mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Hazy orange beer with decent foamy head that disappears quickly. Faint, but bright hop aroma of ripe citrus and a hit of nutty roast. Just a hint of hefe aroma - candy and bannana-that pops up, then disappears, alpong with a mushy lager malt smell. Slightly aqueus feel, slightly silky. Very bitter to start, alpha hop bitterness, as well as roasty bitterness, surprising from the light color. There’s a lot to it, lots of different layers. Some hint of wood aging, and some whisky flavor. Bitterness fades fast, followed my a lager-ish maltiness with strong roasty flavor. Finishes suprisingly clean, just a bit of bitter aftertaste on the top of the palate. Very interesting beer, almost tastes like a medium strength ipa mixed with an oak aged stout. Each sip brings something different. The complexity definitely fits the name.

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle - clear dark amber with a slim white head. Hoppy piney aroma, sweet malts. Sweet malts in the taste, citrus, hoppy bitterness, alcohol notes. Long and late bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, nicely balanced. Very nice.

villevav (210) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Kuparinruskea pintahiivaolut, joka muodostaa kaadettaessa paljon isokuplaista, joskin häviävää vaahtoa. Tuoksusta ei erota juuri muuta kuin "piikkään" humaloinnin ja hieman lakritsia. Makumaailma on hieman monipuolisempi: maku alkaa humalaisena, hedelmäisyys ja humalan aromi lepää hetken kielen päällä ja poistuu nopeasti jättäen suuhun anismaisen katkeran jälkimaun. Maku on jokseenkin yksiulotteinen etenkin kun otetaan huomioon, että kyseessä on IPA, jossa on näinkin paljon voltteja. Maun yksitoikkoisuutta korostaa suuntuntuman raskaus, joten Chaos Theorystä ole liiemmin kesäpäivän virkistäjäksi. Ei pärjää kyllä millään esim. saman panimon Punk IPA:lle.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Leeds. Pours a clear amber, finger of head. Aroma is peachy, grapefruit, resinous hops. Taste is similar, but without a huge punch. Quite malty caramel-ish, too. Medium body, fairly dry finish. It’s adequate, but nothing too special.
