Notes / Commercial Description:
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Picked up a single from Kings Beer and Wine 10-21-17 for $2.99. Canned on 10-12-17, best by 1-10-18.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is grapefruit forward, very nice.

Taste is caramel and pale malts base with a huge amount of grapefruit and pine and a little orange.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall this is a nice IPA that is definitely worth a repeat visit!

While Pliny may be the benchmark, this beer, at exactly the same IBUs and nearly the same malt and hop profile, is fantastic. Very close to Pliny and just so freakin’ good. And it comes in a can. And you can actually find it.

Dark gold and hazy in color. Nice lingering head that laces well. Abundant scents of pineapple, orange-peel, and a hint of biscuit. Outstanding, deep flavors of grapefruit, pomegranate, pineapple, wet pine, old road and honeysuckle on the front palate, with a great, balanced finish of malty goodness. Love the taste of this beer. Has a medium feel, overall one of my favorites.

Pours a clear orange with a white head. Smells of malt, caramel, hops, and some citrus. Tastes of very fresh and mildly bitter hops, sweet caramel malts, and citrus zest. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a very fresh and delicious IPA from a new brewery for me.

Deep gold with thick head and sticky lacing. Notes of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit. The taste follows the nose, this sucker is a hop bomb, full on flavor with a bite of pine and dryness. A very very good IPA, blended with some citrus and min sweetness, this is a hoppy good beer.

This is the best IPA I've tried. Only recently discovered IPAs and loving the hoppy citrus flavour packed in abundance in the Elevated IPA
