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.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2013
(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.

piscator34 (2493) - 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.

More crisp and clean than expected but the hops are still fairly pungent. Fruity Nelson and some earthy dankness. Enjoyed the bomber.

sulawang (1148) - - 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; didnt have a whole lot of passion fruit as advertised, but some citrus. Drinkable, but the finish is a bit flat.

matthewjk (1093) - 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.

Rating 1128 - 10.06.2014 - On tap at Beer Revolution. Lots of punchbowl hops) erupting from this foaming amber pour. Sharp hoppy overtones of citrusy, tropical sweetness pronounced into a firm bitterness, a balanced, crisp finish. Quite Nice.

AAEA (266) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
22FL OZ ($4.99 Bottle) this was a very very good IPA. I have only had a few IPAs i can say are better. This is the most well rounded Ive had in recent history. Find it, drink it, love it, you wont regret it.
