Best by 04/2014:

Pours hazed orange amber with a foamy off-white head that stays. Ample lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus, pine, caramel and black pepper.

The taste is of sweet caramel and resin with medicinal/aspirin-ish bitterness in the finish.

It just hits full-bodied. It is chewy and very smooth with a carbonation level that fits it well.

This is a satisfying DIPA. Appropriately strong with lingering hop bitterness.

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.

Ale Asylum Satisfaction Jacksin {sic} Double IPA. Ale Asylum, Madiosn, WI.
Like every Ale Asylum bottle, no information about ABV is included, or even hinted at. It's the Wisconsin way. There is a spot for a "Best Enjoyed By" date, but it is blank. (8.5%, we eventually learned.)

Dark ruby coloration, clear, solid, lasting creamy white head on top.

Aroma: grapefruit rind, lemon and lime. Prickly pine on the side. Pretty nice, so far.

Taste: Hop bomb from the get-go. Medium-bodied. Boldly bitter hoppitude commands the palate. Bright and juicy with plenty of malt to hold it all down. Am I satisfied? Fairly, though not overly. Not as much as the dude on the label illustration, that's for sure.

Hey, what do they tell us on the label, what's the gobbledygook? "Three pounds of centennial hops per barrel give our double IPA a slightly punishing yet entirely pleasing bitterness that dances on the tongue. Satisfaction is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way."

It's actually fairly easy-drinking, says this hop-head. Not really punishing. Or am I just jaded?

A good-drinking double IPA, nothing earth-shaking, world-toppling, or regime-changing happening here. Sometimes things work out that way, to our satisfaction, or not.
