Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber.

Smells of oranges, pineapple, and pine.

Very refreshing. All of the flavors are light on the tongue but have a strong backbone
And are very well balanced. The alcohol is hidden well. Kind of feel like I'm drinking a
session ipa. The piney orange dominates with a strong bitter weight on the bulk of my tongue. Great mouthfeel. Overall a solid delicious ipa.

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a hazy bronze color with an inch plus of beige head that quickly recedes leaving moderate surface layer and lacing.

Sweet and citrus aromas predominate.

Flavors of grapefruit, citrus zest, apricot and other tropical fruit with just a hint of pine.

Medium bodied with a sweet finish and moderate carbonation with a strong, lingering bitter aftertaste.

Thoroughly enjoyed this IPA. A nice sweet, citrusy IPA for the summer. Will definitely be getting again.

It's a hazed gold with a solid quilt of bone white foam. Smells like grapefruit, onion, body odor, some more onion, some resin and hemp, a little orange. The flavor is bitter, more onion, more body odor and musk, some lighter grain, some orange and grapefruit pith. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a little wetness on the finish. A little too aggressive with the citra hops, makes it go from fruity love to veggie sadness.

22 picked up at the COOP last weekend and finally getting around to the bottle.. pretty okay 1" white head dies back quickly above a hop hazed lite golden brew.

Nose is big melon/tropical fruity hoppiness.. mango and lesser piney notes... VERY interesting for an IPA...

A bit dry even for a PNW IPA.. Hop flavors though are amazing with tropical fruits and tangerine zest... background melon with warmth...

Body and carbonation are about perfect...

Unfortunately... on the geek sites, this brew will get little love... Elysian doesn't get the love because the many spotty offerings.

That said, this is a top-tier IPA EASILY.... but because it is "Elysian" the geeks will gloss over it.

Offered this at my favorite local spot. I was told this is right up my alley

A- a hazy darkened orange is completely blurred with color, but the presence is clear. A hoppy presentation is in the midst

S- whoa! Mango and massive tropical fruit components make up a NOT expected scent profile. Spiked with citra hops, this reminds me of fresh mango Abner from hill farmstead. Very bizarre that the scent is that impressive. Wow

T- delicious tropical components mingle with a great piney flavor profile. This is very impressive as a fresh brew. I feel like I'm in Vermont right now. There is a caramel malt finish that closes out the hop experience, but that's ok.

M- prickly flavors with the right carbonation

O- my favorite young lady bought this for me on the last day if may in 2013. She said it would be right up my alley and she is right! What a tropical hoppy brew. Again, I feel like this is the distant pal to Abner at hill farmstead

On tap at 16 tons the other day. This is a solid, juicy style IPA, with considerable citrus and light pine Alcohol is reasonable and the finish is quite dry. In short, this is an easy to enjoy and appreciate IPA from Elysian. While not something I'd necessarily go looking for, this is an IPA I could see myslef ordering again.

Appearance has a hazy orange gold color supporting a healthy head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice aroma of floral hops and caramel malt. Taste the sweetness of the malt with a big hit of hops leaving a grapefruit aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. If you have a hop obsession this is a good one to try.
