COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hfmejias (937) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Poured a nice cloudy copper, big off white head that left lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruits, floral hops and some malts. Kind of a tropical taste, actually quite sweet and fruity for an IPA (not in a bad way), very nicely balanced with the bitterness of the hops. Interesting beer, very enjoyable.

GandGKevin (932) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Jason and Dawn. Thanks! Not much going on in the aroma department. Just a very slight citrus component. Earthy hop and biscuit malt flavors. Really faint citrus flavor. Overall a decent IPA.

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a reddish orange color with an off white thin head. Smells of pine and a bit of brown sugar. Nice roasted sugary tastes with heavy pine needles flavors. Good rounded beer. I am enjoying

22 ounce bottle. Labelled as Savant. Amber orange color with a rocky beige head. Mild citrus and pine hop aroma. Bitter complex malty hop flavor has notes of tropical fruit and pine hops. Nicely balanced with a big hoppy finish.

agl108 (883) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Shared 22oz. bomber. Poured hazy amber with chunks of floaties. Sweet malts balanced well with notes of pine and citrus. Slightly spicy, funky finish. Medium bodied. The Nelson Sauvin hops seem a bit Tomahawk-esque.

RumRunner101 (866) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Aroma is piny with tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, tangerine. Body is full, smooth, oily mouth feel. Well layered IPA with initial fruity flavors that fades into a grassy and lemony bitterness. Finish is long and bitter. Nice.

bwa5879 (789) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bright light orange clear pour with a little white head. Amazing floral hop taste, with a nose to match: extremely unique and floral (probably from NZ hops), very very juicy and nice, grapefruit citrus as well, rounded out nicely with a subtle but smooth carbonation and mouthfeel. This is a very good standard, drink every day IPA with a juicy flare adding unique complexity.

zoucrew102 (788) - - JUL 28, 2013
Bomber. Sweet passion fruit and citrus aroma with some hops. Pours cloudy amber colored with a thick of white head with good lacing. Passion fruit and some citrus to start with dry, hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Ventiís South. Solid India Pale Ale. Good hoppy citrus and pine balanced with medium sweetness. Bitter resiny finish that lingers. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small head. Slightly sweet with citrus/fruity hop aromas. Great fruity/citrus hop flavor with a hint of pine. A light caramel malt backbone and a hint of yeast. Very nice fruity but bitter finish.
