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.

Brought in by a customer to Chuckís. Pour is slightly hazy yellow, little head. Smell is banana and tropical fruit. Taste is peaches and cream, very soft, very enjoyable. Great ipa.

This stuff is really wonderful. Fruit and citrus are the big words here. Almost candy-like. I had to stop myself from chugging it all down at once. The hop bite is there but itís smooth and doesnít leave the soapy aftertaste of many IPAs.

A-- Poured a dark, orange amber color. Close enough to see through. Just a few bubbles of carbonation on this. Bright white head that faded to film pretty quickly but left good sticky lacing. S-- Candy nose of the bat. Very nice nose. Candied sugar, Stewed plumb, pineapple, and grapefruit. Very nice nose. T-- Candied grapefruit and pine that change to straight pne and grapefruit. Starts Belgian and chnages to more of a US IPA. M-- Medium body and medium carbonation. Like how the beer changed character. From Belgian to US style. Got hoppier and more bitter in the back of the mouth. Very creamy in the front. Citra hops are really fresh with this. Very solid. O-- Good interperation with a bit of a twist. Smells and tastes Belgian but acts US in the mouth. Easy to drink and well hidden ABV. Can I have more of this please??

Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Well hazed peach color. One finger of frothy/creamy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left. 4.5 S: Quite hoppy and in a way that is befitting of the brew. This is super grassy. Itís probably the only brew Iíve ever had that is both extremely hoppy and not citrusy at all. Earthy and herbal after the grassiness. Lightly sugary. Belgian yeast spiciness that comes mainly in the form of clove and pepper. Otherwise clean. Very nice. 4.0 T: Again, this is has a clean neutral maltiness with big hops and spicy yeast. Big grassy flavor. Very low bitterness. Pepper and clove. Superbly drinkable. The hops are potent, but donít overstep their place. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly spritzy with a good creaminess. Super smooth. 4.5 D: This is a damn fine beer. Incredibly drinkable. Hops do their job and do it well, but donít make the beer a cloying undrinkable hop bomb that some of the more citrus oriented IPAs do. This is a wonderful beer and a must try.

Acknud (1072) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Very nice and full in the mouth. Murky pour and soft head, Musty, piney aroma. Sharp, resin, piney bitterness that doesnít leave a load of crap in your mouth.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a small soapy head that recedes slowly and leaves some delicate lacing on the sides. Aroma is spectacular, just full of juicy citrus hops, pineapples and oranges, pithy grapefruit, but with a definitely fruity ester note in the background from the Belgian yeast. But, to be clear, this smells much more like an American IPA. Taste is certainly a step below the aroma with the juicy fruit coming through but much less aggressively as in the aroma. Plenty of malts and more spicy than the aroma as well. Mouthfeel is smooth with soft carbonation and prickly with hop juices on the palate. This was definitely a pleasant surprise as itís one of the better Belgian IPAs Iíve tasted recently. The taste didnít quite deliver the promise of the aroma but that was a pretty serious promise.

12oz bottle from Three Cellars. Pours hazed golden orange with a white head. Aromas of citra hops, tropical fruit, and some sweet and spicy yeast notes. Flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, yeast, sweet malts, and moderate hop bitterness. Malt base takes over beer a little, but enough hop and citrus flavor to make it enjoyable.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery a few months ago and now from a bottle. Both are delicious with the big difference being more of a bready aroma coming through on tap and more citrus presenting itself from the bottle. Both ways, Bedlam has a snappy bitter bite to it and a full body. A very good brew.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you sir! Hazy golden amber color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of pineapple, citrus. Taste is nicely balanced lightly spiced fruity grass and brown bread. Very nice and easy drinking.

Frank (2387) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Nice hoppy nose but a bit sweet and sloppy. Pine and herbs in the nose. Cloud orange with a long lasting white head and lots of lace. This is ok but lacking bitterness in the finish which hurts drinkability especially as it warms.
