Starting new tab, I will be featuring three beers from Ale Asylum in the next three posts. The first beer is called Satisfaction Jacksin Double IPA. Ale Asylum was founded in 2005 in Madison, Wisconsin. They brew several ale styles. There is barely any information on this brewery on the web. Let us get into this ale.
This double IPA has a dark copper color without a head on the beer. It has a nice pineapple smell to the beer. It has a weird taste to the beer. It has a little pineapple and then some citrus to it. The beer has earthly to the taste. It is really balance with a nice malty backbone. It is extremely drinkable for being a Double IPA.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Three pounds of Centennial hops per barrel give our double IPA a slightly punishing yet entirely pleasing bitterness that dances on t he tongue. Jacksin is unfiltered and all natural for superior flavor and quality. It is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way.
Here is a description from their website (www.aleasylum.com):
Available: Sep – Dec Style: Double IPA Motto: Slightly punishing, entirely pleasing.
Satisfaction Jacksin is a full frontal assault on the taste buds. The massive amounts of Centennial hops don’t tickle the taste buds as much as they beat them into submission. If hops make you hide and bitterness sends you cowering in the corner, steer clear of this hop monster. Pleasure? Check. Pain? Check. Satisfaction? Jacksin.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Raise Your Glass, this beer is pretty good but I will rotate it in and out of my regular line up of beer, if it was availabe in the Chicago Market. I had a friend bring me some bottles down from Wisconsin. I never heard of this brewery and it turns out that they are a very young brewery. I recommend you trying this brew and let me know what you think. I might have to make a trip up to Madison, Wisconsin some time soon. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
