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...

ryecatcher (1012) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle. Not sure what makes this a Belgian anything... tastes like an average Pale Ale, with no trace of the signature yeasty funk I expect from any beer style with the word íBelgianí in it (Ommegang just trying to cash in on the hop rage after all these years). Fuckin lame.

yngwie (15374) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle, at the Corner Foodery, Philadelphia. A creamy, off-white head forms over a hazy, orange colored body, releasing aromas of oranges, zest mostly, some Belgian yeastyness and a spiced touch. Nice bitterness in the flavor, not too sweet, with citrus zest and some sweetish malts. Itís full-bodied, smooth and with a nice carbonation. Rather dry. Long belgo finish with oranges and a decent bitterness. Nice indeed. 150622

Bottle from Buffalo NY. Fat fluffy head w/citrus hop aroma. If this was a blind taste test Iíd say "A very nice IPA." Very drinkable & tasty.

weihenweizen (2192) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a Trappist glass. Deep translucent light orange with big bright white head. Aroma is dry orangey yeast, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is yeasty, herbal hops, some orange, and dry finish. Good Belgian ale.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Moderate grain and straw for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs and grass for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with a hint of melon in the background. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, slightly off-white with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a lively to fizzy carbonation. Hoppy and grainy, itís a nice unique Belgian Ale.

Great balance for a pale ale. Nice hop bite. More malt than a lot of pale ales.

574deadzone (1208) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Draft. Pours a hazy gold to copper with a decent sized khaki head that settles slowly and laces nicely. Cascade hop spice and pine shines alongside some tame yet distinct Belgian yeast spice and phenols, along with some caramel and toasted malt. Somewhat sweet, fairly bitter. Light to medium bodied, somewhat grainy, fairly active, finishing dry and spicy. Decent brew, on the milder side all around, but not lacking character.

TH28 (251) - - MAY 8, 2015
12oz bottle. No code date. Appearance: Dark golden with orange tint, hazy, with a thick frothy white head. Aroma: Grassy, earthy, floral hop notes stand out. Hint of citrusy yeast esters. Taste: Sweet bready malt quickly turns to a sharp citric bitterness. grassy hop flavor hits on the swallow. Apple and pear yeast flavors appear as well Mouthfeel: Medium with some creaminess and a sharp carbonation. Finish: Dry an sticky on the tongue, with lingering bitterness, and flavors of fresh cut grass, apple, and pear. Overall: Wow. Amazing blend of a Belgian Pale Ale, with crazy American hopping. Hops dominate the nose, but the Belgian yeast comes thru well in the taste.
