nimbleprop (6881) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2015
On tap at Burger Tap Shake in Washington Circle, pours a hazy dark gold with some frothy, white head. Nose has pine and dried lemon peel, soap, some herbs, just a little bit of grist, a little pissy. Flavor has pine and lemon, some white grapefruit, some bouquet garni, just a little cracker malt. Bitter, dry finish.

Thisis12ptfont (1077) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Aromas of citrus, orange and bready malts. Pours a pale gold with a thin white foam. Taste brings orange, tangerine, earth, resin, malt funk, honey and grain malt. Finishes bland with an off maltiness. Overall, this stuff tastes muddled and is not refreshing.

radio_nowhere (1329) - Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle into snifter glass, golden-coppery color with white head. Aroma notes of heavy malt sweetness and light citrus/fruity hop sweetness. Taste adds more pine/citrus hop bitterness, caramel, slight nuttiness and light herbal/spice. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, sticky, thick with roast fruity/citrus bitter finish. Very tasty winter ale, great tasty hop balance makes this more interesting than the usual sweet spice bomb.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4000) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2015
Finally trying Elysian’s Bifrost ale on tap at CBB Bud. A clear reddish orange pour with a sweet fruity nose. Medium bodied and smooth the taste is spice and orange peel with a hearty dose of hops. Pretty good.

Garrold (3663) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Brewdog, Leeds. Hazy, lumpy, dark gold. Film of sticky, white head. Now there’s sticky banana, and there’s sticky banana. This is good, sticky banana. Juicy, sweet, pineapple hop. It’s all very sweet, and chewy. Any bitterness kicks in late on. Soft, toffee, thick, chewy palate. Finishes light, chewy bitter. Tasty gear. Sweet, and chewy thick. Quite delicious.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Poured from a 12. Aroma has a slight sweetness to it. Flavor has a bit of a spruceness to it. It is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Is not overspiced so is very well balanced.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2015
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - murky dark amber-orange beer with particles floating within; firm and long lasting beige foam; beautiful lacework; fair fruity hoppiness of melon and citrus; full-bodied, light sticky, yet velvety palate; moderate carbonation, pretty fair sweetness lasting in the finish; light bitter and with a long aftertaste of litchies and melon

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Tastes and smells like a hardy IPA. Thick creamy head that clings to sides of the glass. Pretty good.

WABeerFiend (376) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler in late 2013. A: Amber/red. See through. 1 finger head. S: Sweet citrus, pear. T: Complex. Bitterness, citrus, flower. O: I wanted to like this one as Elysian is local, but this was too bitter for me so I poured it down the drain. I could not get the taste out of my mouth. Unbalanced.
