This is the perfect beer for a burger on a hot Saturday afternoon. Dill up front with a balance of citrus and malt in the back. The finish is a balance of lemon and dill again. One of the better brews from Elysian.

I'm not usually a pale ale guy, but this one is superb. Perfectly balanced. Incredibly flavorful malt base, with just the right amount of hops to keep things interesting. Super drinkable. This is a beer I could see being a go to beer for me, if it were readily available where I live. Just nice!! And the name -- irony incarnate!

Pours Orange and caramel. Taste is floral and lots of citrus. Light bitterness. Nice long finish. A very very tasty beer on a summer day. Would by again.

Hazy orangeish copper with a generous foamy white head. Nice balanced and complex aroma full of earthy sweet toffee with a sweet grapefruit zest and sweet leafy/floral hop tone. Flavor starts with a sweet and malty toffee flavor, combined with a gentle floral/lemony bitterness finished with a leafy hop flavor. All very balanced and very tasty.

Delicious beverage. Not very bitter but enough of a savory taste and aftertaste to keep you wanting more.

I hate all things corporate, so the label sold me. 22oz bomber poured a full pint into a Sam Smith’s bubble pint. Glowing rustic orange colour, hazy, with a sudsy beige head that fades to a thin film. Nice lacing. The nose has citric hops, mostly faint lemon and some pine, which in combination with the massive caramel malt impression, comes off smelling like tropical citrus fruits. Candy sweet caramel/cotton candy flavour with subdued hops, but still very nice citric notes coming through just enough to be considered an APA. In the finish and aftertaste a very unexpected vanilla and biscuit flavour emerges and lingers for sometime, later lending way to mixed citrus fruits again. I have no explanation for what that could be from, but I’m into it! Syrupy mouthfeel almost puts this in the traditional ale category. This is seriously unexpected. As it warms, orange citrus, peach and kiwi flavours surface. This is a very complex, pleasing, malt bomb of an APA. As I’m much of a malt head as a hop head, this was no disappointment to me. Cali IPA drinkers will not like this, but who cares, they’re so one-dimensional with what they expect from their hoppy ales. Overall - of this I approve! fuck commerce!!!

Aroma of caramel/vanilla, floral, and hops. So far an average beer. Pours a nice copper colour with white lacing and a little white head. Taste, wow. A nice mix hop bitterness and rose hip floral. This is a delicious well brewed beer.

Bottle: Clear dark amber with a frothy lingering head. Sweet aroma is yeasty biscuits with honey butter. Smooth, viscous mouthfeel. Great malty sweet flavor mirrors the aroma, with bready yeast and sweet malts, it’s like drinking a freshly baked biscuit slathered with creamed honey. Very good......... A cask version at the Pike St. brewpub had the same yeasty bready flavors but was not nearly as sweet.
