Another home run from the boys in Madison. Such a great balance, although aggresivly hopped for an amber it still has enough malt backbone to really shine. Great beer and well made.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Just had this beer for the first time out of a bottle. Of course I poured the beer into a glass. :0 Pours a slightly hazy amber/copper color with a thin off-white head on top. Decent retention, and it leaves some sticky lace in its wake. Smells very hoppy, of the citrus variety. Also some candied malts and brown sugar come through as well. Every time I sip this, I’m getting bombarded with nice aroma. This beer is actually much more malty than I expected. I was expecting a wave of bittering hops, but instead what’s there is a simple delicious mild hop profile, with a toasted caramel-flavor on the finish. This is really well-balanced and well-made beer. I will buy more of this beer in a blink of an eye. It toook me awhile to nail downa beer that reminded me of this beer. Summits Pale Ale is very simalur but the Ambergeddon is much better.

Pours a nice golden medium amber color. Had about a 1/2 finger head which disipated in about 2 minutes. Aroma had malts up front with some mild pine hops after. Tasted a sweet malt very smooth and well balanced. Thought this would have more hop to it but very nice and smooth, especially when it hits about 50 degrees, about 5 minutes after pulling it out of the 35 degree fridge. Smooth light to medium mouthfeel.

Bottle. Dark amber color with light tan head and light lacing. Significant hops aroma with some sweetness. Hops in the forefront with medium bitterness, some malt flavor comes through before fading to the floral hops. Medium body, and hoppy finish.

On-tap at Ale Asylum. Pours an excellent orange and amber color with a big white head that left great lacing and retained very well. Smell is full of pungent grapefruit and citrus hops. The beer was poured cold into a regular pint glass, not exactly the best for accenting aromas, but it still had plenty of aroma coming right to me. Taste has a good malt background, even a touch of biscuit in there while still having the hops be the leaders. It was nice to be able to have a malt background and still be pummeled with hops, one of the hoppier beers I’ve had as of late. Higher than medium bodied with medium carbonation levels, just seemed to fit very well with this one. Very drinkable, I could drink this by the pitcher, and perhaps I’ll just have to do that next time. Excellent beer here, this is worth seeking out.

Ale Asylum Ambergeddon is a clear, amber (almost copper) ale with a thin, splotchy off-white head with a bunch of oily bubbles on it. It leaves nice lacing on the glass. There’s a lot of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. It has a huge, fresh hoppy aroma. It’s piny and resiny with a hint of tangerine. The malt smells biscuity and a hint sweet. It smells like an IPA. It’s medium bodied and incredibly smooth with a very clean finish. I taste a lot of hops (simcoe?). The caramelly malt flavor comes in at the finish. This is very good. It really seems like an IPA.

Pours a gorgeous reddish hued amber with a beige creamy head that floats on top like a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. A bit of lacing completes the work of art. Caramel and fruit lightly entice the nose. The body is not as heavy as expected, and the massive supply of hops don’t show until the swallow. The aftertaste of hops is strong, wonderful, and possibly eternal. I’m still tasting them an hour after I drank the bottle. Very nice!!!

Very good hop aroma.... smells more like an ipa than an amber. Pours a cloudy copper color with a nice tan head. Good lacing on the glass. Very well hopped and very drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy dark amber. Smell of hops, malt, grapefruit, alcohol, pine, caramel, spice and a hints of flowers. Taste of hops, tons of hops, malt, bread, caramel, gram cracker, pine, orange zest, citrus, rye and spice. This shouldn’t be called an amber ale, but a pale ale or IPA. I have to drive to Madison to get more of this.
