Wonderful fresh hop aroma. Floral and citrus together. An excellent beer. Good hops but not real overpowering, If anything, this could have just a tad more strength.

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!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of chocolate-y malts and pine-y hops. My eleven year old brother says he smells a hint of tea tree. Tastes sweeter than I thought it would be, but a has very nice and long bitter finish. A very nice IPA, one I would recommend to people who aren’t always fans of them.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy orangy copper with 2-finger off-white head that laces well. Nose is bright tropical fruity hops, caramel malts, slicy black pepper. Tastes tropical fruity, resiny, piney, with black pepper, caramel malt, and a dry bitter and hugely IBU-laden finish. The hop varieties in this complement each other. Well made.

Bottle @ home. I’ve had such good experiences with Elysian, I’m surprised I haven’t rated more by them. Lets go! Very hazy, reddish orange appearance with a fluffy, tan head that has great lacing. Huge mango, passion fruit, tropical fruity, spicy yeasty, orange citrusy, creamy, awesome aroma. Somewhat floral, orange citrusy, grapefruity, mango, pineapple, big tropical fruity flavor. Just my kind of ipa and fresh! Really delicious stuff! Fuck yeah!

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was rich pine, fruity hops, floral hops, perfume, pepper and a light yeasty element. The flavor was sweet and very tangy with strong notes of pine, pineapple, pepper, lemon, herbal hops and caramel. Long finish of pine, pineapple and herbal hops. Full bodied. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught sample at brewery. Fresh and grassy with light herbal-fruity nose. Oh so aromatic with hoppy goodness. Light orange-caramel sweetness. Dull golden orange-amber with creamy lacing off-white head. Heavy watery body with soft carbonation. Big hops throughout. Fruity sweet and grapefruit and fresh grassy hops. Big bitter finish and bitter grain after. Huge IPA but good malt-bitter balance.
