OVERALL RATING:



Sight: Clear golden color with a fluffy, creamy, two-finger head.

Smell: Clean fruits and florals.

Flavor: Definitely hops, that come through as a mild floral and pine taste.

Feel: Crisp, with low-to-moderate carbonation.

Concluding Remark:  Seattle’s Elysian Brewing Company uses Chinook, Amarillo, and Centennial hops to make its Immortal IPA.  James says it “tastes like grunge and flannel,” which can be interpreted as an enjoyable Seattle brew that stays true to hoppy West Coast IPA standards.  The carbonation was less than one might expect, but that flavor makes for a good drink.
