22oz bottle into a Captain Lawrence tulip. Uncharacteristically bought an undated IPA, but it just appeared at the store and I've had good experiences (draft only) with Elysian, so I thought why not.

Appearance: 4.0
Nice glowing orange. Long lasting frothy white head that leaves large waves of lacing.

Smell: 3.75
Succulent citrus fruit at first, like cutting an orange. Crystal malt and oranges with time. Not a very strong aroma, but pleasant.

Taste: 3.80
Lots of citrusy hops (very typical Citra orange note, with some clear tropical fruit highlights from the Amarillo). Sugary crystal malt through the middle, then a nice dry, clean finish.

Really hides the ABV, giving a very refreshing overall impression. This reminds me of that really 90 Minute-esque Other Half; too much crystal malt for me, but every other flavor is so bright and refined that I'm still into it. Excellent Summer IPA, especially if you want your IPAs a little sweet. There's even some yellow cake flavor in here that works somehow.

Mouthfeel: 4.5
Really shines in this category. Light side of medium bodied, really dry finish. Moderate carbonation. Given the flavors (a little tropical fruit, a lot of orange, and a decent amount of sweetness), this is the perfect mouthfeel. It's not a 5 because I would prefer it juicier (but I'd only want this if I could have less outright sugar, more cereal or country bread and way more hop character).

Overall: 3.9
I don't know if this is a great beer, but it's good enough that I'm still interested in trying more Elysian hoppy beers (fresh Super Fuzz is really nice too). Too much crystal malt usually tanks an IPA, but I'll happily get through this bottle.

Color is the classic orangey amber with a sturdy froth and lots of lacing in the glass. Sweet and fruity. Moderately bitter but sensationally aromatic. Smells of honeysuckle and warm pine needles.

Just sweet enough. Burnt mango and dry pineapple. Long bitter woody and sharp taste of hops and more hops.

One of the best IPAs I've had this year. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Swill Beer Dispensary in Anacortes. Enjoyed in the Affligem chalice.
