Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Well hazed dark orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is good and plenty of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Sweet and citrusy. Orange and lemon really stand out. Bready yeast with caramel notes. Mildly floral. Focus is really the citrusy hops.

3.75 T: Tastes like the nose. Citrusy orange and lemon. Bready yeastiness. Decent neutral malt backbone with hints of caramel.

3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and quite smooth.

3.75 D: Wasn't expecting much as I've never even heard of the brewery, but this turned out to be a pretty good beer.

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.

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!
