Steve's Liquor Madison

Ambergeddon pours a slightly chill hazed caramel into my pint glass. A 1 finger dense craggy head formed on the pour that stuck around awhile. As the head slowly fades it becomes thick and creamy. Leaves strong lacing.

Aroma begins with a mild caramel background but big juicy citric hops kick any malt that's there out of the way quickly. The hop combination is pretty unique. There's the usual grapefruit along with a squeeze of lemon but those two are more in the background. The main citric hop character is lime. Mild pine needles waft through the air as well.

Grapefruit hops come through up front. There's always that little hint of caramel maltiness in the background but hops rule the roost. The grapefruit in the flavor is sweetened and juicy along with some lip puckering qualities. Couple sprinklings of lemon juice on top of pine needles on the swallow. Very enjoyable.

Medium body with a smooth and lush mouthfeel. Finishes with a solid dryness that helps accentuate the hops. Solid bitterness.

Easy drinking enjoyable beer. The dryness leaves you wanting another drink right after the last.

My first beer from Ale Asylum and hopefully not my last. I'm a sucker for hoppy reds and this hits the nail on the head. Excellent.
