COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A chaotic blend of Citra hops and Belgian-style yeast give this IPA aromas of passion fruit, a bright hop flavor and a plush finish.

I generally find AA beers too light in body, and close but not nearly dynamic enough representations of various styles. But after picking up a Fed Ex package across the street, made a rare visit to the brewpub, liked the Bedlam, and even took a six-pack home. What makes it really intriguing is an almost kerosene edge on the citrus/pine hops - -or something like the sharpness you get when you bite into the pine needles on your Xmas tree. It has a ílight richnessí that makes it both refreshing and substantial. Itís a bit like Bellís Hopslam without the syrupyness. Fresh and bright for the summer; complex in a snarky, biting sort of way (like the creature on the label), it is a satisfying and also rabidly playful concoction.

By far my favorite IPA as of current. It has a full but smooth flavor. Dominated by fruity undertones the musty aroma is lessend. With the use of Belgian hops the IPA hits your pallet smoother than traditional IPA and leaves a much cleaner aftertaste. Starting with an almost bubblegum flavor the beer transforms into a bitter citrus flavor that stays in your mouth till the next drink. Highly recommended

Tap at brewery. Pours light brown with orange throughout. Aroma is very piney, lots of tropical fruits. Taste is really nice, the Belgian flavor comes out and blends into the ipa very nicely, a great representation of this style. Overall, very well made.

ddemmingjr (784) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pours burnt orange, off white head that recedes. Belgian candy yeast, kiwi, strawberry bubblegum, caramel malts and toast. Similar flavor profile with the dry grain malt profile showing up in the finish. Richer bodied and almost chewy. Nice hop bitterness on the finish. Well balanced and pretty well done for a Belgian IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear yellow gold, ample light tan head. Fine. Sweet tropical fruit, light honey, maybe a hint of banana. Solidly bitter, almost equally sweet. Quite well balanced, long finish, medium body. Clean. Nice.

Hoppy, citrus and full. More of an orange citrus flavor, pours a very nice head out of the bottle.

maekchu (2771) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Caramel, fumes, and a little citrus. Medium dark amber color. Flavors of citrus, caramel, light sweet cake dough. Fades out pretty quickly. Thin-medium body. Nice enough. The Citra seems very understated.

Many thanks to Chris for this beer! Nice fresh Belgian Wit nose with fresh hops. The beer starts fresh but not too deep. Belgian Wit with nice smooth floralness. Fresh, smooth. Not too deep but nice. Fresh floral hops in the aftertaste with nice typical Belgian Wit aroma of yeast, coriander and citrus. Nice.
