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

Outstanding IPA from Ale Asylum. all components are suped up but the bitterness and crispness stay true to the basic IPA style. Personally I don’t mind when an IPA gets sweet in order to match a big hop content and beef up the ABV, but Ballistic IPA manages to do that while keeping that crisp bitterness- You don’t see that too often- nice job

arminjewell (8619) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Pours orange with white head, aroma is huge citrus and piny hops. Taste up front is indicative of hop bursting, with a huge citrus taste leading into a bit of sweet malt and finishes a bit sweet and a bit bitter. Really good tastes, but lacks in bitterness and complexity at the end.

Pours a clear copper color with a thick white head, good bubbles. Definite hop aroma, citrusy, where’s the malt? Yummy hop flavor. Medium body, dry finish, definite hop bitterness. I did not know this ale had amarillo hops, I enjoy these hops, so that is why I like this IPA. Wow, nicely done. For the style, maybe this ranks low, but if you are a hop head, this one is for you.

Ungstrup (30390) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, hops, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malt combined with notes of over ripe fruits, leading to a dry, alcoholic, and bitter hoppy finish. Thanks CaptainCougar for coming to Denmark and sharing this.
