Tried this beer at the brewery and was very surprised. This is a very well balanced APA. A boatload of hops on the nose and excellent malt backbone. Bitterness is very smooth.
Head disapated quickly but left heavy lacing on the glass. Hop aroma is strong. Definitely dry hopped to accentuate the nose.
Color is a light amber. Medium body/mouthfeel. A little on the sweet side vs others but when matched to the hops it's excellent.
Kind of a Pliny but without the dank hop character.

Poured from the tap into a wine style tasting glass.
Appearance- Beer pours a golden amber with a ring of carbonation around the sides of the glass. Lacing clings lightly and sticks to the sides leaving a slight spiderweb on the glass.
Smell- Hops and malt smell to be quite balanced! Piney and rustic. Tree frogs may be a fitting name. Malts are a good balance of two-row and Maris Otter.
Taste- Fruity, spicey and pine. Malt is balanced and creamy. My IPA freak friends may hat me for this, but I like balance. Pine dominates but rides along with the malt very well. Superb.
Mouthfeel- Creamy, piney, balanced, well carbonated, and medium bodied. Just like it should be.
Drinkability- Just to test I had to take the rest of the glass to the dome. Smooth and refreshing all the way down. A very nice IPA from Elevator.

this beer pours a foggy apricot with a very thick head that laces very well throughout. it has slightly citrus smell with a noticable malt hint. the taste follows a similar path. the citrus notes are more prominent in the taste but are still followed by some maltiness. the hop finish has a solid bite to it. i wouldn't guess this one is 7.6 abv. the mouthfeel is carbonated and leaves it slightly sticky. overall this is a sweeter than most IPAs but it is just what i like. i dont think there are too many better values than this one. this is one of my go to brews. and this is an IPA...

Pours a light orange with a frothy white head that fades fast. The smell is very citrusy up front, orange and grapefruit. The flavor follows the smell, more citrus than hops, but nice and flavorful. The taste isn't sweet, and has a small bitter finish that lingers for awhile. A nice chewy mouthfeel, medium body, very smooth. Overall a flavorful beer, different take on an IPA, but definitely a good beer that can be a nice change for a hophead.

Received from cosmonick as an extra. (Cheers!)
Poured from 12oz bottle into imperial pint.
Aroma: Fairly simple, but enticing aroma. Hops go from piney to pineapple. Malt is sweet like honey.
Appearance: Hazy golden-orange body. Nice three-fingered bright white, billowy head settles to a thick, rocky collar of foam. Clumpy lacing clings to the side of the glass.
Flavor: Sweet mandarin orange initially, then pineapple, then honey. Also noticing some apple and even cherry. A very fruity profile for an IPA. An enjoyable, substantial bitterness is there at the end.
Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation and medium body. Hops are only slightly drying.
Overall: Some might not appreciate fruity sweetness in an IPA, and, generally, I'm the same if it's syrupy/cloying. In this case, though, Elevator does a good job working all of the hop and malt flavors together. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

Nice honey colored pour with little head. Some residual foam tracing. Initial hoppy bitterness resolved quickly to a smooth, almost Pale Ale calm. Certainly not an over hopped rendition so common in American IPAs.
I keep trying to put my finger on the aroma and I can only equate it to fresh cut lumber. Flavor of lemon orange come to mind. Ignore the previous review the this is not a true IPA, it most certainly is. Youngn's sometimes forget IPAs did not originate in this country and that hoppier is not necessarily better.
If you're in Columbus, give it a go.

Another good beer from Ohio. Pours a hazy dull dark gold color with a big white head. Good head retention and good lacing. Fine looking IPA.
Strong aroma: Piney hops with some floral aroma as well. Nice
Taste is good as well. Piney hops with some citrus and floral hops as well. Caramel malts take a back seat, but they balance things out some. A nice bitter beer, but not a total hop bomb.
Mouthfeel is crisp. Nice bitterness. Maybe a bit thin but still good. No hint of the 8% abv,
This is a good solid IPA. A bit strong for swilling in mass quantities, but you won't know this from the taste.

S: Super hoppy and bitter aroma.
T: Amazing hoppy flavor with each sip being more bitter than the last.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation
O: Awesome IPA – had about 5 or 6 of these
