It pours a rich golden color with a good foamy white head. The smell is tropical fruit but not too strong. The taste is also tropical fruit with a good bite to the taste. Overall a good drink little heavy on hippy bite needs to be a bit more balanced but still enjoyable.

Poured into a frosty glass with lot’s of head - 2” from a bottle, amber gold colour with little haze. Not much smell, a little fruit. Stong hop taste with a little burn in the back of the throat. Slight melon and fruit taste, just above average for an IPA. It’s a tad expensive as all with Elysian, would want more body for the price, but that’s just a preference, it’s not bad by any means.

In balance and hopping, this is an “old school” American IPA. I know it uses newer hops, but to me it tastes like 2006 Goose Island IPA. This is an average beer.

The presentation is cool and creative! I Love Tigers and this fits the bill for me! Now for the real important stuff. The aroma is bright and tropical with a wonderful berry-like tartness you can smell. The taste is wonderful. Bright, grapefruit and citrus notes along with some pineapple. On this beer you get a slight hint of the malt. Since this beer contains wheat, you can taste a slight toast flavor serving as the backbone. The top end is bright and sweet with a nice transition into the wide range of tropical fruitiness you get. The finish is where that hop bitterness comes in. The bitter hop flavor sits in the back of the pallet. The feel is fantastically smooth, very smooth. The body is medium to heavy. Crisp bit not overly so. Very well balanced. Overall, this is a enjoyable beer, I would however recommend Space Dust rather than this one. This beer doesn't seem to have the same complexity. I still love this beer and recommend it!

I just love the tiger shooting Lazer beans from it's eyes on the bottles lable. Nov 15 2018. Opened on 12 29 18

The liquid is a shiny golden Amber color, pretty much clear with a substantial foam cap of pure white. Slow dissipation, plenty of coverage and crazy lace leftovers.

A tangy fruit hop style aroma blended with ripe citrus, grapefruit and cantaloupe hits the nose first. Fields of grain, like wheat and dry grasses are the effects I get from the light malt aroma.

Tropical fruity hops give a real kick as the grapefruit-style bitterness hits and then mellows out to some juicy, jam effects. Dry earthy tones from the white wheat malt keeps it crisp. Bright and sharp feel with a more medium bodied effect with the malt. Good balance and decent complexity keeps it interesting.

The drinkability level is a bit low as the hops have that bitter-citric bite that tends to saturate the palate and eventually burn out your taste buds if the session goes on too long.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Has a somewhat hazy dark golden color with a sudsy, fluffy head with medium retention and lacing.

Pineapple is upfront with the aroma, notes of passion fruit, oranges, tangerines, bread and biscuit malts, and mild grapefruit. Herbal hops also give the aroma a lovely dynamic.

Bitter grapefruit and orange peel upfront, with sweet notes of pineapple, other citrus fruits, and the bread and biscuit malts. Floral and herbal hops help balance the flavor. Feels smooth and goes down cleanly.

Dayglow pours a copper color, with a great big lacing head. Full, earthy and hoppy aroma. Flavor is full, lots of earth, malts, good hop flavors mixed in. Good body and feel. Overall, a very balanced and full IPA.

An aggressive pour reveals a burnt orange color with some nice hop haze and a rich, sudsy light tan head. Lovely. The nose has nice, dank, tropical notes, and a very definite malt component.

The dank is more forward on the taste, with ripe tangerines most prominent, and that prominent malt note keeping things in balance. The mouthfeel is a smidge on the light side for a 7.4% ABV beer, but this is still executed very well.

Put another way, if this is the worst beer I drink going forward as a beer nerd, I will be a very lucky beer nerd.
