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.

Single can from Binny’s. Nice tropical fruit smell from pouring it into the glass. Closer in, I can find more of those traditionally piney northwestern hops. A clear gold color in the glass, and it pours with a finger of spongy foam. Malt is pretty light against the overwhelming force of this hoppy little cane toad. Hop bitterness almost pierces my tongue, but is till relaxing and almost indulgent. Definitely a great beer you’d never expect to find in a can.

Aroma: Floral, pine and resin aromas, but distant. Appearance: Clear orange with frothy tan head. Taste: Light sweetness with hints of sourness. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, minimal finish. Overall: A bit faint on taste, and pretty watery, but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden, light white head. Fruity citrus, floral nose. Some lighter resin. Decently bitter, some cereal, bready sweetness in the body. Lighter body, watery, quite effervescent. Medium finish. Quite nice.

12oz can pours clear dark amber red with a finger of head. Nose is malty sweet fruit, cherry and light earthy citrus coupled with subtle belgian grainy yeast spice. Taste is sweet, medium bodied, a touch slick, malt driven with minimal hop character, subtle orangey spice, finishes with some loght toasty bread grain and subdued yeast spice, little bit of stickyness, round sweet malt fruit.

Picked up a 12 oz can at Fresh Thyme market in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pours a clear honey color with a small, soapy head that dissipates quickly. I’d recommend a tulip glass for this one...I drank it from a very wide-mouthed tumbler, and the aromas seemed so faint, not nearly as nice as the aromas coming from the can. But coming from the smaller opening of the can was a very nice concentrated hop scent, very earthy and grassy. Flavors are crisp and bright—a light, fruity sweetness with a bit of yeasty barnyard funk underneath. Carbonation feels somewhat fine, but lively. Overall, a nice beer, and pretty interesting flavors.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after work with only two days left until vacation! Appearance is a slightly clearish amber with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with light yeast notes and a light hop profile, delicate but nicely done. Taste is nice, balanced well, crisp but also lightly bitter. Well done.

Can. Hoppy, a little cheesy a rock & roll, cuddly on the bus back from Briess. Not bad, but not a favorite.

Pours a nice copper brown. Nose and taste are a nice blend of Cascade, Citra and Crystal. Great nose, great taste, highly crushable and addictive! Great beer

Really enjoyable for a Belgian Ale. Pours bright golden with a full white head. Nose is plenty of citrus and crisp with a light Belgian yeast esters. Really clean and floral flavor with bright citrus hop flavors all around.

A very nice combination of the Belgian yeast with a good amount of hops. Aroma is very bright with a lot of citrus/ orange present. A good clean, bright IPA, with a little twang from the Belgian yeast. It may not be for everyone if you are looking for more of a malt character, but I love it!
