2.68/5  rDev -28%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

taste- bready, malty, sweet hops

color- gold/light-orange

clarity- clear

smell- bready, maly, delicate floral notes

body- light weight

appearance- thin white head, mild carbonation, head retention was minimal although on the second pour i was able to muster an ice cream thick head

overall impression- let down, not as i remembered at the oregon brewer's festival

notes and comments- availability:summer, dried jasmine flowers added in the boil and hopback, alcohol is masked, bottle says good until september '09, not picking up any of the floral notes the other reviewers are talking about...when i saw this beer i was so excited to take it home i bought two bottles. i have good memories drinking it at the brewery and other places but it does not translate in the bottle...maybe this one is off. i don't think this beer does justice to the ipa category...as the label states, it might be best judged as a herb/spice beer. this was a tough review to write because i'm a big cantwell fan.

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.
