Does this sound amazing to anyone else? I wish I could find some on the East coast to sample...

Trippel IPA | New Belgium

Trippel IPA

Bringing together what we both do best, New Belgium and Elysian's brewmasters create a Belgian-inspired India Pale Ale. Hop-forward with a Belgian strong yeast, this Trippel IPA opens with citrus and floral tones from generous hopping, then gives way to soft peachy notes implied by the yeast.

What's this Trip about?

An artisinal collaboration, New Belgium and Elysian are brewing limited small batches together. We've described this new adventure as The Trip, and each beer we release will fall under this brand. By joining, we have the ability to increase efficiency, encourage creative experimentation, and take a bold step into the future of American craft brewing.

The Trip beers will only be available on draft in the Northwest.

I haven't had it (can't get any NB out here at all), but I've had the Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel, which I liked a lot. It sounds similar, except from Belgium.

Green Flashes Le Freak is arguably the best known commercial Tripel IPA. It's damn good, but I like my version (posted in my recipes) better.

I just got back from a trip to Beligum last monday and I am on a hard belgian kick.

I have a Belgian Wit going right now and was considering doing a bigger tripel on top of it. When I looked at my wall and saw my bottle of Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel, I knew what I had to do.

The Houblon Belge Belgian Style IPA looks awesome. Any prayer of converting this too extract?

So jealous. I hope to be making that trip in the next few years also.

the la chouffe is the best one brewed as a belgian and the le freak is the best that is brewed as an american ale at least in my opinion.

Terrapin brewing company!!! I have not tried this but saw it in the beer store and was so tempted. Terrapins Side Projects are really cool. (The first one was "Hop Shortage Ale". Anyway, their most recent is Monks Revenge. A BELGIAN STYLE IMPERIAL INDIA PALE ALE. Sounds interesting

I'm going through a Belgian kick right now and picked up my first Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel. Can't wait to try it. My local brew pub, Offshore Ale, has a Tripel IPA as well. That'll be next.
