(22 oz bottle - poured into a balloon)

A: very hazy (well, cloudy) yellow-orange liquid... sort of a creamy foam, off-white... wild, bottle-conditioned look to the bubbles... decent retention... haze seems to clear only a bit after a while... 3.5

S: oh, wow!... floral, taffy-like aromas plus the backend whiff of fresh jasmine - fantastic!... semi-potent intensity... 4.5

T: jasmine carries over like mad, trails off in favor of a cake-like malt flavor, which then fades just as quickly as the jasmine comes whipping back around, lingering for a moment before fading yet again... by the second sip, classic west coast orange-citrus hops push forward, with a lingering lemon pith note... not the least bit boozy, nor peppery despite a sense that it could be... malt sweetness, boosted by the hops, increases with each sip and settles with the hop resins upon the palate... the taste just lasts and lasts, aftertaste retains most of the hop/malt nuances... pleasant, bright grassy-herbal bitterness emerges after a bit - character of eating flower petals... if the jasmine was completely removed from this, I feel this would be a decent but perhaps not terribly exciting beer... the hazy balance is a dream... 4.75

M: big, fullish, but plush... satiny smooth... built for sipping... fades out level, but leaves a pillowy coating of "flower dust" and (I would assume) yeast and hop drippings blanketing the palate... so cozy... 5

O: transcended my expectations!... for someone who's enamored with gruit and "alternative" plant flavoring in beer, this was heavenly... had an eye out for this for a long while, finally came across it, and well worth the wait... guess what? going out and buying the rest of those bottles right now!... 4.5+

One finger white head, copper colored body.

Orange juice, grapefruit, tropical notes in the aroma.

Decent amount of bitterness, bit of juicy and citrusy notes on the back of the tongue. Grapefruit, tropical flavor, orange peel. Very slight jasmine notes. Dry and bitter aftertaste.

Medium body, decent carbonation. Goes down smooth.

Appearance - Pours a hazy copper/amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Excellent lacing left on the glass.

Smell - jasmine flowers, citrus hops, caramalts, citrus.

Taste - Jasmine flowers are the predominate taste followed by citrus hops, caramalts, and citrus.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant punch from the jasmine flowers and bitterness from the citrus hops.

Overall - A nice twist to the American IPA style by adding jasmine flowers. It adds a pleasant flavour profile to this brew while keeping true to the style. Props to Elysian for adding this unique ingredient.
