One of the best belgian Pale Ales I have had. A strong yeast profile combined with robust hoppiness make this a unique take on the style.

Pours a hazy straw color into a pint glass. Good size bubbly white head with good retention and some light patches of lacing.

Aroma is inviting. The Belgian yeast stands out but there is some light fruit, mostly apples and a strong grassy and citrus hops presence as well.

Taste is more of the same. Big yeast presence and the citric hops are more pronounced. The other part of the aroma are there in the taste as well.

Mouthfeel is rich and tart. Very nice.

I will be drinking this one again!!!

Beer pours a light orange copper color. Clear but you can see little "floaties" in the beer. Finger of head. Looks like a Belgian Pale Ale in the glass. Smells of strong citrus and grapefruit peel. Definitely smells dry-hopped and lives up to the "Hop House" name. The taste is a solid Belgian pale, with a nice yeasty spice and a strong hop character. Tropical and citrus notes. The beer is very crisp and refreshing. Really great brew and a bit different from the rest of Ommegang's lineup. Definitely has the core of a Belgian ale with the American hoppyness and I really like it. It is exactly what it claims to be and I have to give props for that. I would classify this more as an IPA than pale ale however.
