Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass.Pours a medium coppery amber with a one finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and piney hops with a little dankness and slight light stone fruit. Flavor of lightly caramel malt, light stone fruit, mixed citrus, piney and citrus hops. The finish is long lingering, high alpha, resinous hops and pleasant light hints of the fruit and malt. Medium bodied with a good light creaminess. A sneaky, well made imperial IPA. The light fruit and moderate malt balance the hops at the start of the taste and the intensity of hopping is only clear in the finish, which still has enough pleasant fruit and malt flavors to support the quite resinously hoppy finish. Ales like this that have an interesting flavor progression simply invite further tasting, which must be paced in this fairly big IPA. I liked this a lot. Another fine IPA from Elysian.

Served in a Schooner.

A - Served a dark, clear orange with a one finger tan head. Great retention and solid lacing left down the side of the glass.

S - Lots of hoppy pine and grass. A tiny bit of malty bread.

T - Again, lots of pine, grass, orange citrus and some mild malt toastiness.

D - Good carbonation and an average medium body.

O - Wow, stumbled across this one at the Tangletown location near Green Lake. My first time there and I find an awesome IPA. I can't wait to go back.

Pours a light copper honey color with a dense one knuckle head that provides excellent lacing. Aroma is fairly mild, the usual citrus and pine with a touch of underlying sweet bread. Taste is very pleasant. I think they may have misnamed this one, because it is in no way aggressive or boisterous. Light sweetness blended into grassy pine and citrus. Even the bite of the hops is more of a threat than a promise, as it never quite builds to anything. Yet I don't find any of that to be a negative. This is a nice, well balanced and enjoyable drink, with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel that is completely unobtrusive on the palate. I feel like I am damning it with faint praise, but I guess the take away is that this brew is greater than the sun of its parts.
