Elysian "The Mens Room Original Red"
Elysian Brewing Company - Seattle, Washington USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.6%) (IBU 33)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a cloudy reddish orange with an average (1-2 fingers) white creamy head that pretty much lasted throughout, reducing slightly and possessing excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was on the mild side with a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was lightly bitter with a nice caramel sweetness early on, it then become a tad bitterer with a moderate dose of grapefruit and a bold hoppy presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time after the swallow with a slight citrus peel hoppiness lingering for little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry and slightly watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty solid Pale Ale. Although it was nothing overly special, it did have a really good taste and a great drinkability. I definitely would drink again and knowing that part of the proceeds go to American Veterans and thier families dosent hurt either...
