COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cicada, a dry hopped Belgian style IPA, is brewed with a classic Belgian yeast strain and local wildflower honey, making it a truly indigenous ale. Subtle bubble gum notes from the yeast balance a smooth, caramel maltiness. Both citrus and earthy flavors round out this full-bodied, amber-colored beer.

Definitely an underrated beer. The taste is dry and bitter yet crisp and refreshing. I?d get it again.

On tap at the Pourhouse. Aroma is melon, caramel and floral. Pours deep amber with a small head and little carbonation. Taste had notes of peaches, honeydew, floral and earth. Not as sweet tasting as anticipated but definitely a neat flavor. Probably won’t seek this out.

750 purchased at Wegmans for $10. Pours a light ruby. Only about an inch and a half of head and little lacing. Aroma is dank. The honey is also present but without any hint of Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is moderate to slightly heavy. Taste is funky hops, sweet honey, mild Belgian spicyness and clove, pepper and moss. Overall very good. I hope to see this around again especially in six packs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice English style IPA. Pours Amber with a white head. The aroma has bread and some wood. The flavor has the malt sweetness up front and is balanced nicely with bitter hops. A quality brew for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. Deep amber gold color topped by a large rocky beige head. Fragrant toasted malt aroma with subtle honey and citrus hops notes. Bittersweet complex toasted malt flavor with dryish notes. Obvious notes of honey and citrus hops are nicely balanced by the tasty malt backbone. Their is an underlying spicy black pepper character throughout that lingers long into the aftertaste. Nice clinging Belgian lace.
