COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop House pays homage to the historic hop farm that stood on the brewery grounds over 100 years ago. Hop House combines the delicious aromas and flavors of a Belgian-style ale with generous hopping, including dry-hopping. A well-balanced, yet ample, hop character defines this fine pale ale, bringing Belgian-style beer lovers and hop-heads together to enjoy our Belgian-American love child.

Draught > Gingerman. This is good. Really good. I normally wouldn't order this b/c I think Belgian pales or IPAs don't mix well but since their wall was covered w/ a lot of crap from Rahr, Shiner and session IPAs I took a flyer. This is a solid easy drinker that isn't too fruity from the Belgian yeast. Pleasantly bitter for a pale ale and dry too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Amber pour, huge head. Nice spice aroma. Flavor is still suprisingly hoppy, nice american hops blend with the lighter belgian yeast strain.

On draft at Mudville 9 New York. Enjoyable hops balanced with Belgian character. Refreshingly hoppy without going too far. A solid summer choice.

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2014
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a rusty orange body under a huge frothy off white head. Aroma is big time Belgian yeast, saison like spices and white pepper, oranges, tropical fruits, wet toast. Medium to slightly fuller body, syrupy, lighter carbonation, drier finish. Flavor of rotting oranges, Belgian yeast, flower petals, grassy hops, spice. Interesting beer, nicely done.
