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

Very much in the style of a Begian IPA. Light and refreshing despite the 9% ABV. Finishes with a sweet flavor. The only down side was the price.

Mindwarp (285) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Nice floral aroma. Taste is and different from other ipas to me this seems almost have a malt taste to it with some bitterness to it which is good. Overall not my favorite IPA

10 ounce glass at the Winking Lizard Copley. Smells sweet and yeasty. Light white head, with film on the glass. Light yellow and somewhat hazy in color. Taste sweet, somewhat yeasty. Smooth. Alcohol pretty well disguised. Overall a pretty wonderful beer.

MasDen (459) - Mogilev, BELARUS - SEP 29, 2017
Very good hops aroma of citrus and floral. Yellow, a bit haze with great white head. juicy taste of fruit, turning into a great bitterness with a taste of alcohol. Excellent warms. Medium body, smooth in tongue, large carbonation.

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

pleispleis (142) - 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

TomHendriksen (718) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken met Roelzie1986. Het is een goudgeel bier met stevige schuimkraag. Aroma is fruitig en hoppig. De smaak is hoppig en bitter.
