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 Barleywines runoff.

12 oz. can, in trade with treebute. Pours a nice caramel color with a big, frothy, beige head. The aroma is bitter oranges, butterscotch, sweet herbs, and lime. Citrusy sweetness, with a nice, mellow, but assertive, bitterness. Light, pleasant, sweet aftertaste. Medium body, fizzy, a little chewy, and clean. Overall, this is an excellent, subtly complex, and quaffable beer.

12oz can courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Orange pour with white head. Aroma is nice citrus, peach and pine. Tastes are also fruity with pepper and belgian yeast. Pretty nice. Will have to try again.

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!

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.

Bottle from pantanap...thanks Kan! - Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Nose is dank, oniony hops, citrus, light pine, and grass. Real pungent, and only a hint of sweet malt peeks through. Taste still has the oniony, garlicy, piney hops, but a lightly spicy sweet bread malt base underneath. Real smooth velvety mouthfeel, gentle carbonation, and a fairly hefty body. Good stuff.

Bomber. Pours a light golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely fruity and rich belgian yeast spiciness. strong floral and spice hop note, citric. Flavor bursts with citric and belgian spicy notes, simple but very drinkable and smooth, refreshing and citric. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Very good

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Recently re-tried this. It is yeast dominated but can pick up the hops mroe. Tried it again form the bottle and this is really awesome when it warms up.
