Received from cosmonick as an extra. (Cheers!)
Poured from 12oz bottle into imperial pint.

Aroma: Fairly simple, but enticing aroma. Hops go from piney to pineapple. Malt is sweet like honey.

Appearance: Hazy golden-orange body. Nice three-fingered bright white, billowy head settles to a thick, rocky collar of foam. Clumpy lacing clings to the side of the glass.

Flavor: Sweet mandarin orange initially, then pineapple, then honey. Also noticing some apple and even cherry. A very fruity profile for an IPA. An enjoyable, substantial bitterness is there at the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation and medium body. Hops are only slightly drying.

Overall: Some might not appreciate fruity sweetness in an IPA, and, generally, I'm the same if it's syrupy/cloying. In this case, though, Elevator does a good job working all of the hop and malt flavors together. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

Nice honey colored pour with little head. Some residual foam tracing. Initial hoppy bitterness resolved quickly to a smooth, almost Pale Ale calm. Certainly not an over hopped rendition so common in American IPAs.

I keep trying to put my finger on the aroma and I can only equate it to fresh cut lumber. Flavor of lemon orange come to mind. Ignore the previous review the this is not a true IPA, it most certainly is. Youngn's sometimes forget IPAs did not originate in this country and that hoppier is not necessarily better.

If you're in Columbus, give it a go.

Had this on draft at Flip Side in Chagrin Falls recently. Served to me in a snifter, this beer draws a clear, medium amber color with a white, foamy head that's about 1-2 to 2/3 of an inch thick when first served. Eventually settles to a thin white ring lining the inside of the glass along with good lacing. Aromas of caramel malt sweetness along some peninsula and citrusy hops. Flavors of biscuity caramel malt sweetness upfront that gives way to a nice piney, earthy, slightly citrusy hop bitterness with a nice spice note too. Good balance of flavors. Has a crisp, smooth, slightly prickly medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbination. Easy to drink in a good way.

Another good beer from Ohio. Pours a hazy dull dark gold color with a big white head. Good head retention and good lacing. Fine looking IPA.

Strong aroma: Piney hops with some floral aroma as well. Nice

Taste is good as well. Piney hops with some citrus and floral hops as well. Caramel malts take a back seat, but they balance things out some. A nice bitter beer, but not a total hop bomb.

Mouthfeel is crisp. Nice bitterness. Maybe a bit thin but still good. No hint of the 8% abv,

This is a good solid IPA. A bit strong for swilling in mass quantities, but you won't know this from the taste.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at my cousin’s wedding in Athens Ohio

A: Pours an orange hue with a white head that slowly dissipates in to a wispy lace.

S: Super hoppy and bitter aroma.

T: Amazing hoppy flavor with each sip being more bitter than the last.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Awesome IPA – had about 5 or 6 of these
