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

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
