COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A chaotic blend of Citra hops and Trappist-style yeast give this IPA aromas of summer fruit and a bright hop presence with a plush finish. Bedlam is all natural and unfiltered for superior flavor and quality.It is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way.

Pours a hazy, dirty orange brown with lasting thin soapy head and good lacing. Aroma combo of Citra and Trappist yeast works well for me, with a mix of citrus fruit and peppery yeast. Taste starts nicely with mellow dank citrus from the Citra, then the yeast spice comes around in the middle, finally drying out with a sharper bitterness that fades after several seconds into a nicer aftertaste. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth, and above-average carbonation. Not crave-worthy, but an points for uniqueness, and makes an interesting suggestion for an IPA that a Belgian yeast fan can try.

Pours a amber color and murky. Aroma of sour citrus, floral, and some sweet belgian malts. Taste follows the nose pretty well. Has a nice bitterness mixed in there and a was an overall nice drinking beer.

Location: Draft at Blue Frogís Local 22, 6/23/14

Aroma: The aroma has some fruity hops and some Belgian yeast
Appearance: This one has an orange pour, an off-white head, and plenty of lace
Flavor: This one has a pretty hoppy flavor, good balancing spice, and a medium-plus hop bitterness
Palate: It has a clean, easy drinking mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I found this to be a pretty nice, enjoyable beer. As a first beer from Ale Asylum, Iím pretty impressed. Iíll happily try more from them.

Beautiful burnt orange pour into Duvel tulip glass. Yeasty aroma with a bit of citrus and fruit. I get a sweet passion fruit in the flavor along with some nice citrusy hops. A nice balance between the belgian esters and hops. Sticky and sweet on the palate.

Pour a light amber with a finger sized off-white head. Nose is of hops. Very creamy and velvety mouthfeel. Taste is hop forward but with a lingering sweetness of malt and fruit. Pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches and dill pickles.

From 12oz bottle. Pours a amber reddish brown with a white head. Aroma of earthy floral hops. Tastes of light sweetness and light bitterness. A light fizzy medium body with a slight bitterness that finishes with a slight creaminess.Overall a pretty good effort and fairly smooth for this high of abv. Good effort for a belgium ipa style.

Pours a clear light orange with about a finger of off-white, slowly dissipating head. Brown sugar and lemon in the nose. Taste of caramel and lemongrass, with a lot of zest that fades into a gentle hop bitterness. This is one of the more interesting, complex IPAs Iíve had in a while.

Bottle thanks to Chris. Cloudy bright amber with medium off white head. Lots of citrus aroma and flavor. Some banana and a little clove at the finish. Excellently balanced.

Nice amber color to this Belgian style IPA. Lots of citrus on the nose. Grapefruit and lemon, with a bit of resin and floral hop notes. Unfiltered for a nice mouthfeel.

Served: 12 oz bottle Look: pours a dark amber color, slight gaze to it. White head that turns thick after a while Smell: some sour notes like a Belgian IPA. Definite citrus flavors. Lemons. Floral aromas as well. Taste: definite sour taste. Feel: bitter is on the end of the taste. Light feel, light carbonation. Overall: might be a good beer for summer. Kind if refreshing, but not a big fan of the sour notes. Definitely a Belgian IPA with the sour notes to it. First drank: home Decatur April 20, 2014
