit of grass, some sweet and a little edge of tartness is about as descriptive as I can be (oh, with that tingly hops finish.) Interesting stuff, but it seems to vex me a bit.

Nice beer but not as hoppy as I expected. . Had at Brewery Vivant's tap room in Grand Rapids with Raith.

16oz can from the Deli Lama in Lake Villa. Pours an orangey copper with a white head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has spices and pine and plastic. Maybe citrus. Taste is of tangy spicy yeast, pine and resin. Some malt chasing way underneath. Light to medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes long and tangy sweet with a bitter undercurrent. Interesting. Too many guns in the wrong direction -- in the belgian-y line opposed to the ipa-ish line.

wedgie9 (2652) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Tasted in October 2011 from a 16oz can shared at a tasting. Pours hazy bright orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dusty and fruity with some citrus and resin hops, along with apricot with a green cucumber note. The flavor is pretty much the same with the fruity apricot up front, moving to citrus and resin hops and bitter cucumber skin. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, fruity, and lightly bitter finish.

jcr (2584) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Can. Deep gold/amber body. Frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Light aroma of spice and raw grain. Whisper of citrus and straw. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. I finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Either the Belgian yeast and American hops are clashing or the beer was slightly infected (likely), but theres a vinegar aftertaste that is off-putting. Other than that, youll find clove and a light raw vegetable taste.

Can, Ann Arbor, MI via Plum Market. Murky amber gold. Citrus resin aroma. Some honey. Sweet, then a metallic hop flavour with some chalkiness. More honey on the long dry finish.

Tap at vivant. Hazy reddish orange body with medium white head. Aroma of spicy, soapy hops, bitterness and some citrus rind. Flavor of light grapefruit and grass, lightly sweetened malt, and a touch of orange.

tmongoose (2264) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2015
16oz can shared. Poured s medium orange with off white head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast and malt and hops. Nothing offensive just kind of generic in nature. The flavor was of mild Belgian style and mild hops like it is almost afraid to jump out the can. Could have been a whole lot better. But just average instead.

16oz can from rayl101. Pours a clear copper color with off-white head and nice carbonation. Some lacing is left behind as the head falls. Aroma is carmel, some citrus, wood. Taste follow suit, but is not overly bitter. Its a bit thin which detracts from the beer although it does make it go down easily. Missing something.

Rich amber color and solid body. Hops in aroma and taste, off set by some Belgian yeast spice.
