2.63/5  rDev -29.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Best part of the beer. Nice amber pour. Tiny bubbles linger.

Smell: Might be an old bottle but I get a musty, pale ale aroma. Biscuity and wet. There is a hoppiness about it, but not in an IPA sense. Apparently, there's supposed to be jasmine in here?

Taste: Much like the smell...Pale ale-ish. Little to no jasmine is detectable. Possibly in a slight bitterness after the hops hit. The hops are bitter, but muted in flavour. Oddly, I'm also tasting a bit of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Not bad. Standard for an IPA. Slight prickliness but smooth overall.

Drinkability: Well it's easy enough to drink, but would you want to? When I'm looking for an "American IPA" I look for a dynamic, adventurous beer. This is pedestrian.

Overall: I'd say this is just a touch too subtle in the hops/jasmine department to actually be called a "Jasmine IPA". More of a Jasmine APA, perhaps? I have a feeling this bottle is past its prime as the "drink before" date is only a month away. Probably already pushing 5 months old. However, if the brewery thinks it should fall acceptably within the IPA category at this point, I'd disagree. I'd love to try it fresh...

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

4.01/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
