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 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).

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.

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)

Can from Binny’s downtown. Clear copper color with a white head. Smells like a sweet, perfumey IPA. Yes I can see where this has some Belgian notes to it. Really a pretty tasty ale overall.

can. from Frank I think. nose full of cat piss and uninviting fruit. slowly rotting fruit with sugar. thank god it tastes much better and by that I mean it is actually drinkable. wow, I now officially am writing to the UN to prohibit export of US hops to Belgain yeast.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 12/17/2013: Revolution A Little Crazy... Well, this beer tastes exactly like the style it?s labeled to be, a Belgian Pale Ale. At first sip, the Belgian yeast spice, caramel/fruitcake malt, and fleshy fruits come through and then the citrusy, melon, and FLORAL hops layer in on top. There is a suggestion of tropical fruits as well and the biterness level is moderate which is right on for the style. This beer is on point and quite easy to quaff, but nothing special and sadly, easily forgettable. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Score = 3.2. Thanks Paul! UPDATE 4/23/2015... Better out of the can. Score = 3.4.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with light citrus, some resin and a bread backbone. The taste was of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of rind and a bread backbone. Nice.

Draft at Belgian Fest. Glad I had a chance to finally try this one. Nose is huge hops, really fresh and citrusy, tropical fruit from the Citra. Light Belgian yeast, tart note. Some noted pepper notes and grain. On tasting, medium-high bitterness, clean and deep. Nice malt balance and fruity hops. Tropical qualities are really nice. Great stuff.

Not sure what the deal is on this one... Had this via growler when it was originally released.. Aroma was bright with tropical fruit forwardness, somewhat dank and extremely bright... Flavor on the other hand didn’t contribute as much. Semi-sweet crystal malt it seems with a semi-fresh citrus hop sensation that really didn’t live up to its nose. Just shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Pretty drinkable overall with a nose that quite I overcame the flavor. Def needs to be consumed fresh.

on tap @ Taste of Belgium / Cincinnati OH --- Clear caramel amber, thick rim head, bands of lace. Taste is malt and a little bitter coriander, perhaps a little cloves. Citrus hops jump in in the palate, but never quite overcome the openers. Interesting, big flavor, but doesn’t really pair with anything. One at a time is more than enough (like a rich dessert).
