3/21/13. 22oz bottle thanks to bitbucket. Hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Laid back malty aroma and flavor with citrus and earthy hops. Maybe a touch of age. Not bad

I believe this is now called Savant IPA...pour is hazy orange with white head, aroma brought big notes of white fruits, pine, grass, some grapefruit, bitter orange peel, some slight caramel, toffee, slight earth, spice notes. Taste is a mix of lots of bitter orange, grapefruit, some slight pine, grass notes, hints of earth, grain, spice into some caramel, just slightly getting off the bitter notes, finishing bitter. Wish I got more of the Nelson hops, but its very tasty, good mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Sample at the Pike Street location (as "Savant IPA"). Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium bone white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and caramel malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrus hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

michaelinwa (611) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Long overdue to try this local. Pours a slightly murky golden color, moderate head, and a pretty big hoppy aroma with nice pineapple notes. Taste is moderately bitter with some nice hop complexity working in there along with a tasty malt backbone. Bigger and more complex beer than the 6.3 abv would suggest, which I always like. A nice local surprise that I should have tried long ago. Will definitely be coming back to this one.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Good sized light beige head of fine bubbles. Lots of sweet malts in the aroma with some caramel, mild smoke???, some oranges and pine. Color is a cloudy dark orange. Flavor is mostly malts backed up with some nice lemon and grapefruit hoppiness. Balanced pretty well and not overpowering with the bitterness. Finishes malty with a lingering bitterness. This is a very well rounded IPA.

dmac (4173) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2013
22oz bomber from Spirits Lacey. Poured an unattractive cloudy orangey/amber body with a frothy large bubble mostly white head. Aroma is interesting, dank overall with notes of rotting oranges, wet pine needles, cat piss, bad raisin bread dough, old grapefruits. Flavor of rotting flowers, cat piss, bad citrus, dough. Full bodied that is super creamy with an avergae duration on the aftertaste. Solid beer.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright copper body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that left some delicate lacing. The nose is a bit of a let down, itís a little overly dominant on the caramel malt, obscuring the hops too much. The Nelson seems to have a bit of trouble standing up to the malt profile and the crystal malt specifically. The flavor is along those same lines, too sweet and full of caramel to let the hops shine. Just a light bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with too much clingy sweetness and soft carbonation. Pretty darn far down on my list of Nelson beers. I dislike sweet IPAs, they donít make sense to me.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Foco. This beer is now named Savant IPA, so that should be aliased here. Pours a hazy, bright, deep reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fruity, grapefruity, white grape, citrusy, somewhat spicy, fairly potent hoppy, light ganja aroma. Quite spicy and floral hoppy, somewhat piney, big grapefruity hoppy, mildly sweet malty flavor with some herbal, bitterness on the finish. Another solid Elysian IPA, though I donít think I enjoy it as much as some of their others.
