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.

Definite passion fruit aroma, then full hoppy bitterness in the middle. Excellent, everything I hope for in an IPA.

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.

Rating 1128 - 10.06.2014 - On tap at Beer Revolution. Lots of punchbowl hops) erupting from this foaming amber pour. Sharp hoppy overtones of citrusy, tropical sweetness pronounced into a firm bitterness, a balanced, crisp finish. Quite Nice.

22FL OZ ($4.99 Bottle) this was a very very good IPA. I have only had a few IPAs i can say are better. This is the most well rounded Iíve had in recent history. Find it, drink it, love it, you wonít regret it.

29 May 2015, tap. Dark orange, hazy, some bubbles. Nose is sweet, orange pulp, grapefruit. Ned body and mildly fizzy. Very sweet, malty, bitter orange rind, orange pulp. Nice enough for a sweet ipa but not great.

Yazapapa (9) - - MAY 23, 2015 does not count
Nice malt hop combination for an IPA. Good nose of citrus and it drinks orange to complement the aroma. Nice looking beer, good to throw back while chatting with friends, not crushable, not shareable either.

shoulderbroken (2733) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 13, 2015
Tap at Tsuki To Taiyo. Caramel, bit of a hoppy bite, orange and citrus but malt dominates. Not so bitter. Not much aroma at all.

pintbypint (2941) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
650ml brown bottle. Coppery orange colour, bit hazy. A good looking pour with a large off white head with a very creamy bead, and lots of glass coating, sticky lacing. Aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit and caramel. Taste has some caramel, grass, pine, citrus and some tropical notes. Grapefruit in the aftertaste, medium bittterness. Pretty easy drinker, ok balance.

UXO (814) - CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
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)
