Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

Not yet it Best Buy Date.
First of several WI beers as i just returned from a family gig there.
Label hints at loads of cascade and if this is what that smells like - yum and well done. Summer clear fresh flowery citrus slight grass and a hint of oil. Very nice.
One of the slower developing heads I've come across but it's thick and dense and covers a dark gold slighty cloudy body.
First notice a slightly light body with a bit of a aqueous quality. The bottle description is correct with a ample hop flavor but a low level of bitterness. The hop flavors pretty much match the aroma, just balanced a bit differently. A slight grainy quality to the malt.
A real nice drinking beer. Soft feel overall and very inviting.

This beer poured out as a clear lookig yellowish gold color. The head was white and fizzy, with a good amount of bubbles rising to the glass. The lacing was minimal with just some scattered suds around the glass. The smell of the beer is a bit more earthy and malty than I expected. The taste of the beer is also more grainy than I originally thought it would be. The mouthfeel was clear and crisp, light bodied and had a sharp carbonation to it. Overall this beer sounded like it was going to be a bit more hoppy than it actually was. The beer itself isn't bad just not exactly what I was hoping for.

Poured into a Tulip.

Poured a golden color with a 2 finger white head.

Smelled of faint hops, nothing too enticing about the smell.

Taste was average - certainly a hop presence but a beer called "Hopalicious" needs to have much more to offer in the hop arena. Remarkably boring.

Mouthfeel was average.

Overall a very average APA. Wish there was some more complexity and flavor to it. Tastes a bit watered down and is not very exciting.

A presumptuously-named disappointment.

I’d never heard of Ale Asylum brewery, or Hopalicious, but picked up a 6-pack yesterday while visiting Wisconsin, as I love trying new pale ales. Intrigued (Provoked?) by the beer's boastful name and promise of "lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor," I selected Hopalicious over reliable standby Sierra Nevada and was ready to be wowed by the former's "eleven separate additions of Cascade hops," or at least appreciate their presence.

A mistake, I realized, on my first watery sip. This is not a hoppy beer. I tasted hops, faintly, but they were so diluted that I wouldn't classify Hopalicious a pale ale at all without the disclaimer that it is a particularly watery one, with the corn-forward sweetness of a macro-lager. The beer's citrus character, on the other hand, was present, but generic. Not the complex peel oil hints you find in a well-hopped (or at least interesting) APA like Half Acre's Daisy Cutter or SixPoint's Bengali Tiger--think lemonade.

Overall, a disappointment that brought to mind an unfortunate shandy made from MGD and Sprite.
