COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hfmejias (905) - 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 (1462) - 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 it’s watered down, more like running at 75% strength. Overall it’s good, but could have pushed beyond very good with more flavor impact.

New release, second time I’ve 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

rdixon77 (1121) - Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2013
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 – more floral than bitter. Pretty bubbly mouthfeel.

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.
