Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from bomber with a clear orange/amber/copper color. Very nice head.

Aroma is strong jasmine and slight sweetness and hops.

Flavor starts out with a very strong sweet jasmine flavor which lingers a long while. A bit of bitter and citrus hops but mostly sweet jasmine flavors throughout. My initial reaction was as though it was candy, though not in an all together positive manner.

Overall I am glad I tried this beer as I have never had anything like it. Though it is too sweet for me and a little much in terms of Jasmine. I give them credit for originality, perhaps this just isn't my thing.

I love this beer and the Jasmine brings out all the flavorful hop notes with the floral notes accentuating the complexity of the flavor.
A- Dark Golden with a nice head
S- Aroma is mainly jasmine with hop notes
T- Flavors accentuate each other well

Slightly hazy with an yellow-amber color. Minimal and short lived head but decent lace. Understated aroma that's balanced between grain and caramel. Subtle jasmine elements as well. The taste is earthy and floral. Healthy earthy bitter finish, more East coast than West coast. Light carbonation and medium body.

This beer poured out as a lightly hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. The smell of the beer was hoppy and a bit floral... perhaps even spicy. The taste of the beer was good, I enjoyed it, it was bitter and yet it kept giving off some other flavors that I couldn't really pinpoint. The mouthfeel was light and smooth. Overall this beer is worth having again I think. It's a good IPA in my opinion.

Trying the Avatar Jasmine IPA from Elysian Brewing and it is an interesting beer. It poured a hazy straw color with thin white head that is lacing. The smell is very floral/pot pourri. The taste starts very floral and then a anise taste finishes the drink. The mouthfeel is a nice medium body with good carbonation. Overall the floral taste keeps me less than enthused...although I am glad to have a chance to part take.

had on tap at rattle n hum after a jam with some buddies. showed up in a pint glass. pretty dark in here, but when held to the light, kind of orange. smells like a watered down ipa. flavor isn't bad, more candy than hoppy. kind of smartie like in the flavor and a bit bitter finish. decent, but nothing great.
