4.18/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Well hazed peach color. One finger of frothy/creamy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Quite hoppy and in a way that is befitting of the brew. This is super grassy. It's probably the only brew I've ever had that is both extremely hoppy and not citrusy at all. Earthy and herbal after the grassiness. Lightly sugary. Belgian yeast spiciness that comes mainly in the form of clove and pepper. Otherwise clean. Very nice.
4.0 T: Again, this is has a clean neutral maltiness with big hops and spicy yeast. Big grassy flavor. Very low bitterness. Pepper and clove. Superbly drinkable. The hops are potent, but don't overstep their place.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly spritzy with a good creaminess. Super smooth.
4.5 D: This is a damn fine beer. Incredibly drinkable. Hops do their job and do it well, but don't make the beer a cloying undrinkable hop bomb that some of the more citrus oriented IPAs do. This is a wonderful beer and a must try.

12 oz. bottle, with a space for an enjoy by date, but it is left blank. My third beer from Ale Asylum, expectations are high based on this beer's good ratings.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a coppery burnt orange colored body with some dark flecks of sediment floating around and three big fluffy fingers of off-white head. Nice big scattered lacing. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is comprised of a prominent fruity / earthy yeast presence, and a nice dosage of fresh piney / tropical hop smells. Grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel & rye malt, and some bubblegum / clove / spice presence.
T - Taste follows the nose - a good pairing of fruity bubblegum yeast, clove, apple, pear, grapefruit, pine, and some cracked pepper / rye malt / caramel malt to round things off.
M - Feel is super smooth and creamy. Bitterness is light, but present. Green apple stickiness, bready, & malty. Mild warming alcohol presence.
Overall, a good representation of the style. Very nice balance, depth, and duration of flavor. I would have it again, and I look forward to more from Ale Asylum.
Ale Asylum Bedlam ---4/5.
