look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the bomber into a pint glass. Body is ever-so-slightly hazed honey-amber with a small whitish head. Leaves solid lacing behind.

S: Nice nose - mainly juicy citrus but with a touch of sweet malt underneath.

T: Surprised by the malt bill on this one - lots of caramel malt/toffee sweetness. Finishes with juicy citrusy hops - think orange & grapefruit - some apricot as well. Lingering bitterness is cut by the juicy hops and sweeter malt. Nice balance, though this one "feels" more like a DIPA (reminds me of DFH 90 Minute somewhat) than a straight IPA.

M: Medium in heft, maybe a little heavier than that. Carbonation is modest, giving it a bit of an oily or slick feel.

O: Good stuff. Like I said, feels bigger than your average IPA, I believe due to the generous amount of malt used here (or at least the impression thereof).

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Pours an unfiltered hazy orange. White head forms and has good staying power. Expert lace.

SMELL: Very fragrant tropical fruit notes of mango, kumquat, and papaya. There is a sugary, barleywinesque note of alcohol and candy like malt.

TASTE: More citrus forward in the taste, grapefruit and orange skin being major players. Has some earth, wood and pine notes but is not overly bitter. The flavor is quite juicy. Malt flavor is bready, with a suggestion of buttery toffee and caramel. There is just a slight alcohol presence in the finish. Well balanced by a small dry hop bite.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated. This is good tasting ale. It has a juicy and yet creamy smooth texture, and it drinks very easily.

OVERALL: Certainly well made IPA with some English ale influence. Has enough hops to keep you sidetracked, but the malts, yeast and estery notes add some complexity here. I enjoyed sampling this one, and Elysian Brewing do several variations of IPA and Pumpkin ales. A more than capable beer from a more than capable brewery.
