COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first dry hopped Belgian-style IPA, we brew Cicada 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, complex beer. Our buzzworthy brew will leave quite the impression on you, just like its namesake, which engulfs the mid Atlantic region every 17 years. 17°

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.

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

Burns burnt Orange with a medium off white head. Aroma is earthy, honey, citrus and yeast. Taste is bitter with sweetness coming through in the finish. Alcohol is very noticeable at first but mellows considerably as it warms. Medium bodied with some stickiness.

Pours copper brown with light head and heavy lacing. Citrus and honey flavors. Hops are well balanced and do not overpower the yeast. A very interesting take on a Belgian Ale.

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
