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

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.

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

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.

I kinda wonder why they associate Belgian beers with IPAs... it’s another game! This is a Tripel with some more hops, easy as it is! Anyway it’s enjoyable. Pours hazy golden, big soapy head, some sticky lacing. Aroma of Belgian malts and yeast, with some hints of hoppy fruitiness. Tastes is still on the Belgian Tripel though, malty, yeasty, sugary but not too much, with some mild hoppy notes that supply a mild bitterness and some citrus. The hoppy character is more evident in the after taste. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy, long finish. Overall a decent fusion beer.

oberschlesier (120) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - JUN 7, 2017
Aroma and taste of typical belgian yeast, high carbonation. I don’t feel aroma of hops here. Maybe it’s good in belgian styles, but offers nothing interesting in IIPA style. I even don’t know how to rate this beer, so I give just average rate.

Si duda una de las mejores doble IPAs que e probado en la pequeña trallectora de este gran universo de las cervezas artesanales
