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.

Dry with a hoppy finish. Needs more malt to balance the hoppy profile. Very drinkable but I would not rush out to buy again.

Jaune doré avec une mousse blanche moyenne. L’arôme d’agrumes (beaucoup d’orange). Le goût est d’agrumes avec un amertume d’houblon en finale. Carbonation moyenne.

rejtable (2309) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours brown with some head and lacing. Much sweeter than I would prefer. Notes of cereal, nuts, dark fruit, apricot and grapefruit bitterness. Not really my style.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, May 30, 2013. Honey copper, small head. Citrus hoppy aroma, notes of sweet spice. Taste very dry hops, a little spicy, very bitter. Good but under average!

On tap at the Knick. Hoppy nose with notes of pear and apricot. Sweet notes. Medium amber, hazy with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium-light carbonation. Starts sweet with fruity esters. Fairly bitter finish with sweet eatery after. Very nice IPA with big hop profile but not a harsh bitterness in the finish or after.

Elysian really does IPAs well. Pours a light gold with thick white head. Nice floral aroma, however not overwhelming. Taste a lot of fruit, slight bitter finish. Another solid IPA from this brewery.

solidfunk (7614) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2013
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 Garrick’s 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
