I did! I think I'll brew the one that's in the magazine and see what happens. If it turns out well I may do another with 10% Munich.

Yea I know. I probably should not use the citra late additions, but heck, I like to experiment. The only noble hops I have on hand are Hallertau. I could use 4 ozs of them, but I figured if I am using citra, might as well try the calyspo. So I guess I am not really brewing a true triple, but I was inspired.

I had just bottled my triple before I got the magazine. It was damn tasty, too, from BCS

Not so much inspired as given an extra push. I've wanted to brew a tripel for a while. But, it may be beyond the skills of my limited all-grain experience.

Yep, that one's going into the "to be brewed" queue. I'll probably just go with the recipe in the magazine.

I've also wanted to brew a triple for awhile. Tripels are pretty much the only Belgians I really, really like. La Fin du Monde is one of my favorite beers. I'll probably do one after my brown ale that I have up next.

Love it. Use the Citra! Check out some Tripel IPA recipes. May want to dry hop too.
