12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
5.8% ABV, Best Enjoyed By: blank.

A - The golden-orange body shines bright even with a light particle haze but the real show-stopper is a monstrous cream-colored thick and rich head. It's retention turned to a rocky surface is only matched in awesomeness by the incredibly thick and art-like lacing it leaves on the glass.

S - Hopalicious has a fantastically potent blend of fruity and floral hop aromas that's more akin to an IPA. Mandarin orange and nectarine create a nice fruity medley around light pine and a slight citrus tang. A crystal and light malt sweetness stands strong in the background comfortable letting the hops steal the show.

T - Neither the hops nor malts dominate the flavor the way they do in aroma, instead they work harmoniously. The flavor starts off smooth and malty with no real flavor definition but shifts seamlessly to the hop bitterness. The hops lack the big fruity punch but retain the floral aspects; flower pedals and light pine-needle mingle with a small squirt of citrus.

M - Hopalicious is well carbonated but without the serious throat-bite at the end; instead, this beer is a bit creamy and smooth. Bold hopping in this pale ale imparts a dry and bitter profile that finishes with a touch of alcohol warmth in the stomach.

O - Ale Asylum has struck gold with Hopalicious, a delicious and round-bodied pale with a great aroma and inviting appearance. The flavor lends itself very well to a (richer) hoppy session beer that has great drinkability!
