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.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bomber from Perrys Liquor in Livermore, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a 4 finger foamy off-white head. Aromas of citrus and malt and Belgian yeast/spice. Body is creamy full with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly funky/spicy with enough hop to go way bitter. It has everything - grapefruit/resin/spice/caramel. The malt seems very unroasted. On a blind test I’d say Belgian Strong Ale. Very interesting. Extremely good.

A: The pour is a standard orangish-amber color with a finger’s worth of white head. S: A very herbaceous and almost woody nose. Certainly quite pungent but seems to be lacking the typical hop aromas and a strong note of rosemary overwhelms everything else. T: The strong herbal note that was present in the nose does not translate to the flavor (perhaps thankfully). The hops provide a very sharp and nearly harsh bitterness. Some oranges and a bit of fruity esters to try to balance things out. M: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation and a bitterness that really sticks around. D: Overall, I much preferred Wrath to this, although it was a bit past its prime. The bitterness was a bit too sharp for me and the nose I did not find all that appealing.
