COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chaotic yet hypnotic, Mayhem is a deliberate Double IPA, brewed and conditioned with a special Belgian yeast that contributes complexity and spice. Abundant American hops offer grapefruit, pine, must and mint, which play off the fullness and sweetness of pale malts then provide a biting yet enticing finish.

Mayhem Double IPA accents the complex spice combinations found in Thai, Indian, Cajun, Morrocan, Mexican and Southwest American cuisines as well as BBQ marinades, dry rubs and sauces.

Mayhem creates Mayhem.

Hazy yellow-orange beer with an active white head. Grass and herb dimensions to the hop aroma profile. Lightly floral, cannabis. Flavors are malty and sweet with a pretty immediate hop presence and an initially bitter but overall rather clean, dry finish.

mcberko (8550) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours slightly hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is huge on Belgian spices, orange rind and citrusy hops - wonderful mix. Flavour begins with orange rind, coriander and other spices, yeast, and finishes with spicy hops, and a sort of minty finish. Unique and most excellent.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 7, 2011
12/10/10 notes: Bottle in SF. Pours a murky brown color with a small head. Aroma has candied orange, ripe fruit and sweet malt. Flavor suggests hay, overripe orange, and vaguely metallic phenols. Odd. Judging from previous reviews, there must be some serious batch discrepancy, or at the very least an inability for this beer to age.
