On tap @ Jai Thai Fremont. Poured a pale hazy yellow w/ a thin head, some decent lacing as I drained the glass.

Aroma is light and crisp, floral but not very strong.

Taste is a blend of pale malt, jasmine tea, and subdued floral hops. Bitter on the finish. Washed down the tasty Thai food but didn't overpower it.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light, drinkable.

Overall a different twist on an IPA but the floral jasmine tea qualities didn't really add much. No need to have again.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of jasmine fragrance are present in the nose—if I was blindfolded I could picture myself being in a tropical location such as Hawaii.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of jasmine flowers. Slight hints of bitterness and underlying caramel malts are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that the jasmine was a little too overpowering in the sense that it completely obscured the rest of this beer. I still liked it, but if you don't like jasmine this probably won't be a beer for you.

From a bomber into a Tallgrass tulip

A: peachy amber, with a puffy white 2 finger head, good retention, great lacing
S: some flowery jasmine, as advertised, bready malt, a little fruit but not really citrus...lychee or something like that.
T: follows the nose, kind of tea-like...very unique and different, but nice. There is very little sweetness here, but it isn't exactly bitter either. The floral jasmine notes are present throughout, but really come through strongly in the back half and mixes with some other herbal notes and something that gives it a little prickliness. The malt here provides a nice backbone, but doesn't add a whole lot to the flavor, as far as I can tell.
M: medium to high carbonation, slick and wet, taste really lingers.

Overall: unique and different. If I had regular access to this, I'd drink it on occasion, when I was looking for a change of pace. It's refreshing and interesting.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

BOTTLE: 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass. Branded black pry-off pressure cap. Uninteresting label design.

6.3% ABV. Reviewed live as an IPA per the label. Served cold into a stem-tulip. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

No bubble show.

HEAD: One finger wide. White in colour. Nice creaminess and thickness. Soft complexion. Retention is above average - about 3-4 minutes.

BODY: Clear translucent copper of average vibrance. Clean; no yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Appears adequately carbonated. It's not unique or special for an IPA, but I find it appealing for the style.

AROMA: Jasmine is evident, and complements the floral hop notes nicely. Pale malts. Really flowery, to a rather pleasant extent. Clean and resinous without coming off soapy. It's not piney, citrusy, or juicy, but boy do the floral notes kick ass.

A pleasant intriguing aroma of moderate strength. The jasmine is a stand-out.

No alcohol, off-notes, or yeast character is detectable.

TASTE: Jasmine flower, subsidiary floral hops, ample amounts of hoppy resins, some dank more cannabis-evocative notes, faint herbal character, clean pale malts, a dash of caramalt, and some hop oils. Bitterness is mild, but it doesn't have too much caramalt sweetness.

It's nicely balanced and enjoyable, but isn't perfect. It's complex enough, and the jasmine lends it unique nuance. But there's little subtlety, and it could of course be more intricate. Some citrusy zest might be nice. I do like it, and the jasmine makes it memorable. But it's not as fresh tasting or interesting as superior beers in the style, and lacks their complexity and subtlety. Depth, duration, and intensity of flavour are all average.

TEXTURE: Lightly oily. Smooth, wet, medium-bodied, fairly refreshing, slightly overcarbonated, and approachable. It's a bit dragging on the palate, especially in the late second act.

Not gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, or scratchy.

Overall presence on the palate is nice. This texture is a decent complement to the taste, but doesn't elevate the beer.

OVERALL: I think they could get away with a higher ABV. It's drinkable and enjoyable, and I'll easily finish the bottle with my friend (Blakelive784), but I doubt I'd buy it again. It does make me curious to try Elysian's other offerings, and the jasmine is very interesting. Worth trying, but far from world-class. A nice little IPA.

I picked one of these up before heading over to the coast for some camping figuring that my wife might enjoy it. I have to admit we were both pleasantly surprised how the jasmine flower melds with the medium hoppiness of this IPA. If you were to drink his beer without reading the label I don't know that I would classify it as an India pale ale even though I know it is by brewing process and ingredients. At the end of the day it is a very enjoyable beer and very different in a good way. Plus you can kill two birds with one stone by getting your wife a beer and flowers in one bottle.

