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.

On tap @ Provisions Market. Finally getting around to trying this. Clear golden-orange pour with a white head. Really zesty lime and lemon aromas. Clean, bready malt, cracker, and a bit of grass clippings. Slight pear juice. Mild sweetness on the palate. Good bread and malt flavors all the way through. Pleasant lime zest hop character, a bit of grass, and a crisp bitterness. Hints of pear, flowers, and white pepper. Good.

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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with long lasting white foamy head. Welcome to Belgium! Aromas of toasted biscuit, yeast, Belgian sugar, some pear, but not much for hops. Lighter to medium body. Seemed a tad thin. Toasted bread, yeast, light spice all in the flavor with a mildly dry finish but not incredibly hopped up bitterness. Very nice but not quite as exciting as one from a Belgian Abbey.

BierMeHoos (243) - Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is cloudy golden yellow. Aroma is spicy yeastiness, wheat husk, melon fruit. Taste is yeasty-spicy-wheaty flavors, balanced hop bitterness precedes a long, ultra-dry finish. Palate is crisp, medium-bodied, oily. Good hoppy Belgian pale.

I have to admit I have been holding this bottle for awhile, which isn’t a good idea with hop forward type beers, however, this beer is an exception. Beer pours cloudy to the point of occlusion, golden color with a prodigious egg white colored head that is totally retained. Big grassy aroma with earth and dough. Taste is bitter and in quite a good way. This is a delicious beer that I would be glad to experience again.

Dark gold color with a pillowy white head. Smell is yeasty / grassy. Taste is bitter with a slightly sweet finish. A solid Belgian style ale!

Cloudy, orange-golden-copper, white head, and nice lacing. Orange, citrus, floral, and spice. Medium bodied, silky, citrus, spice, mild salt, and lemon. Nice balance, dry notes, and medium bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Golden in color and a little hazy. Strong hop nose, but also the smell of cheese. Hoppy, but very well balanced. Clean finish, not bitter. Yummy!

Pours a nice golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is very pleasant. Notes of Apricots, honey, sweet malts, spice, oranges, citrus zest. Tastes of orange, honey, spice, coriander, apricots, peaches, pine trees, grapefruit. Very good beer!
