3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice hop aroma on the nose. Very dominant hop mouthful, with a subtle malt after tone. The palate lingers with the hops more than anything. Solid ipa.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nicely hoppy nose with some grass and floral notes along with a hint of citrus. Taste is bitter, but feels heavy and stronger than it actually is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, but in the milder side. Taste was on the tropical fruit side, begins sweet, but then ends with a nice hop bitterness. Iíve enjoyed the few Elysian beers that Iíve gotten to try and you can add this one on there as well. Solid beer and awesome label (they make some really cool labels on their beers).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bomber. Pours a beautiful clear dark honey color with a medium thickness dense foamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits. Bitter taste. Thereís some fruity malty character, but the bitterness of the hops dominates. Bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, caramel, some watermelon. The flavor is initially big cat pee, melons, citrus, mild bitterness, dusty round malty profile. A bit of an odd heat/bitterness in this. Interesting beer. Not bad. Cool label. The whole package is odd, very tropical and spicy, even floral. It works.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dull tan, moderate aroma with a bit each of malt, fruit and hop. Medium bitterness, dash of alcohol, fairly sweet malts until the fruity hop character slides in.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Powerful fruit and citrus aroma, reminding me of candied apples. The nose immediately draws you in to the beer. It is a slightly hazy orange amber. The malt is complex but overall sweet. Caramel, toffee and earthy notes give way to piney hop flavors, finish astringent and dry. Bitterness is lasting but not overwhelming. West coast IPA brewers should definitely learn from the malt complexity. Hell, Elysian should learn how to translate this to their other brews! This beer is fantastic.
