Deep copper orange color with a frothy white head. Bright crisp and fruity flavor that is evident in nose. Bitter finish that lingered. Itís a wonder why this beer is not more renowned globally.

Pours a deep gold with orange highlights and a medium-sized white head that laces the glass. The aroma is big with grapefruit, soft fruit, and sweet malts. The flavor is a great balance between citrusy and piney hops and lots of crystal malt and sugar. The finish is somewhat dry with an aftertaste of citrus and malts. The mouthfeel is a tad over-carbonated. Otherwise, it is creamy and medium in body. Overall, a very decent IPA. Their menu (at the Tangletown pub) indicated that their beers (Elysian) had defeated Dogfish Headís in their informal in-pub tasting competition (90 Minute IPA must have been the competitor). This week they were pitting this brew against Victoryís Hop Devil. I personally donít think this brew is quite as good as either of those, but it is pretty tasty.

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Draught sample at brewery. Great fresh grassy hops with apricots and resin. Mild bitter fruity malts. Fresh! Dull golden amber clear with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Big fresh hops flavor. Grassy with grapefruit and big bitter finish. Sweet sugary malt and light grain. Big bitter finish with medium chalky bitter after. Nice big IPA but not overly harsh.

vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2007
mellow orange flavor, good aftertaste, not very hoppy, little to no head and dull brown appearance, aroma is a great piney smell. Worth the price.

PSmith (35) - Kennewick, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2007
A nice golden orange color with a good looking white head. Aroma is a woody spice smell. A slight malt flavor with a bit of hops. Not a bad beer but not great.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Amber pour, mid-sized off-white head, decent lacing. Retention for such a dimunitive head is excellent. The aroma is of mellow pine, new wood, lightly toasted grains and tangerine rind. Flavor is moderately bitter, lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic. The malt holds itís own, just barely. Finishes resiny, bitter and drying. The mouthfeel is adequately carbonated, dusty and medium bodied. Average.

theisti (3734) - Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Draft, at the Seattle Brew Pub. Pour is orange gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is hop and a little bit of chemical funkiness. Taste is the bright floral hops, but strong chemical egg and popcorn was there too - probably diacytel. This was not terribly enjoyable.

Arayaga2 (2057) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2008 Clear golden with lingering white head. Aroma is sweet and floral, albeit too subtle. Sour lemon pithy bitterness in taste with vigorous carbonation, and resinous hop-oil aftertaste. Englishy yeast character with unpleasant fermentation byproducts $5/22oz

This beer wasnít too bad. Pours out orange with a decent white head. Smell is a bit hoppy no citrus that Iím used to in these west coast IPAís. Taste is clean and smooth with a nice punch of hops but not over the top at all. I will say that the slight buttery taste from the diacytel took away from it a bit. Still a good beer.
