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.

Smells like apricot and apple. Big fruity head. Great carpet lacing with creamy head. Pours cloudy orange with soft carbonation. Creamy texture. IPA bite of bitterness at end but well-balanced. Versatile beer. On tap at Garrickís head.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a gorgeous hazy amber with thick white head. Strong and inviting grapefruit aroma, very little hop. Mild on the palate initially with citrus and bitterness picking up shortly after. Grassy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Cloudy amber goodness with puffy off-white head; good retention and lacing. Big floral and fruit aromas - orange, grapefruit, mango, apricot - with a pine/resin bite over soft, earthy caramel malt backing. Lightly sweet, lasting but not overpowering hop bitterness. Medium-bodied and juicy smooth. Need to try again to be sure, but that first pint puts it among my favourite IPAs.

Nice goto IPA. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Smells fruity with a touch of pine. Flavor is in harmony with the aroma. Fruity, notes of pine and mildly sweetened (honey). Ends with a nice sweet hoppy finish. This is my first from Elysian and I can't wait to try more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nittanytide (239) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Cloudy deep copper color. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is watery on the mid-palate then floral and citrusy, with a big, dry, grassy finish. Good IPA.

Piney, floral, yet no juicy hops :(. Hoppy bitterness doesn't linger; plenty malty but still not my style. Tasty, not great.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, fairly hazy, fine sediment floats about, large pillowy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft pithy nose, some citrus, a bit of resin.   Fairly good example of an IPA.   Not overly bitter, soft malt base.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Lingering resin and pith, but its not over the top.   Seems pretty refreshing and somewhat bright.   Pith, citrus peel, and soft resin lingers.   Fairly tasty!

Dry and grassy. Floral notes with a bit of tropical character in the background. Moderately bitter. Pretty light.

UDBeernut (1899) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bomber pours golden amber, crater rock off white head. Nose is pine. Taste has loads of pine, hop resin, and earth. Did I mention lacing coated my glass? Body is solid and finish is dry. A solid IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 On tap at alibi. Hazy gold. Great lacing. Smells like an IPA. tastes like one too. Prominent grapefruit aroma. Caramel taste. Barrel aged on tap at St. Augustine’s. Now THIS is bourbon-y. Great aroma from barrel, and the taste and palate are perfectly expected. Rating edited based on BA.
