On tap at Dig Bar. A light orange-gold with a malty fruity aroma. Medium to full bodied. The taste is a very clean malty caramel with citrusy hops and a dash of floral notes. Exceptionally well balanced, not so complex but it won’t disappoint.

"a nice big and well balanced fruity citrusy ipa. nice body too. very smooth. just enough of a malt backbone (slightly biscuity) to balance it quite nicely. another winner from Elysian!"

Draft pour. Pours a copper color with a lasting head to it. Bitter hops on the aroma. Some orange on the flavor, and decently hoppy throughout. I’ve had this beer a few dozen times and still really enjoy it. Solid beer.

Good beer, hoppy, not overpowering like some the stronger IPA's. Lacked a little bit of flavor to cut the bitterness of the Hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Elysian Capitol Hill. Clear golden pour with white foam. Decent citrus hop nose. Some grapefruit and a fair amount of orange marmalade. A touch grassy and mildly malty. Flavor has a decent bitterness to it, nothing overwhelming. Sweet caramel and lots of citrus peel. Some resinous pine notes. Mildly floral and grassy.

Transfer from BA review on 9-9-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a very lightly hazed golden color with a bit of orange tint. It was served with a one finger white head which faded over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was a blend of citrus hop, caramel sweetness and some more bready and biscuity notes. Mixed with these aromas was also a light earthy hop smell. Taste – The taste started out with a bready taste mixed with a very light caramel sweetness as well as a decent presence of some grapefruit hop from the start. As the taste advances further, the sweetness and the breadiness fades some and other hop flavors of a pine and light earthy nature come to the tongue. With the new presence of the earthy and pine flavors is an increase in the grapefruit hop flavor. While none of the hop individually grows very strong, tighter they create a nice hop blend. In the end, the hop combined with the now lighter bready base create a slightly bitter finish to the brew. Mouthfeel – The body is average in creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Overall – A nice, but nothing exceptional IPA. Worth a try, but not one I would frequent with any great occasion.
