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.

chinchill (1900) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2013
22 oz bottle dated 2013 served in a Belgian snifter. A: deep orange-amber color with high clarity and a thin fragile head. Decent lacing. Aroma & Flavor: With hops that make this citrusy and slightly grassy, and some Belgian yeast adding a touchs of nuttiness and funk, this has very good complexity in both aroma and flavor. Also has notes of tropical fruits. Mildly bitter. I enjoyed the aroma a bit more than the flavor, largely owing to the relatively disappointing aftertaste. Feel: Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation. O: a well-done and and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale. Very drinkable and rather aromatic for style.

superspak (2636) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of peach, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, banana, tangerine, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, light pine, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great citrus/tropical hop complexity with a moderate yeast and malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, mango, tangerine, banana, lemon zest, orange zest, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy tartness and spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, pineapple, citrus zest, banana, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian pale ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

ADesenberg (597) - Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Can: pours clear, light copper with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is citrus, pine and the underlying "Belgian yeast" flavor. Nice. Doesn't smack you in the face with either style, just meanders from a nice american pale to a Belgian pale.

jaymobrown (1672) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Actually, a not bad Revolution beer. Light caramel, malt, yeast flavor balanced out generously with some hops, sugar, candy and lemon flavor. A nice balance to make this not just a light watered down version of a beer but something that has a bit of substance.

tmoreau (2445) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served with a clear, golden color, off white, creamy head foam that diminished to a thin but persistent ring, and showed some light streaks & spots of lacing. The nose presented light yeast & spiciness, honey sweetness & malt, and some orangy citrus. The flavor again was sweet, then a combination of tart fruitiness, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium bodied. A decent Wit/Pale.

malrubius (1726) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle from Red Wine & Brew Chesterland. Golden orange with flat head and lace. Orangy hops and tangy Belgian yeast aroma. Medium sweet orangy tang with mildly bitter but very dry finish. Surprisingly dry finish for a somewhat sweet beer. A tiny bit medicinal and or astringent, but still pretty good. Medium body.
