Bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Aroma is straight up piney hops. Taste is straight up piney hops. Well maybe (just) a bit more. Some grapefruit possibly. A dry bitter pale ale that seems much closer to an IPA. Light bodied, sharp, and well carbonated.

Canít count how many times that I have had this. More of an IPA than a straight pale. Either way a great brew that is balanced and drinkableí Hops are in your face, but it is not all the bitterness that some have. Great beer for someone that is unsure how they feel about hops...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, white pepper, caramel, and pine lumber. Flavors are of more white grapefruit, lean pale malt, oange-aid, and a bit of fresh herbs. Medium bodied and refreshing. Vaguely like SNPA, only a bit more brash. Paired well with Scottís amazing prime rib dinner.

Pours a cloudy gold with a medium sized off-white head mostly lasting. Nose is hoppy. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is chock full of hops but is not overly bitter . A backbone of malt subtly enhances and sweetens the hops. Pairs well with smoked meats, especially fish or turkey.

Ale Asylumís specialty brew. An easy to drink APA. Nice blend of hops, with a light citrus taste in addition. This beer only gets better each time I have it.

I love Ale Asylumís light, fruity take on pale ales. It tastes like thereís a common ingredient between this and Bedlam (or maybe just the same balance between citrus and malt) that makes it taste like candy.

Clear yellow. Pure aroma leaning to lemon. Cascadey with a quick finish, veering to citrus and then an awkward bitterness. The aroma was great but the tasting killed it. It was this beer that made me question whether the bar cleaned its lines regularly, because it didnít seem right. (tap at Old Fashioned, Madison)
