I had this beer in an airport (SeaTac), but it was so perfect I was disappointed that this would be my only encounter with it. Ah!- to be surrounded by such greatness! Lovely grapefruit and hoppiness, perfectly balanced. I am still dreaming of it, happiness in a glass.

A-a golden orange with a fingers worth of white foam that sticks to the edge

S-pale bready malt and floral and citrus hops

T-similar to the smell with a large pale malt backbone with a large presence of grapefruit and a bit of piney hops

M-medium body, good prickly carbonation, bitter aftertaste

Overall a very enjoyable IPA that is worth a try if you find it

Elysian IPA is pretty pale on the color spectrum of beers that call themselves IPA. Clear golden-amber with a minimal white head that fades and leaves little lace.

Nice intensity on the nose with nectar and sweet citric hops. I'm partial to the very sweet smelling hops, and it plays nicely with discernible caramel malt. Really liking the aromas of this beer, it's like smelling a flower.

Immortal IPA is hoppy at the beginning, middle and finish of this beer. Grapefruit with some rind, sweet caramel and some honey in the middle. Long finish with significant bittering hops at the end without being over the top for me. Fairly low carbonation, medium body and a long finish top off a great balance.

Well crafted IPA, Elysian. I'm craving a second; alas this was the only Immortal IPA left behind in my fridge by a friend. I'm not prone to searching out beers, but I might have to make an exception and look around for more. Perhaps a long day made me appreciate it more, but this brew ended up being a sum greater than its parts for me.
