I generally find AA beers too light in body, and close but not nearly dynamic enough representations of various styles. But after picking up a Fed Ex package across the street, made a rare visit to the brewpub, liked the Bedlam, and even took a six-pack home. What makes it really intriguing is an almost kerosene edge on the citrus/pine hops - -or something like the sharpness you get when you bite into the pine needles on your Xmas tree. It has a ’light richness’ that makes it both refreshing and substantial. It’s a bit like Bell’s Hopslam without the syrupyness. Fresh and bright for the summer; complex in a snarky, biting sort of way (like the creature on the label), it is a satisfying and also rabidly playful concoction.
Draft pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spice, citrus, fruit and grains. Taste is grapefruit, spice and grains. jbruner (4857) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2017
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. bwy (89) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2017

[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.

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 (10591) - 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. alexsdad06 (10486) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2016
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. MetalNHopHead (2018) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 6, 2016
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 (2228) - 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.
