5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer is absolutely fantastic! I’m bummed it will only be available for a limited time. The big hoppy passionfruit aroma and flavor is well balanced with a substantial malt profile. Hoppy AND balanced is the way forward if you ask me. Elysian did a killer job with this one hop Nelson Sauvin wonder

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent IPA. The nose comes in layers of stone and citrus fruit. Rich, yet refreshing and fruity palate of apricot and orange peel. Balanced hop finish. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Parkway Tavern, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of resinous hops and pine, caramel malt and some herbally / pot-like notes. Flavour of weed-like hops, herbal hops and sufficient toasted malt to back. A bit too weed-like, but still well-made. Good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ PW. Clear orange pour with an off-white head with good retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is citrus and citrus blossoms. Medium body and light carbonation. Mango, tangerine, toast, lilikoi and grapefruit. Finish is more bitter A very nice drop and something out of the ordinary from Elysian and the PNW, although the balance is not quite right for me and I wouldn’t call this IPA sessionable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours gold with a sticky white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, even some coconut (is that a fruit or nut? Or are all nuts actually fruit anyways?) Taste has more of the pine resin and orange rind bitterness than I expected from the nose. A really awesome beer.
