COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It drips with tropical, sunshiny Mosaic, and twinkles with touches of Eldorado and Centennial. A touch of wheat hazes the malt bill a bit around the edges and the IBUs are stuck in the mid-sixties. SG 16•P/1.064

blackmetal (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Nice fruity aroma. Tastes fruity with strangely some subtle onion flavour and pine tree. (reading other people’s reviews this is in fact the case and I’m not the only crazy one). Well balanced and one of the better west coast IPA’s

Koskela (356) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Floral hops and a hint of malt come from this hazy blonde with a bit of white head. Bitterness and sweetness battle on your tounge and a citrusy sweet grapefruit like flavor emerges victorious in this medium bodied brew. A decent brew for elysian.

penstemon (198) - Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Pours yellow-gold with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma is tangerine, fresh pineapple, grapefruit, light malt, maybe a hint of white grape. Bright and fruity. Taste is fresh grapefruit and tangerine, slight tropical fruits, crackery malt, pleasant pithy bitterness, and orange oil. Medium bitterness, medium body, nice carbonation. Overall a very nice summery IPA.

jmagnus87 (2823) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a half finger of thick white head. Aroma is intense citrus and loads of pine. Taste is heavily bitter, follows aroma. Full bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good!

patricks110 (1906) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
A nice, exotic and delicious IPA. Pours out a bright, shimmering golden orange with a thick, foamy finger of yellowish head that dies whilst clinging to the glass. The nose is nicely accented with tropical and citrus fruit aromas including, orange rind, grapefruit, melon and pineapple. A bit of a toasted malt in the middle with honeyed sweetness and tons of sweet fruit notes. I get alot of peach and melon. The finish is bitter and astringent with a nice heavy resin profile. A bit shortlived but the flavor makes up for it.

slowrunner77 (6547) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Nice one. Juicy aroma and a soft palate, as seems to be common with heavy Mosaic use. Flavor is sweet and moderately bitter, soft tropical fruit and a hint of pine.

Beerathon (1444) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Nice hop forward IPA with a big citrus nose, along with a bit of pine, and a dry finish. Soft carbonation and bitter. Pretty good.

nealblind (972) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Clear gold pour, big foamy head. Aroma dank hops, weedy, peachy. Tastes resinous grassy hops some caramel. Resinous residue on the palate.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy orange with a large and lasting off whtie head. Powerful nose that has strong citrus and tropical notes with a hint of cattiness. A hops showcase from start to finish on the tongue. Lots of citrus and tropical notes with a light caramel malt backbone. Finishes fairly dry. Nice brew.

Sarlacc83 (1153) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Psychedelic label, man. A: Semi-clear gold color with a fluffy, foamy white head. N: Huge grapefruit, orange, and onion nose. (The onion is not overwhelming fortunately.) Biscuit, pine, and leaf act as undertones. Hints of mango and cheddar cheese. T: Bitter, sweet, and fruity. Some onion tanginess shows up here, as well. Pretty good balance here. Malt holds up the hops nicely. M: Dry and resinous. Medium body. Touch of alcohol. O: This is tasty beast. There are enough citrusy hop notes with enough unique elements (the onion doesn’t detract). Definitely one of the better single IPAs I’ve had. Good show.
