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.

nj_BierMaven (116) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bomber bottle. Expected more hop aroma. Nice bitterness balanced with enjoyable malt profile. But in the end, meh, nothing outstanding or memorable, just another IPA.

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.

NikkTwist (1971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2014
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.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2014
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.
