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.

This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body semi-transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly bitter mild citrus mild hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

IslandHaole (1299) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2017
Clear medium golden color. Interesting aroma, has some sourish notes as well as a touch of wit, with banana & cloves. An odd mesh of flavors, sweet malts up front, followed by the tangy wit flavor with a crisp bitter follow. Too busy for me, a beer that isn’t sure what style it is, tries to be a few at once and doesn’t quite nail any of them.

Single 12floz can (COD 12.13.2017, $1.50/unit), tulip glass. This is a great looking Belgian pale ale; deep golden haze and a sticky frothy white head. Old World yeast and New World hops compose a floral, soft citrus, and citrus zest aroma. Palate presents greats balance, and feels lighter than its 6.8% ABV. A very good all purpose beer with mild funk, pummelo, toasted bread flavors.

jsmerig (1667) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours a crystal clear yellow with a white foamy head. Great lacing left on the small 5oz glass. Tasted at Yard House outside of Chicago Aroma is light and fruity with a sweet passion fruit note. Taste is lightly sweet with a mango note to it. Being a wheat beer, it doesn’t come with tremendous hoppiness. Instead its nicely offset. Smooth and refreshing - reminds me of Pyramid Apricot Wheat

thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2017
Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is like candied peaches. All candi sugar and peaches. Flavor is fruity with more peach and some elderflower herbal-ness. A little dash of coriander or orange peel would really make this great. It is fine as it is though, plenty fruity and refreshing.

hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Canned 01/16/17. The appearance is a medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminished, transparent gold body, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, juicy, spicy, yeast, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, yeast, lightly sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is light-moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very good tasting beer for its style. It has a very good hoppy taste to it that leaves me interested in drinking this again. It is well brewed and I look forward to rating more of their beers.

Jow (4087) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Can from City Hops. Deep hazed golden one finger head. Nose is tropical fruit and Belgian yeast. Tastes of bubblegum, peach, banana, yeasty, and cloves. Creamy palate easy drinking. Semi sweet.

3.6
574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2017
This is a Belgian IPA. Pours a hazy golden with a taller rocky eggshell foam that leaves a stringy collar of lace. Nose involves spicy yeast and citrus, florals (lilac), musty cobweb, passion fruit, and lightly toasted malt. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, oily, drying leafiness, active, vaguely juicy, with a drying bitter hop and yeasty finish. It’s not bad, but it’s too hoppy. I would have liked to see more "Belgian Ale" and less "IPA" here.
