Notes from last weekend; my second taste of Elevator.

It looks good, a cloudy (unfiltered?) yellow-orange that's just a couple shades lighter than amber with a nicely sized and shaped head sticking around on top for a good while before a thick and compact foam drops good legging and some patching well down the glass.
There's both citrus and pine in the aroma with some pith to it. There's also a lightly herbal quality. Malts add a little sweetness to it but mostly breads. It's pretty well-attenuated but not fully nuanced or balanced.
The same goes for the flavor; something about the pith, the leafiness going a little too herbal, and the malt being a little too involved make it pretty good but a little short of great.
The body is medium, and the beer feels good with a consistent crispness, a smooth flow and a moderate carbonation.

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.

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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper, with a finger of slightly off-white colored head. This retains with some rich ringing, leaving back a creamy cascade of lace that hangs in foamy swathes down the sides of the glass. The aroma has a LOT of soft fruit flavor to it, which mixes with notes of caramel and bread from the malts to give this strong ripe stickiness in the nose that is undercut by herbal textures and some more assertive flavors of grapefruit and pine. The fruit and malt mostly control this though.

The taste is the same, with a little grapefruit flavor and pine up front that is then met by a wave of tropical fruit, sweet malt, and underlying herbal flavors before finishing a bit more assertively with notes of pith, spice, and resins on the tongue. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm creamy sharpness that then spreads out in the mouth into more of creamy slickness. Alcohol is pretty well hid for 8%.

Eh. This just put too much emphasis on fruit and malt here and not nearly enough on any kind of crisp hop flavors that would have taken this up to the next level. I don’t believe I even got a 1/3 of the way through the glass before I became bored with it. Not a very good example of the style at all.
