Pouring to an orange/golden color, this Ohio- brewed IPA is a fragrant one, with a perfume/citrus and floral nose that certainly commands your attention. The white head of foam is quite handsome at first, but it does settle into a thin coating in due time. The beer has an active level of carbonation that helps add to its refreshment.

This beer’s taste is just as attention- getting as its nose. The flavors present include citrus and other fruit like pineapple, toasted malt, some pine, a little bit of alcohol, and some peppery hops. Some bready malts attempt to keep the hops in check but, try as they may, the taste keeps going back to the flavor of citrus and other fruit from the hop contributions.

I agree with others who claim that the flavors become more pronounced if the beer is allowed to warm just a tad. Around 50 degrees, it was still cool enough to offer refreshment and the flavors were more pronounced than when taken straight from the refrigerator at 40 degrees.

This isn’t a huge IPA like many others. It is actually medium to thin in body and even its triple hopping is not enough to push its hoppiness into another galaxy, like some IPA are prone to do. I like that the brewer’s didn’t overdo the hops, but I also acknowledge that this beer is certainly worthy of the IPA label. It’s a good one, and one of the better IPA I have tried in a while.

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!

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

Picked up recently in Columbus, OH (was told that it had come in relatively recently considering the proximity of the brewery to the store)

The beer pours a dull copper color with a thin, creamy off-white head that laces. The nose is...absent. Possibly a subtle citrus, but I cant say for sure. The taste is equally unrewarding and underwhelming. There is are heavily muted hops upfront followed by a stifled sweetness. I suspect Zeelandy hops comprise most of the hop profile (with their onion and cheesy weirdness), but I really can't taste much to verify. The beer becomes slightly more appealing as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, effervescent with a hint of sweetness and twinge of lemon rind bitterness in the finish. This is really an unimpressive beer that I wouldn't even call a pale ale let alone an IPA.

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.
