Beautiful hazed orange apricot appearance glowing in my glass clouded off white head forming thick looks like a dimpled biscuit sitting afloat on the body of this beer. Belgian style lacing all day, looks great and a name like Hop House from Ommegang I was sold off the bat. Aroma has citric earthy herbal hops, bitterness is almost caught by your nares...expressive bready/biscuit malts to complement not much in the way of perceived sweetness seems like a beautifully constructed Belgian pale ale. Just a touch of citrus/mango juicy hop character going on here. Flavors combine nicely herbaceous herbal hops, bitter citrus peel, lemony notes with a spicy black pepper blast the yeast spiciness kicks hard I don't know how to keep the yeast out of this glass it seems like part of the dry-hopped BPA experience. Mouthfeel has smooth effervescent carbonation light to medium bodied a touch of slick hop oils all very enjoyable along with that bone dry finish. Overall I can't get enough of a well crafted easy drinking complex ale with moderate alcohol, and high flavor this will get better and better as it warms up outside.

12 oz bottle.
Poured with medium body and carbonation.
Unmistakeable Belgian character from the yeast blended with a higher hop load than a typical Belgian IPA but lower than an American IPA. Mildly bitter. Some coffee sneaks in the in the lingering aftertaste.

an excellent example of a belgian pale, but i hope the rumors arent true that this is replacing bpa. this is less distinct to me, not as yeasty and farmy, more in line with convention, although i love the grassy and bitter complex of the hops here. more body too i think than bpa, although the two beers are cut from the same cloth. a bit more of a copper color as well, equally pronounced white head with ring lacing. more grassy than floral, but summery in nature on the nose, some wheat malt may be in here as well. im missing yeasty haze, and although this beer is dry and has a very recognizable belgian yeast character to the finish, it simply doesnt stand out the way fresh bpa always has for me. i know the two beers are minimally different, but i prefer the original.
