Today I'm checking out Elissa IPA brewed by Saint Arnold Brewing in Houston, Texas. The beer is named after a Texas Tall Ship of the same name from 1877. I've tried this beer before though never really did a review. This was sent to me by the brewery.
Light pine aroma, pretty faint. Super-duper flowery flavors open things up. That's followed by a lemony, medicinal type thing. Grassy bitterness, light orange citrus. Toward the end, a nice sweet malty balance shows up. The finish shows a bit of alcohol and dryness. Not bad.
