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.

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.

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.

Light amber color with good carbonation out of the bomber. Crisp taste with mild spices and hops, very drinkable. Finish is smooth...it loses flavor as it warms up. Probably served a bit too warm. Wouldn?t mind trying this again in the summer.

22oz bottle via trade. Clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma of earthy yeast, caramel and floral hops. Flavor is bitter hops, malt, musty/spicy yeast esters, and some light phenols. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Recently re-tried this. It is yeast dominated but can pick up the hops mroe. Tried it again form the bottle and this is really awesome when it warms up.
