Great looking beer with a tight capped head and lacing all over the glass. Nice malty character on the nose followed by a dashing hop flavor that resonates in the back of your mouth. Very easy to drink, almost a bit creamy. Elysian is truly a west coast hop bomb that should be up in class with all the greats that come from that area. Hope to run into this one soon!

A - Looks like a nice IPA. Semi hazy golden amber with a 1/2 inch of head that settles pretty quickly to a thick sticky lace ring.

S - Smell is very mild. From what I get is some grapefruit and lemon zest.

T - Not bad its a touch bitter more so than I wanted and a touch herbal. Mild lemon and some limey hops with a clingy bitter finish. Not worth the hype.

M - Medium body and sticky bitterness.

Overall like other Elysian beers this one falls flat giving some harsh bitterness and little balance.

On tap at the Spot in Pt pleasant.

Pours a lightly hazed (possibly from the chill due to this bar serving everything as cold as he rockies) golden hue. Sticky white head.

This is far too cold. Gonna have to give this pint a bit to warm up. This isn't a great bar to go to for craft beer drinking wise, the selections decent but the serving temps, glassware, and staff knowledge is always terrible.

Not really seeing the hype on this one. It's nothing special but it is a finely brewed ipa. Sticky sweet grapefruit and caramel upfront rides into big citric hop flavors and slightly bitter and spicy finish. Nothing crazy. Big creamy body and very good lacing. Again nothing special but pretty good. Standard. If anything sets this ipa apart its the subtelty. Flavors aren't in your face. They're just drinkable.

On tap at Al's.

A: Another golden yellow IPA, lighter with more straw colors than earlier. Another finger, white head again, although lacing isn't a priority.

S: Caramel malts, bready sweet, pair nicely with citrus hops. Neither side gets the upper hand, another pale ale that doesn't deliver its top aroma.

T: Mild hops, citrusy, with plenty of caramel. Another IPA that is too balanced. The hops register but they don't linger, a grassy bitterness that isn't too strong. Alcohol also isn't much of an issue, perhaps a silver lining.

M: An average mouthfeel, plenty of carbonation but the IPA bitterness is reluctant to come out. At the very least, I brough some Idiot Sauvin home to salvage my trip.

ABV 6.3%, Bottled Unk

Murky light amber with a finger of persistent creamy foam. Nice piny, grassy hop nose with hints of grapefruit and biscuit malts. Hints of dryness. Medium malts are sweet and, again, biscuity. Hints of bitterness and plenty of fruity, grassy hops - almost a hint of lime. Medium bodied with light carb and some wet finish. A nice beer, and a different take on an IPA for the region IMO. A little sweet, but tastefully so.
