Notes: 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.

This beer is by far my favorite IPA it has great notes of hops and citrus without being too overpowering or heavy. There is no bad aftertaste and it has a good level of carbonation.

Billowy head and very cloudy. Aromas of pineapple, melon, fruity bubblegum, and mild yeast. Taste of hop, bitter fruit and mashed overripe bananas. Feel has a dry hop finish. Very dense yet clean. Nice balance of yeast and hop with mild malt undertone. I once tried having this after dinner and it's too filling. This is a meal in itself. Aroma is the winner here.

Tasty. Decent nose. Hoppy, but it's a Belgian so it doesn't finish like a regular IPA. Has a bit of a cask aftertaste.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and copper orange in color with a half finger, off-white head. Sub-par retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Not much for lacing aside from the odd spot or two.

Smell - Slight citrus and spice with a strong undertone of mango and green banana funk.

Taste - Follows the nose. Spice and green banana with a bit of citrus hoppiness. Light, slightly toasty and caramel malt undertone. Some nuttiness. Yeasty Belgian funk lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a dry, slightly flat finish.

Overall - Decent, but a bit too 'Belgian' heavy for my liking. Not enough assertive hop bite.

Super hoppy smell. Citra hop with Belgian yeast in the description. On the Milwaukee riverfront. Very bitter.
