Beer Review: ELEVATION 7437 DOUBLE IPA

Elevation Beer Co. presents their flagship, the Elevation 7437 Double IPA, a brew that embodies their commitment to pushing the boundaries of beer. With a lofty elevation of 7,437 feet, this hoptastic concoction is not just a celebration of the brewery’s anniversary but also a toast to the steadfast supporters who have been part of their journey.

Appearance

Pouring into a goblet, this 750 ml. bottle of liquid adventure reveals a copper hue with a crystal-clear body, crowned by a persistent white sudsy head.

Aroma

The olfactory experience unfolds with a piney introduction, followed by the zesty notes of grapefruit, and a delightful shift to sweeter fruits like mango and pineapple.

Taste

Prepare for a rollercoaster of flavors as the initial piney bitterness lingers long after each sip, accompanied by toasty pale malt. Surprisingly, the anticipated wheelbarrow of caramel malt is replaced by a subtle sweetness, concluding with a crescendo of hop-induced craziness.

Mouthfeel

A full-bodied texture with modest carbonation adds to the beer’s allure, creating a sensory experience that matches its bold flavor profile.

The Verdict: Altitude Achieved

In the competitive landscape of Colorado’s double IPAs, the Elevation 7437 Double IPA stands tall. This offering boasts a remarkable bitterness that sets it apart, earning its place as a front-runner. One can only hope that this gem becomes a perennial delight or, better yet, secures a spot in the regular rotation. Cheers to one year of Elevation Beer Co.’s brewing prowess!
