On tap in a 16 oz. glass. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, lots of citrus. Taste is hops, bitter, some citrus and pine, very dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a solid beer, highly drinkable for the abv.

such a good ipa, mosaic i have to imagine, or one of its near cousins. the color is hazy and golden and just right, heady and lasting, looks the part for sure. nose is tropical and dynamic hops, fresh and west coast in nature, and the malt is frothy in feel, almost creamy, well carbonated, but not anywhere near as sticky or bitter as some are. its real approachable, which is odd because its as full flavored as it is. i think this is one of the few semi mass produced india pales that showcases this type of hop complexion. its probably scored as high as it is because so many people are realizing what hops can be for the first time, a different kind of hoppy, and its just so so good. carbonation is popping off, and the flavor of the hops just lasts forever. honey sweetness just for a second. elysian has really upped their game, and this is one of their best!

Picked up locally...just hit town in 6 packs! Bottled 10/6/14 enjoyed from an Elysian 10th pumpkin mini

a - brew pours a crisp transparent light orange. Nice IPA head with great lace that coated the glass.

s - nose is really pleasant. Bouquet of citric hops...nice amount of resins stickiness without overwhelming but giving a nice accessible bitter backbone.

t/m/ o - really crisp and focused easy drinking IPA. As the nose suggested, a nice blend of classic hop citrus and pine in a very tight balance. Rich and flavorful but soft and easy drinking. Really nice beer.

A: medium gold and clear; got a coupla fingers of fluffy head that left lace spattered down the glass

S: fresh, wet pale grain malts, bright flowery pine and citrus

T: crisp hop bitterness - flowers bringing bitter citric pith with mild pine resin undertones to the finish

M: sharp and tight, gets fuller as it crosses the tongue; smooth finish with a lingering shellac of bitterness; medium-bodied and moderately carbonated; creamy close...

O: a nice IPA - hits all the marks - hop-forward drinking, packing a solid 7.2 abv...

Hoppy without being bitter. Citrus undertones. My beer of choice. I only wish they sold it by the case!

Love. Love. LOVE this beer.

I am so stoked that Elysian decided to make this a regular six-pack distributed beer because it will certainly become one of my regularly rotated IPA's.
If you're in the mood for a hop-bomb but not the same ol' same ol' then I recommend this beer. It has the basic citrus and flaurel feel of a West-coast, Northwest IPA. So crisp, so refreshing, seems so drinkable but it is a 7.20% abv so watch out for that.
I love Elysian. I love their style. and I really love this IPA.

Terrific IPA. The Whole Foods Beer guy recommended it to me. I just paired it with a pork chop and it is wonderful. Smooth mouthfeel, bright bitterness that gives way to grassy citrus on the end. It's a smooth, pleasant, and bold IPA. Very nice.
