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.

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.
