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.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aromas are sweet and floral with citrus notes of tangerine and grapefruit along with a touch of banana and a bit of dry clove-like spice. The beer is a hazy gold-yellow with a soapy white head. A medium ring is retained with a fluffy island and decent lacing along the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and medium-light, mellow bitter. Thereís a fuzzy, soft carbonation to this medium-bodied, thin textured beer. Citrus and bread fill the flavor profile with a light, zesty and grassy finish. Itís clean with a bready aftertaste.

Arcadia (23) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a hazy/murky gold with a medium head that slowly dissipates, though not entirely. Very noticeable particles. Not much lacing to speak of. Aroma is surprisingly fruity; mostly lemon, hints of yeast. Taste is rather sweet, somewhat dry on the finish. Light bodied and overall refreshing. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holy lemon. Tons of lemon dominate the aroma. Itís so fresh smelling. The color is hazy and gorgeous. The taste is just so good. So much citrus, sweet belgian yeast, and hops. So much flavor. I have been very skeptical about Ommegang beers but this one is so solid I will definitely be trying more.

Suttree (5222) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Really enjoyed this one. I have had other so-called "Belgian Pale Ales" that either overstate the hops or end up being way too yeasty. This was a good mix of both, with plenty of fruity yeasty flavors up front and a good crisp hop finish. Tasty!

arkurzynski (1558) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Deep golden pour. Nose of citrus rind and mild pine with candy and Belgian yeast. Flavor has an initial solid bitter citrus and rind followed by gentle Belgian yeast esters and golden malt. Lingering bitter citrus. Lightly dry with good carb.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Sample at Mongoose vs Cobra. Hazy orange color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine and malt. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, fruit and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a floral yeast and hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

wlajwl (3997) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Aroma is bread/wheat, light citrus, mild spices and hops. The flavor is malts, citrus/fruit, Belgian yeast and a hoppy/slightly sour finish. As far as authentic Belgian ales go, even with so many influenced by American hops, this one goes hoppy but still very Belgian; not many can say that.

edwardbass (539) - Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Murky golden orange with a huge white head. The hop flavor is the strongest Iíve tried for a Belgian ale, citrusy hops with lemony yeast sourness that meld together nicely, and a bit of spice in the background. Iím really enjoying this one.

nearbeer (3810) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2014
12 oz. bb 06-2015. Foggy golden-amber body with a pillow of meringue on top. Aroma is spicy honey, bread dough, resin and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is toffee, resin, orange, toast, grape must, mango and apple. Almost a pinch of roasted pecan on the finish. Medium body has medium carbonation and is pretty damn sessionable.

A good hoppy belgian. Really strong aroma. Pours golden with a descent head. Descent price.
