Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

4.15/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Thanks go out to klikger for throwing this in our trade. Review from notes...

A- Pours a a copper amber color. One and a half finger light tan head retains very well before capping the beer. Nice sticky ringy lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Big fruity hops in the front of the aroma! Nice light yeasty smell with almost light spicing behind it. Orange peel and light almost clove in the tail end of the aroma. Overall, this beer smells fantastic and made my mouth water as I smelled it.

T- Fruity hops right off the bat collide with some light orange peel. There is a nice sweet caramel malt in the middle of this beer that fades into a light yeasty and spiced flavor. Some light bitter hops in the ending.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Light citrus hops and sweet malt left on the palate with a bubblegum like aftertaste from the yeast. Alcohol was a bit drying on the palate but nothing over the top. Beer flavors were settle and well blended together.

D- This was a very well balanced beer that I want more of. I am really surprised that a Belgian IPA can taste so good. I will be looking for this one again if they decided to make it again. First time beer for this company and I like what I have tasted so far!

Poured from a bottle into tulip

A - Pours a wonderful orange color with about 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.

S - The citra hop really shines here. Pineapple, mango, apple, orange peel. Bubblegum and traditional Belgian yeast come through very apparently as well. Quite a treat to the nose.

T - Somewhat similar to the nose. Green apple, bubblegum, pineapple, pear, other light fruits and Belgian yeast come through. Bitterness is up there. I'd imagine IBUs in the 90s or so. Very balanced and easy drinking. No alcohol or heat. My new favorite Belgian IPA!

O - This beer blew me away for the style. The only other Belgian IPA I've had that comes close is Lagunitas Little Sumpin Wild, but I haven't had Duvel yet. If you live in Wisconsin, don't hesitate upon purchasing a sixer of this stuff. Easy drinking and flavorful: everything you would want in a Belgian IPA.
