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.

Pours an interesting dark orange color with an off-white creamy head. Striking hops that mellow, but there is a notable bitter finish

Cloudy dark copper. Citrus. Unique spicy hops. Very hoppy in every stage from aroma to aftertaste, but balanced.

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 (894) - 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.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours hazy copper with a dirty white head. I canít really pinpoint any good deScriptors in the nose, but its very hop forward. I do know that Iím not the biggest fan of the hop, but that doesnít mean its bad. Thereís enough malt to counteract what I donít enjoy. This is a fine beer but there are plenty Iíd rather drink.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with light tan head that provides good lacing. The aroma is grass and citrus with strong sweet caramel malt. The flavor brings out more of the hops, apricot, citrus, and toffee.

The pour is a translucent auburn color with a moderately full, white, creamy, pillowy head which settles to a thin, rocky layer and leaves scattered, drippy lace. The nose has toasted toffee, resins, light rustic, some tangerine, and faint passionfruit. The flavor is similar, still toffee, still resinous, some rustic tones, passionfruit and stonefruit, and toasted breads. The palate is more than medium, soft to lively, velvety, and slightly drying. The finish is more rustic, drying, stonefruit, and resinous. Actually a very nice beer to drink with the balance yet a moderately high bitterness. The malt base was great, really making this more of a hybrid IPA. The Nelson Sauvin notes were pleasant and complementary but not overly done. Nice beer.
