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

theSlipperyPen (280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Surely one of the most drinkable beers in the world - and certainly the best from the Chouffe range. Best drunk chilled from the fridge to get the sharper pineapple, mandarin and lemon flavours, which given a bit of time and temperature develop into mango, honey, big malt, candy sugar and apple custard. Very effervescent on opening and will almost always through up a heft of hops residue and yest, so pour carefully. It ends with a wonderfully juicy mouthful of green hops and Belgian malts and yeasts - what a fitting and wonderful combination. It’s really an "again" beer - as in when you’ve finished it you call out "AGAIN!"

Lacho (87) - USA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours beautifully, golden with a foamy white head. Aromas of green apples, and taste reminiscent of cava. Very crisp. Amazingly good for a Belgian IPA.

DijkBier (273) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2016
Bottle pours clear golden with a white head. Hoppy, floral aroma with citrus; little malty. Taste accordingly, medium bitterness, citrus/grapefruit, spices, little sweetness. Nice beer, but not totally convinced of the balance.

lupuLust (246) - Franke(n) im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2016
10.12.2016 - Spicy grassy notes of hop in aroma and taste. Thin taste of pale malt, but though a full body. Great crossover between IPA and Tripel but with much more hop fruitinesss and bitterness. Quite bitter dry and strong finish.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2016
Bright golden color, immaculate, with a white half-crown, from which comes a surprisingly faint perfume. In the aroma, high relevance of hops, on a sweet base of cereals and bread that brings remarkable notes of citrus, white grapes and grass, seasoned with a puff of clove and white pepper. The drink in the first moment floods the mouth with the sweet and creamy texture of a Belgian ale, starring malt, golden apple and lemon, and leaving in the background soft honey and minimal yeast, to end with the aggressiveness of hops, Accentuating the presence of citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit, pineapple and sharp notes of grass and pine, quite spicy, along a bitterness acid, rough and with a considerable alcoholic load.

hauxe (556) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2016
Pours hazy orange from the bottle and leaves a foamy, towering head. The aroma is Weizen, honey melon, and a whiff of pine. Lots of sticky lacing clings to the bottle. Overall a very pleasant start. The taste seems traditional Belgian more than American IPA, there’s a strong bready/yeasty tone, bubble gum, and noticeable clove. A hops bitterness becomes more pronounced during the finish and leaves behind a light tropical twang. Finishes with noticeable alcohol warmth. Palate is marred by light watery notes. A very good effort.

Goede tripel/IPA. Mooi goudkleurig, schuimkraag die lang blijft. Mij iets te ’scherp’, verder gewoon lekker.
