Elevator Three Frogs IPA - Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's head is one finger thick and off-white, with lateral lacing, and a hazy golden amber body.

Smells like some earthier malts that just got swept under the rug, along with more floral, spicy hops. UK style IPA maybe?

I taste the spicier hops joined by a touch of juicier, more citrus-like strains. This is balanced by a rather biscuity malt sweetness. Yep, this is a UK style all the way. Kind of even a cider taste going on mid palate. Its not bad per se; its certainly unique.

The mouthfeel I'm picking up here is lighter and moderately carbonated. Surprisingly clean finish with as much unexpected tastes going on.

Overall, I'll give Elevator Three Frogs IPA - Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus a 4.5. I'll let the Elevator Brewery have the benefit of the doubt for totally failing to mention this is an English/UK style of IPA and the malt presence's complete lack of mention. If this were slotted as the proper style, I'll bet more people would give it a go. With that said, if you enjoy such IPA's, then definitely pick this up. If you've never had an English style of IPA and are curious, this also would be a pretty solid gateway beer.

Tried this beer at the brewery and was very surprised. This is a very well balanced APA. A boatload of hops on the nose and excellent malt backbone. Bitterness is very smooth.

Head disapated quickly but left heavy lacing on the glass. Hop aroma is strong. Definitely dry hopped to accentuate the nose.

Color is a light amber. Medium body/mouthfeel. A little on the sweet side vs others but when matched to the hops it's excellent.

Kind of a Pliny but without the dank hop character.

Poured from the tap into a wine style tasting glass.

Appearance- Beer pours a golden amber with a ring of carbonation around the sides of the glass. Lacing clings lightly and sticks to the sides leaving a slight spiderweb on the glass.

Smell- Hops and malt smell to be quite balanced! Piney and rustic. Tree frogs may be a fitting name. Malts are a good balance of two-row and Maris Otter.

Taste- Fruity, spicey and pine. Malt is balanced and creamy. My IPA freak friends may hat me for this, but I like balance. Pine dominates but rides along with the malt very well. Superb.

Mouthfeel- Creamy, piney, balanced, well carbonated, and medium bodied. Just like it should be.

Drinkability- Just to test I had to take the rest of the glass to the dome. Smooth and refreshing all the way down. A very nice IPA from Elevator.

this beer pours a foggy apricot with a very thick head that laces very well throughout. it has slightly citrus smell with a noticable malt hint. the taste follows a similar path. the citrus notes are more prominent in the taste but are still followed by some maltiness. the hop finish has a solid bite to it. i wouldn't guess this one is 7.6 abv. the mouthfeel is carbonated and leaves it slightly sticky. overall this is a sweeter than most IPAs but it is just what i like. i dont think there are too many better values than this one. this is one of my go to brews. and this is an IPA...

Pours a light orange with a frothy white head that fades fast. The smell is very citrusy up front, orange and grapefruit. The flavor follows the smell, more citrus than hops, but nice and flavorful. The taste isn't sweet, and has a small bitter finish that lingers for awhile. A nice chewy mouthfeel, medium body, very smooth. Overall a flavorful beer, different take on an IPA, but definitely a good beer that can be a nice change for a hophead.
