COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

12 oz bottle via Mys Swap 3.0 (Thanks Monger!) This one is a hazy amber with a large beige head. Nose is mostly floral hops with a touch of citrus and some lemon. Taste starts with orange, then a little pine, and lots of grapefruit with a dash of lemon. This is hoppy yet bittersweet and rides on a good malt backbone. Hops do take center stage though. It almost seems like it was wet-hopped. Body is light. Carbonation is moderate. A nice easy drinking APA with some good hoppy flavor.

Pretty good APA, sampled at Food and Froth. Very hoppy, with some bite and piney flavor.

Had this one on draught at Angelic Brewing Company in Madison, Wisconsin. Hazy, medium orange pour with a thick, bubbly off-white head, rosy, flowery hops in the nose with a strong, bitter taste, clean with flowery hoppiness, and a clean, strong finish. Good.

There was so little malt presence it was hard to finish. It had a great amber color and nice amber head. I would not drink tis again.

pepsican (1448) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2008
pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Obviously a ton of citrus aroma with the cascade hops. Flavor was hops, citrus, bread, sweet malts, and lemon. Mildly carbonated, nice bitter finish. Very good.

Another strong offering from Ale Asylum. The cascade hops in this one had fantastic citrus (sweet oranges) aroma. I was raving about just the nose of this one. The sip was more bitter than I was expecting from the aroma, but it’s what you expect in an APA. Could have been a bit fuller in mouthfeel and flavor, but not bad at all.

3fourths (8211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2008
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft pint at Angelic in Madison. Golden orange and slightly hazy in appearance. Frsh, juicy, gummy candy hop nose, and crisp on the lips with super clean pils-like malt, snappy. IPA-like hop levels, both in juiciness/fruitiness and in bitterness, with some sweet cherry flavored malts in the finish. Pretty good.

ceeman (3) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2007 does not count
One of my favorites. Unfiltered, so it has a very cloudy orange appearance. Good hop punch and citrus taste, without too much grapefruit. Pretty good staying power with a full, bitter finish.

awautlet (45) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Hazy and golden in color with a pale white head that fades to a ring around the glass. Citrusy and hoppy nose followed by loads of hops on the palate. More citrus and a bit of pine. A very hoppy, crisp finish but not overly bitter.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Light amber color, white frothy head with lacing. Big orange and grapefruit aroma with just a touch of caramel. Flavor is more of the same although a bit more piney. This APA leans more on the bitter side of the spectrum which is AOK is my opinion. Finish is pleasantly long and bitter. Medium to big mouthfeel. Good to see Ale Asylum will become a regular at my local beer store.
