3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a very cloudy yellow with a finger’s worth of head. Aroma has a good bit of pine with just a bit of sweetness. Taste is an unbalanced amount of citrus hops, with some sweet malts that are mostly overpowered. Finish is mostly bitter and not much else.

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.

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.
