COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savant IPA :: Savant Just Knows It’s a Great Beer.

Without knowing quite why, Savant IPA knows a lot. It knows that it’s 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 it’s bittered with Northwest Chinook and finished with fruit-juicy New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. It knows that it’ll 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 who’s counting), but what it mainly knows is that it’s a great beer.

This beer is absolutely fantastic! I’m bummed it will only be available for a limited time. The big hoppy passionfruit aroma and flavor is well balanced with a substantial malt profile. Hoppy AND balanced is the way forward if you ask me. Elysian did a killer job with this one hop Nelson Sauvin wonder

22 oz bottle. Aroma: citrusy and malty, with hints of pineapple, bread, and barnyard. Taste/Palate: creamy; starts sweet, and finishes with a long bitterness.

For my preferences, this is a nearly perfect beer, with Pliny the Elder being the standard-bearer. As such this reminds me greatly of the Elder, though with a slight advantage of tasting less alcohol. At Parkway Tavern’s IPA Fest, 28Sep2010.

Smells like apple juice, and has a solid amber color. The flavor is very juicy, and highly acidic, like malic acid found in Green Apples (used to make sour candies), but with sort of a sweet cover. It ends up smelling and tasting a lot like candied apples. It also has a flowery smell and taste underneath, coming off like like the leaves of an apple tree. As you can probably tell, this is a very interesting, and very complex beer. Overall it is, very fresh, and easy to drink.

Definite passion fruit aroma, then full hoppy bitterness in the middle. Excellent, everything I hope for in an IPA.

Powerful fruit and citrus aroma, reminding me of candied apples. The nose immediately draws you in to the beer. It is a slightly hazy orange amber. The malt is complex but overall sweet. Caramel, toffee and earthy notes give way to piney hop flavors, finish astringent and dry. Bitterness is lasting but not overwhelming. West coast IPA brewers should definitely learn from the malt complexity. Hell, Elysian should learn how to translate this to their other brews! This beer is fantastic.

Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, guava, passionfruit and mango. Taste is a nice caramel malt base, tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit and a nice semi dry wine like finish. Absolute pleasure to drink!
