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.

IPagan5 (106) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Cloudy orange pour. Sharp hop bitterness in nose. Very sharp bitterness I am assuming from high AA in the nelson. Bitterness lingers.

thehinge (284) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Murky orange pour. Thin, off white head with very little carbonation. Hoppy taste on the front and back in. Good example of the style.

Dark golden color for an ipa, bitter with nice fruit from Nelson hops, subtle aroma at least for me

MunBro (821) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
A good IPA, but not a great one. Has nice citrus hop flavours and a beautiful pour, but I enjoyed most of Elysianís other IPAs more.

patricks110 (2123) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
A nice fruity IPA with tons of complex fresh hop flavor. Pours a slightly reddy golden orange with a thin white head. Peppery and spicy hops with a bit of floral flavour. A nice full flavored hopped up brew.

Bookseeb (131) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Appearance is a cloudy orange amber color supporting a healthy head leaving nice lace. Smell has a nice backbone of sweet malt and citrusy hop aroma. Taste of the sweet malt and big on the grapefruit flavor with a nice balance of hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A very nice easy drinking IPA.

Draft - Bold citrus and pine hops. Clear copper with a decent white head. Bitter pine, citrus peel and a bit of caramel. Long bitter finish.

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2015
On tap at Old Line Bistro in Beltsville MD. Pours amber and has quite potent hops aroma. Taste is quite citrusy and bitter. Delicious and knocks you on your butt if an empty stomach. Good IPA.
