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.

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.

Can from a sixer purchased at Aficionado’s. Clear gold pour with a huge white head. Malty nose with big pepper notes along with Belgian esters and grassy hops. Malty flavor with banana and clove accents and some nice pepperiness before a piney hop finish. Solid Belgian IPA.

500ml bottle shared by Brian. Medium bodied, very mellow and sessionable. Nice tropical tones, a mix of Simcoe or Summit or Nelson or something and Belgian yeast, really compement each other well and merge effortlessly. Very clean. Solid offering.

Smells like an ipa, grapefruit rind olfactory., perhaps a lot like mild b/o. Taste is at first I think a little too hoppy then it evolves into this backbone of a lemon unsweetened fruit thing. yes, each swig the same; an aroma of mild b/o then a palate finish of a lemony furniture polish thing. Finish is APA. Probably not a belgdy if you are looking for this style, yes, more like an apa - but so what, its beer. Yep, no way is this anything like an old country belgian. Ita a wannah beeeeee.

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.

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....

wlajwl (3769) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 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.

Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma of fruity hops, zesty lemon and citrus. Taste of grassy hops, lemon, citrus and malts. Finish is fruity and slightly yeasty. Quite fruity Belgian ale.
