4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Very floral and citrus hop nose with a surprising malt backbone. Clear deep copper coloured body is topped by a generous and lasting white head that coats the glass with lacing. Nice caramel and toasted malt backbone supports citrus and floral hop flavours. Moderate bitterness keeps the sweetness in check but isnít overly strong. Medium body with decent SPF bubbled carbonation. Lovely palate. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room. Not re-rating, but in the bottle I didnít enjoy this nearly as much. It seemed a bit thin and one-dimensional. I would have rated the bottled version (from Liberty - Commercial in June 2012) as much as a full point lower.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

Cloudy orange pour. Sharp hop bitterness in nose. Very sharp bitterness I am assuming from high AA in the nelson. Bitterness lingers.