Choo Choo... Sweet express is arriving at the station. If you want your tongue coated in sugar and the glorious mediocrity we've come to expect from Elysian, take a swig of this abortion of an idea. Anything you flavor your rice shouldn't flavor your beer. This brewery consistently flies way under my expectation and exulted taste. Don't waste your money on this Seattlite sewer water. Buy something that won't engage your gag reflex so strongly.

(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.

I had no idea what to expect with this one. Poured it into a glass and saw a lot stuff floating. Hmmm? Sediment? Bad bottle? Smell is fantastic. Tropical fruity and floral. Can taste hops but almost no bitterness. If I knew there were fruit in it, I would say guava and underripe mango. There is a little bitterness way at the end, but it is very mellow and pleasant. The floating stuff doesn't settle to the bottom so I'm thinking its supposed to be there. Can't feel the floating stuff but almost feels slightly sticky in the mouth. Think this would be awesome with spicy food, especially Indian, Mexican, or
any Asian.

A: Bomber poured into a tulip glass reveals a hazy, golden orange colour with a foamy well-risen head. Foam sticks to the sides of the glass that fades slowly down the sides. The colt suggests transparency, but there isn't much to speak of. This beer is quite pretty and bright.

S: I don't like the way this smells. There's took much malt coming through on the nose and it smells very corn-y, like an AAL. For an IPA, the hop profile is extremely weak in this.

T: First sip reveals a strong malt backbone with some unpleasant tastes on the finish. The beer rounds out, however, and eventually reveals a subtle hop bitterness with some fruity sweetness that complements the malt. Paired with sweet potatoes, this beer even has full-blown mango aromas and taste. The beer should be slurped to really open it up, and it needs to be constantly swirled to release its full flavor, or else it becomes too solidly malty and impenetrable. The Jasmine qualities barely come across, except in the bitterness. I wish this were more floral.

M: typical mouthfeel for a fresh IPA. Very effervescent without being overly carbonated. Very nearly perfect for the style.

O: I probably wouldn't get this again because I prefer a more fruity, citrusy, or grapefruity IPA, but I can see the appeal in this beer if you like malty, bitter IPAs that have some pleasant astringency. Not for me, but not bad for what it is.

Amber orange color with a thick head with medium retention and floating particles.
Nice predominant and stable aroma of jasmine and papaya.
Flavor of jasmine tea, orange citrusy, clear malt sweetness, papaya, pineapple and spices. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering floral note.
Medium body with good carbonation.
Interesting brew, flavor starts heavily on respective floral note and moves towards citrusy.

Pours orange/amber with a large head.
Massive jasmine on the nose, almost to the point of exclusion of everything else. Some sweet crystal malt underneath.
Flavours are exactly the same - jasmine throughout, some clean malt and a spicy, hoppy bitterness in the finish.
Needs more carbonation. Perhaps a bit heavy-handed on the jasmine.

From 22 oz bomber to pint glass

The bottle claims they were going for an East-meets-West, fusion-style ale with the West Coast IPA and the added Jasmine. However, the floral aspects bend the hop profile wet and grassy, making this a bit of a Northwest/Southwest IPA combo. And it's quite refreshing to boot.

A: Apricot-orange in color, cloudy and completely opaque. A small sudsy head forms on a gentle pour leaving lacing everywhere.

S: Citrusy and grassy, the added jasmine is there but just adds a bit of a floral aspect. A lot of hop combination yield similar tones without added flowers (which would make sense). The bouquet is dry and wispy toward the back, as if the malt-backbone is either light or nicely harmonized.

T: The flavors are for more sweet and fruity than the nose implies. At the front of the palate, there's a sweet tone as if from a fruit you've never tried, presumably from the added jasmine. It's a little like the fruit around the pit of a apricot or nectarine, but not distinct. With all of the fruity aspects, the brew never becomes treacly or one-dimensional - the hops work to dry, and a touch of boozy warmth kicks in at the back of the palate. Finishes quickly and bitter-sweet.

