UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 Re-rated from bottle Nov. 2007. Very nice pour with long-lasting, lace-leaving head. Straightforward and relatively balanced. Not a hop-assault and not a very complex IPA. Some white pepper notes. Had also sampled at a Great Canadian Beer festival. Did not take detailed notes and only indicated that it was an excellent IPA but for more reliable tasting notes will have to try it again, in a longer draught from the bottle or tap. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Draft at Elysian Fields in Seattle. Pours golden with a retentive white head. Aroma of skunk (yes, my wife confirmed), faint citrus, and pale malts. Flavor of pale malts and grapefruit with a dry and grassy bitter finish.
The beer is decent, but nothing really grabbed my attention. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Deep copper orange color with a frothy white head. Bright crisp and fruity flavor that is evident in nose. Bitter finish that lingered. It’s a wonder why this beer is not more renowned globally. jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Pours a deep gold with orange highlights and a medium-sized white head that laces the glass. The aroma is big with grapefruit, soft fruit, and sweet malts. The flavor is a great balance between citrusy and piney hops and lots of crystal malt and sugar. The finish is somewhat dry with an aftertaste of citrus and malts. The mouthfeel is a tad over-carbonated. Otherwise, it is creamy and medium in body. Overall, a very decent IPA. Their menu (at the Tangletown pub) indicated that their beers (Elysian) had defeated Dogfish Head’s in their informal in-pub tasting competition (90 Minute IPA must have been the competitor). This week they were pitting this brew against Victory’s Hop Devil. I personally don’t think this brew is quite as good as either of those, but it is pretty tasty.

Draught sample at brewery. Great fresh grassy hops with apricots and resin. Mild bitter fruity malts. Fresh! Dull golden amber clear with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Big fresh hops flavor. Grassy with grapefruit and big bitter finish. Sweet sugary malt and light grain. Big bitter finish with medium chalky bitter after. Nice big IPA but not overly harsh. vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2007
mellow orange flavor, good aftertaste, not very hoppy, little to no head and dull brown appearance, aroma is a great piney smell. Worth the price. PSmith (35) - Kennewick, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2007
A nice golden orange color with a good looking white head. Aroma is a woody spice smell. A slight malt flavor with a bit of hops. Not a bad beer but not great. boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Amber pour, mid-sized off-white head, decent lacing. Retention for such a dimunitive head is excellent. The aroma is of mellow pine, new wood, lightly toasted grains and tangerine rind. Flavor is moderately bitter, lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic. The malt holds it’s own, just barely. Finishes resiny, bitter and drying. The mouthfeel is adequately carbonated, dusty and medium bodied. Average. theisti (4237) - Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Draft, at the Seattle Brew Pub. Pour is orange gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is hop and a little bit of chemical funkiness. Taste is the bright floral hops, but strong chemical egg and popcorn was there too - probably diacytel. This was not terribly enjoyable.
