12oz bottle. Pour was a light golden yellow with a thin, almost non-existing head. Aroma is floral, light citrus and caramel. Mouth is beautifully sweet in flavor with notes of citrus and caramel. A nice bitterness that really comes out in the finish. Enjoyable.

Rating #763 -Nov 12, 2013 - 1 oz sample courtesy of bartender @ Beer Revolution in #yeg. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, not citrusy, but earthy, floral. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely a british style PA, not cascadey in the slightest. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Pours amber with a white head.
Nose shows spicy, herbal and earthy hops along with some sweet, bready malt.
Quite malty flavours, more bready notes along with some caramel before the spicy earthy hops roll through followed by an assertive bitterness.
Nice moderately thick body.

2.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly clear golden. Crazy skunk hop aroma. Sips thin and wat watery with dry bitter hop flavor. Shockingly not a hop punch in the face considering the other Elysian brews I’ve had. Lacks body

IBU 42. Tasted in a frosted pint glass at Hard Rock Seattle. Quite clear and golden in color. No head. Little aroma. Flavor was "okay." Not very hoppy. It's a serviceable ipa but nothing special to make it stand out.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours an amber color with a loose off white head. The nose is milder in the hop department than I was expecting. Light citrus notes with a little caramel. The flavor is malt forward. Lots of chewy, bready malts with mild citrusy hops to balance things. Overall it falls towards the hop side, but only barely. Decent.
