Pours a clear gold with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, hops, and some malt. Tastes of slightly bitter hops, citrus, a little malt, and some dryness. Medium-light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall this is a good beer, just a little lacking in the flavor.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Medium golden pour with 2 fingers of white head. Fantastic lacing.

S: Citrus hops and fragrant herbs.

T/F: light malts give some sweetness. Relatively mild bitterness... good fruity/citrus and floral character. Bitterness mostly at the finish. Medium to light in body.

O: A very pleasant IPA. Nothing earth-shattering, but easy drinking and tasty. An IPA for people that aren't quite sure they like IPA's.

Pours copper. Thick, medium, white head that lasts a while with loads of lacing.

Smells malts, light citrus and floral.

Tastes pale malt, citrus peel and a light amount of floral. Plenty of bitterness. Finish is dry with a piney and citrus peel linger. Medium body and fizzy higher medium carbonation

i like this IPA better than space dust. This beer has a copper hue and some haze. Smell of hops and with a medium hoppiness to boot. Went down real smooth

Elysian is new in my area- this is the best beer I've tasted from so far.

Pours a clear copper color with a 4F head which takes a while to resolve.

Excellent aroma: malty, toffe.
The aroma transitions well to the taste. Toffee, sweet,

Pale, Munich, Crystal and Cara-hell Malts come through giving this beer a rich
smooth old world style., good head retention.It does remind me of a English beer.

Amarillo and centennial add citrus and a floral character.
Smooth finish- only light bitterness.

I will definitely buy again.

Appearance: poured out of a Crowler into a 20 oz mug. Medium copper color with very little head that dissipates very quickly with little lacing.

Smell: mostly malts and a little citrus.

Taste: I get malts and pines but I can't quite put my finger on the aftertaste I'm getting- it's almost a resin taste.

Feel: carbonation seems a little light but otherwise a crisp IPA.

Overall: I like this IPA. It's not in my top 10 but I would buy it again.

Poured into a half pint glass: color is straw, transparent, moderate effervescence, head is brighter white, fine bubbles, good lacing on the glass.

Smell is malt forward, with light toast and hint of caramel, then crisper fruity/lemon aroma with earthy aroma backing.

Taste is also malt forward: light toast, touch of caramel, similar to the aroma fruity/lemon flavors follow; hops are crisp, earthy, bitter.

Mouthfeel is a bit crisp and stronger bitterness than strength would leave to believe.

Overall a good beer, well hopped, cleanly fermented with moderate malt forward flavor and aroma.

Lots of hops but not too bitter. Really good...this brewery is consistently brewing well-crafted brew. Although I have only been able to try 3 of theirs.... living way out here in the sticks on Bass Lake in northern Indiana.
