Poured from 12oz bottle, the Ale Asylum Hopalicious is a good IPA. The beer poured a clear orange with white head. The scent carried fresh hops that leans toward citrus. The taste follows the nose quite well. It does have a bitter flavor, but not over powering. Overall this is a great beer.

Pours clear gold. Brief white head with residual lacing. Nice light citrus hop aroma. Flavor starts citrus, evolves to more peppery, long finish that blends the two. Never gets intensely bitter. Nice effervescence, keeps it clean and refreshing on the palate. Overall, really nice, refreshing, medium body, medium ABV, nicely balanced APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed bright orange pour with a staying off white cap. Plant oil aroma that evokes fresh chinook and a pile of floral, pollen-laden centennial
flowers. Soapy lavender notes and other sharp herbs mingle with calcified water mineral tones. Citrus rinds round out the rather ordinary but entirely solid hop presentation.
The plant stem forward fresh hop sensation is also prevalent in the flavor. Dandelion, rose, nettles. High on bitterness that is defined by a raw, medicinal quality; lemon zest and fresh tarragon mitigate this with a fruity, bright sweetness. The fresh, clear hop flavor is winsome here, but the absence of balance is hard to ignore.
The light to medium body is somewhat under carbonated, exacerbating the soap and stinging plant oil qualities. The finish is green and lengthy. Quality effort here; just a bit raw ultimately.

With Z, on the first football Sunday, pours a hazy rusty orange color with a small quickly dissipated head. Nose is bitter citrus with deep resin and pine.
Taste is bitterly sweet, with citrus and some heavy resin and pine. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long bittersweet finish. Solid APA. Quaff Score 7 / 10
