Unbelievable IPA. huge huge citrus hop aroma contered with a peppery spicy initial flavor. Smooth almost silky malt and light malt texture. Perfect mouth and perfect finish

a very dangerously sessionable beer with equally dangerous side effects the flavour is actually that of some super humans ipa its smoothness but direct hoppy bite is like no other beeer i have ever had

Oh yeah - superb West Coast IPA - herbal hop dominant - sweet malt balances - so smooth but lovely edge of bitterness - easy drinker - could drink plenty of this - impressive. No way is this English style - thankfully.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, this is just great beer! Poured at a good temperature with a foamy, nice sized, thick, cream-colored head that slowly settled and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, grapefruit, a little resin. Flavor’s like nose, but really, really nice - fairly dry up front, a little carbonation works well with the bitter and the hint of sweet follows up for good balance. Body is excellent, full, chewy and in perfect coordination with flavor. Finish is like flavor, of average length, a hint boozy, and eminently drinkable. Got to get back out to Seattle. Well done guys!

Extra special thanks to Indiana Red for this tasty morsel. This is, without a doubt, the best IPA I have ever had. The perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness makes this one a must drink. Highly recommended!

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle. Pours amber color with a head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Pine and a hint of citrus. Flavor: Very hoppy, but not over-powering, with a hint of orange peel.

Gorgeous copper color, nice malty flavors meld perfectly with the hops, bitter with citrusy overtones, very well done IPA, easy to drink and extremely enjoyable!

22 oz bottle. Nice tangerine color with a sticky thick head. Aroma of citrus, pine and hops. The taste is malty sweetness nicely balanced out by the resinous hop juice. Had this with pizza at one of the best pizza places in New York and was blown away. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and the finish is silky smooth.

Wow. Great hop-from-the-vine aroma. A lot of beers with great aroma from elysian. After the other beers so far I expected a hoppier IPA. A nice hop finish, but in reality on par for a SoCal IPA. The avatar is more interesting. A nice bitter finish though.
