COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savant IPA :: Savant Just Knows Its a Great Beer.

Without knowing quite why, Savant IPA knows a lot. It knows that its built on Northwest 2-row malt, with touches of Munich, Cara-red and C-120 Crystal. It knows that it weighs in at around 6.3% alcohol by volume, that its bittered with Northwest Chinook and finished with fruit-juicy New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. It knows that itll be back as the first Manic IPA from Elysian Brewing in the new year of 2014, available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. It knows that 22 ounces is the same as a touch over 650 milliliters (and 13012 drops for anyone whos counting), but what it mainly knows is that its a great beer.

New release, second time Ive had it. Thought it was good first time. Unknown bottle date. Pours a golden on amber ale with some soapy white foam that falls to pocks of the same. A little hazy. Smells of limes, celery, b.o., some resin. Nice smell from the hops. Taste is sweet with a little catty flavor and some sweetness on the back end that reminds me of papaya. This was a bit better previously than last time, but good nonetheless. Medium bodied with lighter carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer, would like to see on draft regularly. Serving type: bottle 03-05-2012

Pretty good IPA and neat label too. Deep orange pour. Slightly peaty aroma, but still a lot of fruit and pine. An especially sweet IPA lots of mango, orange, lemon, and other tropical goodness. There is a kick too more floral than bitter. Pretty bubbly mouthfeel.

Based upon the other good reviews of this brew, I think I had a bad pint, which is totally plausible, as it was at a questionable restaurant at the beach. Tasted stale and old, slight hop, but not much else.

Bomber. Sweet passion fruit and citrus aroma with some hops. Pours cloudy amber colored with a thick of white head with good lacing. Passion fruit and some citrus to start with dry, hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(22oz bottle) Pours a hazy golden orange body with a small white head. Aroma of grain, florals, dusty, and wet dried grass/weeds. Flavor of florals, earth, grass, and dank with a dry, bitter, and quite dirty finish.
