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.

Pours a hazy medium golden color with minimal head. Strong aroma of citrus, hops and sweet malts. Sweet malts and hops. A bit sweet and syrupy in the mouth for me, but the flavor is otherwise pleasant and the hops cut the sweetness a bit. A very flavorful IPA, but maybe not one I would want to drink on a hot day.

Bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey
Golden to light amber color, with medium sized compact head. The aroma is quite powerful, fresh and fruity, with hints of caramel and toffee too. It has a very good malt and toffee flavor, dynamic, not chewy at all, with a fresh hopping, providing delicate fruits (apricot and sweet oranges), mild resins (spruce), light spices (black pepper, very light coriander).
Another good hit from Elysian in the IPA domain, notable for its freshness.

Caramel pour with a robust beige tinted head. Huge mega-grapefruity aroma with some papaya. Fairly crisp grapefruit pith flavors. House character apparent; pretty easy drinking though a touch too caramel sweet and resiny relative to my very favorite IPAs.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2012
The pour is a hazy, orangey, amber color with a moderate, off-white, pillowy, frothy head which is somewhat lasting and leaves drippy, frothy lace. The nose is very nice with floral and leafy notes, light pine, faint toasted grains, and nice fruit notes of peach, tangerine, and faint grapefruit. The flavor is similar but spice note emerges to match the grapefruit, tangerine and light peach, some herbal, pine still, and a honey sweet backbone. The palate is nearly lively, medium, and creamy. The finish is spicy, drying only slightly, some herbal, and pine. The bitterness is deceptive hiding behind the sweet malt backbone and the intense fruit notes. A nice, unique approach to the limitless number of IPA’s, but I feel like this would make a great IIPA. Nice offering from Elysian.

Bottle. Cloudy golden color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of apricot, pineapple. Taste is bitter pine and pineapple. Nice stuff.

NikkTwist (1926) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Draft at Khyber Pass. Dark orange amber with a frothy white head. Lots of lace. Bitter orange citrus hops up front. Some juiciness lying beneath. Very hoppy. Honey tangerine zest. Grapefruit pith. Peppery orange. Bitter as sin. Sugar cane sweetness as well. Interesting mix. Full strong bitter with a touch of sweetness. If you are in the mood, then good to go.

davidd (7) - Alabama, USA - JUL 14, 2012 does not count
Hazy copper color, off white head that thinned out quickly. Plenty of hops, mostly pine-y with a little citrus. Little bit of caramel sweetness.

Maverick34 (2521) - New York, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draught from stag’s head. Poured an orangey red, floral piney hops on the aroma and a similar taste with some mild malts in the end. Pretty decent stuff overall.

brigg (536) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2012
(1pt 6oz bottle) Hazy orange body with a large off-white head. Aroma of straw, mild citrus, yeast, caramel malt; slight floral noteh. Medium, silky-smooth body, not much carbonation, but some softness. Grass, pine, and citrus hops; orange; straw, some wood; underlying sweetness gives it a nice fullness, but a dry finish.

RumRunner101 (868) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
Pours deep orange with thick white head and good retention. Aroma is tropical fruits - mandarin, pineapple, mango, splash of citrus. Medium bodied, surprisingly smooth with lots of fruitiness in the body. Finish is piney hops, and I’m picking up some earthiness. Good.
