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.

Pours clear amber with big frothy head. Aroma is dominated by hops-- I get citrus and pine. A hint of bready yeast is detectable, but definitely 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) place to the hoppy notes. On the palate the yeast and malt become more present and the hops to yeast profile balances out. Bitterness is there on the finish but very, very mild, which I enjoy. Malt also comes through on the finish. Mouthfeel is lively and bubbly. I like it.

Sampled at the brewpub on Milwaukee. It came in the glass a rich gold color. Nose of citrus, lots of it. MEdium plus body with a resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is a blast of citrus and there is some stone fruit. Long bitter finish. Really good beer..

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with light citrus, some resin and a bread backbone. The taste was of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of rind and a bread backbone. Nice.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2014
Both floral and citrusy on the palate, with balanced, flavorful grapefruit and nectarine citrus picking up subtle notes of toffee and crisp hops. through the long finish.

On tap at a seafood bar. Tastes like apple, spices, orange, hints of bread and a good yeast flavor. An interesting beer.

12 oz can. Pours hazy, dark yellow orange. Fruity and bready aroma. Spicy sweet taste. Caramel malts, yeast...like a spiced clementine orange.

12oz can via trade. Poured a rusty bronze body under an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma is citrus, lemons and tangerine, yeast, breads, tea. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy finish. Flavor is yeasty, bread grains, citrus rinds, tea leaves, touch old lemons. Nice stuff.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Can] Poured golden in color with a hint of a reddish hue to it. Spicy citrus hops and yeast notes in the aroma. Yeast and a little funk starts in the flavor. Peach, tart pear, honey, bread and dry lemon mix with hops that impart more of an orange flavor. Not a bad beer, but I am really not sure what to make of it. Seems a little muddled together in the end. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, pine and hops. The flavor is light grapefruit, fruit, Belgian yeast funk, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Reminds me a little of Duvel Triple Hop, the hops here are a little more bitter and drier than most American ales.
