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.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
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.

Theydon_Bois (12881) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Tap at the Blind Tiger, Manhattan - 01/03/12. Hazy orange colour with a frothy finger of off-white head. Hoppy citrus nose, orange predominates and a touch of lemon. Taste as nose with a certain amount of malts in the body and a tangy finish. Medium bodied/carbonation. OK - not as bitter as I’d expected from a west coast IPA.

bhensonb (12587) - 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.
