COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale orange, fruity hoppy and strong. A bold, unapologetically hoppy northwest-style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Munich and Crystal malts with a portion of sugar. Bittered and finished with Chinook, Centennial and whole flower Cascade hops all over the place.

Cloudy orange, fairly sizey white head. Very hoppy, vegetal, resiny aroma. Flavor is earthy, piney, but the finish is rather clean and crisp. Some nice smoky notes throughout. Really tasty and satisfying.

extremely drinkable with luschious hop character. Fantastic hop nose. although based on the Big Time Scarlet Fire this IPA has morphed into its own unique beer. Excellent on cask!

On tap at Capital Hill Brewery. My favorite IPA from the Elysian. It is not only full of hops but also a malt presence that makes you want more. The alcohol is prominent part of the flavor profile. What a great IPA!
