Well balanced with banana notes and a nice hop finish.

Very malty IPA. Quite well balanced, to me. Not an in-your-face blast of hoppiness, but exceptionally tasty and easy to drink. Maybe more of an American Pale Ale, than an IPA.

I could drink this all day long.

Bold yellow body crowned with a very thick, sticky head. Fruity scent; marmalade; deep yet subtle malt notes. Bread-y grain flavors meld with a bold, bitter hop kick; slight ester-y hints. Tingly mouthfeel; medium bodied, smooth, semi-dry finish.

Solid malt-forward body equally balanced with a nice, lingering hop bitterness. Rich and full-flavored. A really nice offering from Elevation.

Pours a tofee gold with a white head. Aroma needs to warm up to truly shine, but once it does it becomes very inviting. Bready, some lemon, lime and orange rind, floral, and a touch of grass. Flavor was grainy, toffee and bready, lemon, lime, and orange, grassy, and floral.. Mild bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy, some activity in the mouthfeel. Overall, a nice IPA that has grown on me the more I have drank it. They do themselves a huge disservice by comparing it to a West Coast IPA, but I think its really nice for what it is.

new in the 16oz. bottle four packs. this ipa pours a clear caramel color with a sudsy off white head about two inches tall, but it dies down a bit after a few minutes. sexy lacing left behind though. nose is more English malt than I expected, caramel sweet, dry, zesty hopping. flavor is different for an ipa, less hop assertive than American styles usually go, lots of malt in the front, but its off a little, or foreign to me, not sure which, the more I drink it the more I like it, but theres a flavor I cannot place for the life of me. fortunately it gives way to a nice bitter hop flavor that also has a touch of fruit to it, maybe dried apricots or something. long lasting bitter finish is intense and enjoyable. this beer is all over the place, but I think it does come together in the end. lighter body and soft carbonation are assets in this case, uniting the caramel malt with the pungent hops, it just works. the first one was good, we'll see how the other three go down, but this is pretty easy drinking. overall a nice drinker from elevation. first ive seen from them not in the black diamond series, and I like it. the packaging rocks with the 16oz. bottles too. pick some up if its at your local, quite good.
