3.35/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into tulip. Reddish with an amber look. Big fluuffy white head. Sticks around for awhile with good lacing.

Very malty nose. Very unexpected. Sweet for an DIPA. Hops are hard to find. They show up in a "off" sort of way. Not quite citrus, but something to that extent.

Taste isn't balanced. But instead of a lean toward the hops like other DIPA's it's all sweet malt. The hops give off a metallic taste. More barleywine than anything. Not what I was looking for.

Mouthfeel and drinkability are average. I'm really disappointed in this beer. From a brewery that does hops exceptionally well I was expecting so much more. I would have settled for a doubled version of Hopalicious. This is the lone disappointment I've had for Ale Asylum. Oh well.

***A friend told me I must have had an old bottle so he gave me a fresh one to try.
Totally different beer! Nice aroma and crisp hop flavors. Pine and citrus with just enough malt to balance. Changed my scores to reflect my second experience. The color even seemed to be clearer with less of an amber color. More dark golden. Drink your IPA's fresh!

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. best by date of 11-20-13.

A - Hazy dark copper with an off white 1.5 finger head that slowly develops. It does fade into a ring, but leaves a lot of webbed lacing on the glass.

S - Citrus, pine, and floral. Sweetness from the malts, caramel, honey, brown sugar.

T - Bitter pine up front with notes of floral and citrus. It is quickly put aside by a big sweet malt flavor in the middle. Honey, syrup, brown sugar and caramel come in very quickly. There is a light citrus bitter finish. If you are looking for the bitter to take over, this will disappoint.

M - It is a medium to full bodied IIPA with decent carbonation. A slick, yet syrup like feel.

O - This year the bottle will have a best buy date stamped on it about 4 months after bottling. This reminds me of Double Crooked Tree, but not as intense. It does have a bitter front, but it is quickly pushed aside by a massive wave of malt sweetness. You have to really pay attention to notice how bitter it starts, but most people only get the sweetness in the middle. Bought a 6pk for $12.49
