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.

Ha, it took me a minute to realize what I had here, presupposing it was just an IPA, I thought, oh man, its old. No, its a Belgian IPA. And its fine. Nice light banana wheat citrus zest phenol that I would otherwise not like but is balanced by the fruitiness and spicy hopping, resiny bitter finish.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottled. Poured medium orange with lots of sediment and a sticky white head.. lots of carbonation too. The aroma picked up mostly biscuity malts with white pepper, clove, and dried herbal hop accents. The flavor found biscuit and bready malts at the core, with Belgian-y yeast spices, a heavy dose of bitter hoppage (earth, herbal, and pine), and carbonation throughout.. finished dry and spicy. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate (a bit heavy for me).. tasty.

mile (3314) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, light caramel and floral fruitiness with light citrus, light - some citrus hoppyness, light yeast. Body is medium, malty - some wheat and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and floral fruitiness with light - some citrus hoppyness, Finish is average, malty - lightly heaty and lightly sweetish, light floral fruitiness, some citrus hoppyness, light yeast. Floral fruitiness and bitterness just do not work here together. Just a mongrel.

Bottle from Antioch. Unclear orange pour without much head. Nose has some orange, some bread, some grain and light tang. Taste is bready grapefruit and orange, some tangy Belgian yeast. Light to medium bodied, little alcohol presence. Finishes bittersweet and fruity. Nice tasty effort. 13.7

It seems no one in their reviews can quite agree what the fruit is in the nose - I am not sure but it seems to be pears and/or apples. Also a little candy and yeasty twang. Full retained head, leaves a touch of soapy lacing. Yes hazy. Taste is right on, a bit of hop grit in the background and at the finish, but it plays a secondary and balancing role. Mouthfeel is playful, quite a tang of small bubble carbonation, The feel when rolling it around is thick and oily. This is a really well made beer.

Smelled really good; consisted of Belgian yeast, light citrus and other fruit as well as bread dough. Pours a hazy golden yellow. Didn’t taste quite as strong as the aromas were. Finishes bitter with a slight tartness from the yeast. Certainly a good beer.

12 oz. bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, pale malts, doughy bready, citrus, citrus peel that adds some bitterness, floral character, light spice, solid for what it is.
