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.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
Floral, spicy hop aroma with citrus orange peel. Color is golden slightly, with a large head with good retention. Citrus, grainy flavor with strong pepper notes on the end. Hop bitterness is high and the balance is more towards the bitterness side. Mouthfeel is medium light with a high level of carbonation that tingles the mouth. Astringency is noticeable on the end. Overall, a disappointing beer from Ommegang. Aroma is pleasant, but the flavor has too much going on between the hop bitterness, the Belgian esters and the strong astringent pepper notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was poured into a tulip glass. The appearance had a hazy bronzed depth circling under a semi-rocky foamy white head. Lacing appears nice and sticky around the glass. The smell had a semi-sweet grassiness covering light tropical and citrus hops. Light breadiness blends into balance. The taste was mainly sweet with a nice light juicy citrus underneath. Fresh citrus hits in the aftertaste. Semi-dry citrus rind hits in the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the citrus bitterness hit nicely. A definite dryness hits my tongue nicely. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian pale ale, it hits all of the marks for the style. It just comes across a bit dryer than others of its style. Definitely one to have with its food.

Finhead (1435) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is slightly earthy along with some faint citrus. It has a light body with fizzy carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a mildly dry finish.

Deep gold, clear, tight lace. Full body, intense flavor, nice carbonation and heat. Bitter, dry. Very hoppy, not enough malt, for me. Big beer, not well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden, generous white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of hops, some citrus fruits; some floral notes and yeast. Taste is a nice surprise, quite hoppy, bitter; citrus notes, some yeast and some malts. Very interesting and enjoyable beer.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden with an extremely frothy white head. Decent beer for the style though I find the hybrid to be less enjoyable than a pure IPA or a straight Belgian ale. It definitely has some great hop notes similar to a Californian IPA but then the yeasty Belgian notes show up and throw my taste buds into confusion.
