Notes: Dayglow IPA: Another Manic Lupululu! This is a beer with the insistent beat of hops, as driving and inevitable as a Full Moon party in Haad Rin. It drips with tropical, sunshiny Mosaic, and twinkles with touches of El Dorado and Centennial. A touch of wheat hazes the malt bill a bit around the edges, and the IBUs are stuck in the mid-sixties.

Sweet with some bitterness and citric background. There is not much body or malt flavor to the beer. A little after taste.

LOOK - - - - murky orange with a nice frothy meringue-like head - nice retention
SMELL - - - - some mango and earthiness - not very strong
TASTE - - - - some hop bitterness and then huge amounts of tropical fruit and a touch of citrus - some pine flavors and earthy/woodsy notes come in as well - some decent caramel malt flavor in the base beer - tons of hop flavors and mango - a touch of sweetness and a touch of bitterness
FEEL - - - - - oily - medium bodied decent carbonation throughout to help keep it interesting
OVERALL - - this is for the hop lovers - tons of hops - heavy on the mango - a bit too much earthiness but well balanced otherwise - enjoyable but it is a taste bud killer!!

April 27th, 2016 - The Elysian Dayglow IPA is dank, almost to the point of self-destruction. That wet, herbal smell is almost rotten and putrid, and pair this with the taste and I begin to wonder if I got an off batch. The body is completely flat, has no countering sweetness, a short aftertaste, and tastes much more like a hoppy pils that's been left with the top off for too long.

Really a good beer, but I’d prefer a leas hoppy beer when it’s so light in ABV. It’s smoky and lovely, but very hoppy. It would be better if more flavors were added, but it’s a really good beer!

Would have been more enjoyable with more carbonation. My example is pretty flat.

Copper colored with an inch of dense and frothy beige head. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of citrus and pine. I’m tasting sticky pine and a touch of citrus. The mouth is moderately resinous and dry.

Shotgunned from a 12oz. can. Although taste period was brief I sensed dandelion aromas and heavy malt as if I were crushing Colt 45s. Couldn't get a good look as it went down my gullet at the snap of a finger. Piney aftertaste mixed together with a hint of citrus orange/lemon. Hammered a second one down right after and finished it off with a shot of rumplemintz, seemed minty the second time around.

I saw bottles of this at my beer shop for .50 cents each. Upon further inspection, I saw the best buy date was 15 NOV 2018. I bought two. What's the worse that could happen? Maybe it turned into a Barleywine? Like my DFH 90 minute IPA I stored for 2 years? The look of the beer was pretty solid. Off white frothy head, dark gold color. The nose was stone fruit, bread malts, maybe some floral notes. The taste was mostly malt, but with that underlying hop presence which was a spicy/piney variety. Some sweetness as well. Mouthfeel was medium. Lots of bitterness on the front and back end. Finish was dry. Overall, for an old IPA, this wasn't too bad. I'm sure the hops were set back a bit. I'd like to sample a fresh one, but they are hard to find here. The Space Dust is quite available and is my favorite from this brewery.
