On tap at Mondial, and I think my first encounter with citra hops. This one came heavily recommended by a friend, and turned out to be a very tasty pick.

Hazy golden pour with a thick creamy head that left rings of lace on the glass as it settled to a heavy film. The aroma is awesome, with a boatload of sweet juicy citrus, tropical fruit, candy sugar and Belgian yeast. Its like some sort of delicious, juicy hop perfume. The flavour profile puts this more towards the more honey inclined tripels than the grainy ones. Its got a good dose of honey malt, biscuit and caramel, but really the hops are the star. Lots of sweet orange, pineapple and mango with a whack of pine, which provides an assertive bitterness. Nice phenolic yeast too. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

This is one hopped-up tripel, and true to form DDC nail it. Bravo fellas!

On tap at Mondial. This is a tripel with 100% Citra hops.

Pours a lightly hazy light golden yellow, a bit of straw in the corners, thick white head forms and settles down to a thick layer and ring around the glass, nice lacing.

Smell is great, very fruity, big citrus kick from the hops, grapefruit, oranges, some honey and toasty malt, alcohol, tropical fruit, yeast, still has that Belgian feel with a kickass hop presence.

Taste is similar, light and malty up front, some honey/caramel, biscuit, lightly sugary, fruit, alcohol, big citrus hop character, some pine, real nice finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Wow, insanely hoppy tripel that still smells/tastes/feels like a tripel. Amazing stuff.
