A-a golden orange with a fingers worth of white foam that sticks to the edge

S-pale bready malt and floral and citrus hops

T-similar to the smell with a large pale malt backbone with a large presence of grapefruit and a bit of piney hops

M-medium body, good prickly carbonation, bitter aftertaste

Overall a very enjoyable IPA that is worth a try if you find it

Elysian IPA is pretty pale on the color spectrum of beers that call themselves IPA. Clear golden-amber with a minimal white head that fades and leaves little lace.

Nice intensity on the nose with nectar and sweet citric hops. I'm partial to the very sweet smelling hops, and it plays nicely with discernible caramel malt. Really liking the aromas of this beer, it's like smelling a flower.

Immortal IPA is hoppy at the beginning, middle and finish of this beer. Grapefruit with some rind, sweet caramel and some honey in the middle. Long finish with significant bittering hops at the end without being over the top for me. Fairly low carbonation, medium body and a long finish top off a great balance.

Well crafted IPA, Elysian. I'm craving a second; alas this was the only Immortal IPA left behind in my fridge by a friend. I'm not prone to searching out beers, but I might have to make an exception and look around for more. Perhaps a long day made me appreciate it more, but this brew ended up being a sum greater than its parts for me.

Pours a dark cloudy gold with a small head. Nice lacing on the surface. Great hoppy smell. Citrusy, grapefruit. Big hop taste throughout. Some light malt in the background but not a lot. Bitter. Nice bitter hop aftertaste. Well carbonated. Medium to full bodied. Pretty easily drinkable. Very nice IPA. I really like the bitterness in this. Could have a few of these.

Got this at the LCBO this past summer.

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, off-white head with good retention. Gamboge orange, hazy, with lower levels of carbonation. Fades to a light wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains leaving some nice looking lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, caramel, toffee, floral notes with some light citrus aromas. Bold enough, but not quite impressive enough.

TASTE: English style IPA for sure. Pale malts, caramel and toffee flavors up front, with some floral hops at the finish. Bolder and lingering finish of toffee and caramel with an underlying hop bitterness the whole way through. Floral and some grassy bitterness. More forthcoming than the nose.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough, goes down smooth and finishes slightly sticky. Good feel.

OVERALL: A solid English style IPA with an enjoyable flavor profile. This style doesn't get the praise its American counterpart does, but as far as English IPA's go, this one is well worth checking out. Recommended.
