22 oz Bottle: Clear copper with off-white, foamy, smaller head. It has aromas of strong tangerine and other floral essences. The taste is quite interesting. At first, you notice the strong bitterness similar to grapefruit rind which then moves to an earthy flavor of some sort and then later you start picking up sweet flavors like cheap, hard candy and mild perfume. These flavors remain through to the aftertaste. The carbonation seemed higher than average and the feel is full and creamy. Yummmmmm.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 22 oz bottle. Average size dense head that dissipates quickly. Somewhat hazy blonde/amber color. Sweet/flowery aroma. Nice caramel malty hoppy taste. No bitter overly hopped aftertaste like I have experienced in some IPAs recently. I know some people like that, but I prefer a balance where at least taste some malt and SOME of the malt lingers in the aftertaste. Bitterweet instead of just bitter, and this one is a perfect balance i think, Nice. Very nice. The other IPAs went fully (after 3 drinks) or partially (after half the beer) down the drain tonight. Not this bomber. I am gonna finish this one :=)

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to glowing amber/copper body with lots of visible carbonation and a huge fluffy and rocky merengue light yellow head. Awesome lacing. The aroma is leafy hops, lemon juice, citrus. The flavor is like lemon juice mixed with sweet caramel malts. The palate is almost sourish from all the lemons.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Particulate-laden yet clear orange body with a ton of carbonation. All that carbonation produces a big stiff rocky white head. Dry caramelly aroma with a lemon head and dried spice hopping. Interesting flavor - acidic lemon juice, unripe strawberry and dandelion all over dry toasty caramel malt. Neat refreshing acidity but the malts are lacking.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Really thick yellowish off-white head. Hazy golden copper body. Aroma is muted... maybe from the foam. Light hops. Has an interesting fresh citrus character... not overdone or typical. Flavor is a bit of the same... nice citrusy and slightly sour hops with a little malt to give it sweetness. Not sure what the hops are, but they are different than the norm. Good all around flavor. A bit different with its slightly atypical hops and slight sourness.

jake65 (3244) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Nice hazy golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is clean and hoppy, just as an IPA should be. Taste is a smooth hoppiness, with floral and citrus tones. Malt is also present, but not overly sweet. Nice brew.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2006
On cask in Seattle’s Brouer’s Cafe. A loose soapy foamly white head sitting atop a slightly hazy brownish orange brew. A forward floral hop aroma with strong peach and some slightly sweet mango. Incredibly easy drinking, as it was on cask. Decent viscosity and tiny tiny tiny bubbles gave this brew enough body to be decent without the added CO2. Really fruity flavors. Apricot, peach flower hops. Light malt, adding a slight sweetness. Absolutely no alcohol detectable. This beer could’ve been a hop bomb if it turned the malt and hops up a bit, but it opted instead to be a nice session beer.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Orange-brown in color, a bit cloudy, and a fluffy white head. The aroma has a lot of hops and malt, and is lightly fruity. The flavour is hoppy, bitter, creamy, some caramel.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
Hazy orange with ruby reflects. The head is white and quickly recedes to cover. Just like their bitter, this Elysian shows nutty, soapy, earthy maltiness that serves as a base for the mostly aromatic hops display. Quite citric, piney and grapefruity, tangerine-like from the beginning to the finish. Smooth bitterness paired with more acidity than most. Rather thick maltiness despite its low flavours, moderately carbonated and slightly alcoholic. Good.

Lubiere (12403) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
Golden IPA with a thin white head. Rather funky hops, with piney and orange notes. Nice refreshing floral hops in mouth, coniferous and menthol. Rich bodied and smooth. Very well made IPA. Mondial 2006.
