3.84/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint.
A - Good clarity inside its copper color. Small white head. Spotty lacing.
S - Piney hops have a wet/resiny sense. The beer quickly opens up to show some spicy phenolics. Pleasant American aroma with said belgian qualities. Toasty and mild nutty malt.
T - Starts with a nice layer of biscuit malt shortly slides underneath a big piney hop flavor midway. There are some citrus tones in there as well. Spicy yeast qualities blend into adequate bitterness that is only perceived on the back of the tongue. Crisp finish with gripping hop flavors long after.
M - Medium body, medium-light carbonation, dry.
O - Aroma was it's highlight, had a good grasp on style. Hops seemed to be one dimensional leaning strongly towards pine in aroma but even more so taste. Great feel and appearance. I would recommend but not go out of the way to find.

12 oz. bottle, with a space for an enjoy by date, but it is left blank. My third beer from Ale Asylum, expectations are high based on this beer's good ratings.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a coppery burnt orange colored body with some dark flecks of sediment floating around and three big fluffy fingers of off-white head. Nice big scattered lacing. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is comprised of a prominent fruity / earthy yeast presence, and a nice dosage of fresh piney / tropical hop smells. Grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel & rye malt, and some bubblegum / clove / spice presence.
T - Taste follows the nose - a good pairing of fruity bubblegum yeast, clove, apple, pear, grapefruit, pine, and some cracked pepper / rye malt / caramel malt to round things off.
M - Feel is super smooth and creamy. Bitterness is light, but present. Green apple stickiness, bready, & malty. Mild warming alcohol presence.
Overall, a good representation of the style. Very nice balance, depth, and duration of flavor. I would have it again, and I look forward to more from Ale Asylum.
