Location: Draft at Blue Frog’s Local 22, 6/23/14
Aroma: The aroma has some fruity hops and some Belgian yeast
Appearance: This one has an orange pour, an off-white head, and plenty of lace
Flavor: This one has a pretty hoppy flavor, good balancing spice, and a medium-plus hop bitterness
Palate: It has a clean, easy drinking mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
I found this to be a pretty nice, enjoyable beer. As a first beer from Ale Asylum, I’m pretty impressed. I’ll happily try more from them.

Beautiful burnt orange pour into Duvel tulip glass. Yeasty aroma with a bit of citrus and fruit. I get a sweet passion fruit in the flavor along with some nice citrusy hops. A nice balance between the belgian esters and hops. Sticky and sweet on the palate.

Pour a light amber with a finger sized off-white head. Nose is of hops. Very creamy and velvety mouthfeel. Taste is hop forward but with a lingering sweetness of malt and fruit. Pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches and dill pickles.

From 12oz bottle. Pours a amber reddish brown with a white head. Aroma of earthy floral hops. Tastes of light sweetness and light bitterness. A light fizzy medium body with a slight bitterness that finishes with a slight creaminess.Overall a pretty good effort and fairly smooth for this high of abv. Good effort for a belgium ipa style.

Pours a clear light orange with about a finger of off-white, slowly dissipating head. Brown sugar and lemon in the nose. Taste of caramel and lemongrass, with a lot of zest that fades into a gentle hop bitterness. This is one of the more interesting, complex IPAs I’ve had in a while.

Bottle thanks to Chris. Cloudy bright amber with medium off white head. Lots of citrus aroma and flavor. Some banana and a little clove at the finish. Excellently balanced.

Nice amber color to this Belgian style IPA. Lots of citrus on the nose. Grapefruit and lemon, with a bit of resin and floral hop notes. Unfiltered for a nice mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served: 12 oz bottle
Look: pours a dark amber color, slight gaze to it. White head that turns thick after a while
Smell: some sour notes like a Belgian IPA. Definite citrus flavors. Lemons. Floral aromas as well.
Taste: definite sour taste.
Feel: bitter is on the end of the taste. Light feel, light carbonation.
Overall: might be a good beer for summer. Kind if refreshing, but not a big fan of the sour notes. Definitely a Belgian IPA with the sour notes to it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 On tap poured into a shaker. A dry, resin and grapefruit aroma start, and are then complimented by a floral note and some bubblegum character. The beer is a clear amber-caramel color with a sudsy white head that has good retention and leaves a sparse, scattered lace. It’s well balanced between moderate sweetness and bitterness with a good amount of soft, foamy carbonation. The medium-full body is somewhere between oily and creamy in texture with very mellow, well blended flavors. It starts with a juicy malt character then finishes with a dry, chalky, citrus rind finish. The aftertaste is mellow and lingers with tastes of toasted bread and caramel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
color is murky amber orange with a medium off white head. persistent lacing. aroma is grapefruit. Taste is bright and hoppy. Some citrus notes for sure. Hoppy bitterness fades in slowly. A little bit of the bitterness overstays its welcome in the back of the throat. Not bad, but not the best IPA I’ve had.
