UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Picked up a store in Kohler, WI. Interesting IPA. Very citrusy hop aroma and flavor. Almost pepper/fruity taste in the malty yeastiness. I thought is was good but almost didn’t quite work for me. Sometimes harmonious in the mouth sometimes clashing flavors. Serving: Bottle

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast up front that falls to nice citrus and grassy hop notes. Taste is pretty much all the yeast esters, with some hop bitterness. Water profile is weird.

[8864-20161105] Tap. Fresh orange wood aroma. Hazy, dark orange amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter orange wood flavour has a long fruity hops finish. Medium-full body. Good. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7

12floz bottle, no freshness date, (goes for about $1.50 per unit). Bubblegum wafts through as I behold this copper colored Belgian influenced IPA. Feels like a medium-bodied ale that has complex flavor profile consisting of resiny oil, passion fruit, and touches of all spice. A very good beer. Especially if you so happen to be torn between wanting an IPA or a pale Belgian ale.

Aggiebob (1095) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle. It poured an orangy gold with an off-white head and some lacing. The aroma is citrus with notes of lemon and grapefruit with some peach in the flavor. The finish has some earthy dankness and moderate bitterness.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2016
2016-11-05. Lightly hazy dark orange body with modest off-white head and lace. 3++ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, muted citrus, light malt and Belgian character. Flavour is fairly bitter up front, moderate citrus, lingering bitterness and light alcohol. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Decent, but a bit brash at times for a brunch beer. 7/3+/7/3/14 On tap at Little Goat Diner, Chicago.

12 oz bottle via trade from notes. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, citrus and tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, light bitterness, decent fruity Belgian IPA.

It seems like the Belgian-style IPA is becoming every brewer’s pet project, but Ale Asylum makes it a thing of beauty. Bedlam! pours a gold color and has a pungent, fruity nose. It starts off bright and bitter with grapefruit and passion fruit. It gradually transitions more toward spicy and bready toward the finish but the bitterness remains. Crisp, dry textures. Excellent.

tia (2130) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Tap at Riverhouse. Light orangey amber with a decent head. /fresh piney aroma with some dank undercurrents. Flavor is a mix of hops with a hint at the Belgian.

muzzlehatch (4950) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle at Sugar River Pizza Company in New Glarus, WI, served in an iced pint glass. Been a while since I’ve gotten anything in an iced glass - or gotten a bottle at a restaurant, but this place has no draught beer, surprisingly enough. Anyway it pours a thick, almost opaque rust-copper with a thick lasting off-white head...lightly sweet, pungent aroma with a bit of the farm but mostly resinous hops and a touch of orange...yeasty, doughy body is reasonably balanced in the sweet-hoppy characteristics and with some noticeable Belgian funk and dryness as well...very full, moderately carbonated - perhaps it could be just a wee touch fizzier and lighter in the mouthfeel - lightly peppery on the finish. Pretty solid though by no means great; after 2 of my last 3 AA experiences being pretty negative I’ve been wondering whether I should give up on them, but this was decent enough, just as I remember it from 2 or 3 years ago.
