Had 3 pints of Chaos on tap (back to back) at the Blind Pig in Athol MA. Not exactly a 'session' beer, but it's tasty and easy enough to drink to qualify in my book.

Appearance - probably the weakest part of the beer. It's light gold in color with minimal head (less than a finger) - although it does leave nice lacing on the glass as you drink it.

Smell - Fruity, particularly grapefruit and citrus, but there's some pine and caramel there too.

Taste - The best part of this beer. Very grapefruit forward taste, although not what I'd call a grapefruit bomb. Also strong citrus, and then caramel malt body and what I consider the right amount of bitterness, then it finishes clean which makes me want another sip (gulp!). This is a delicious beer that's nicely balanced and completely masks the ABV.

Mouth - The right amount of carbonation, but a little thin (vs. syrupy). I like this as it leaves me wanting another sip.

Overall I was very impressed. Makes me want to visit Backlash to see what else they're making. I consider Chaos a nice midpoint between a bitter West Coast IPA and the fruitier East Coast IPAs. (1,120 characters)
