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.

Theydon_Bois (10571) - 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 Iíd expected from a west coast IPA.

Ratman197 (10446) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bomber poured a hazy amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, white grapes, grapefruit and a hint of pine. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, earthiness, white grapes and light grapefruit with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10387) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Tap at Mahaffeyís. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is grassy, resin, floral and citrus hops with biscuit malt and fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

adnielsen (9619) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Foco. This beer is now named Savant IPA, so that should be aliased here. Pours a hazy, bright, deep reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fruity, grapefruity, white grape, citrusy, somewhat spicy, fairly potent hoppy, light ganja aroma. Quite spicy and floral hoppy, somewhat piney, big grapefruity hoppy, mildly sweet malty flavor with some herbal, bitterness on the finish. Another solid Elysian IPA, though I donít think I enjoy it as much as some of their others.

hopdog (9340) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2014
On tap at Capone's. Poured an amber color with a thin sized off white head. Floral hops, some fruitiness, a bit toasty and a lighter sweetness.

Sammy (9141) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
A tasty IPA, fresh from Premier Gourmet. Pours abundant head on an orange coloured body. Smooth mouthfeel relative for an IPA. Fruity, some bubble gum, light apple, orange, grape. Not as much as possible flavour derived from this hop, but still pretty good.

GT2 (8960) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
651mL. Pours clear orange topped by rocky buttermilk foam. Sweet Mayan onion nose with orange candy drops. Taste is butterscotch candy with mild sweet onion and buttered sweet rolls. Palate is slicker with nutty bitterness. Not bad. No offensive diacetyl. Odd hop bill. Finishes tannic and dry. Slight tea leaf character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Sample at the Pike Street location (as "Savant IPA"). Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium bone white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and caramel malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrus hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
From a bomber. Beautiful bright orange pour with a thick rocky white head. The aroma is gorgeous. Bright tropical fruit, grapefruit and some juicy fruit aroma over a lovely rich pale malt base. A touch of spice that rounds out the sweeter fruity notes on the back. Bright and zesty with a distinct whiff of peach as well. Awesome stuff.

crossovert (8347) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2012
650ml bottle. It pours a deep amber with a foamy off-white head. The smell has a good bit of toasted grain, a nice change of pace in an IPA. It melds with some mangotomatomeloney scents. The flavor is nicely hoppy. Tropical goodness. Some resiny pine and citrus rind on the back end. The malt isnít too sweet and provides some backbone. This beer tastes freaking amazing, good one.
