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.

Reddish cloudy color. Bitter finish but fairly balanced. I enjoyed it and would have again if I came across it, but wouldnít seek it out as a gotta have.

Draft at Moriartys. Hazy dark orange pour with spotty off-white foam. Earthy and fruity. Plums and prunes. Spiced bark. Vanilla varnish. Gooseberry. Portobellos. Dark, sharp and jucy. Body feels a bit too watery though. Lasting spicy bite in the finish.

Itís some what hard to write this review because once upon a time this beer was outstanding. Iíve followed it since it was first released and seen it morph into something that lacks the beautiful qualities it once had. Bummer, itís just a basic hoppy redish beer.

Bottle pours a hazy amber color with a thin white top. Nose is fruity. Taste is citrus, mild earthiness and fruit.

hfmejias (925) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Poured a nice cloudy copper, big off white head that left lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruits, floral hops and some malts. Kind of a tropical taste, actually quite sweet and fruity for an IPA (not in a bad way), very nicely balanced with the bitterness of the hops. Interesting beer, very enjoyable.

Fatehunter (1521) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy dark straw colored body. The aroma is mostly pine with some orange. The taste has a malty start with moderate pine and lemon bitterness quickly following. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Bottle: Stunning copper pour. Great clarity, bright color, and a modest tan head with even sheet lacing. A perfect 5 for appearance, no doubt about it. Lively aroma of resin and fruity hops. Plenty of citrus. The taste is more herbal and floral than expected, but still a little resin to boot. Caramel malt. Has a little of the subdued organic vibe that detracts from the intensity of the brew. Not like itís watered down, more like running at 75% strength. Overall itís good, but could have pushed beyond very good with more flavor impact.

harrymel (1539) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013
New release, second time Iíve had it. Thought it was good first time. Unknown bottle date. Pours a golden on amber ale with some soapy white foam that falls to pocks of the same. A little hazy. Smells of limes, celery, b.o., some resin. Nice smell from the hops. Taste is sweet with a little catty flavor and some sweetness on the back end that reminds me of papaya. This was a bit better previously than last time, but good nonetheless. Medium bodied with lighter carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer, would like to see on draft regularly. Serving type: bottle 03-05-2012

Pretty good IPA and neat label too. Deep orange pour. Slightly peaty aroma, but still a lot of fruit and pine. An especially sweet IPA lots of mango, orange, lemon, and other tropical goodness. There is a kick too Ė more floral than bitter. Pretty bubbly mouthfeel.

DuffMan (7501) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy orange amber, lively off white head. Juicy hop profile, sweet tropical fruit with resinous notes. Bright and tasty, moderately bitter. Really good.
