Bomber into snifter glass

A- deep copper color with nice thin head
S- tropical fruity hops. Mango and citrus
T- huge mango hops. A bit acidly, but awesome. Very nice use of hops for a single IPA
M- nice and solid. Just the right amount of thickness and carb

O- great IPA here. Smell doesn't do the huge taste justice

4.53/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint, 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 6.5% abv and there is a brief description of the beer.

Appearance: The body has a light golden color with good clarity (the second glass was very hazy) and some active carbonation. Sitting on top is a thick just off white head which settles down to a wispy thin film covering that laces up the edge of the glass. Some of which hangs on the sides of the glass.

Smell: The aroma is a little light overall but it has very nice juicy and fruity hops over pale bready maltiness. Pineapple and canned fruit cocktail notes stand out.

Taste / Palate: The flavor is packed with sweet juicy hops backed by supportive light bready malt sweetness. It has notes of pineapple juice with canned fruit cocktail (peaches, pears, green grapes, about 3 cherries per can and sugar water syrup) and a splash of lemony citrus. This turns to citrusy hop bitterness in the finish which lingers for just a short time. I like that it doesn't linger too long. It just helps to remind me that this is an IPA and that I should take another sip. The body and carbonation feel just right and very drinkable.

Trippy 22oz bottle served in pint glass. Tempted to give it bonus appearance points just for the tiger on the label. Beer pours orange amber, medium haze, with an ample yellowish white head. Super tropical fruit aroma, with passion fruit, guava. They really nailed it with the aroma hops in this one. Flavor is more direct, with a steady bitterness typical of Elysian and their Manic IPAs. Malt backbone is not completely absent and clearly a secondary player. Overall pretty enjoyable, mainly due to the fantastic smell. Not all that great balance-wise, but still probably better than most of Elysian's Manic series (probably my second favorite after Space Dust, so far).

On tap at the Local Taphouse for their 4th of July 2014 US Tap Takeover.

Pours a pale orange gold, bubbly white head with slight haze. Decent lace; looks alright.

Hoppy on the nose. Resinous and piney with citrus as well, hugely bitter-smelling but nice caramel, cake batter malt coming through as well. It knows what it is. Surprisingly sweet but actually not bad.

Taste is hoppy, and yeah, IPA-esque. Pleasant with lots of citrus zest and pith upfront, gets odd caramel toffee notes midway before resinous bitter finish. Yeah, pretty decent West Coast IPA, amusingly unpretentious in the world of double and triple IPAs.

Quite a harsh texture from the hop oils. Decent body though.

Bit bitter, but nice enough flavours.

Serving type: on-tap
