COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savant IPA :: Savant Just Knows It’s a Great Beer.

Without knowing quite why, Savant IPA knows a lot. It knows that it’s built on Northwest 2-row malt, with touches of Munich, Cara-red and C-120 Crystal. It knows that it weighs in at around 6.3% alcohol by volume, that it’s bittered with Northwest Chinook and finished with fruit-juicy New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. It knows that it’ll be back as the first Manic IPA from Elysian Brewing in the new year of 2014, available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. It knows that 22 ounces is the same as a touch over 650 milliliters (and 13012 drops for anyone who’s counting), but what it mainly knows is that it’s a great beer.

Marsiblursi (3042) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark reddish amber with a sand coloured head. The aroma is way too malty with notes of caramel, honey, toffee, almond paste and cookies. Undertones of passion fruit, pineapple, apples, canned fruits grass, citrus, gun powder and Swedish snus. The flavour light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and tiny acidic with muddy/sticky malt and resinous/woodsy/citric hops. The mouthfeel is light sticky, light numbing and light astringent with a soft carbonation. Nettles, resin, grapfruit and robust malt on the finish. Medium bodied.

jcos (1600) - Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Location/Date:Beer split with Dave on December 14th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours copper.
  Aroma: Aroma of grapefruit.
  Taste: Medium bitterness, caramel.
    Palate:Medium body lingering aftertaste.

Summary: Done with first 1000 ratings, onto the next. A solid IPA, I’m guessing it wasn’t the freshest so the amount of bitterness and pine was decreased. But solid nonetheless.

HogTownHarry (6135) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
March 16, 2012 - on draught at Cole’s. Slightly hazy amber-gold with a decent creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Smells fantastic - catty, no sweetness, only a bit of alcohol - really smells like fresh cut marijuana buds - pungent and sticky (8+). Taste follows, but it is a bit sweet, gluten-y grain more than sticky ick - a bit more alcohol presence too, but the aroma kicks the flavour’s butt. Average body, decent carbonation, quite astringent and a long pungent catty finish - really grabs the palate.

_angst_ (3150) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
Bomber @ OT. Pours clear pale amber with a creamy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, slightly malty and slightly hoppy with white bread, caramel, green grapes, moist grass, white grapes, red currants and hints of vanilla fudge and alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and herbal with bread, moist grass, white grapes, lemon balm, wood, gooseberries, moist wood, unripe mango and hints of caramel, wet leaves and pine. Mouthfeel is smooth, round and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and herbal with moist grass, wood, pine, green grapes, gooseberries and lemon balm. Possibly a bit unfresh but still holds up well.

DrSilverworm (7217) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
22oz bottle, thanks to parents. Poured in snifter. Interesting hop flavor - resin, tropical fruit, orange, pineapple. Seemingly big malt present, but it works well with the hops. and is less caramelish than usual - maybe bready, some pepperiness. Some grapefruit in the aftertaste. Super smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Very easy to drink, great to wash a sandwich down with. Medium body, totally hazy amber color. Off-white khaki head that leaves great lace all around. Great bigger bitter taste, little sweetness in the finish. Very enjoyable, interesting, and sessionable single-hop IPA. My first showcase of the NZ Nelson Sauvin. Love getting educated.

Svesse (6486) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2012
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 23 Sep 2012) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with red fruit, citrus, blood orange and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, orange peel, blood orange, red fruit and a generous resiny bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and solid IPA with a fresh hop profile.Very nice.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
In short: A clean, semi-sweet and very fruity golden IPA. Good.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase, bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium beige head leaving good lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is dominated by fruity hops that focus on tropical fruits such as mangos, pineapples but also peaches and other juicy fruits of the kind. Taste has all the same juicy fruit hops as in the aroma and they are all layered over a backbone of semi-sweet cookies. The resinous nature of the extra-fruity hops bring a sensation of fruit juice concentrate. Solid bitterness. Sweet at first, resinous fruity hops in the finish, overall well balanced. Another bomber that went down in record time… and the real downside of drinking so much beer every night is I have a lot less beer the day after.

Suttree (5289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Thanks to curly for the trade! Cloudy orange, loose white head. Smells - no kidding - like grapefruit juice. Clean, crisp citrus flavors, with some piney, resiny flavors as it warms. Just enough malt flavors to keep it interesting. Very good stuff

notalush (5070) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Had to try this, since I’m such a fan of this hop - clear copper, sudsy lace - there is a light sweetness and tea-like character in the nose, but the zesty and tropical notes of the hops are most prominent - medium carbonation - flavor has a light, clean sweetness up front, but it is mostly dry throughout, especially in the finish - the malt backbone mostly stays out of the way, but provide a sturdy base for the potent, peppery/spicy hop flavors - quite bitter, but not in any way abrasive - finish is very dry - very solid IPA.
