Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World on 11/14/15. Served cool (not cold) in a Duvel tulip.

Look: hazy honey amber. Thick white head, decent lacing.

Smell: Soft malt, lemon zest, clove like yeast.

Taste: dry husks of grain

Feel: chewy, thick

Overall: another fine ale by Ommegang

hazy pour, fluffy head of foam, great retention and lacing. lots of sediment hanging out towards the bottom of my glass.

nose is yeasty with floral notes. super drinkable and crisp - nice balance between hoppy flavors and malt backbone. no single taste is overwhelming, but the flavors blend together to create a pleasant and refreshing flavor. would definitely buy this beer again!

Poured into pint glass, big creamy head that stayed until the beer was done
L- was very hazy as result of the yeast but i really liked the peachy color
S- although its called hop house the aroma was more yeasty
T- I really enjoyed the taste as it is a belgian ale, which had an orangey flavor with the noticeable yeast and yet the subtle notes of the dry hops really rounded out this great beer
F- the feel was creamy, not so carbonated but definitely not flat
Overall very good offering from Ommegang this is the first time i've had on of their beer but i'll be back after this one

Best by June 2016. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy chunky eggshell white head that doesn't fall leaving great retention and sticky lacing. Some sediment/floaties. The aromas are very floral. Fresh flowers. Some grass. Yeast is there, but allows the hop aromas to be present. Some pine in the mix as well. The flavors are very earthy. Strong sharp bitterness with a solid malt backbone. Fresh pine needles. More fresh grass. Some orange and grapefruit notes. The hops shine. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is great. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's creamy too. Very sharp and crisp.

This is a nice Belgian pale ale. They allow the hops to shine. It's rare to see Ommegang work with hops, but they weren't shy with them in this case. Good stuff.
