On tap at the abbey. Pours orange with a small head. Aroma is tangy and dry. Flavor is mixed up hops, lots of rosemary at first, then mellows out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew and Brendan after the Wintersun / Eluveitie show. Pours a light body with light haze and white lacing. Aroma is floral, spiced, lemony with some candles. Mouthfeel is carbonated and medium with notes of floral spice, lemon, light honey, candles, soap, and light fruit. Very interesting.

Dogbrick (9824) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Sample during the Armageddon tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 12/20/2012. Hazy yellow-gold color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and pale malts. The finish is herbal and floral with a zesty citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

hayduke (3925) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
This poured a hazy orange with a big gold head and medium lacing. Nose of citrus and a hint of the agave. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is very rich and full of citrus. Agave in he finish but hops still dominate. Really tasty and good drinking.

Strykzone (5816) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. Ron was a little busy brewing the Obama Honey Wheat beer. This poured very hazy after being rolled. A big golden tinted head faded quickly enough. The malts were tasted first along with fruit. Citrus hops are somewhat bitter but overly so. Grapefruit. Lemon is tasted at some point. The finish is more hoppy than the start. This is nice.

ben4321 (4885) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/4/12, My First Post-Sandy Tick, itís good to be back home!

Aroma: The nose has a citrus hop presence, agave, and some underlying spice as well
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange color with a small, bubbly white head and light lace
Flavor: It is light-medium sweet, a bit fruity, some rosemary/spice, and a medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average-to-lively carbonation, and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a very solid IPA. I thought the agave and rosemary worked pretty well, and are both subtle enough as to not overwhelm the beer. Very solid addition to the 12 Beers of the Apocalypse Series (of which I have now ticked the first 7). I hope I get to try, and look forward to trying, the next 5 beers in this quality series.

My contribution to the evening with this beer. Apparently Elysian has just appeared in Pennsylvania which makes me optimistic about them potentially backtracking towards the Midwest (if they can keep up with demand). A fine beer, I wish were more than just a one off. Maybe someone else will take a stab at an agave IPA so I donít have to wait years.

Aroma / Appearance - Mostly opaque, the mandarin orange body shimmers with life. Wisps of bubbly head drift on the surface like chunks of sea foam. Basil takes over the nose at first like an out of control herb garden. Agave is also present in a combination that is simultaneously tropical and earthy.

Flavor / Palate - Earthiness persists as the basil transitions to canned peaches and mangoes ripe from the vine. The hops are not as strong as I was initially anticipating but are still fairly robust. I canít wait to get my hands on other entries if they are rereleased in the future.
