3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I believe this is now called Savant IPA...pour is hazy orange with white head, aroma brought big notes of white fruits, pine, grass, some grapefruit, bitter orange peel, some slight caramel, toffee, slight earth, spice notes. Taste is a mix of lots of bitter orange, grapefruit, some slight pine, grass notes, hints of earth, grain, spice into some caramel, just slightly getting off the bitter notes, finishing bitter. Wish I got more of the Nelson hops, but its very tasty, good mouthfeel.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of pine and orange in it, as well as some sweetness from the biscuit malt. The flavor is more complex. I get a lot of mango and apricot notes at first, along with some biscuit malt. As I drink more I start to get some peach and other tropical fruit. The bitterness level is low but the hop flavor is very strong. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Parkway Tavern, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of resinous hops and pine, caramel malt and some herbally / pot-like notes. Flavour of weed-like hops, herbal hops and sufficient toasted malt to back. A bit too weed-like, but still well-made. Good.
