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.

Aroma: Nice mix of citra hops and malt. This beer smells great to me. Appearance: Amber orange hue and hazy that looks very appealing. Taste: Nice balance of hops and malt. You can really pick up the citrus flavors with a caramel malt backbone. Slightly lighter on body and flavor, and very drinkable. Palate: Medium body with a nice level of carbonation. Finishes well with a moderate bitterness. Overall a very drinkable beer and one of my favorite purchases when I stop through Wisconsin - this is one I look for. Very drinkable and nicely balanced - not overpowering on the hops and bitterness with a nice malt backbone. I like the citra hopped beers and this one is well done.

Pours a golden orange with an off white head and great aroma of citrus, peach, sweet mango, and hops. Taste is very flavorful, lots of fruits, citrus, mango, peach, resin, and hops with a bitter, fruity finish. Delicious IPA

2014 bottle to an IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber color with vary little off-white head. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits with floral and grassy hops. Taste is the same sweet mango and tropical fruits with the grassy/flowery bitterness being more pronounced. A little dankness at the end. Medium, smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy copper orange with an oatmeal colored head that holds a good dollop throughout the experience and has good lacing. Aroma of citrus and pineapple mixes with the sweet Belgian yeast bubble gum, presenting tropical fruit scents. Also some chives and mild spicy aromas. Taste is somewhat sweet at first with tropical fruit and citrus then has some dankness. Dries out and has some grassy and floral character as well as mild spiciness. Finishes semi dry with moderate bitterness and spice. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium full body and moderate carbonation. An interesting and different IPA. The Belgian yeast skews things in a good way, adding unique characters to every element.

Pours a muddy orange color with foamy tan head and big lacing. Bright piney-fruity aroma. Taste - The fruitiness is what I notice first. Peach, apple and juicy fruit gum. Hops are piney up front with some citrusy floral accents. Soft mouthfeel. Has a bit of a unique taste. I like it.

HonkeyBra (3255) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Hazed dark orangish pour with a small white head. Aroma is quite fruity, with tropical fruit hop notes and fruity belgian yeast notes. Flavor has medium bitterness with balancing belgian yeast sweetness. Fairly twangy. Nice hop presence. Medium bodied, average carbonation with a medium hoppy finish. The is one of the better belgian IPAs on the market.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, hazy, thin to moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Bright citrusy nose.   Candied citrus peel and a bit of pith.   Also a bit dank.   Dank to start, muted citrus peel and pith.   Not as bright on the tongue as the nose suggested.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Bitterness is actually fairly mild.   Seems a bit doughy and barnish as times, perhaps from the Trappist style yeast.   Finishes less of an IPA than it started, doughy and yeasty.   Decent, but wish the brightness hung through to the finish.

pours gold-orange or orange-amber depending on backlighting, thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus (pineapple and orange and mango) hits immediately from afar. Burying one’s nose in it, one can discern some banana and flowers (the trappist touch, presumably Chimay yeast...WLP500?) Body is medium-light, somewhat syrupy and fuzzy, a bit low on the carbonation overall, a bit prickly and diffuse. Flavor has the aroma components, albeit with a lesser intensity. In addition, there are notes of grain and drying grass, maybe a hint of mineral. Some tree. A nice Belgian IPA, very good job blending the styles. Work on hop flavor intensity, head-retention, and distinct Belgianess if possible).

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Dark Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Citrus aroma some light strawberry and sweet grains and caramel. Full well coated palate. Flavor has a good amount of malty sweetness followed by a dry piney bitterness and a fair amount of citrus fruits. We’ll balanced tasty and pretty big with a subtle sign of its gravity in the swallow.
