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.

Very enjoyable if simple beer. Bomber from the brewery. Not a lot of complexity, but the flavors do come through and there is a little burst of citrus. Pours a nice golden color with a small head. Some lacing. Aroma is of fresh floral and citrus. Not really very hoppy. Some cereal. Taste is very similar to the aroma. Some floral and cereal with very moderate hopping and a little burst of citrus on the tongue. A good beer that is very drinkable. I enjoyed it.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 13, 2012
22oz bottle via trade. Clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma of earthy yeast, caramel and floral hops. Flavor is bitter hops, malt, musty/spicy yeast esters, and some light phenols. Medium body with average carbonation. Decent beer.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12oz can, canned 1/29/13. Can is labeled 6.8%. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head, little lace. Nice, grassy citrusy hop nose. Medium body. Smooth lighter carbonation, nice crisp character to it. More dry texture. Bitter taste, zesty sweet, with some belgian yeast flavors. Adds a kind of pear, citrus and spicy note. Nice orange citrus flavor, the Citra hop is noticeable here, but the belgian yeast adds a bit of sweetness that I’m not sure I dig. Wouldn’t be a belgian style pale ale though without it, though. Call it an American-Style BPA. Solid.

Tap at plank Rd tavern.. Good hoppy nose is ruined by Belgian yeast, while not a flaw in the beer I think with a clean fermenting yeast you’d have a better beer or maybe just double fist

HighWine (946) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap flight at the brewery. Light yellow gold pour. Perfume hop fragrance. Taste is very pleasant. Belgian yeast with bright, fruity hops. It’s great...great...great...and then the finish is a little weak. Thin bodied and flat on the end, other than that, quite good

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
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.

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).
