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.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 2010: Hazy straw-amber with a thin head. Bubbly. Rich herbal, citrusy brew. Moderate bitterness. Smells like sticking your head in a bag of hops. Nice, easy-drinking hop juice with just enough malt balance. BUT, as it warms a little bit of butter comes out, ruining the whole thing.

2007: Hazy amber with low head. Very woody nose - the centennial signature. Toasty, lightly chocolatey malts and lots of bitterness. Woody, lightly citric hop character. Assertive but balanced IPA that harkens to the mid 90s and does it really well. 8-3-8-4-16 = 3.9

argo0 (11555) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2012
22oz bottle. Murky amber body topped by large off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, flower/orange, light bread. Taste is grapefruit, some pine. Starts bitter with minimal sweetness, but sweet caramel hits toward the swallow and accompanies the bitterness at the end. Highly unusual (unprecedented?) experience for me to get the sweetness at the back of the mouth when I expect the real bitterness to hit. Medium resinous body, low carbonation, some acidity.

Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours hazy light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is pine and near sugar bomb. With quite a bit of floral and citrus. Med plus body. Flavor is resin, citrus and floral. Hints of brown sugar. Damn but it’s hoppy. Damn but it’s bitter. Finishes towards barleywine, but the hops is enough to cut that. Finishes extremely tasty.
