Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a mellow orange citrus. In the taste, big orange citrus rinds. A hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus and small sugary like aftertaste. Big orange citrus, lighter alcohol, dare I say a fantastic everyday IPA.

22oz bomber poured into a pint

A- A slightly cloudy deep sunset-orange with a reddish twinge in the center. A nice rocky light tan head that retains better than average, with average lacing.

S- Piney, with a light sweet-grass second order whif every once in a while.

T- Amazing piney hop from beginning to end, slight oily finish, malt is cracker like, but not very strong, but it works well with the very piney hop. A real treat.

M- A little lighter than i would expect the body is not very firm. A little alcohol twang, very clean finish.

O- Excellent IPA offering with a nice piney twist. Cheers!

strong grape-like flavor from Nelson Sauvon hops, similar to Rico Sauvin but not as good

Elysian Brewing
Idiot Sauvin

Pours a rich copper color, soapy head forms with a yellow tint and plenty of lace. Aroma is full of citrus, resinous herb/s and some pine. Very inviting nose. In the taste, very citrusy, with clementine orange, pine, and grapefruit flavor. Malt body achieves a nice balance, with a slightly toasted caramel flavor. There is no hint of alcohol. Medium bodied feel with crisp carbonation and a small hop bite. Overall, the Idiot Sauvin is a winner in my book, delicious beer here.

I've had this on cask and loved it, but was a little too tipsy to review. Finally found a bottle!

A: Copper-bronze with an off-white head, good retention, great lace.

S: Gooseberries and marmalade, dried mango, papaya, light grassyness.

T: West-coast hopping, but the flavour is a bit different. Very resiny, but not really piny. Tons of marmalade and grapefruit rind, dried mango and papaya, gooseberry (somewhat chardonnay-like). Solid bitterness, hints of grainy biscuit.

M: Well-attenuated moderate body has a somewhat assertive (though pleasant) hop acidity. Has a crisp, dry finish, as an IPA should!

O: All around it's a really great brew. Not your usual hop flavours, and it's a pleasant change.

Really good IPA. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit rind.
