COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This west coast style IPA is our tribute to Norse and their quests and adventures. ELLIDA was a legendary magic dragon ship also known as the first ship of the north. This Viking ale is brewed with loads of hops and balanced out with 5 varieties of malts. Local malt from Riverbend Malthouse is used to add to the flavor complexity.

Pours a slightly hazy golden brown on tap with thin white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is big on the piney west coast hops, earthy and floral. Taste follows, medium bitterness, just barely a hint of pale malt. Solid, but nothing special.

Draft. Pours amber with decent white creamy head. Aroma is pine/spruce, bread dough, lemon, tangerine. Taste is light/med body with some lingering hop bitterness. Malt variety adds a nice complexity. Overall, decent.

A decent IPA from a local brewery. Nothing really stood out to make this beer memorable.

On tap at Barely’s Taproom, Greenville, SC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Floral hop aroma with hints of bubblegum. Taste is of roses, spruce, pine needles, and wet grass. Moderate lingering bitterness. Decent.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2013
From tap at brewery. A semi clear yellow color with thin head. Aroma was light but had piney hops. Taste was thin with piney hops and light malt. Easy drinking but not an IPA in my book.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
From a 32oz Growler filled hours before. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Floral and earthy with a lighter citrus in the finish.

On Tap. Beautiful, citrus bouquet of sweet malt and hop insanity. Quest’s Brewmaster created the original Endo IPA from Cottonwood. He can make some badass hoppy beer. Smells like centennial hops up front and an almost caramel malt back end to the aroma. The appearance is of a clear light amber with a solid two finger head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. The bite is very smooth and just strong enough to battle off the sweet malt bill. The carbonation is spot on and the finish nice and dry.

Jamesthebrit (254) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2013
A: Nice aroma, light, more earthy and piney. A: Looks fine. Light yellow-golden T: Surprisingly light. Extremely sessionable. Hops are present then fade to a more earthy note. P: Great on the palate. Smooth, no harsh notes. Overall this was not what I was expecting but a very nice beer. Easy drinking but still true to the IPA style. very unique and great after a run.
