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!

Love this beer. Either from the bottle or from a tap it is great. Seems to take a bit of flack and I am not sure why. This is one of my favorite brews from AA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 Medium body. Sour apple, piney hops, MAJOR caramel, amaretto, a hint of salt, and some pleasant booze. Nice, though somewhat on the soapy side and more typical of the style than usual from Ale Asylum.

Pours a dark golden to orange color with very little head. Aroma was earthy hay and simple for an IPA. Taste was very similar with the aroma followed by alcohol at the end. An earthy IPA with no hints of any sweet fruits. A nice mild mouthfeel. Overal, an ok average beer. Was hoping for more.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This blew me away. What a great beer. Hazy amber with a white head. Candy floral aroma--simple awesome. Flavor gives way to grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and didnít finish too bitter. Not a perfect palate but balanced on the palate nonetheless. I bought two bottles--weíll see if they hold up to the standard set by the tap version. Wow. (tap at Old Fashioned, Madison)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep reddish orange, with creamy off-white head. Sticky lacing. Big caramel malts up front, biscuity mouthfeel, bright citrus and moderate bitterness. Lingering finish of the back of the tongue. Hides the ABV well. Really solid.
