Amongst the myriad of IPAs that I've come across, Hopalicious ranks as one of the finest. The IPA style in general has become so over-saturated of late that's it is always refreshing to find an IPA that stands above the crowd.

As the name suggests, Hopalicious is rich with complex hops. It is quite bitter in such a pleasant and drinkable way that the could only come from Ale Asylum's expert-treatment of their cascade hops. It's very floral and citrusy, which is balanced perfectly by its strong bitterness.

Among IPAs, it's very sweet at heart, although I wouldn't call it a sweet beer per se (sweet as in sugar and caramel). The sweetness in Hopalicious is used as more of a balancing mechanism.

This really is a pinnacle of American IPAs and I hope that Ale Asylum—with their spectacular new facilities—are able to expand their micro-brewed gem to a larger crowd.
