3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a hazed gold with a solid quilt of bone white foam. Smells like grapefruit, onion, body odor, some more onion, some resin and hemp, a little orange. The flavor is bitter, more onion, more body odor and musk, some lighter grain, some orange and grapefruit pith. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a little wetness on the finish. A little too aggressive with the citra hops, makes it go from fruity love to veggie sadness.

Bottle shared by wolf... Never heard of Apollo hops. Nose of musty hops. Looks good. Nice orange color, decent head, good lacing. Taste is fruity, light grapefruit, orange. Really easy to drink. Light body, good amount of carbonation, kind of dry, little bitterness in the aftertaste. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, from Mondial de la bière shop, Mulhouse ix/2013. Label mentions Chinook, Amarillo and Citra, not Apollo. A suave pine bitter core on chewy round malts serves as a tasty funnel to deliver citrus rind and mango/orange marmelade fruitiness to a well-coated palate. Presence of a DIPA without its full ABV wallop. Came without a BB date but tasted fresh enough.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 22oz bottle tulip. The pour is a hazy gold with a medium white head. The nose is huge, tons of hops, heavy citrus, grapefruit especially. Taste is medium bodied, mostly bitter with sweetness from the citrus also present. Finishes great, lingers on the pallet. Awesome IPA, I have yet to be disappointed by Elysian.
