Nice IPA and spices in the aroma. Good malt and tons of spices in the flavor. I get the rosemary for sure and the hops stand out well.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
5 of 12 of the Apocalypse series.
Rosemary Agave IPA (w/lemon peel)
Pours a light golden ale with etched white surface foam. Hazy. Smells of agave syrup, grain and some hints of lemon and rosemary. Getting herbed/spice beer, not IPA. Grain, bitter and lemon rind with some alfalfa. Not impressed. Medium on full bodied for the style and moderate carb. Dry finish. Not a winner for me.

Elysian is one of the few brewers that never fails to put out a good product. I was a bit hesitant to try something with rosemary because it is a powerful herb, but I was not disappointed. The agave and the malt pair beautifully with the rosemary and the hops. Well done!

Bottle. Floral hop aroma with a bit of rosemary and agave. Pours opaque orange with one finger of white head. Starts out smooth with the agave and rosemary really standing out. Finishes very dry with a bitter, hoppy finish.

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.

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.
