Bedlam! A chaotic blend of Citra hops and Belgian yeast give this IPA aromas of summer fruits and a bright hop presence with a plush finish.

Lovely honey color, light white foam. Smell heavy on bananas, a bit of bubble gum but not in cloying way -- it's what's most Belgian about this Belgian IPA. Slight carbonation on front of tongue. Exceptionally smooth, very easy to drink beer while still having a personality. Nothing challenging about this IPA but be careful because it does not taste like a 7.4 ABV. I will go back to this beer and serve to none beer lovers because of it's balance, despite the fact I don't think it's especially interesting. Nice.

Resin, citrus, tropical fruit, fresh cut grass, earthy hops, and cannabis form the complex aroma. Earthy notes win out. Smells like dirt.

Flavor reveals subtle notes of grapefruit and mango initially, but the earthy, grassy hop character overshadows the fruity hops early, carrying into a lightly bitter, pine dominant finish. Esters of peach and pear from the Belgian yeast add complexity. Lightly sweet caramel malt serves only to unite the esters and hops. Pineapple surfaces late.

Probably one of the most grassy, piney, and earthy beers I've had. Wish the esters and fruity hops were more prevalent, but a nice beer. In the end, the resiny, earthy hops are too much for my palate.

Pours a dark yellow with a foamy one finger head. Nice citrus hop smell. There is a mixing of other fruit smells including orange. The banana and clove breaks through the citrus hop taste. The banana taste lingers nicely. The mouthfeel is very smooth with the desired hop bite and clove/banana finish. The hops burst back up the nose slightly. Banana keeps coming back through. This was very good, and would put this in the ball park of Gumballhead head.
