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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dotty’s in Madison. Pours a clear coppery orange with a small off-white head. Aroma has sweet fruits, citrus and caramel. Taste is of mango, peach and resin with some caramel and lemon zest. Light to medium body and quite dry. Finishes dryly citrusy. Hmmm. As good and hoppy as Hopalicious is, I would have thought Ballistic would be hoppier than this ... and thought it was at other times.

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 didn’t 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.
