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.

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.

Agree with the last rater that said that this was less nelson than many of the Nelson Sauvin hop driven beers that Iíve had recently. Probably a bit too old I guess. I couldnít find a bottled on date. Good IPA none the less. Although it didnít stand up to the Pliny that we had. Unfair comparison I guess ;) Tropical fruit with some grapefruit. Good beer. Hops needs to be a bit fresher and more lively. Nice spice element. Good complexity. Cool label and name.

Bight gold color, dense thick head and tons of laceing. Nice earthy hop grass nose. Dark feel on the tongue, good hops and citrus finish.

A better than average IPA that hits many appreciable notes: grove citrus, mellon, with a dry edge. This is very drinkable, but a tad thin in body for my liking. Overall, a nice 22oz bottle from Elysian.

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

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.

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

Pours clear pale amber with three fingers of pillowy light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, caramel, malt, mild floral and pine. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter finish. (4/5) A middle of the pack effort for Elysian: Better than Loser, similar to Superfuzz, not as good as Space Dust or Avatar Jasmine. (And, holy hell, how many Elysian IPAís have I tried?) A solid, pleasant hop-forward IPA with a nice amount of bitterness. (15/20)
