Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy and foamy off-white head, medium retention with sticky lacing. Aroma is medium honey and biscuit malt, cantaloupe, peach and pear esters with moderate pine, resin, and spicy hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, medium sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bomber at BD Sheps B. It pours clear oranger-amber with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, tangerine, nectarine, big flapjack character and toasted oats. The taste is bitter-sweet, tangerine peel, orange, raisin, light golden syrup, candied citrus peel, light toast, pepper and light alcohol with a bitter, somewhat citric finish. Good depth to it and rather well balanced. Fun and interesting.

JohnGalt1 - thank you for adding this! Golden raisin with lumps of light, creamy foam. Lots of lace. Smells real nice to me. Citrusy, piny, bitter grapefruit, a bit of peach, lighter caramel malting. I like the assertiveness of the nose. Taste follows suit nicely with bitterness well balanced with a solid crystal malt background. The hops are resinous, and carry some pine needle, a bit of grapefruit pith, lemon rind and a touch of cattiness. Medium bodied with lighter carb. To be honest, this reminds me of Duet from Alpine, a really nice beer. Well done Elysian - after November’s absolute strike out, this was nice. Serving type: bottle 12-22-2012

onceblind (4518) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Cloudy golden with a thin persistent foamy/rocky white head. The nose kinda reminds me of Christmas, with spruce and pine an a bit of burnt caramel, with a floral twang. The flavor is sweet with a bit of burnt earthy caramel, but quickly acquires a bit of floral and piney bitterness, and finishes dry-ish with a leafy hop bitterness and light caramel pale grain malt sweetness. Bitter and earthy-pale.

pdx76 (645) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle - pours cloudy copper with medium thick foamy head. Nose of grass, grain, and brown sugar. Taste very grassy and initially of sweet raisin. A bitter metallic taste overwhelms at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Cloudy amber golden color, with some sediment. Aroma is caramel, dark fruit, sweet bitterness. Taste is syrup, grapefruit, bitterness, and raisins. The aroma and taste are reminiscent of an aged barleywine. Finish started out a bit too bitter and dry but it has evened out a little bit.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
In short: A tasty, fruity and bitter full body IPA. Good beer.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Mostly clear orange body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is fruity hops (mangos, apricots, peaches) and a bit floral with a nice fresh fruits quality to it. Taste has a clean malt bill, a bit bready, a bit crackery, lightly toasted. A sweetness sensation that feels more like fruit juice than honey or caramel or residual sugars. An assertive bitterness leading to a moderately dry finish. Full chewy body with appropriate well levelled carbonation. Tasty and refreshing. Nothing original here but we never have too many well-made tasty IPAs. A bit underrated imho, that’s my opinion and you wouldn’t believe how often I hear people say “wow, you’re absolutely right!”, I just wish they were talking to me.

09/29/2013. 22 oz. bottle. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy white head. Aromas of caramel, tropical fruit, citrus. Flavors are buttery with caramel, grapefruit and a dry hoppy finish. Pretty good stuff!
