Drink of the Week: Satisfaction Jackson, a double IPA from Ale Asylum

I haven't had a drink of the week post in a while. Luckily this one should more than make up for it.

Satisfaction Jackson comes from, Ale Asylum which is a Madison brewery that dominates the local IPA market with their Hopalicious. Neither of us are huge fans of Hopalicious, but really enjoy their other beer.

We first read about Satisfaction Jackson on our first trip to the Ale Asylum brewery. It wasn't available yet, but we made sure to come back when it was to have it on tap. Delicious. The waitress told us they release it and have it until its gone. We are still able to get six packs of it, but have only had it on tap at a few other places (served in a goblet, lame).

We also took a tour of their brewing facilities, which are packed to the brim with only one bottling line. They are planning a move to a bigger place soon.

Satisfaction Jackson is a double IPA, which means its strong, bitter, and pretty bold. It is also a little more pricey. Its definitely not for everyone, but thats okay because it means there's more for us!
