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

Nice fresh hop flavor and aroma. Body almost too thin for the amount of hops, but it still works well. Serving: Draft

BierMeHoos (143) - Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

MaltOne (224) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2014
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.

Bottle. Thanks Katherine! Clear gold with a foamy, off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of citrus, spice, pine and sweet toasted malt. Flavor is caramel malt, citrus, pine and light biscuit. Medium bodied, slightly dry and bitter end.

Stine (1623) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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.

zgaier (1438) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a beige head and sweet citrusy, pine, caramel malt aroma. Taste is bittersweet, lots of hops, citrus, and pine with malt, caramel, and biscuit notes into the dry finish.
