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.

12 ounce can. Thanks Jeremy! Pours a clear golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, oranges, yeast, malt, and grass. Nice balance. Tasty.

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....

HonkeyBra (3654) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a glowing orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of big pine and citrus hops intertwined with spicy belgian yeast. Flavor is sippy, lots of nice belgian yeast and bitter hop notes. Some citrus, song banana, and mild spice tones. It’s medium bodied, finishes long and bitter.

hayduke (3561) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 9, 2014
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..

CanIHave4Beers (3533) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is floral & fruity in a very hop forward kind of way. It’s pungent and bright with just a light alcohol character.

The flavor is enjoyably bitter & plenty hop forward in a very fruity kind of way, lots o’ pineapple, mango & citrus... the beer comes off as a touch sweet, but all around packs a pretty nice hop profile.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at Nano Brew Cleveland. Pours a clear orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, grainy malt, sweaty/stinky hops. Flavor of bready malt, grain, melon rind, sweet fruit, and bitter grassy hops in the finish. Tasty Belgian hoppy IPA. The hops could be slightly more prominent but that’s my only complaint 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

12oz can 1/11/14 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in Trappist Glass-Pours a light amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of hops and yeast. Taste of hops, yeast, and malt. This medium bodied brew is not bad as the Belgian aspect comes thru on the back end. Not my favorite for this style but still pretty tasty.
