COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-style IPA has a mountain of Amarillo hops for explosive citrus aromas and aggressive bitterness with no metallic aftertaste. Ballistic is all natural and unfiltered for superior flavor and quality. It is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way.

jcr (2205) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Big aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, toasted bread, grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, just short of lively carbonation. Pine and resin take a back seat to the citrus qualities of the flavor which is nice. Solid.

Really great American IPA from Ale Asylum. These guys can’t do anything wrong but this one is one of my favorites. Lots of pine with a hint of bubblegum then a very clean finish.

Hazy amber beer with one finger of white head. Aroma is dense with pine, resin. and a whole lot of citrus and a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet malt with a bit of fruit and a crisp delicious finish. Awesome beer

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a darker golden color. Aroma of grass and pine, some citrus as well. Resin and grassy notes on the palate. Unfiltered gives it some substance in the mouthfeel. Has a little bite to it.
