4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
More crisp and clean than expected but the hops are still fairly pungent. Fruity Nelson and some earthy dankness. Enjoyed the bomber.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Pours almost clear toffee brown with a smallish head, a thin murky layer of retention, lots of fast steady streams.
Nose: brown sugar toffee malt, lightly toasted, traces of woody apple juice. (lvl-4)-pungency
Mid-palate: bright, (lvl-4)-sweetnesss, (MAIN) red apple, caramel maltd
Finish: alcohol detection, dry stealth mild bitter lingering hopped finish.
Summary: A rather fruity IPA as opposed to herbacious or piney; didnít have a whole lot of passion fruit as advertised, but some citrus. Drinkable, but the finish is a bit flat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
