courtesy of Laurent Mousson; canned - fully cloudy copper-orange beer with a long lasting foam; solid hoppy aroma, resiney, rapes and litchies; full-bodied, pretty subtle carbonation, lively and tasty; hugely bitter, some apparent alcohol in a long hoppy aftertaste with more resiney notes and ripe fruits (litchies and melon)

adnielsen (9464) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Tap @ brewery. A touch hazy, orange appearance with a white head. Aroma is completely full of resiny, piney hops and a rich pale maltiness with a light ganja smell. Somewhat resiny, highly piney, moderately citrusy, very thick hoppy flavor with some slightly toasted malts. It’s a hop bomb but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sample at the taproom. Hazy dark orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Full, chewy body with flavors of fruity hops, grainy malt and pine. The finish is hoppy up front with a lingering grainy malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

deyholla (6989) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2013
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a clear gold with a touch of orange and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of wet grass with some earthy grains but not overly hoppy. Flavor has a good amount of grass with a bit of resin and an earthy grain backing. Seemed to lack a bit of punch for a "triple IPA".

arminjewell (6419) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, pour was hazy orange with white head. Aroma has notes of big pine and citrus notes, touch of caramel and biscuit with some nice fruity notes, a touch of retronasal burn but really not bad for 11%. Taste is a big fruity and grassy hop front, touch of biscuit, caramel notes with a big bitter finish, slightly from alcohol and more from the hops.

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2013
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a very strong note of butter, other note of sulfur / struck match, light note of pineapple. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy/velvety texture, soft carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Dear Renegade, you have a diacetyl problem. A very severe one. I have tried both Ryeteous and now Elevation from cans, and both are loaded with butter odor. While I could smell other things in Ryeteous, Elevation smells like almost NOTHING but butter. If you cannot smell diacetyl in either of these beers, you really, really, really need to hire someone on your team that can. Dear RateBeer users, if you need a beer to use as a VERY clear test for diacetyl flaw, buy a can of this.
