COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Double IPA finishes at 8.25% ABV, and has a bitter bite at over 100 IBUs. As far as the dominant hop goes, three pounds of Centennial hops per barrel give our double IPA a slightly punishing yet entirely pleasing bitterness that dances on the tongue.

ChiGuy68 (406) - Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle (Thanks to Pablo for bringing it back from Madison for me). It poured a rich hazy amber with an off-white head and streaky lacing. Aroma is a mixture of hops, grapefruit, and pine. An enjoyable bitter hop and malt taste, that has a lingering bitter finish. Ale Asylum knows their way around an IPA.

Pours reddish tan with beige head. Aroma is dominant with bitter citrus and resin. Faint aromas of caramel and malt. Sweet medium body with strong astringent notes throughout. Great beer and hits hard after a few

islay (1093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Ale Asylum Satisfaction Jacksin. 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-7-13. Pleasant, floral, sweet aroma features apricot, toffee, dry hops, biscuit, shortbread, brown sugar, rose, and light urine scents. Pours a clear copper with a reddish hue and a small to moderate amount of gold-taupe head. Light effervescence in the liquid. Some haze that creates a sable/leather appearance. Sweet, fruity, juicy start with a dry finish. Mineral water, brown sugar, apricot, and lemon elements. Excessively sweet. Parching, dry aftertaste. Easy to drink for the style. Medium body (light-bodied by the standards of the style). Soft in the palate. Mostly pleasant but not particularly strong (subpar, in fact) for this, perhaps my favorite style. 7/4/6/3/13=>3.3

tricyclist (709) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Nice sample pour of mild amber with full white head. Nose is citrus and grapefruit with mild candy sweetness, maybe mango and some tropics. Flavor is super smooth, citrus and bitter, but not too sharp. Somewhat balanced... Some mango but less than the nose. Mild medium body. Not bad at all.

Draft at Ale Asylum. I’m really diggin this beer. Loads of caramel malt for a stiff backbone and a whole bunch of citrus, grapefruit and orange zest for the hops. Brought a growler home. Awesome.

Yum, this is a nice beer. On draft at Bodega in LaCrosse, WI. Dark clear amber with a nice white head, lots of lacing. Pine in the nose. Taste is citrus and pine with honey and molasses sweetness. Reminds me a bit of hopslam, but more mellow. Really nice!
