I'm not one to write many reviews, but this beer justified an exception. With being a huge IPA/DIPA fan and reading all of the reviews, I had high hopes for this beer. I generally compare every IPA that I run across to Surly Furious, as that for me, is my #1 IPA.
A- Elevated looks just like an IPA should. The head is spot on for an IPA and there is plenty of lacing.
S- The smell is of tropical fruits, pine and citrus. I'm excited... but I've been down this road many times where I've been stoked about a beer, only to be let down by the taste.
T- In a word: AMAZING! When I took my first sip, I immediately thought "FURIOUS!" The tropical and citrus fruits shine on this, and there is just enough malt to balance it all out.
M- This is creamy and smooth. The drinkability on this is off the charts!
O- This is a fantastic beer and well deserving of the high marks it gets. I'm not sure in a blind taste test that I could distinguish between (my beloved) Furious and Elevated. Quite frankly, I'm a little shocked there aren't more comparisons of the two in these reviews. Neither Surly or La Cumbre distribute here, so I will have to (gladly) keep trading for these. If you're reading this, take my advice and go get this beer! You will not be disappointed!
