ilikebeer2 made a beer trip and came back with lots of good stuff and shared it with a bunch of C-U Beer Club buddies. Thanks, Scott. Pours out a vivid amber with a medium frothy white head. The aroma was of serious grapefruit hoppiness, toasted malt, and wheat. Light to medium body that was gently carbonated. The flavor was strong hops bitterness. APA or IPA? Anyway, the beer was a refreshing drink.

Another tasty ipa. Enjoyed at the old fashioned in Mad town. Good hop aroma and flavor, not overally bitter, easy drinker for a good ipa. I was actually expecting a bit more hop crack out of this, but was one of the best IPA’s of the trip

Pours light gold with a fluffy, moderate, white head. Aroma is passion fruit (SIMCOE Hops). Moderate mouth feel with a strong passion fruit flavor. I really like Simcoe hops, so I really dig this.

Bottle. Pine, and grapefruit hops on the nose with some nice roasted sweet malt. Pours a rich golden copper with nice lacing down the glass. Flavor is mostly bright grassy and floral hops with a hint of dry yeast and some moderately sweet malt. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A sessionable APA.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampled at Bob’s McFarland Liquors in McFarland, Wisconsin. Pours a clear caramel amber brew with a decent off-white head that slowly dissolves toa creamy ring. Aroma of mostly grapefruit/pine hops, roasted caramel malt with a touch of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of sweet grapefruit, lemon zest and a touch of soda crackers. Finish is slightly dry, tart grapefruity bitter with a distinct pine aftertate. A decent West Coast IPA style brew.

7/05/2007: Ale Asylum Hopalicious is gold in color, hazy, and has a lasting, puffy, off-white head. A wonderful bouquet of orangy Cascade hops fills the nose. There is also some underlying toasty caramel/toffee malt in the aroma. The flavor is beautifully balanced between the soft orange and citrus hops and the slightly chewy caramel and toasty maltiness. It gets even better as it warms. The bitterness is quite mild and very appropriate for the style. The medium body has a moderate level of carbonation. It is very smooth and like feels like soft velvet on the palate. Ale Asylum definitely fit all the right pieces together to form a haromnious brew. Hopalicious is a very satisfying American Pale Ale that would be one of my favorites if it were available in my area...

12 oz bottle from buckybeer. Thanks again Mark. You are so lucky to have access to so many great beers from top-notch breweries (e.g. New Glarus, Tyranena, Lake Louie, Ale Asylum) in Wisconsin! Thank you for always thinking of me an picking them up for me. I really appreciate it!

It pours deep gold and notes of citrus domintae the aroma. These flavors grow into the flavors and you get a little more spice when getting the extreme bitterness.
