Easily one of my favorite IPAs. Huge delightful beta acids, low on the alpha acids. Great notes of grapefruit and other citrus flavors. I always buy the store out when Ballistic show up.

At Ale Asylum new taproom/brewery, served in a pint glass.

Has a real unique nose,real malty/rye nose, not sure.

Taste is slightly sweet,malty, can taste the strength.

Glad I tried it, but not a favorite.

Pours slightly hazed amber with a lasting creamy head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of a robust citric aroma from plenty of amarillo hops.

The taste is of bitter citrus and some peach balanced by a firm caramel malty sweetness. A bit of alcohol shows in the finish.

It is creamy and smooth despite a bitter, spicy bite.

This showcases the amarillo hops well while keeping enough balance to it to be smooth and very drinkable. Alcohol shows a bit, but is well-integrated. An excellent IPA!
