COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique marriage between the English tradition of IPAs, the new American revolution of Imperial IPAs and the classic Belgian way of brewing. Houblon Chouffe, although very much hopped as it is, showcases the unique balance between a very strong IPA and a very special Belgian Tripel exclusively created for this ale (Big malty body, distinct dryness, expressive estery fruitiness). - IBU: 59, Original Gravity: 1092

Bottle. Clear straw with a nice white head. Phenolic spicy aroma with herbal hoppy notes. Sweet and bitter taste with a crispy bitter finish. Medium body, nice warmth on finish. An excellent warmer, brilliant!

Rubia, con espema sedosa de un dedo al echarla, buena retencion, cerveza que no termino de pillarle el punto, no se parece en mucho a las ipas, tanpoco es una triple belga clasica, equilibrada, final alcogolico y seco. No es mi estilo

Quite high carbonation, almost clear golden colour, big head. Aroma: citrous, spices, bubblegum, wheat. Full body, medium to high sweetness, medium bitterness. Malty flavour with lots of fruits both malty and hoppy. Excellent hidden alcohol, bit rush bitterness.

Nice tripple. Ipa style is there. A good one. But nothing to write home about. Apparence as expected. Palate with enough bitterness. Taste is well balanced. So much balance let me wonder afterwards what the point was...

Jesper86 (103) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Interesting combination of a Belgian triple but than with more hops. Not in an aggressive way. The bitterness is present, but not as much as an IPA. Grain, grass, some lemon, subtle grapefruit. Creamy. Long finish.

Thick medium head, light golden, slightly hazy. Intense aroma of candies, sweet tropical fruit hops, cheese. Dry, bitter, refreshing with long sharp bitter finish. Good, but too sharp.
