Bedlam is OPAQUE. I poured it from a 12 ounce bottle and I could see chunks of unfiltered yeasty stuff floating around like gelatinous submarines. The strong citrus hops are a donkey kick of flavor for a summer barbeque. I highly recommend this stuff for a hot, lazy, afternoon picnic.

Picked up a store in Kohler, WI. Interesting IPA. Very citrusy hop aroma and flavor. Almost pepper/fruity taste in the malty yeastiness. I thought is was good but almost didn’t quite work for me. Sometimes harmonious in the mouth sometimes clashing flavors. Serving: Bottle

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Full pint at graze, Madison. Yikes, so much for staying dry this weekend... Pours a copper penny brown pour and topped with a creamy white head... Aroma is a smooth Belgian yeast and semi-sweet tropical fruitiness followed up by a considerate, not. Considerable caramel malt backbone... Semi-sweet tropical fruit and citrus up front. Equalling degree of sweeter caramel malt to mingle alongside the aforementioned. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation. Solid Belgian styled pale ale without the Belgian yeast becoming too obtrusive.

an interesting IPA. I’m not a huge fan of the belgium style IPA’s but this one is worth picking up if its a style your a fan of. Pours a deep orange to red, floral and bready nose, malty hoppy taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop and soft fruit aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet hop flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a change of pace good beer.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange with some yeast. Good use of Citra in this case - mango, apricot, some pine. Flavor is a good dosage of Citra bitterness - again mango, apricot, some pine - and finishes with sweet clove, caramel, light banana, and yeast. Some light apple/pear notes as well. One of the better uses of Citra that I’ve tried - not as offensive. Carbonation felt a little on the high side. Other than that, quite good.

12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a cloudy, deeper orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice. Lots of fresh tropical fruits with a bunch of papaya and mango as well as oranges and pineapples with a light resin. The hops offer a nice mix of sweet and spicy while leaning just slightly towards the sweet hops. Pretty malty with a very pleasant biscuity pale malt sweetness and a light caramel to balance as well as a really nice Belgian yeast aspect that accompanies the biscuity malts and citrusy hops well. Flavor is similar. Very nice, biscuity pale malt sweetness up front with a light caramel and lots of juicy tropical fruits. Citrus comes in along with an even amount of Belgian yeast that blends well rather than dominating the flavor. Caramel remains present, but allows the hops to grow towards the end with a few resins and a light pepper. Finishes dry, juicy, and very clean with a light-medium, herbal-grassy-floral bitterness that leaves a lengthy aftertaste with plenty of tropical fruits and citrus as well as a light caramel and banana ester. Medium, smooth, clean body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a damn fine Belgian IPA. Excellent balance and easy drinking throughout with a great blend of biscuity malts, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus, spice, and Belgian yeast. Well done!

12oz bottle thanks to largadeer. Pours a somewhat hazy dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma is very citrusy with huge tangerine and peach, with spicy Belgian yeast and sweet malt evident. Sweet malt, orange, tangerine, peach, and somewhat Americanized Belgian notes. Medium-plus body with some resinousness and average carbonation. Overall good stuff. Not ridiculously good, but good.
