Bright copper color. Clear. Moderate and lasting head with a multitude of streaks on the glass throughout the tasting.

Leans to the caramel malt to the nose, although it's not sweet. The hop is light and flowery.

I get a nutty flavor up front. Very dry with a far more pronounced bitterness than the smell indicates. I get a bit of earthiness in the swallow although the bittering hop is so strong as to diminish the effect. Long, long aftertaste.

Definitely a fruit forward IPA with a orange rind aftertaste. Aroma is somewhat grape and orange and the taste is sweet malt and a bitter on the swallow that matches well.

Awesome label artwork (a freaking tiger shooting laser beams out of its eyes!) and a smooth, fruity, refreshing beer.

Dayglow has a thick, off-white head, a clear, gold-orange appearance, and heavy glass lacing. Aroma is of hop resin and white bread crust. Taste is of sweet white bread crust, strong, yet not harsh, hop resins, pine sap, and flower nectar. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat syrupy, and Dayglow finishes medium dry.

12 oz bottle. Dated 18 October 2017.
Clear amber body with a a tall, dense, white head that leaves foamy lacing. Lots of visible carbonation.
Moderate bitterness for style.
Mild aroma with a much stronger flavor that includes notes of tropical fruits, grapefruit peel and pine.
Notably smooth, medium body and medium carbonation.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottled September 15th. Poured from bottle into glass at home.

Look: Pours amber orange in color, with fluffy white head. Medium clarity. No visible particulates.

Smell: Hoppy aroma: bubblegum, non specific fruit, grass. Not very intense or surprisingly complex. Small amount of light malt aroma detectable. No alcohol aroma detectable.

Taste: Hop forward flavor: more bubblegum, blueberry, mango, fresh cut grass. More intense than the aroma. Similar minimal light malt flavor, somewhat biscuity. No alcohol flavor detectable. Medium high bitterness.

Feel: Medium full body. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Medium sweet finish.

Overall: A solid example of a classic American IPA. The Mosaic hops are detectable in the bubblegum/blueberry aroma/flavor but overall the hop aroma and flavor are overwhelming. This is most likely due to the age of the bottle and a fresher example may be more impressive.

Elysian Brewing Co. "Dayglo IPA"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle without any apparent freshness dating
$1.83 @ Cherry Hill Wine, Liquor & Beer, Cherry Hill, NJ

Look: Hazy golden body beneath a finger thick head of creamy white that holds quite well and leaves some very good lacing behind.
Smell: Bright and welcoming with notes of grapefruit, sweet grainy malt, apricot, peach, and pineapple.
Taste: As the aroma suggests with some additional orange and berry and pine. The malt has some wheat character to it. Solidly bitter but not overdone, it balances the malt but then lingers in the dry, tropical, and piney finish.
Feel: Medium bodied and gently crisp.
Overall: A bold, juicy IPA that's still an old school IPA at heart. If you can handle bitterness of an IPA it's really easy to drink.

My bro in law got this beer from a beer store in Concord, Ohio. It poured a clear orangish with thin white head that did not leave much lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter fruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it wasn't a very drinkable beer.

If you're going Manic, and in mood for bursting citric, grapefruit ba-bomb, try this.
a) Pours a slightly hazed orange amber body with fine point rising bubbles that build a 1 finger thick, lasting and wash-lacing the snifter.
s) Abundant pineapple & grapefruit. "pineapple-pen", Orange rind and spice rack too.
t) Gears high into big citric territory, follows the pineapple, grapefruit, orange rind, takes you on a short tour of sweet marmalade on malt /french bread toast, and then back again to cleansing a bit of pine and and a lot of citric bitterness.
f) Complex battle-worthy chewy, yet creamy profile and cleansing, scrubbing bitter finish. This one would score high in a blind taste off for being big and citric.

Dayglow has a delicious citrus and floral aroma. The flavor of grapefruit peel is strong with some caramel and pine. The bitterness doesn't overpower the flavors, which is a plus. Dayglow is a little more carbonated than usual IPAs, which I like. It has a nice golden, hazy color with a bit of head. This IPA is a solid choice.
