330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Pale golden, slightly hazy, two finger head, pretty decent retention, left lots of lacing on the glass.

S: Phenols, earth and starch took on and beat the citrus hops in the battle for attention.

T: Followed the nose, strong hints of grapefruit, long hard lingering bitterness which was combined with the typical yeast profile of La Chouffe beers, also had a boozy kick.

M: Moderate carbonation, fairly light body for the high strength, crisp texture.

O: Definitely a Belgian tripel, had more in commonwith Val Dieu or Straffe Hendrik tripel than any American IPA.

Found this at a fair $3.99 in Vintage Estate in Ohio.

A - Very nice no sediment and a 1/2 inch of rocking foam atop of a slightly hazy bright yellow.
S - Fruity Belgium yeasts blend well with the citrus hop zest and fruity bubble gum notes.
T - Love the smooth flavor hoppy but not bitter and dry but not super yeasty. Great fruity Belgium taste with a nice bready body.
M - One of the smoothest Belgium IPA's I have had to date. No noticeable ABV

Overall wow I can't believe I passed on this for so long! Pick it up even if it's 5-6 dollars!
