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

The most interesting thing here is the hybrid of styles. The hops seem very well done, but I wonder if it’s the high carbonation. Either way, very tasty. This one is dangerous because it does not taste boozy at all.

Butelka 0,33 l. Wypita 23.09.2017. Barwa bardzo jasna, nie przejrzysta. Alkohol w smaku mało wyczuwalny, ale mocno rozgrzewający.

pleispleis (134) - Maccagno, ITALY - SEP 23, 2017
bottiglia 33 cl, bel cappello di schiuma bianca media grana molto persistente, color oro limpido, al naso malto pompelmo e intenso odore di luppolo, in bocca malto intenso luppolo e mela verde, carbonatazione decisa, di medio corpo, l'alcool si sente un po’ troppo, amaro veramente accentuato molto lungo nel finale. Una triple IPA? Non l'avrò capita ma non mi ha entusiasmato. 23.09.17

Extra gehopte 'ipa triple' met een fris zurige smaak en stevig prikkelende droge en bittere afdronk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flesje thuis gedronken met Roelzie1986. Het is een goudgeel bier met stevige schuimkraag. Aroma is fruitig en hoppig. De smaak is hoppig en bitter.

Nosferaticus (11) - Stalowa Wola, POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Aromat słodki słodowy, lekko przyprawowy,belgijskie drożdże, ziołowo-chmielowy. Kolor słomkowy, nie przejrzysty, piana na początku obfita, zbita po kilku minutach redukuje się do paseczka, oblepia szkło. Smak przyprawy, chmielowa goryczka, po na powietrzeniu lekka słodycz pod goryczką. Odczucie w ustach zalegająca goryczka, po kilku minutach przechodzi w owocowe nuty.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 Aromaen er en lille smule lukket, men har tydelig humle karakter. I munden er der stor fylde, minder lidt om en abbey tripel, men meget mere bitter. En af mine favoritter.

Bottle (not sure it's that exact beer that's the only chouffe IPA registered here). A golden beer with sediment floating around under a whipped cream like head. The aroma is sweet with lots of spices and malt notes. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of citrus and spices, the notes of spices grows in intensity towards the end, which is quite dry. An OK Belgian ale, but I had expected much more hops in it.

Bardzo ciekawy aromat, jak na Belga. Nuty białego wina, delikatnie podwędzone. Nie wiem, skąd ta wędzonka. Naprawdę znikoma, ale jest. Trochę octu winnego. Gnijące owoce. W smaku znowu trochę wina; słodycz bardzo delikatna. Dla mnie bomba.
