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.

Cakes (383) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2012
Probably the most "refined " beer that I have had over the past two years. This is the real deal, the final product Very refined. You would think that they have been brewing this for centuries. Passion fruit in an IPA? Brilliant! Only New Zealand hops? Home run! At the end of 2012, this might be the best beer that I have had all year.

MunBro (615) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
A good IPA, but not a great one. Has nice citrus hop flavours and a beautiful pour, but I enjoyed most of Elysianís other IPAs more.

patricks110 (1837) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
A nice fruity IPA with tons of complex fresh hop flavor. Pours a slightly reddy golden orange with a thin white head. Peppery and spicy hops with a bit of floral flavour. A nice full flavored hopped up brew.

Bookseeb (123) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Appearance is a cloudy orange amber color supporting a healthy head leaving nice lace. Smell has a nice backbone of sweet malt and citrusy hop aroma. Taste of the sweet malt and big on the grapefruit flavor with a nice balance of hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A very nice easy drinking IPA.

Ferris (6243) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Draft - Bold citrus and pine hops. Clear copper with a decent white head. Bitter pine, citrus peel and a bit of caramel. Long bitter finish.

BierMeHoos (210) - Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2015
On tap at Old Line Bistro in Beltsville MD. Pours amber and has quite potent hops aroma. Taste is quite citrusy and bitter. Delicious and knocks you on your butt if an empty stomach. Good IPA.

Matt_Foran (73) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Nice hop aroma on the nose. Very dominant hop mouthful, with a subtle malt after tone. The palate lingers with the hops more than anything. Solid ipa.

maxwelldeux (3956) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nicely hoppy nose with some grass and floral notes along with a hint of citrus. Taste is bitter, but feels heavy and stronger than it actually is.

bigda83 (317) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, but in the milder side. Taste was on the tropical fruit side, begins sweet, but then ends with a nice hop bitterness. Iíve enjoyed the few Elysian beers that Iíve gotten to try and you can add this one on there as well. Solid beer and awesome label (they make some really cool labels on their beers).

Brentv (441) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2015
From bomber. Pours a beautiful clear dark honey color with a medium thickness dense foamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits. Bitter taste. Thereís some fruity malty character, but the bitterness of the hops dominates. Bitter finish.
