The aroma is wonderful, loaded with pine, orange, lemon, some sweet malt laying low. The flavor starts with a malt sweetness that quickly gives way to the hops. Crisp and clean finish.

Aroma of pungent weed and tangy bitter citrus. Pours hazy orange with a decent head. Flavor is hop dominated with notes of citrus and pepper. Not alot of balance. Lingering bitterness. Dry. Good.

10 oz. @ Baileys. Pours sort-of hazy apple juice. Aroma is sticky-hops. Flavor is straight hop blast. Quite sweet. If you like hops, you’ll probably like this.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orange with a two finger bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, dirty dishwater malty, what the hell, I thought this was a huge Pacific Northwest IPA. The taste is bettter, it has a sweet fruity taste to it, that horrible caramelly malt driven flavor is less intense in the taste. Body is medium, carbonation is soft. Overall I was unimpressed, this is not a NW IPA, badass label though.

On tap, Pours a hazy orange color with a good head and good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, citrus and pine. Tastes of citrus, orange and tart with a good hop bite. Mouthfeel is pretty light for an ipa, finishes dry. Overall this is a great ipa I would recommend it to people who like hop bombs.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey-colored pour with an off-white head and good lacing. Nose is pine, orange, spice and malt. Taste recapitulates the nose, with the spice notes coming to the front. Palate is smooth and lush. I would recommend bringing this the next time you are invited for dinner.

Growler from Labodega. Hazy light amber with a small off white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, sugary caramel and some pine. Flavor starts sweet and malty and finishes with a strong bitterness and some light alcohol. Medium body with average carbonation and a nice dry finish. Nice IPA, lots of hop flavor, aroma and bitterness with a good malt presence.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour a orange rusty amber. The nose is pine. The pallet has a apricot and peach flavor with a bit of floral grapefruit and pine. The finish is quite bitter, astringent, an tannic. Like a over steeped tea. Not my favorite Elysian IPA
