Released yesterday at the brewery.
Thanks to Jeremy for meeting us at the release party... Two pitchers of this disappeared fast!
Pours a deep, glowing orange. Hazed with yeast sediment, it becomes opaque as it settles. Frothy dense cap of foam, delicate crown of lacing rings the inside of the glass. The initial head was about 3", but it settled to a skim and a cluster of larger bubbles to one side.
Melon, tangerine, mango, and orange waft out of the glass, a certain spiciness from the hops also. Slightly sweet pastry aroma too as it warms up. The dank stickiness of fresh hops is unmistakable here.
Lush fruity flavors, orange peel and mango, with some pale malt breadiness in the middle. Finishes dry and fairly mellow. Body is light, extremely smooth and juicy with a lingering residual sticky bitterness. The resemblance to grapefruit juice is uncanny, though Bedlam has carbonation and malt flavor to boot. Pure nectar. Very hop forward, lush dankness abounds. "Perilously drinkable" in the words of the late Michael Jackson.
Seek this out fresh, don't settle for anything less.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
