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.

Medium fading head with no lacing. Amber. Nose is grapefruit pith and some orange zest. Bitter grapefruit hoppiness. Good, not great-needs some malt back, but this beer is about showcasing the single varietal hop and I think it does that well.

On tap at Ventiís South. Solid India Pale Ale. Good hoppy citrus and pine balanced with medium sweetness. Bitter resiny finish that lingers. Tasty.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy, light pine, and spicy hops, plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 4/10/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, with a good amount of citrus and tropical fruit notes
Appearance: It pours a cloudy caramel color with a nice sized white head and good lacing
Flavor: Tastes light-mid sweet and fairly heavy bitter, similar to the nose plus a nice pine presence too
Palate: The body is medium, it has a creamy feel, some smoothness, and a rather dry finish as well
Overall Impression: I was fairly impressed by this one. It is a nice IPA with a good hoppy presence to it. Those who like their IPAs to have a nice citrus and tropical fruit presence should enjoy this one for sure. I know I did.

stout_skier (3) - - APR 6, 2012 does not count
Very good look, lots of lace, copper color. Gray amount of head. Lots of citrus, tropical fruits and some pine. Flavor is much of the same with a solid malt backbone providing the sweetness to balance the hops. Michel itís a medium, with soft carbonation that gives the beer a nice feel. Very drinkable, a solid offering from elysian.

Steve_0 (3166) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2012
Poured a hazy amber, with an off white head. Smells of mango, grapefruit, citrus, and a hint of caramel. Taste is very simple, pretty smooth, with a medium bitter finish. Kind of watery mouthfeel, but very drinkable. Not bad.

Hazy copper pour with a one finger white head. Big juicy tropical fruit and melon in the nose with super clean low alpha bitterness. Medium body with a very quenching palate and fruity finish. I love this hop.

Bomber. Pours clear deep copper with 3-finger creamy off-white head and copious lace. Looks great. Nose is that great citric feety passion fruity Nelson Sauvin hop, some caramel malt. Tastes very resiny, bitter, and with the characteristic NS hop flavor, with caramel malt, and finishing resiny notes. A lot of late passion fruit.
