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.

Pour is bright amber orange with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of resin hop up front, light yeast notes with a fair bit of spice and tang. A good bit of sweet juicy citrus and faint grassy hop in the back. Taste is a bit sweet, light tangy yeast with a hint of spice, loads of pine and resin with a touch of citrus and some grassy bitterness through the finish but light. Body is syrupy and full, softer carbonation.

Couple of cans crushed with Honkeybra. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Very estery, spicy, citrusy aroma. Flavor is more Belgian style esters and citrus. Seems like a wit on roids. But that’s cool.

Pours from the can a deep orange, with a light haze and a tall, dense off-white head. Aroma has a strong orange citrus nose with a light grassy kick and a sweet malt backbone with some light yeasty esters. Flavor starts off with a strong, bitter orange peel flavor with some some light grassy hops notes. Later a sweet malty, light yeast ester flavor creeps in with a slightly watered down hops finish. Body is light with low amounts of carbonation but enough to maintain the head. Overall the nose on this brew is fantastic. The flavor gets a lot better as it warms. Well balanced, flavorful and a perfect summer time brew.

12 oz can purchased at Lalo’s Mexican Restaurant located in the Midway airport main terminal boulevard food court in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a clear golden copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh grass, floral hops along with a spice Belgian yeast. The taste is the nose, nice clean mix of the hops and the Belgian yeast notes. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. Nice, happy to find this at Midway (this place also had Revolution Anti-Hero IPA).

Pours a golden orange with a white head and nice aroma of fruits, citrus, and peach. Taste is well balanced, nice hoppy, citrus, peach notes with malt, caramel, and light spice leading to a dry, fruity finish. Very drinkable, tasty pale ale

Can. Pours a golden, burnt orange color with a loose white head. Nose is absolutely enchanting with deep citrus and a predominance of peaches and mangoes. Taste is deep citrus and full of nothing but delicious flavor ( can you tell I like it ) . Finishes on sweet citrus notes, dry and a true winner. Quyaff Score 9 / 10

Can (2013 assumedly) in a trade with theAlum, drunk on 2/16/14
Slightly hazy orange-amber beer is topped by a small white head that recedes to cover.
TROPICAL FRUITS. Yes, this is nice. Pineapple, mango, kiwi, that sort of thing. Lush, green hops and citric notes follow up the tropical fruit notes and a lightly sweet crystal malt note provides balance. Medium high to high strength of aroma, no flaws and just pure, aromatic hoppiness without all the acidity.
Hop bitterness, incredibly juicy fruit hop flavor and almost the perfect amount of pale malt sweetness collide on the palate. Soft texture and light but engaging carbonation keeps it drinkable, though it does get too sweet by the end of the glass. Bubble gum and light mango esters build on the finish and it gets a bit wit beerish but the hops are done so well they could almost put arsenic in this stuff and it wouldnt matter. Need to try more from these guys....
