4.21/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Packaged on 11/25/13. Best by 11/2014.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger off white head that slowly recedes into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy, earthy, and fairly spicy aroma with good hints of juicy hops and Belgian yeast. Upfront scent of earthy and floral hops with some hints of wet grass and pine. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, and pineapple. Big presence of Belgian yeast with hints of clove and pepper. Also some hints of green apple and banana. Pale malt with hints of biscuit, straw, and cracker. A very good Belgian IPA style aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a juicy, earthy, and yeasty Belgian IPA type taste with good notes of hops and Belgian yeast. Good mix of floral, earthy, and citrus hops upfront. Notes of grass and pine. Citrus fruit notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, mango, and pineapple. Also some fruit notes of banana and green apple. Belgian yeast with notes of clove and white pepper. Soft pale malt with notes of biscuit, straw, caramel, and cracker. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Creamy, spicy, and juicy with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid take on a Belgian style Pale Ale. Good mix of Belgian yeast and lush hop flavors.

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.
