look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a medium orange color with a thick, soapy looking, two fingered head. Carbonation is gentle and steady.
S - Light caramel biscuit malt, oranges, light pine, sweet red grapefruit. Aroma is blended and balanced.
T - Light caramel biscuit malt, light grapefruit and oranges, faint pine bitterness, and some very light floral bitterness. Nicely balanced with a nice lingering grapefruit bitterness mixed in with light bready malt, resiny on the back of the tongue.
M - Medium body, gentle texture, low carbonation.
O - A nicely balanced IPA that's right down the middle - not too malty and not too hoppy. For the price I paid for this bomber, I wouldn't spend that again for another bottle, it was pricey.

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.
