It tastes better with the special moon landing labels.

I know somebody who works for Elysian now so of course it’s good.
An IPA which is pretty much your standard northwest hop-fest. Opening is pleasant and seems well balanced with pine and fruit, but lots of alpha on the finish turns me off a bit.
Smells like a crisp evergreen mountain. Good dimensional bitterness from start to finish but ending lingers like resin. Mild pleasant cereal sweetness.
A gloriously strong IPA with a hint of sweetness at the finish. Love hops? You'll love this!
A bit less carbonated than the draft version and the dry hops "sparkle" a bit less but still kept all its other qualities.

Citrusy aroma, perfect hops and citrus balance with a sweet (almost Belgian ale) finish.
