COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savant IPA :: Savant Just Knows Itís a Great Beer.

Without knowing quite why, Savant IPA knows a lot. It knows that itís 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 itís bittered with Northwest Chinook and finished with fruit-juicy New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. It knows that itíll 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 whoís counting), but what it mainly knows is that itís a great beer.

stantheman (731) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Shared bottle at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. This is very highly tilted toward hops. Citrus hop flavors predominate, but thereís a malted aftertaste as well. Maybe the best hoppy IPA Iíve ever had!

Fresh sample on tap at Maloneís in Vancouver. A turgid and murky brew of a brownish orange cast. Big grapefruit flavour here, though no oneíd ever mistake this for a grapefruit cooler. All beer here, friends. Still a great one!

Pailhead (5445) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, mango, citrus, light lemon, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a yellow-tinged off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the side of the glass. The flavor starts with oranges, tropical fruits, and faint mango. There is some faint caramel in the background. The finish has light grapefruit and light fruitiness. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.

GandGKevin (932) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Jason and Dawn. Thanks! Not much going on in the aroma department. Just a very slight citrus component. Earthy hop and biscuit malt flavors. Really faint citrus flavor. Overall a decent IPA.

brigg (535) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 5, 2012
(1pt 6oz bottle) Clear orange amber with a thick, smooth off-white head. Aroma of grass, floral notes, and fruit (tropical, mango, apricot, slight orange). Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Fairly strong sweetness, caramel and toffee, but strong hop bitterness dries it out; pine, grass; resiny; some vegetable and funky notes, too. A good IPA and a little bit different from most.

matty (241) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2012
22 oz. bottle on 7/5/12. Pours a light copper color with an off-white head that settles to a thin film. Pine notes in the aroma along with spicy hops and sweet malt in the background. Medium/thin body, slight hop taste on the tongue. Leans a liittle to the malt side. Slghty dry finish. Worth trying.

cstuartj (1017) - Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bight gold color, dense thick head and tons of laceing. Nice earthy hop grass nose. Dark feel on the tongue, good hops and citrus finish.

Syzzer (605) - Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Pours an interesting dark orange color with an off-white creamy head. Striking hops that mellow, but there is a notable bitter finish

gregwilsonstl (1277) - Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Cloudy dark copper. Citrus. Unique spicy hops. Very hoppy in every stage from aroma to aftertaste, but balanced.

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a reddish orange color with an off white thin head. Smells of pine and a bit of brown sugar. Nice roasted sugary tastes with heavy pine needles flavors. Good rounded beer. I am enjoying

RumRunner101 (866) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Aroma is piny with tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, tangerine. Body is full, smooth, oily mouth feel. Well layered IPA with initial fruity flavors that fades into a grassy and lemony bitterness. Finish is long and bitter. Nice.
