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.

Poured a slight chill hazed gold body with a light fluffy bright white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dry grainy bread, lemons, grapefruit and dry tropical fruits. fuller bodied with lively carbonation. Flavor is the same as the aroma with some big yeast notes and citrus and tropical fruits along with grainy bread.

Growler pour into a globe glass. Beautiful honey amber orange color with a minimal white head. The nose is full of sweetness and clean hops with a little yeast complexity. Taste is definitely on par with the Belgian style pales with a unique cleanliness but, very tasty; close to sessionable. All around a solid Belgian pale with character from a quickly rising brewery in Chicago. Cheers!

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.

From tap. Clean gold orange in glass. Big nose of complex hops, some citrus zest and wet cellar. Big flavors in this offering, mostly sweet. Bubblegum and orange candies. Short bread. Fine, hoppy, bitterness lurking underneath. Very well put together. I am a sucker this kind of sweet and bitter combo.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Amber-gold, good amount of visible carbonation, head is one finger, velvety. Smell is spiced orange peel, warm yeast, bread. Smooth roasted malts, yeast, citrus, some candy. Refreshing.

Pours clear amber with big frothy head. Aroma is dominated by hops-- I get citrus and pine. A hint of bready yeast is detectable, but definitely 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) place to the hoppy notes. On the palate the yeast and malt become more present and the hops to yeast profile balances out. Bitterness is there on the finish but very, very mild, which I enjoy. Malt also comes through on the finish. Mouthfeel is lively and bubbly. I like it.

Can to glass. Pours a clear golden color with a thin off white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit, bubble gum, banana, Belgian yeast. Flavor is more typical of a Belgian ale, yeasty, mild banana bubblegum sweetness. Lighter in body. Easily drinkable. Tasty.

12oz can, typical Revolution beer, well balanced and much complexity in this brew as well. Taste of light caramel, malt, yeast flavor balanced out with hops flavor. Probably one of the better American made brews of this style.
