Starting new tab, we are going to take a look at the final beer from Ale Asylum and it is called Hopalicious. This is their flagship beer from this young brewery. If you read my earlier beer blogs, you know something about this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
This beer has a nice copper color without a head on the beer. It has a nice citrus to grapefruit smell. The taste is carbonation grapefruit notes. There is really no aftertaste to this beer. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush cirtus aromas and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness. Hopalicious is all natural and unfiltered 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):

Hopalicious is a refreshing American Pale Ale unique enough for the connoisseur, approachable enough for the novice, and drinkable to everyone. Sure, we could have made it “Bitterlicious”, or even “Maltalicious” for that matter. But we didn’t. We made it Hopalicious. And we made it for the everyday hophead who wants bold, citrus hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

Closing out, this was a pretty great beer. It has a ton of flavor while being very well balanced. I love the packaging. For the few beers, I have had from this brewery. I am really impressed by this one. I am looking forward to making it up to the brewery to check out the rest of their line up. If you are in the area, go there and try them. The porter is the only one I have questioned but there is a good reason for it. I recommend their beers. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
