Much thanks to hopdog for bringing this growler back from WI per my request...
Appears a transparent, light gold with a small white cap that slowly fades out into a mild cap, and hearty collar. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of yeast, apricot, tangerine, overipened bananas, pears, honey, and melon.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a citrusy, tropical fruit salad sweetness that is pretty muched balanced during the enjoyment.
Mouthfeel is semi-sweet, honey lingering, medium bodied, warming but the abv is hidden for the most part. I wouldn't have guessed it was almost 10% abv.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Side Door Grill. Totally enjoyed this. It drinks like an American barleywine -- hop-forward with a massive undergirding of malt sweetness.

The aroma: Wish it came in a snifter, but Side Door serves all its 10 oz. pours in these little flared out glasses that are like a mini-pilsner glass. So the aroma was almost completely lost to the light breeze of the patio. I covered the glass with my hand a few minutes and produced a pretty complex aroma, fruity, heavy sweet sugar and sulfur and cream. A handsome pour, though, to be sure, a tasty-looking copper haze, with a soft head w/ sticky lacing.

In the mouth the flavor is much more complex. Even w/ the bulldozer hops up front, there's a banana-taffy sweetness and a bready malt, with an alcoholic brightness bridging the two warring sides. And despite the nice sharp carbonation, there's sort of a creaminess too (or is that just the seriousness of the malt?)

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a HUGE, dense, white head that has good persistence and laces nicely. Sweet malt and floral hops combine with a slightly banana/clove yeast aroma. Radiant, crystal clear color . Starts with a sweet, sweet maltiness and rich booziness. Builds into a nice estery, booziness, a touch of hop bitterness as this all peaks, and then it smooths (still boozey) into velvety malt.

Overall, not bad. MINE HAS NO YEAST, so that REALLY dings the flavor. I've had this in the years before, with the yeast, and it's great. I had it at the brewery this year, with the yeast, and that was great, too. The same problem hit Bedlam. I had talked to someone at Ale Asylum who said it is that the new tanks are bigger, so apparently this results in way less yeast in all their brews this year. Bedlam was also yeast-free when I bought bottles...[grumble]. A huge knock to the flavor.
I will re-review this once I get a bottle with yeast in it...
