COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chaotic is the seasonal release we just couldnt let go of. A hop aficionado’s dream with so many additions that we had to redesign our brew logs to fit them all in. The light gold pour has a slight haze that betrays the extensive dry-hopping in each batch. This onslaught tags the entire spectrum of hop aromatics with an especially notable citrus medley including grapefruit and tangelo. Brewed by San Diego hopheads for San Diego hopheads, Chaotic is captivatingly so. Double dry-hopped for a huge hop aroma that includes Pine, Tangerine and Grapefruit. Great beer for first time IPA drinkers and seasoned hop heads. Medium-full body and a balancing sweetness help keep the high ABV in line. Hops: Chinook, Cascade, Columbus, Centennial. Malt: 2-Row Barley, Dextrin Malt.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Red-orange body, off white head. Ripe tropical fruit, a bit of melon, light caramel, long bitter finish. Nice.

chinchill (4267) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2016
12 oz can into a Sierra Nevada glass. Pours with a clear copper colored body topped by a decent off-white head. Moderately strong hoppy aroma with a strong hop flavor favoring citrus notes -- lots of citrus. Ample malt here too, leaving the beer just moderately+ bitterness and adding some caramel and faint baked bread. Still, this is markedly hop dominant, as expected for style. Lingering, fairly strong, bitter grapefruit peel aftertaste. Medium body with medium-high carbonation and a dry finish.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 10, 2015
On tap, 33cl. Clear ruby with a creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted caramel, green apples, resin, alcohol. Sweet and bitter, with a heavy malt backbone and a stinging bitterness. Pleasant, but somewhat amateurish.

Burk. Söt nästan för mycket. Bred smak med torkade fikon o dadlar. Smaken håller hela vägen fram till det bästa med ölen, eftersmaken. Finfin eftersmak.

Wolfbass (1101) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 29, 2015
Appena aperta la lattina, è un esplosione di pompelmo. Anche in bocca è decisamente agrumata, con un finale non molto amaro, che nasconde benissimo l’alta percentuale alcolica. Mi garba

MarcoDL (4140) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Draft @ beertemple. Aroma of strong boozy caramel and peach. Taste has peach at first, but than the malt kicks in, with lots of caramel punch. Some pine as well. Nice, but a bit too malty.

MadRobin (2814) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. can. Cloudy, orange-amber with a 2-finger khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus and some tropical fruit. Taste of pine resin, orange, caramel, grapefruit, pineapple and tropical fruit. Bitter resin, tropical fruit and caramel are the most prominent and lingering flavored. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastica birra dai profumi estremamente fruttati tropicali e citrici allo stesso tempo che si ripresentano anche al gusto dove un equilibrio di sapori finiscono con un amaro molto durevole. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85
