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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, darker gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of fruity hops and yeast. Crisp citruses, some florals, light grass, tropical fruits, a few yeasty esters, and some dry herbal notes. Pale malt backing with some doughy yeast and a touch of spice. Flavor is similar. Tropical fruits, citrus, and a light Belgian yeast note up front. Dry grass, florals, and a pale malt backing come in during the middle with some doughy yeast and herbal hops showing up at the end. Finishes dry and clean with a light bitterness. Nice dry citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, light Belgian yeast balance in a medium length aftertaste. Light body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice pale ale. Crisp and fruity hops with nice dryness balanced well with a light pale malt backing and light Belgian yeast influence. Very enjoyable beer.

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.

Light amber color with good carbonation out of the bomber. Crisp taste with mild spices and hops, very drinkable. Finish is smooth...it loses flavor as it warms up. Probably served a bit too warm. Wouldn?t mind trying this again in the summer.

Tmoney99 (10412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Can. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent, lighter copper with a creamy white head of foam. Aroma is sweet with lots of citrus and sweet Belgian candi sugar. Taste is fruity sweet and a mild bitterness toward the finish.

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.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that settles into a lasting foamy ring. Big, fruity nose; floral notes, citrus, and tropical fruits. Later, the hops shift to a more oily, herbal style. Interesting transition. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Like a Belgian IPA.

malrubius (1639) - Willowick, Ohio, 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.
