C'mon Pittsburgh, go out and drink for we are fortunate to have Elysian showing up, so far I've had a Rapture, The Immortal, and Dragontooth Stout which have been seriously good for what they are. This beer in particular, was crazy drinkable. I had it on tap at Mad Mex Robinson, during happy hora. Pours a bright glowing orange with a shady of haze settling in, fine white head doesn't form very thick but it's there. Aromatics offer up citric glazed hops, candied malts play a nice interplay with a dry yeast component and light biscuit pale malt breadiness. Flavors complement each other nicely, on it's own I got upfront citrus, pine, herbal hop qualities that were balanced nicely with bread dough in a sour dough light and fluffy aspect with some dry powdered yeast cake notes in there. Very bright pleasing on the palate, complemented their southwest wings nicely, cilantro lime jalapeno mixed well with the spicy citric hops. Mouthfeel has the welcoming oily slick mouthfeel found in American IPAs, with moderate smooth flowijng levels of carbonation. Quite honestly this could be a go to IPA, especially with happy hour pricing, but even their bottles are reasonable...Dragontooth a mere 7 bucks for a bomber.

Pours a light amber color with a rich head that sticks to everything, including the surface. Of course, I could do without the mulch-like floaties. 4.0

Smells like... ummm... pale grains and grassy hops? That's it? I'm not getting any citrus or floral notes. 2.0

Taste is weakly leaf hops and primarily pale malts. Not so good. I'd like to find out when this was dated. Some back half bitterness is the only semblance of what was or is called an IPA. 2.5

Decent heft to body and comparable carb. Minus a bit for the yeast chunks. 3.5

I am out on Elysian. Struck out thrice. No more. Let the idiots buy 'em. 2.5

A - Poured with a straw yellow body that had some carbonation bubbles...the head stood two fingers tall and was white in color...it receded to a thin cap and left decent lacing

S - Grain and biscuit malt jump out first, followed by some very light citric hops

T - Again, there is a big grainy presence that leads the way...I'm picking up a lot of straw, grassy, and bread...the biscuit malt sweetens things up in the middle...the only time I detect any hops is at the end of the beer...they come in and give a slight citrus flavor and some bitter piney notes

M - Medium bodied...nicely carbonated...smooth, crisp, refreshing

O - This is my first offering from Elysian and needless to say I wasn't impressed...there was too much grain and malt presence that it overpowered almost all the hop additions
