Elysian Space Dust IPA
This beer has a bold flavor, with a combination of citrus and hops. Overall good, but nothing complex.

Elysian Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale
Bomber pours a hazy amber-brown color with a huge creamy tan head, it fades quickly leaving tons of lace on glass. Aromas of cinnamon,nutmeg, coffee, cola, and pie crust. Tastes of pumpkin pie spices, cola, mocha cappuccino, cream and caramel. Medium body, thick and creamy almost chewy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation and a silky smooth finish. Wow this beer is astonishing! The spice melds perfectly with the malts. The coffee tastes fresh. Not one flavor is overwhelming. Just a nice well balanced flavorful fall beer. The best pumpkin beer I have had so far!

Elysian Dayglow IPA
Rated on 11-15-2017. Bottle. The appearance is a medium sized creamy head that is mostly lasting, slightly hazy deep gold body, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, some pine hops, tropical fruit, lightly spicy, grapefruit, sweet, and caramel malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, some pine hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, caramel malt, sweet, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and clean. This beer is medium bodied. This is an easy drinking and refreshing IPA. It is very tasty and has a sharp finish. It is worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.

Elysian Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale
Draft at The Black Squirrel. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice blend of pumpkin and brewed coffee on the nose and tongue. Finished with a slight hint of bitterness. I fuckinh hate drinking beers owned by InBev but this is pretty tasty.

Elysian Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale
Tap. Deep mahogany, with ruby highlights. Creamy light tan head. Coffee and strong cinnamon and ginger notes in the aroma. Flavor is similar, leans more cinnamon and allapice. Some coffee. Lighter to medium soft body. Far and away my favorite pumpkin spice beer.

Elysian Bifröst Winter Ale
Nearly clear copper pour with a two finger, creamy white head. Aroma is pale malt toastiness, a little oily grain and a hint of pine and caramel. Flavor is woody malt, caramel, earthy, pine and herbal hops. Medium body, chewy feel, light to medium carbonation, off dry finish. OK overall, a little much on the grain oil taste.

Elysian Hawaiian Sunburn
Bottle thanks to one of the cousins from the barrio - nose is metallic sulfur lemon zest. Sip adds light jalapeño, some tropical fruit and light salt. Agree with prufrocker (sp?) in that expectations matter. Hawaiian sunburn calls to mind pain from heat. The heat in this is mild at best. Expectations aside, this is not that bad: lingering, albeit light, heat, juiciness and salt come together to recreate a specific experience. Maybe the sunburn is on a person who doesn’t get bad sunburns due to genetics but I digress. After inspection the label, the person on the right has what must be a severe case of we call in KY a farmer’s tan. This one looks like it would hurt.

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
Pours a slightly hazy deep brown on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big spice notes with touches of bread and sweetness. Taste follows, low on ginger and nutmeg, high on cinnamon, nice by me, a touch of vanilla. Decent for pumpkin beer.

Elysian Crust Punk Pumpkin Kvass
Orange-amber colored body. Sour crusty bread nose with a staleness to it. The body strikes a similar composure with stale crusty bread, and sourdough notes, perhaps with a flare of sweet, fruity pumpkin flesh.

Elysian Fourth Son Dark Pumpkin Lager
Luminous red-amber, topped by an off-white head. The nose is at once fruity and smoky, with loads of hops--quite vibrant. The body is an interesting mixture of caramel malt, smoked malt, graininess, and fruity hops.

Elysian The Fix
Bomber from 2016. I sat on this from a year ago for no good reason. The weather was lime winter today so it felt appropriate. Aroma is a little diminished. Old coffee and chocolate. The way that your leftover coffee pot smells in the evening. Flavor is heavy chocolate with a finish of coffee. Somewhat flat.

Elysian Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale
Great pumpkin pie spice and coffee aroma. Very dark brown with a tan head. Coffee is way more prevalent in the taste with real pumpkin and some roast. Tastes way stronger than its 5% ABV would suggest. Palate is kinda weak. Overall I liked this way more than I thought I would. Elysian has found a niche with their pumpkin beers.

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
Bottle. Pours a hazy, brown color, with a small, very persistent, beige head. Allspice, dark cherries, toasted pecans, pumpkin, and light pine. Not very sweet, but nicely bitter. Medium to heavy body, with a hard, crisp feel, and clean finish. This is a really nice, subdued pumpkin beer. Solid.

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
Medium dark amber color. Nice pumpkin pie going on in the nose with lots of bready character under a spice rack of cinnamon and cloves. Full body, malty but not overly sweet. Spices shine, maybe too much for some people, but I drank this on Halloween and it seemed like the perfect beer for the occasion
