COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A citrusy and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale hopped with Cascade, Citra, and whole Crystal hops for massive aromas and flavors! Fermented with our Belgian Wit yeast for an extra dose of complexity, this one is very drinkable and extremely aromatic.

Per Wil Turner, this is a second runnings beer from Institutionalized Barleywine’s runoff.

Poured from a 12-oz can, procured from Lizardville Rocky River. Clear light golden pour with a huge fluffy white head. Awesome aroma of citrus hops and mild yeast. Flavor is similar but the yeast comes through a little more and the citrus is slightly backed down. Lighter to medium palate. Solid.

JStax (3074) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent, lighter copper with a creamy white head of foam. Aroma is sweet with lots of citrus and sweet Belgian candi sugar. Taste is fruity sweet and a mild bitterness toward the finish.

500ml bottle shared by Brian. Medium bodied, very mellow and sessionable. Nice tropical tones, a mix of Simcoe or Summit or Nelson or something and Belgian yeast, really compement each other well and merge effortlessly. Very clean. Solid offering.

MrBunn (2461) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Can. The beer pours a clear gold with a medium to small head and aromas of slightly funky honey with a little grass. Flavor is decidedly sweet... lots of honey and a little funk and lots of spice. Mostly honey and spices. I’m not really in the mood for sugary beer right now and this is kind of cheesing me off... Not awful, but certainly not going to be a favorite.

Can to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells hoppy and doughy with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

Tmoney99 (10805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Can. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

DrSilverworm (6572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12oz can, canned 1/29/13. Can is labeled 6.8%. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head, little lace. Nice, grassy citrusy hop nose. Medium body. Smooth lighter carbonation, nice crisp character to it. More dry texture. Bitter taste, zesty sweet, with some belgian yeast flavors. Adds a kind of pear, citrus and spicy note. Nice orange citrus flavor, the Citra hop is noticeable here, but the belgian yeast adds a bit of sweetness that I’m not sure I dig. Wouldn’t be a belgian style pale ale though without it, though. Call it an American-Style BPA. Solid.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Very clear and dark golden. Minimal head. Some nice hops hit my nose first. Floral and citrus with honey. Those are tasted with with dry bitterness. Some yeast but just a bit. This is tasty.
