Another whim buy during my Ohio buying trip. The pour is cloudy and a dreary orange color with a thick white head. The aroma is off putting with a lot of booze and stale hops. There is no indication of the age of this bottle but I'm guessing its older. The taste follows being almost spoiled tasting and very stale. This is just not a good beer. Will try again if I can find what I believe to be a fresh bottle.

Appears copper hued with a slight haze, forms white cloudy textured head. Leaves behind speckled lacing. Aroma citric dank earthy hops plus caramelized malts, those malts carry over into the flavor. Very malt heavy IPA, citric earthy dank hops are a bit muddled in the experience! Pelletized hops make this a bit cloying with the hops and malts battling a really poorly executed IPA I will not have another. Overall not impressed with any Elevator offerings!

12oz bottle into a tulip

A: Pours a very hazy yellowish orange with a nice white head that fades to a ring and leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is very weak amounts of sweet caramel malt and a tiny bit of hops. Could be old.

T: The taste is slightly better than the nose but still not as hoppy as it should be. There is a slight hop bitterness at the begining and a sweet caramel malt flavor in the middle. The finish shows signs of a grapefruit hop bitterness as well. You can tell this wants to be super hoppy but it's being held back by the malt sweetness.

M: The feel is medium bodied and kind of creamy.

O: Without a bottle date I can't tell if this is old or just mediocre. Could be both although it shows signs of good flavors.

Pours an amber color with a one finger head that gives way to some nice lacing down the glass. The nose has a nice two row malt backbone with piney and earthy hops faintly present. The hop present isn't big and bold like some other ipa's. The taste is the same, it has great balance between the malt and the pine and earthy hops, however, it is missing that nice hop bitterness that you get with other ipa's. The taste seemed more subdued than I was expecting. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated and slightly creamy. The drinkability is good, its an easy drink for an ipa. Overall it is a very drinkable beer but for hop heads its going to disappoint, more balanced than big and bold.

12 oz bottle into tulip.

A: Hazy amber golden color with an inch's topping of frothy off-white head. Thick, webbed lacing left behind.

S: Very citrusy; lots of grapefruit and pineapple. Hints of pine come out, there's a light woodiness, and a faint, grainy cracker/biscuit malt note in there.

T: Balanced; pretty sweet and malty, with a hint of alcohol. The citrus flavors from the nose come through here too, although the finish has more pine flavor.

M: Thin-bodied with lively carbonation adding most of the body. Slightly sticky, with a dry finish.

O: It's an alright beer, and goes down pretty easily for its ABV, but there's not a lot that stands out to me. I'd consider giving it a second chance though, especially if I see it on tap.

deep gold to amber in color, slight haze, nice carbonation with a real nice one finger creamy white head with fairly good retention.
At first the aromas were popping out of the glass. I got citrus, a little caramel, and some grass notes.
I tasted tart grapefruit, burnt grain, and it was kind of boozy and overly sweet.
It was tart then bitter with a pretty sweet aftertaste.
A decent IPA. For me the flavors didn't work real well together. Next time I'm in Columbus I'll look for this on tap.
