Yet another winner from Full Sails. Beautiful orange color with plenty of head. Nose is a bit stuffy but I get some citrus on the aroma. The body is wonderfully bitter with just the right amount of malt.
Bomber. This is a good IPA bit not a great one. The hop bittering is uneven and i would like more malt back bone. shigadeyo (3765) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

8/13/2011: Full Sail Elevation IPA... Aroma: Tangerine, grapefruit, and some pine. Appearance: Amber color that looks kind of dull; small, frothy crown. Flavor: Toffee maltiness and a medium bitterness; "beer-y" finish with some grapefruit and resin hoppiness; lots of various citrus peels and a bit herbal as well; more malty than bitter. Palate: Average. Overall: Decent; easily drinkable.
Draught at Pike Pub & Brewery in Seattle, WA. Rating #141 for this beer.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sending the bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with white head. Citrus, hoppy, caramel aroma. Nice strong citrus hop flavor with a well balanced malt flavor. Nice pac nw imperial IPA. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Nicely balanced for an Imperial IPA. Some great nectarine-ish flavor. Strong but pleasant bitterness. A little caramel and grainy malt flavor; it’s mostly subdued, though.

Bottle (22 oz.) Pours a darker orange/caramel color, thin tan head. Smells of sweet citrus, piney. Taste is smooth with citrus, woody, almost sappy flavor. Very hoppy finish with a lingering flavor. Overall very good IIPA, will definitely go out of my way to try this again. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Hazy golden amber with a thin tan head. Odd aroma of grains, grapefruit, caramel and malt. Taste of caramel, citrus and floral hops, alcohol and sweet malt. Finishes up bitter with mild warming and vinous notes.
