1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lifeless dead appearance, like a fly caught in amber. Muddy light tan color. Is there actually any grain here? Is it carbonated? Very little aroma at all apart from just a whiff of Brach’s caramels. Then you taste it with a wallop of bitter orange jalapeno marmalade. Very small bubbles for the carbonation as the appearance suggests, but just way too unbalanced. Obviously skimped way too much on the malt and ends up being hops soup. With a touch of heat to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Tastes and smells like a hardy IPA. Thick creamy head that clings to sides of the glass. Pretty good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a cloudy orange color with a medium sized creamy white head that lingered and left exceptional lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy tropical fruits. The flavor was very sweet and sugary with pineapple, passionfruit, guava and a hint of pepper. Very long tropical fruit finish with bozziness coming though. The booziness grows and begins to distract. I liked it less as it warmed up. Moderately full bodied. Tasty.

Bottle from Safeway. Light amber in color. Lightly sweet malty nose. Some maltiness up front with a bit of grapefruit peel. A bit of alcohol as well. Decent, but nothing special.

Poured from a 12 fluid ounce bottle. Gold, light haze. Head is white and creamy. Aroma has light citrus and soft caramel. Taste is similar. Late bitterness, long aftertaste. Kind of complex flavored but I'm sure most people will find it too much.
