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.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, - DEC 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark reddish amber with a sand coloured head. The aroma is way too malty with notes of caramel, honey, toffee, almond paste and cookies. Undertones of passion fruit, pineapple, apples, canned fruits grass, citrus, gun powder and Swedish snus. The flavour light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and tiny acidic with muddy/sticky malt and resinous/woodsy/citric hops. The mouthfeel is light sticky, light numbing and light astringent with a soft carbonation. Nettles, resin, grapfruit and robust malt on the finish. Medium bodied.

The aroma was tart and tangy with fruity hops and faint tobacco. The flavor was bitter and somewhat rough with lemon, grapefruit and tobacco. Medium length finish. Medium body.

piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 15, 2017
Bottle. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of grapefruit and orange pulp, lumber yard, and both pale and caramel malts. Strong grapefruit and tropical citrus flavor, along with a decent pale and caramel malt blend, and some darker herbal elements. Heavier bodied than expected with a chunky bitterness. Fairly old school in spite of the Nelson Sauvin, but still tasty.

slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2015
More crisp and clean than expected but the hops are still fairly pungent. Fruity Nelson and some earthy dankness. Enjoyed the bomber.

3.5
sulawang (1197) - - SEP 23, 2015
Visual: Pours almost clear toffee brown with a smallish head, a thin murky layer of retention, lots of fast steady streams. Nose: brown sugar toffee malt, lightly toasted, traces of woody apple juice. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp-slick-tingly Mid-palate: bright, (lvl-4)-sweetnesss, (MAIN) red apple, caramel maltd Finish: alcohol detection, dry stealth mild bitter lingering hopped finish. Summary: A rather fruity IPA as opposed to herbacious or piney; didn’t have a whole lot of passion fruit as advertised, but some citrus. Drinkable, but the finish is a bit flat.

3.4
matthewjk (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2015
A better than average IPA that hits many appreciable notes: grove citrus, mellon, with a dry edge. This is very drinkable, but a tad thin in body for my liking. Overall, a nice 22oz bottle from Elysian.
