Pours a hazy golden in color with ample white head. Strong juicy citrus aroma with hints of orange and pineapple. Tropical fruit flavors come through with a nice balanced malt character. Excellent IPA.

"Seemed mellow in comparison to the double we had before, but this is actually a fairly aggressive (but still well balanced) iPa. Solid citrus nose, orange peel and grapefruit with a little pine sap in the finish. Easy drinking but full of flavor and a good nose."

A dark golden amber, good lacing around the glass. Grass, a light fruity resin and pine in the aroma, huge fresh hops. Huge. The light caramel malt sweetness, sticky and median. The carbonation is about average. Great beer.

Clear golden color, moderate white head. Light grapefruit, pine, grass, and caramel malt. A little sweetness up front and then solid resinous bitterness. Smooth, light to medium bodied, and a bit oily. Quite bitter in the finish

Draft at pony bar HK. Pours an amber body with one finger white head. Aroma is pine and citrus hop with some light malty character. Mouthfeel is ok but you get more of an ashy, grainy flavor that takes away from the rest of the flavors.

Smells of an apple tree in the middle of a meddow in a light summer breeze (I’m speaking from experence here). It’s a sort of citrus, floral, grassy smell, creating, a really nice, easy ipa. The pleasent medium bitterness, medium sweetness, blend perfectly making for a lively, highly enjoyable IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed August 15, 2013.
The appearance has a slightly hazy orange body with a one finger white foamy head that drastically dies to barely a film coating the top of the body. There is some light carbonation that is seen rising at a moderate pace, with some messy lacing just kinda goes all over the glass in no apparent way.
The smell is citrusy and piney hops up front and very strong powering their way through the entire brew, but there is a light sweet malty presence in the background.
The taste is bittersweet all the way through the citrusy and piney hops, again with a sweet malty presence in the background, yet there is also a favorable spiciness that comes through in the taste that I really like, very sweet sticky aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, surprisingly enough despite the ABV - this one shows a very favorable drinkability - big wow. Carbonation seems lighter than most AIPA’s but pulls off pretty good for the style and for me.
Overall, I really wasn’t expecting this one to be this good, holy crap, this is a very good AIPA. Well done Elysian. If there is anything here on the West Coast that I can get for this price of $4.99 a bomber, its this.

Was left alone with a keg of this for about 2 weeks... Good times... Poured a hazy, quite bright orange with a dense white head. Big aroma of juicy hops, grapefruit and some caramel. Flavours of candy sugar sweetness mixed with Seville orange bitterness and some chewy malt. Wonderful, full palate a great mix of pine hop bitterness mixed with tropical fruit sweetness and a warm sugary alcoholic note.
