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.

ARH (776) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. Strong notes of banana and spice kick it off, while there’s still a huge fluffy head. Eventually bread, some candy sugar, some floral notes, and some spice (particularly pepper and clove) join into the mix as well. The big, fluffy, slightly off-white head sits atop a mostly clear, effervescent gold-orange body. A nice layer of head remains atop the drink throughout, and it leaves an abundant lacing down the glass. The taste is mostly sweet (medium / medium-high levels) but with a nice bitter complement underpinning it (medium levels). The medium / medium-full body is creamy and smooth going down aided by a soft, mellow carbonation in moderate amounts. The mouth feel is initially toasty bread with some citrus (lemon and orange), and a floral / herb taste. Fleshy stone fruit (peaches / apricots) start to come out near mid-bottle as well as some of the fuller caramel malt body. It finishes with toasty caramel flavor accompanied by a clean resin and grassy quality; fairly crisp, too.

12 oz can, Kroger Bridge St. Light golden color; pretty hazy; foamy white head becomes a large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma bready, orange, banana, spices. I would say the flavor leans more toward a Belgian than a pale ale, which isn’t necessarily a problem. This one is the good parts of a pale ale and a Belgian combined, without the lousy wheat characteristics of all the spring wits that are coming out right now. Good beer for the style. What a great brewery.

Pours a slight cloudy copper with a 1 finger egg shell white head with sticky lacing. Beautiful nose. Orange, citrus, yeast, bread, spice all make themselves appearant. Smooth mouthfeel with citrus and spice, yeasty esters, dry finish. Way easy drinker. Going to have to think about getting stock in Revolution Brewing as they have been putting out some really great, solid beers.

On tap. Couldn't believe this was at just under a 3.5 rating. Awesome aroma, great hoppy flavor, and poured a beautiful, clear, deep copper. One of the best pale ales I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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).
