Savant IPA :: Savant Just Knows It’s a Great Beer.

Without knowing quite why, Savant IPA knows a lot. It knows that it’s 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 it’s bittered with Northwest Chinook and finished with fruit-juicy New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. It knows that it’ll 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 who’s counting), but what it mainly knows is that it’s a great beer.

UXO (911) - CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with three fingers of pillowy light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, caramel, malt, mild floral and pine. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5) A middle of the pack effort for Elysian: Better than Loser, similar to Superfuzz, not as good as Space Dust or Avatar Jasmine. (And, holy hell, how many Elysian IPA’s have I tried?) A solid, pleasant hop-forward IPA with a nice amount of bitterness. (15/20)

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 (285) - 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.

miclip (4) - California, USA - MAR 7, 2015 does not count
Dark golden color for an ipa, bitter with nice fruit from Nelson hops, subtle aroma at least for me

MunBro (843) - 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 Elysian’s other IPAs more.

patricks110 (2181) - 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 (132) - 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.

Ferris (8452) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
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.
