Beer review from BA Mag Sep 2007.

Brewed with English Pale, German Munich, German Carahell, English Crystal malts bittered with Chinook hops, finished with Glacier and Amarillo hops. Dried Jasmine flowers were added in the boil and hopback. Avatar references its literal meaning: an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu--the Supreme Being.

Drops into the glass shimmering, golden and clear at first, but turns hazy from sediment--more of a dirty peach with large white chunks of sediment attracting carbonation. Obviously an unfiltered offering, but it clears up after a while. Head sports white creamy lace with plenty of stickage. Opens up with an amazing fresh floral jasmine aroma, with suggestions of oranges. Smooth, well-rounded and near full-bodied, with a chewy feel. Slight prickle on the palate. A big jasmine tea-like presence runs through the entire beer and sets the tone. Malt is full of depth--sweet, with more suggestions of oranges mingling amongst a toasty and bready malt, plus a kiss of caramel and honey. A very light bitterness complements the jasmine with some hop spice and coarse tannins, but allows the herb to shine. Biscuity-dry toward the end. Light jasmine and sweetness in the linger.

Sublime, well-crafted, original and damn tasty. Certainly not a typical IPA, but perhaps one of the most unique IPAs on the planet. Worthy of a reference to a god? Well, at least one of them.

On tap @ Redbones in a 12 oz flute.

Shimmering golden hue, mild haze and good head retention. Mild yet slightly pungent hop aroma, hint of fruit and biscuity malt in the aroma and flavor. Bitter upfront, kiss of malt in the middle and then finishes with more hop and a tingly spice in the end.

A solid spiced IPA, a bit small for an American IPA but certainly drinkable.

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.
