Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch with millions of tiny suspended particles. Medium beige head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, citrus, and pine. Taste is about the same, medium sweet, light to medium bitter, woody. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Not bad, bit i suspect it was better fresh.

I love love love how they showcase the amarillo hops in this beer! Great balance this brewery is known for using a lot of hops so I was really happy that while very hoppy they didnít make something that made you feel like your chewing hops as you drink it.

Had it out of a bottle and poured a rich hazy amber color, witha slight head but mega lacing. Strong sweet aroma and the taste is very mild with a hop finish.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Tasted on tap at Ale Asylum. Cloudy amber color with a frothy head. Prominent hop taste and aroma with just the right amount of bitterness.

Smells hoppy but not as piney as cascade hops. Taste is hop forward yet well balanced. There isnít a bad bitter aftertaste, in fact some malt sweetness comes through. A solid apa.

Draft. @ Ale Asylum. Very good IPA. Loads of citrus with a decent caramel malt backbone. Iíll be drinking this one again.

The hop aroma and flavor of this brew are a great example of a well-hopped American-IPA. What I enjoy most about the brew is that Ale Asylum brews it with only one hop variety (Amarillo I believe) so one can really appreciate and understand what that hop has to offer. Hopalicious and Satisfaction Jacksin are the same way, but with different hops.

Good, straightforward IPA. Hops display a mostly citrusy profile. Solid malt backbone. I wouldnít say this isnít as aggressive as some more extreme IPAs, nor as well balanced as some of the more subtle classics, but still quite good.

12 ounce bottle. Thereís an earthy and unusual flavor character here that I really enjoyed. I pinned the taste along the likes of rosewater mixed with spiced hops, but others may call it something else. The flavors are crisp and refreshing without sacrificing boldness. The beer has a foggy amber appearance and a thin layer of white foam with some lacing. Medium bodied. It was reminiscent of a holiday-spice-ipa that would feel appropriate at the tail end of summer. I bet it goes well with cajun food. I look forward to trying this one again.
