Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2013
THOUGHTS: Nice IPA, but not as balance as Id prefer. Oddly the aroma was quite cloying and the flavor was a bit bitter nearing the harsh side. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a lightly hazy, medium orange with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel malt; heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; moderate resin hops; apricot; and marmalade. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and heavily to nearly harshly bitter with a long duration. There was oranges, apricot, caramel malt, orangey hops, citrus rind, pine hops, a little resinous hops and honey. The medium body was a bit oily with sort of soft carbonation and a dry and slightly astringent finish.

Savage_Night (153) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours clear orange with a white head. Head retention is ok. AROMA: citrus, pineapple, malty, floral/herbal hops, tropical fruit, passion fruit, tangerines, sweet pine and slightly boozy notes. TASTE: pineapple, citrus fruit, malty, hop bitterness, tropical fruit, light caramel, spice, spruce, herbs and hop bitterness. AFTER TASTE: hop oil, citrus, spruce and pineapple with an oily finish. Bought the bomber just for the label, my daughter loved it, but Iím really surprised at the great taste of this brew. Only thing that makes me upset is that ELYSIAN is now owned by AB InBev.

Draft pour at the brewery. Plastic cup in pure celebration of Mariners opening day. Pours a copper color with a bubbly head. Mild wet hoppy aroma. Flavor has a nice up front hop character. Bitter finish, but not overly intense. Overall a really standard, non unique ipa. Not bad though.

slowrunner77 (7284) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Really nice hop profile here. Either due to age (no bottle date so canít tell) or to an abundance of biscuit malt as well, this is a good ipa that could have been great. Aboubding in aroma and flavor of citrus and spicy hops, and like I said, a ton of biscuit malt. That would usually be enough to dislike a beer, but this had enough going for it, and was so stinking smooth, that it still ends up pretty nice. Iíd get again. I imagine this is awesome fresh from the tap."

Cloudy off orange with nice frothy head. Big hoppy nose. Flavor is the same with a dry moisture sucking quality. Finishing with a bit of hoppy pepperness.

dslam (95) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
Poured from a 1 litre bottle. Good amount of white frothy head. Clear golden brown with very little carbonation that is visible. Having the beer with some salmon kama, and itís bitterness works really well as a pallette cleanser. This is a very well balanced ipa. I usually donít like the oneís that are bitter, just for the sake of being bitter. Leaves a light coating in your mouth, and I find that quite enjoyable

Braudog (6026) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. A light, hazy orange-amber hue with just a thin topping of stick, white foam. The aroma is enticingly herbal and citric. The beer drinks with a bit of thin consistency, but the flavors are decent -- pine, pepper, and a bit of light wood. (#5391, 12/21/2013)
