COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The star of the show in this Tangletown-produced beer is the citrus and passion fruit aroma and flavor of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. Whatever its name, it’s the same great beer, bittered with Northwest Chinook and drenched with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. Brewed with Maris-Otter pale, Munich and Cara-Red and Crisp 120° Starting gravity 17° Plato, 6.25% ABV, 66 IBUs. Don’t give up. We know you’ll get it. Think. Drink. It’s wiser than the others. Savant IPA. It’s the same terrific beer, with the same monkey, and a different name.

Cask at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Muddy amber color, with creamy small head. Very nice aroma, sweet and fruity; apricot and oranges; some malt. Good toffee flavor, sweetish, with huge hopping; fruity and resiny, piney; lots of bitter oranges and some grapefruit; but also a bit yeasty and just overly bitter, which means the final is then quite harsh. Fresh.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Seems guava to me. Near full bodied. Lots of floral and fruit. Not exactly guava but close. Also grapefruit rind. There’s some light caramel for backbone. It’s marvelously hoppy and bitter.
