This beer is very hoppy and tastes great.

It has a nice yellow color toward brownish. It has a nice head when poured into a pint glass. They recently moved the brewery to a larger facility and have switched from the stubby bottle to long necks. The quality is still A-1.

Pours a very nice yellow, with a good haze and a nice half finger of white head, decent lacing

Smell is all citrus at first, lemons, orange, limes and grapefruit aromas are all present

Taste is more of the same citrus charachters followed by a nice sweet malt precense, finishes clean and crisp.

Mouthfeel is light medium, pretty standard for a APA

This is a beer I pick up to switch it up every once and while from NG Moon Man, I really like this one, I have had a couple of bad 12s and 6ers though.... Once they get that under control I will be picking this up more and more... Glad this 6 was good, the last was not, neither was the 12 before it.

One other thing, I do not really understand why have a blank white spot with best buy written above it.... Why not put the best by there instead of leaving it blank.

All in all I will base my score off of this beer, I do not review beer from bad batches or that is infected as it is not fair to the overall score.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served from a bottle at ~45F

Appearance- Murkry straw yellow with thin white head

Aroma- citrus citrus and more citrus. Some bread

Flavor- a great platform for the cascade hop. There is little malt flavors detected. Slightly watery

Mouthfeel- medium light to medium. Carbonation seems acceptable

Overall- of all of the ale asylum beers that I have tried (Ambergeddon, Contorter, Madtown, Satisfaction Jacksin) this is my favorite
