Pours an amber color with a small white head. Smells of piney citrus hops. The taste is much like the smell. Piney and citrusy. But not to much. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, one of my favorite pale ales.

One of the better APA's Wisconsin has to offer. Ale Asylum nails this one with some really citrusy hop flavors and the solid pallet feel. Mostly for the experienced "hop-heads" Hopalicious does not hide it's bold IPA roots.

Overall a very good "drink a bunch of beer". Has a good hoppy flavor and goes down really easy. Not as big on flavor as other APAs or IPAs but one of my go to's at work functions were the other options are Miller Light, Spotted Cow and the other usuals. Great drinking beer just not a legendary crazy flavor beer which is fine.

Comes in a little bit darker than average pale ale, this has the light amber colors going for it, 1/3" head. Looks like the 11 stage hopping just used the bittering hop (Cascade) as the aroma hop as well. Decent, but not dropping big time aromas.

Taste was nice, balanced good mix of malt and Cascade hops, reminds one of SNPA. I did notice they go quickly in terms of quality and age. Drink 'em fast. Overall, an enjoyable pale ale in the 2nd tier of quality, which is to say it is definitely better than average, but not in the upper echelon of world class beers either.

Nice hazy amber gold appearance with a nice lingering head.
Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral notes and resiny bitterness.
Tastes are pretty similar with an emphasis on the dankness.
Palate is medium with a good lingering finish.
Overall a really nice pale with a big bitterness.
