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

Dikke schuimkraag. Goudgeel troubel kleurtje. Je ruikt een lichte fruitig met een toon van citrus. Smaakt vol zoet bloemig en niet al te bitter maar proef de hop. Beetje verwarrend is tripple IPA maar zou net zo goed een zwaar blond biertje of een abdij biertje kunnen zijn. Maar dat is precies de bedoeling van deze brouwer. Het biertje drinkt gewoon lekker weg maar met dit soort percentage’s best gevaarlijk. Niet te min in zijn klasse een knap gebrouwen biertje.

Bottle. Clear golden brew with a huge white frothy head. High retention. The aroma is a compination of your regular Belgian Tripel and fruity hops. Feels natural and balanced. Medium body. Soft carbonation. The flavour front is malty with that usual Belgian yeast spiciness along. The mid taste is drier and more bitter. All the power of the hops takes the lead bat medium bitter citrusy finish. Hoppy aftertaste. Well done.

Bottle. A very nice balance of tripel style and somewhat hoppy ale style flavours.

Sampled at Boulevardia 2017. Comes a somewhat hazy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and yeast. Taste is yeast, citrus, and malt. More of a Belgian than an IPA. Interesting.

Juanmi1 (23) - boadilla del monte, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2017
triple IPA de 9° con color dorado amarillento.Espuma blanca y consistente. El aroma es de lúpulo intenso y noble. No hay estridencias en este o estos lúpulos. en boca tiene una entrada amarga y algo ácida.Es amargo persistente e intenso.refrescante.Demasiado alcohólico. cuerpo aparentemente ligero. Amarga,fresca,alcohólica,en general buena aunque con alguna arista.

Bue 5 mois avant DLC au stage parapente UCPA 2017. Blonde gros col de mousse. Arôme herbacés du houblon. Tres herbacé mais douce en même temps. Bonne rondeur. Bonne amertume. Géniale !

0,7 litre Bottle from Systembolaget, at home. Light in colour, medium head. Not much IPA taste, a bit dissapointing...

Pure white rocky head left bubbles on an opaque light golden still body. Hoppy aroma with hints of malt. Medium bodied. Highly carbonated. Crisp & clean. Dry on the back. Big fruity hoppy flavours with banana, Belgian yeast, lots of bitter citrus & pith. This is followed by a very long bitter, dry finish.

Helles trübes gelb, luftiger schaum, kräuterig grasig hopfig leichte Frucht; im Geschmack etwas süß kräuterig hopfig etwas buttrig herb fruchtige Abgang

DrNosha (2507) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2017
33cl Flasche trübes hellgelbs Bier mit grobem weissem Schaum. Seifiger Hopfenduft. Kräuter und Zitronenschale. Kräftig bitterer Antrunk. Für ein IIPA recht ungewöhnlich. Marzipan im Abgang. Für mich ist dieses Bier deutlich überbewertet.
