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.

Hoppy nose with floral / citrus elements, some sweet notes and bready malts. Clear golden yellow pour with moderate white foam. Medium body, moderate fizz. The balance of hops, malt, and Belgian yeast works well. The earthy notes balance out the sweetness. Finish is bitter. Sampled at Pittsburgh Big Pour 2014.

Outstanding appearance.. medium brown w/ slight red tint.. awesome, foamy head. Aroma is pretty tame.. spices, caramel, hops. Very creamy and smooth.. Alcohol non-existent.. get some caramel, banana, spices, hops on the taste. Not the greatest taste, but a very good beer.

Aromas of wet hops, minor dry lemon, belgian yeast, some veggie. light golden orange body and pale white foamy head. Flavor of fresh hops, crisp citrus, and an earthy undertone with some spice in the end. Crisp on the palate.

Solid. Pours amber with an off white head. Not much of an aroma, but smooth in mouth. Honey takes the edge off of the hop bite.
