Smells hoppy but not as piney as cascade hops. Taste is hop forward yet well balanced. There isn’t 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. I’ll 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 wouldn’t say this isn’t 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. There’s 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.

Pours medium amber that leans more towards a green color and cloudier than the Hopalicious. It's an okay IPA but the flavors are muddled.

I have had both on tap and out of the bottle, but I prefer the tap. This had a good balance of malt and hop, which is a plus for me. I like the almost citrus notes that this one has. Very drinkable.

Thick looking, cloudy, murky burnt orange. Balanced citrus sweetness and bitterness. Wet finish. Pleasant aftertaste

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.
