Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a nice cap of off-white foam.
Aroma-Citrussy hop notes
Taste-Spicy, toasted malt, citrus/floral hops. A bit unbalanced and rough around the edges, but pretty tasty, and with the body and flavor to stand up to any spicy dish.

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.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at my cousin’s wedding in Athens Ohio

A: Pours an orange hue with a white head that slowly dissipates in to a wispy lace.

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

Bottle > Sensory Pils Glass

A - Clear deep gold with a finger of foamy off white head, no real lacing.
S - Sweet malt, candied orange, booze.
T - Spicy hop resin, syrupy sweet sugary malt mess with alcohol. Vile.
M - Chewy cloying sweetness.
O - Elevator should have just turned this into a barleywine, because thats pretty much where this beer was headed, but overall this is a gross sweet mess that I want nothing to do with. This one is headed to the drain!

A- Hazy orange amber with golden highlights. Nice off white head but not too wrinkly or hoppy looking. awesome retention and ample lacing.

S- big citrus aroma, mainly orange, grapefruit, pineapple and very floral. Hints of pine and like peel with a toasty sweet malt background. Becomes more savory as it warms.

T- nicely balanced flavor. Hops are earthy and almost tomato on the palate with plenty of citrus and pine bitterness. There's just enough malt sweetness to hold everything down. All manner of softened tropical fruits with a pinch of cinnamon malt spice and peppery at the end. Lingering leafy and grapefruit hop flavor in the finish.

MF- juicy slick feel with welcomed zesty carbonation. Bitterness is felt all over the palate and throat.

D- another good ipa coming out of my state. It's crazy how many breweries are popping up here lately.

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass

A- Super hazy golden orange color with frothy head that left no lace

S- Sweet/tart grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Big hoppy aroma with nice malt characteristics

T- Sweet grapefruit, peach, caramel, and some piney notes. Definitely pretty balanced for an IPA but assertive bitterness on the finish

M- Very aggressively highly carbonated, dancing on my tongue carbonation, effervescent, finishes very dry. Not quick syrupy but a heavier body than your typical IPA which I think is from the higher ABV.

O- A good IPA with a bigger malt presence than many other IPAs.

3.68/5  rDev +3.1%

12oz bottle. Label reads 7.6% Alc by Vol.

A- Pours a hazy orange gold color with a thick white foam head that leaves good lacing.

S- Citrus hops and some light caramel malt in the back. The nose is nice and hoppy with an herbal quality.

T- Bitterness is very apparent initially with a fairly sweet finish. A little one dimensional as the flavor doesn't seem to show as many sides as the nose did. Not as much citrus and pine as the nose suggested. The alcohol is noticeable throughout.

M- Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O- A decent brew that borders the DIPA territory in terms of alcohol and bitterness. But it was lacking a bit more depth in the flavor profile.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. I picked this up on a trip to Columbus a while back, which is the only place I've seen Elevator for sale. This particular IPA is "triple hopped". Now, I assume they don't mean triple hopped in the same sense that Miller Lite is triple hopped!

Pours a pumpkin-amber color, with a three-finger head that reduces with loads of sticky lacing.

Smells fruity, resinous, buttery and yeasty. Hints of citrus, pine and malt are present.

Starts sweet and slightly malty, with a fresh orange-citrus taste. Slightly spicy and bitter, with hints of dandelion greens, hemlock and grass. Has a moderately hoppy finish.

Medium bodied, the bitterness of the hops leaves a bit of a pucker in the mouth. There's also a dry, tacky feeling left on the back of the tongue.

Like many IPA's, this is best fresh. I had this a few months ago, and frankly found it sweeter and hoppier then. Still, even with a couple of months age on it, it is still a decent IPA. Certainly this is the best Elevator beer I've had thus far, and given its small local audience, it is the one I'd recommend if you happen upon their bar in downtown Columbus.
