Sampled at the Flying Saucer in Houston. I sampled this right after the Dogfish Head IPA and both were equally fantastic beers. Although I enjoy IPAs, normally they are too hoppy for me to enjoy. This beer started hoppy but finished with a smooth mouthfeel. Worth the trip to Texas. andrewlol (63) - san antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Never been disappointed by st arnolds. This one was great in every way. Not too hoppy it was more on the citrus side. Loved it clevelandbruno (58) - Half Moon Bay, California, USA - JUL 8, 2011
This is a great brew. Hops are strong. Has a great taste. I think somewhat bitter but very smooth. supermikeyb (43) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2004

Pours Golden brown (a little on the dark side)Medium size head, aroma is very nice rich malts with hops that follows. Good balance and nice smooth finish. Could use a little more hops which would really make this Texas brew exceptional. Glad to fianlly have it in bottles.Hands down the best beer St. Arnolds make.:)

Oh yeah, this beer is really good. The important thing about Elissa is that you can drink more than one. It has some malt character to fill out the flavor. That is what some of the Cali IPAS are missing, full flavor. I would put this 3rd behind the Stone and Harpoon IPAs. I will be interesting to taste it out of the bottle after months of only having it on tap. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2004
As the zero people who have read all of my ratings knows, I despise IPAs. I think they are overdone and as other raters on this beer have noted, they are often nothing more hten a contest amongst the West Coast brewers to see who can "out-hop" the other. So, it pleases me to no end to say that I love this beer. It is restrained in all the right places and blossoms in all the others. Wonderful piney nose. Nice hop kick that is balanced PERFECTLY with the Maris Otter malt. Congrats to Brock on a real winner.
