COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-Style IPA has a mountain of Amarillo hops, giving it aggressive citrus aroma and bitterness on a firm bed of malt.

Very citrus aroma, more muted and balanced on the palette. Cloudy almost amber pour with thin soapy head and moderate lacing. Great standard IPA, nothing extreme or gimmicky. Ale Asylum gets it right again...

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 Pours nearly opaque in a way that says "I dare you." This is amazing. Smoky, woody, tangy, savory and satisfying, maybe even bolder and wilder than Ale Asylum’s double IPA. I can see myself drinking a lot of these this winter.

Even flat this beer was quite nice. Heavy citrus and very clean finish. I want more of this to try fresh with carbonation. Your standard quality cascade IPA here.

Bottle to snifter (thanks arkurzynski). Pours cloudy orange with a white tight soapy head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma is sweet malt and mild citrus hops with a noticeable orange peel. Taste is bitter grapefruit and orange rind with a malty backbone. Palate is medium and chalky with a gritty dry finish.

Bottle pours orange-amber with a white head. Aroma is orange, pineapple, bread, and light florals. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of peach and grass. Overall body is moderate with a moderately bitter finish.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Appearance a slight cloudy amber, light white head. Aroma of skunky hops, light citrus notes, pretty nice. Taste is definitely hoppy, strong bitterness, citrus comes out a little more, pretty good.

On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours dark, russet orange with small white head. Not much lacing to speak of. Straight-up citrus on the nose: oranges, marmalade, peach jam. Sugared fruit. More of a hop bite on the tongue, more sweet citrus, big caramel malt presence. Sticky, lasting mouthfeel. A touch on the sweet side, but quite good.

6oz sample. This is a solid ipa with an herbal earthy kick which screams west coast that has a caramel malt backdrop with some bread in the aroma. Could use a bit more citrus to srand out but is a stellar textbook example of the style.

Pours a caramel looking color, cloudy, with a trace of head and light lacing on the edge. Aroma was hoppy but not overpowering. Taste was hoppy, but missing something. Mouthfeel was OK. Just an average IPA for me!
