3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 ’light richness’ that makes it both refreshing and substantial. It’s a bit like Bell’s 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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

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.

Many thanks to Chris!! Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy tan head. The smell is yeast, spice, some citrus. The taste is yeast, spice, citrus ending crisp and dry. Light in body with nice carbonation.
