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.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper color with a big off white head. Aromas (and taste) is dominated by sweet caramel malt. Lacking of citrus or pine. Too malty for me.

Indra (2605) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 20, 2014
12oz. bottle. Unknown age, the bottle says Best Enjoyed By, then has a blank white space. Floral, fruity and lightly sweet aroma, with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon and faint honey, some mild toast, vanilla and pine as well. Hazy burnt orange in color with a lasting, sticky, creamy head and lacing to match. Flavor profile is nicely hopped, plenty of juicy citrus present throughout, along with suggestions of tropical fruit, grass, lightly pale malt toast and caramel sweetness, and finishing with a moderately bitter hop punch. Smoothly effervescent and refreshing on the palate with very fine carbonation and a medium body. This is a nice IPA.

Tap. Amber pour with off white head. Smells of hops, toffee and caramel. Tastes of hops and toasted malts but not much bitterness from the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark copper, lots of caramel on the nose, too much head to reason with. Didn’t get much of an IPA, citrus or anything from this. Tasted like an amber or something, tons of caramel.

mandylee (48) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Cloudy pour as is to be expected with an unfiltered IPA. Fruity bitter hoppiness dances on the back of your tongue. Great choice from Ale Asylum!
