COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The star of the show in this Tangletown-produced beer is the citrus and passion fruit aroma and flavor of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. Whatever its name, it’s the same great beer, bittered with Northwest Chinook and drenched with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. Brewed with Maris-Otter pale, Munich and Cara-Red and Crisp 120° Starting gravity 17° Plato, 6.25% ABV, 66 IBUs. Don’t give up. We know you’ll get it. Think. Drink. It’s wiser than the others. Savant IPA. It’s the same terrific beer, with the same monkey, and a different name.

Quevillon (2407) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, - JUN 2, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, May 30, 2013. Honey copper, small head. Citrus hoppy aroma, notes of sweet spice. Taste very dry hops, a little spicy, very bitter. Good but under average!

bgb1991 (95) - AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2014
Big bitey hops in this one. A bit metallic, classis of sauvon for me. Im not a fan of the balance in this beer, too sweet at the start, too astringent at the finish.

bigrond (1443) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2014
this was a middle of the road IPA, at best. But it’s priced like the rarest, once a decade type of brew. Falls so far short of the expectations solely based on price. think twice before trying this donkey disguised as a thoroughbred

gripweed57 (517) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Labelled as Savant. Amber orange color with a rocky beige head. Mild citrus and pine hop aroma. Bitter complex malty hop flavor has notes of tropical fruit and pine hops. Nicely balanced with a big hoppy finish.

Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Bomber. ( as Savant) Unclear orange brown, off-white foam mostly fades. Tropical fruity citrus hop aroma, some pine. Lightly bitter tropical fruity Kiwi hop taste dominates, some citrus, evergreen and faint spice, mild caramel malts. Average carbonation, lighter-medium bodied, more aggressively hopped. Very nice. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bright light orange clear pour with a little white head. Amazing floral hop taste, with a nose to match: extremely unique and floral (probably from NZ hops), very very juicy and nice, grapefruit citrus as well, rounded out nicely with a subtle but smooth carbonation and mouthfeel. This is a very good standard, drink every day IPA with a juicy flare adding unique complexity.

pinkie (427) - New York, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours an orange color, cloudy and with a dark melon like hue from deep within it. Fat creamy head of khaki foam that left plenty of clinging lace. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus. Light fresh orange on passion fruit. No pine in the nose until it warmed a bit then it was earthy pine needles. A beautiful scent of brown sugar for malt. Taste is outrageously good. The fruits are juicy and a bit tart too so they fully engage the palate. The earthy pine is light and the the malt becomes a soft light caramel. The body approaches medium but stays light. There’s a bit of sticky resin at the back to coat the throat and leaves a bitter that starts soft and then increases in intensity after the swallow. Lingering after tatse of caramel, sweet fruit and pine needles. Brilliant beer.

I loved this beer. This had a sensual caramel that stayed generally light but was like a ribbon underneath this beer. The fruit was bountiful and the bitter started soft and then became a bit stronger as it lingered.

chuckstout (235) - Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Lemon, guava, citrus, pours a nice Amber/orange with a dense off white head and excellent lacing. Nice body and mouthfeel. Bitter rind, caramel, biscuit and dry finish

nj_BierMaven (96) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bomber bottle. Expected more hop aroma. Nice bitterness balanced with enjoyable malt profile. But in the end, meh, nothing outstanding or memorable, just another IPA.

hopdog (8530) - 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.

ajnepple (1676) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2014
On tap at Freshcraft. Orange amber appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of pine, rye, fruity hops (citrus, tropical) and spicy hops. Similar flavor with moderate bitterness and a crisp, medium body. Pretty tasty.
