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.

Very good look, lots of lace, copper color. Gray amount of head. Lots of citrus, tropical fruits and some pine. Flavor is much of the same with a solid malt backbone providing the sweetness to balance the hops. Michel itís a medium, with soft carbonation that gives the beer a nice feel. Very drinkable, a solid offering from elysian.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Shared bottle at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. This is very highly tilted toward hops. Citrus hop flavors predominate, but thereís a malted aftertaste as well. Maybe the best hoppy IPA Iíve ever had!

Fresh sample on tap at Maloneís in Vancouver. A turgid and murky brew of a brownish orange cast. Big grapefruit flavour here, though no oneíd ever mistake this for a grapefruit cooler. All beer here, friends. Still a great one!

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.

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.

22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to mostly clear orange color. The aroma has citrus / floral notes to it. The taste has a light body with a nice bitter finish. Overall a good IPA.

Murky orange pour. Thin, off white head with very little carbonation. Hoppy taste on the front and back in. Good example of the style.

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.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a sticky white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, even some coconut (is that a fruit or nut? Or are all nuts actually fruit anyways?) Taste has more of the pine resin and orange rind bitterness than I expected from the nose. A really awesome beer.
