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.

Bottle at Savor. What makes this beer memorable to me is the aroma. this is full citrus hop explosion with floral characteristics. This really carried through in the flavor. Very bright and refreshing and enjoyable.

This is an enjoyable brew from revolution brewery. Tasty hop and fruit flavor. Not too much of anything. Great finish. Great brew.

Pours a clear medium amber with a white pancake head. Low carbonation and a pleasantly clean hop aroma. Very well balanced taste with prominent yeast and hops on the follow-through. Clean mouthfeel. Seems quite session-able!

Pours light amber with white head. Light body. Citrus, wheat, belgian yeast flavors, sweet fruits and hops. So easy to drink and great.

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.

A: Golden orange, slightly hazy almost clear, with a fizzy and foamy white head. S: Smells great. Fantastic combination of Belgian yeast - kind of funky, slightly musty, lemon and some coriander - and hops - sweet grapefruit, mango, tangerine. Almost creates a ’bubble-gum’ sweetness, which is a terrible way of describing it because that would be horrible, but very unique. T: Refreshing and crisp bitterness hit first with lemon and tarter-than-sweet grapefruit. Then a wash of Belgian spice, a tad bit of hay, and sweet tropical fruits. Finishes pretty dry P: Light-medium body, noticeable but not obnoxious carbonation. Very refreshing and smooth. O: Fantastic beer. So glad it’s in cans. Need to stock up.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of peach, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, banana, tangerine, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, light pine, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great citrus/tropical hop complexity with a moderate yeast and malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, mango, tangerine, banana, lemon zest, orange zest, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy tartness and spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, pineapple, citrus zest, banana, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian pale ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, pine and hops. The flavor is light grapefruit, fruit, Belgian yeast funk, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Reminds me a little of Duvel Triple Hop, the hops here are a little more bitter and drier than most American ales.

12 oz can. Pours hazy, dark yellow orange. Fruity and bready aroma. Spicy sweet taste. Caramel malts, yeast...like a spiced clementine orange.

MaltsterMash (31) - Kokomo, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Beautiful hoppy aroma yet still getting the Belgian wit yeast of the peppery/lemony smell. Appearance is slightly hazy with a yellow/golden color. Average/low head retention. Medium carbonation, heavier body than most pale ales. Hops linger but not overpowering. A nice balance between the complex yeast and the hops. A very enjoyable beer. Usually skeptical with a hop forward Belgian style ale. This was well made.
