Over 5,000 participants volunteered for the blind tasting and cast their votes. Citra was the clear winner. The second Duvel Tripel Hop ever to be made was therefore given a permanent place in our range.

Our brewers use the dry-hopping technique to make Duvel Tripel Hop. The third hop variety is added in a later phase of the brewing process, making the hop aromas more intense and refined in the final beer. The third hop variety, Citra, is grown in the Yakima Valley in Washington.

ABV: 9.5%

Duvel, a name synonymous with quality brewing, brings forth the Duvel Tripel Hop Citra, a Belgian IPA that stands out in the world of beers. This particular brew has a history of taste evolution. Back in 2007, Duvel embarked on a journey of experimenting with dry hop varieties, and by 2012, the Citra hop was introduced, bringing with it an unparalleled pairing of intense citrus aromas over a dry-bitter snap.

The Citra hop, the star of this beer, is grown in the Yakima Valley of Washington. This region, blessed with around 300 sunny days a year and temperatures soaring up to 40°C, is a haven for hop cultivation. The unique combination of sunshine and mountain irrigation ensures the hops flourish, capturing the essence of the valley in every cone.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Golden hue with a slight haze, topped with a frothy white head.
  • Aroma: Dominant citrus notes, especially grapefruit, with a hint of tropical fruit.
  • Flavour: Refreshing and full, with intense citrus aromas, complemented by a balanced bitterness.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth and effervescent, leaving a lingering taste of hops on the palate.

The dry-hopping technique employed by Duvel's brewers doesn't just add a third hop; it elevates the beer's profile. By adding extra hops post the initial fermentation, the oils remain intact, boosting the hop flavours and aromas without increasing the beer's bitterness.

Hedwig Neven, the head brewer at Duvel, remarks, "Due to its intense citrus and grapefruit profile, Citra complements and boosts the aromatic characteristics inherently present in the classic Duvel. This Duvel Tripel Hop will therefore please many specialty beer lovers, while we will always ensure that the intrinsic Duvel characteristics are preserved."

In conclusion, the Duvel Tripel Hop Citra is not just a drink; it's an experience. It's a blend of tradition, innovation, and the pure passion of brewing. Whether you're a seasoned beer lover or someone new to the world of craft beers, this is a must-try. So, why wait? Purchase online or in-store now and dive into a world of intense flavours and aromas.
