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.

Cloudy pour as is to be expected with an unfiltered IPA. Fruity bitter hoppiness dances on the back of your tongue. Great choice from Ale Asylum!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dotty’s in Madison. Pours a clear coppery orange with a small off-white head. Aroma has sweet fruits, citrus and caramel. Taste is of mango, peach and resin with some caramel and lemon zest. Light to medium body and quite dry. Finishes dryly citrusy. Hmmm. As good and hoppy as Hopalicious is, I would have thought Ballistic would be hoppier than this ... and thought it was at other times.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch with millions of tiny suspended particles. Medium beige head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, citrus, and pine. Taste is about the same, medium sweet, light to medium bitter, woody. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Not bad, bit i suspect it was better fresh.
