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.

Cloudy,copper in color. Thick creamy white head. Good lacing. The aroma smells like citrus and pine trees. There is complexity in the aroma. Medium bitterness. Thin texture with medium carbonation. Aftertaste sticks with you well after the initial drink. Very smooth IPA and very sessionable.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small head. Slightly sweet with citrus/fruity hop aromas. Great fruity/citrus hop flavor with a hint of pine. A light caramel malt backbone and a hint of yeast. Very nice fruity but bitter finish.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a clear amber with lasting pillowy tan head. Aroma is bright Sauvin hops, loads of citrus. Taste is puckeringly bitter and delicious but thereís little malt backing to speak of. Finish is tongue tingling hops, some grapefruit pith. Overall very good but I wish there was more balance to it.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Big and bangin nelson sav hoppy fruity aroma with a good deal of citrus and lighter yeasty notes. Unfortunately the flavor comes across just a touch too harsh, and even a bit cat pissy, but still has a good dose of fruity hops and spicy yeast. Pretty good.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Draught. Rather ordinary looking IPA. Wonderful floral aroma, with some forest-y tunes. Full bodied, well balanced the brewer allowed the malt its song. Lingering hop finish.

pinkzambia (1566) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Tap: Clear copper color with a small white head and sticky lacing all about. Mellow floral aroma and pine. Strong bitter aftertaste of extreme grapefruit rind. Pretty solid IPA

PhillyCraft (3643) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle with Pat, poured a lowly carbíd orange color with soapy white head and random medium lacing. Aromas are the cheesiest, buttery nelson hops you can find. Kind of like a plate of cheez-its with butterscotch on top. Cool. Bitter on tongue. Very good ipa. Maybe a little too sweet.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle. Split with and courtesy of Vinnie. Pours a clear reddish orange with specks of hop sediment suspended throughout and a fat, foamy, sudsy off-white head. The aroma is so, so cheesy, oniony, and grassy with a bunch of melon, passionfruit, and ripe orange. The flavor is very odd, but good: soft notes of cheddar cheese up front with a bunch of onion, soft hop resin, and some subtly bitter orange flavors as it finishes. The palate is so, so, so smooth and soft and the carbonation is present enough to allow the beer to stand on its own two legs, but minimal enough that the beer nearly evaporates on oneís tongue. Really cool, different IPA.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2012
really dank marshmallow and orange candy nose, heavy syrup and sugar. Peanut through the front, mod is orange candy, light gum and wet wood in finish. Palate is soft, oily, flat.
