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.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Big and bangin nelson sav hoppy fruity aroma with a good deal of citrus and lighter yeasty notes. Unfortunately the flavor comes across just a touch too harsh, and even a bit cat pissy, but still has a good dose of fruity hops and spicy yeast. Pretty good.

3/21/13. 22oz bottle thanks to bitbucket. Hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Laid back malty aroma and flavor with citrus and earthy hops. Maybe a touch of age. Not bad

(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 23 Sep 2012) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with red fruit, citrus, blood orange and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, orange peel, blood orange, red fruit and a generous resiny bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Tasty and solid IPA with a fresh hop profile.Very nice.

after4ever (7411) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Draft at fields. Pours a hazy dark amber with rubied golden edges. Loose sudsy dun colored head. Nice sheety lace coming down the sides of the glass. Piney nose with some toasty caramel and a bit of iced tea showing. Creamy medium body with plenty of lively carb. Caramel, toast, and pine on the mid palate. This is a very appealing ipa despite offering a very conventional flavor profile. Long moderate piney finish.

22oz bottle: Pours a bright copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a fresh resiny hop nose with some light caramel malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and lightly toasted pale malty sweetness with a piny grassy hop flavor and herbal bitterness before a drier, bittersweet finish. Pretty smooth and flavorful.

Smells like apricot and apple. Big fruity head. Great carpet lacing with creamy head. Pours cloudy orange with soft carbonation. Creamy texture. IPA bite of bitterness at end but well-balanced. Versatile beer. On tap at Garrick’s head.

onceblind (6743) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Clear copperish amber with a thick foamy off-cream head. Sweet and sticky nose of grapefruit rind and oranges, with passion fruit and a touch of pine resin and caramel, with a slight biscuitiness. Flavor is citric and bitter with a bunch of orange rind, some slight grapefruitiness, floral bitterness, some sweet mango/tropical undertones, and a sweet caramalty body that still lets the hop bitterness shine through very well.
