Belgium and England collide in this beer, as Chouffe Houblon is a Belgian take on an English style of beer, the IPA. The practice of dry hopping, where bells of hops are added during maturation, makes for a beer that is markedly hoppy on both the nose and palate. It is also worth noting that this beer is re-fermented in the barrel and in the bottle. The result is an IPA with a citrusy nose, especially grapefruit. This same fruit punctuates the complex hoppiness on the palate, balanced by more fruitiness from the yeast and a high alcohol volume.
