On tap @ Brickhouse BBQ

A: Served in a shaker pint with just the slightest surface coating of off-white head. Beer itself is deep caramel brown in color. There is minimal lacing

S: Sweet caramel malt with some pine and citrus.

T: Damn, this one has some serious caramel malt. A bit of orange and some faint hops try to cut through the malt, but sweet malt is the dominant flavor here. Moderate bitterness. Lingering malt finish.

M: On the heavier side of medium with a good dose of residual maltiness in the mouth. Lower carb level. Alcohol shows through as a bit of heat.

D: An average, rather malt centric and sweetish tasting DIPA that is not to my liking. Not necessarily difficult to drink, just not my preferred expression of the style.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy, medium amber color with a heavy ring of peripheral off-white bubbles. Light lacing remains and a few specks of yeast sediment are seen at the bottom of the glass.

S: Aggressive hops convey mixed citrus qualities in the nose that are joined by less potent herbaceous and earthy smells. Nothing really says malt in the smell, although a suggestion of sweetness to come is transmitted. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins sweet, with acidic and lively grapefruit citrus aromatics that are more intense than they are interesting. As the early assault of hop flavors relent, soft and mild bready malt emerges in the brief middle. The finish is moderately bitter, somewhat herbaceous but otherwise clean. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, sticky and acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Intense but simplistic, this beer is a mixed bag of style-appropriate, if not particularly memorable, flavors. It would likely seduce only the newly-converted hop-head. Think of it as training wheels for the top tier DIPAs.

This brew was much better last year. Very citrus nose and taste, orange mainly. Alot of competing flavors that never really comes together. Is it a DIPA? is it a heavily hopped wheat beer? is it worth 14/6? I'd say no to all. They have a very nice new brewery though, thats worth a tour

Thanks to mhksuccess for sharing this at dabaloons' tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, citrus zest, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some fairly earthy flavors.

12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. No date or info.

A - A patient pour brought about an incredibly dense light toffee-colored head with great retention. As it went down it left rings of thick lacing on the glass. The color is a slightly hazy rich ruby red with a copper hue to it.

S - The aroma is full of fresh, hoppy goodness. Lots of floral, pine, and grapefruit notes with an earthy malt backbone. Some sweet honey and caramel in the background too. Good nose but not very dynamic.

T - The earthy flavors really come out strong in the taste. The malts have a sweet quality about them with a light honey dab. and the hops pack a pine-needle punch. A small note of nuttiness lingers modestly while the finish demands your attention with a bitter and citric zest.

M - The bitter, dry finish is nicely juxtaposed to the smooth feel of this beer. Medium-full bodied and well balanced.

D - Not incredibly diverse in it's presentation but a good Double IPA nonetheless. Simple yet good but possibly cloying, it's another nice Ale Asylum brew.

Clear dark orange, good initial head.

Lots of caramel malt, some floral hops.

Very sweet --- caramel and toffee are up front, slight floral and muted pine hop notes. Verging on too buttery when cold, but this improved as it warmed.

Viscous mouthfeel.

This was just fine, but wasn't really what excites me in a DIPA.

Served in a Half Acre tulip.

A- Nice caramel with a 2 finger off-white head. Lots of spotty lacing remain on the glass.

S- Biscuit and some sweet malts. Lots of pine and floral hop aromas.

T- Nice caramel malt body with slight bready/biscuity taste. Actually get some slight citrus notes, but still dominated by spicy,herbal, pine hop bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Although this beer is fairly bitter it doesn't have a dry finish or lingering aftertaste.

O- This beer grows on you as you drink it. First sip wasn't too impressed, but after a few drinks I noticed this beer is a little more balanced than first thought.

A: Deep, dark amber in color..to the point where its almost a sunset orange..

S: Light aroma of orange peel, grapefruity hops...

T: Not as hoppy as I'd expected... a little bit of Tanginess... again, the hops are not as present as I would have originally thought... not sure how old the bottle, not necessarily flat..more mellow I guess...

M: Creamy, nice feeling beer..

O: I like Ale Asylum. This is a decent beer..nothing worth going well out of your way for, but a decent drinking brew... So many DIPAs out there though...
