12 oz bottle from my neighbor Bob - thanks! Certainly deserve to be in the higher ranks for IPAís but lacks anything outstanding to distinguish it from the rest of the pack. A very strong mouth feel and bitterness seems to prevail.

Like to see the aggressive side of IPAs--their true nature. Like the softer, tropical citrus aroma, then hit in the head with that initial hoppy burst. Not bad Elysian. Serving: 22oz bomber.

This IPA seemed to be a nice summertime beer. It didn't have a strong pallet. I would describe it as a nice entry level beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Drinks like a big west coast IPA. Over the top hops- flowers, citrus, grass and pretty resiny/bitter on the finish. Slick mouthfeel. Appealing pour - cloudy orange with a tight white head. Good, but I only want one. Bit in-your-face for me.

Nickls (2283) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Tap. White head; light copper orange hue. Muted pine, citrus and dough aromas. Citrusy hops in the flavor, slight hop burn, but kinda weak and muted still. Biscuity maltiness. Not too sweet, and kinda balanced oddly. Medium body.

Not a ton of hop flavoring, but a super smooth 6.3% IPAs. Nice and drinkable.

Turboninja (434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2016
Tap@Elysian, Seattle, USA. Light refreshing aroma with sweeter citrus and some floral notes. Golden color with medium forthy, natural white head. Medium taste with citrus, some spruce and resin. Bit unbalanced with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with organic citrus. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, bit simple but distinctive and refreshing.

beer-yum (1212) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 7, 2016
Alluring melon citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Interestingly different taste profile with the usual hop forward fruity body overshadowed by a refreshingly delicious fruit juice foreground. Taste is laid back and leaves one wanting another for sure. Right up there with the best US IPAs Iíve had - and Iíve had a few...

chriszfat (79) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2016
From a bomber. Pours light golden with lasting medium head. Smell is sweet malty citrus. Drinks light and easy with balanced finish. Not overly hoppy or bitter. Nice drinkable beer.

Block (2086) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2016
This is a good IPA and it caught up with me quickly for some reason. Piney and hoppy with a nice floral aroma. The flavor is mild and smooth with a sweet backbone and hoppy finish. Well balanced.

thegreenrooster (3860) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is plenty hoppy with lots of pine. Flavor is a mild hop with more of a dry bready malt making and appearance. Finish is dry and bitter. It says pale ale on the bottle and I agree with this beer style rather than IPA. With that said this is light but flavorful.
