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.

This beer was somewhat interesting and unique, but it's the first ommegang beer that I haven't thought was fantastic. I found the aroma, flavors and mouthfeel to be thin. Light aroma of fresh hops, light hop flavors, light malts, thin/light mouthfeel. Just nothing really stands out on this one. Perhaps if I tried it on a warm day...

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, lemon peel, light Belgian yeast, grain, faint bubblegum, and florals, It pours a cloudy golden-orange with a two finger orange tinted off-white head that eventually fades to a thick film. There is some decent webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with hints of Belgian yeast and the slightest touch of bubblegum. The finish has moderate grapefruit and floral hops mixed with a touch of lemon grass and lemon peel.

Steverus0 (188) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours a hazy pumpkin with foamy, tight head that lingers. Nose is lovely citrus and florals, heavy on the tangerine side with just a hint of soap. Rich body with mild effervescence that's just right to clear the palate from the hops this brew delivers. A pleasant malt balance and subtle yeasts provide complexity and depth to this very pleasing brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It finishes lightly sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Lemon, citrus taste balanced with light funkiness and floral hop. Clean, highly drinkable. Nicely done. Can taste American and Belgian influences — a nice combination.

drtth (14) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Nice white frothy head just over 1" in a Duvel glass. The golden liquid and slowly receding head give off a nice blend of hop and malt smells. The flavor is intitially dominated by the bitterness of the hops but as the beer warms to room temperature the favor becomes more complex with the addition of yeast flavors and pale malt sweetness in the background. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and the carbonation is definetly noticable and persistent. The finsh is quite long and slowly tapers off to some nice dry bitterness that readily invites another ship. Overall a quite nice beer and one I intend to revisit.

Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a large dense white head. Soft musk and a bit of dusty hops. Medium bodied, a touch of sweetness, a hint of caramel. More dusty hops, gentle muskiness. Easy drinking. Finishes with a bit of citrus into a nice musky bitterness.
