COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-style IPA has a mountain of Amarillo hops for explosive citrus aromas and aggressive bitterness with no metallic aftertaste. Ballistic is all natural and unfiltered for superior flavor and quality. It is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 While on my visit to Minnesota and Wisconsin, my in-laws drove my wife and I to Madison WI to visit grandpa Harry. We stopped off at a Piggly Wiggly. .. and their beer selection was stellar. I had to get something local, so I chose this IPA. It?s delicious. Pours a copper color, with a nice citrus melon scent. It’s also sweet with resin tones, yet dry and crisp at the end. Very good. Cheer!

Bottle. Hazy amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Big aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, toasted bread, grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, just short of lively carbonation. Pine and resin take a back seat to the citrus qualities of the flavor which is nice. Solid.

Really great American IPA from Ale Asylum. These guys can’t do anything wrong but this one is one of my favorites. Lots of pine with a hint of bubblegum then a very clean finish.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Hazy amber beer with one finger of white head. Aroma is dense with pine, resin. and a whole lot of citrus and a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet malt with a bit of fruit and a crisp delicious finish. Awesome beer

Bottled. Citrus aromas, aggressive bitterness. This beer is perfect to drink with a meat and cheese charcuterie board.

TXBadger (1250) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a darker golden color. Aroma of grass and pine, some citrus as well. Resin and grassy notes on the palate. Unfiltered gives it some substance in the mouthfeel. Has a little bite to it.

Great easy drinking ipa. Not as good as the Satisfaction Jackson though. Still, a must drink

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
This one poured a darker orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of herbal and green hops, and caramel. Flavor was bitter hops, not much hop flavor and matly sweetness. Either not too great, or old.

backdaft (201) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep copper color with a big off white head. Aromas (and taste) is dominated by sweet caramel malt. Lacking of citrus or pine. Too malty for me.
