look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

eyes...
frothy foam monster, 4 fingers of crystal white head, medium sizzle, very cloudy pale straw color, pretty sticky up the glass, the head really takes some time to calm down, a good amount of carbonation is running up through the glass, on point for the style (as you would expect from duvel)

nose...
nice doughy sweet bready aroma with hops on the back end, some banana notes, the hops feel like the more musty/dirty/earthy type which is a nice background for the sweeter honey notes to play off of, nice balance here considering the aroma is quite strong

taste etc...
medium feel carried by the carbonation which adds just a prickly wrinkle right before the bitters in the aftertaste, first blast is minor bittering that melds into banana flavors and bready tones that then melts away into mild bitterness in the corners of your mouth, this is very easy to drink and there is just a hint of warming in the stomach from the ABV, the hops really give this beer amazing depth and character

verdict?
fantastic, for someone who is put off by uber sugary tripels this really hits the mark, there is some sugar there but man the hops balance this out superbly, I expected this to be good as Duvel has been great forever but this far exceeded my expectations

Aroma: Melon like esters up front. Pear and stone fruit abound as it warms. Aroma profile is very similar to "regular" Duvel. Which is world class.

Appearance: Hazy golden pour with effervescence bouncing around my Duvel tulip. Typical rocky, ice cream float-looking bone white head that retains for days. Lovely lacing all over the glass.

Flavor: Melon and grape must-like flavors up front. Has a hint of champagne grape flavor with more cantaloupe as it warms. Balance is firmly to the bitter. Hop flavor is more grassy and honey-like. Finish is bone dry. Aftertaste is lingering and leaves the melon character on the back of the palate.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, highly carbonated. Spritzy with a champagne-like character. No heat, creaminess, or astringency noted.

Overall impression: Wow. I love Duvel and this "hopped up" version is world class. I love the champagne quality and classic flavor that this beer delivers. Excellent.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Semi-hazy straw color. Poured a super thick, foamy 2 finger head. Awesome sticky lacing.
S- Apple, pear, lemon, pepper, booze, a touch of pine and spicy hops. There's some banana in there, too.
T- Apple, pear, Belgian yeast, earthy-spicy hops, lemon, banana, and a touch of booze. Grapefruit shows up just before the finish. Aftertaste is a mix of peppery, spicy, and citrus sweetness.
M- Medium body with super crisp effervescent carbonation. Kind of drying with a lingering bitterness.
O- This was pretty good. I liked it much better than regular Duvel. There was a lot going on, and each flavor seemed pretty balanced with the others. Overall, a nicely comlex and flavorful beer.

Tripel Hop pours a golden color with a small head. The aroma has a dry grape like flavor, much like a champagne; very bold. The taste is very dry noticeable hop, but a dry white grape flavor, again like a champagne. Very drinkable, very nice feel, and nice dry flavors. Overall its a very nice and fine drinking beer.

4.01/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A murky and somewhat cloudy body, that is deep yellow and slightly green with a nice middle column of rising carbonation in the center. Fluffy white is produced with some agitation, about two fingers tall with a creamy top and thick sheen.

Interesting hop nose on this, slightly medicinal but moves to floral and thick perfumed soap. Slightly powdery sensations and dry, with a bit of leafy mint sticking out a bit.

Large champagne like crisp body, with a good controlled and large bitterness to match. Nice hop forward action matched to the nose, with mild perfume and soap downplayed. Some nice aromatic finish and light sweetness, with the bitterness dominating just a little. There is not much aftertaste on this though with much of the flavor in the front palate. Slightly fleeting as well and some of that grassy hay like character also.

Real nice take but I prefer the Sorachi Ace versions.