M: Medium-bodied, medium carbonation. The brew has an oily slick complexion that accents the sweet aspects.

(Notes of 22/08/13) Coming in a 650ml bomber brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; production date 15/06/2013, served gently chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a dark golden colour with very light haze, coming with a thick and creamy beige froth with extremely good retention, on top of gentle and constant flows of carbonation.
S: lightly sweet citrusy and lychee-ish upfront coupled with lightly sour fruit esters, balanced with mildly biscuity pale malts; given a very good swirl, the aroma reminds me of German floral hops big time, also with an acute tinge of acidity aside, as well as an interesting edge of raw grains.
T: perfectly effervescent, the intake shows, wow, lots of signs of sweet jasmine flowers on the palate, with the dried flowery fragrance mingling with the otherwise gentle and elegant hoppiness, leaving gristy and starchy malt sweetness and a slightly dry-ish palate to linger alongside the really fine bitter-fragrant jasmine-tea-ish quality in the finish. Straight forward comes the flavour profile, “short-lived” but ever so enjoyable.
M&O: the mouthfeel is superb, medium-minus bodied against a softly carbonated palate, while the flavour profile allows the real flowery elements to shine through and pair well with the hop profile and the gentle malt backbone. All in all, this is unlike any IPA I’ve tried, and I’m deeply fond of it…

I am sure that some brewers just try to outdo the guy next door or next state, but whoever brewed this one just got creative and risked it....Wow! Avatar Jasmine is right. Very impressed and this one will certainly make it to the party, the finest of parties of course since this is the classiest brew I have tasted since coming to the PNW!

I really dig this IPA. It feels like a hipster IPA(perfect since it's from Seattle) because it breaks the norm of a standard IPA. The jasmine really hops bring down the bitterness, but still have a good hop taste to make it feel like an IPA. This has turned into my go to IPA.

If you have ever wondered what drinking the Jasmine flower might be like, try this beer. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. It was a nice change of pace for an IPA because it gave a new type of floral flavors and aromas that you just wont get from hops alone.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy, brassy golden color with less than one finger of white foam head. Moderate lacing remains and a few clusters of bubbles cling to the submerged wall of the glass.

S: Artificial mixed fruit reminds of hard candy or children's cereal. Malt is fairly refined, slightly bready. No hops influence is detectable.

T: Begins off-dry, with understated pale malt and distinct floral jasmine. Jasmine persists into the middle where malt takes on an undercooked or cornstarch quality. The finish is weakly bitter but surprisingly spicy, reminiscent of a rye beer.

M: Thin viscosity, wet and lively on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This experimental IPA offers an alternative to the dry-hopped modern formula, with a flavor profile that delivers some of the features of dry-hopping without confronting the palate with an IPA-sized level of bitterness. The smell is a very mixed bag of qualities that comes across as dishonest and off-putting.

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden orange in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some copper + orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of floral jasmine with just a hint of toasted and caramel malts underneath it.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of lightly toasted malts with some light caramel sweetness. That is followed by a moderate to strong flavor of floral jasmine. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that lingers in the finish for a moderate amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.

O: The addition of jasmine to an IPA is an interesting add and a successful one in my opinion. I think it makes a rather pedestrian seeming IPA an interesting drink. The aromas of jasmine remind me of being out in the garden.

Enjoyed out of a brown 22 oz bottle and poured into a 50 cL stein glass. No discernible bottling or "best buy" date. I love LetsPour for beers like this, because Elysian doesn't distribute to my area.

Appearance - I can see particulate swirling around down in the bottom of the bomber. Pouring moderate, to generate head but not disturb too much sediment, generates a one-finger of creamy, microbubble peach-white colored head. Retention is moderate and the lacing is silky and clean. Body is deep and ruddy orange, like a jar of marmalade. Some haziness and lazy carbonation drifting up from the bottom of the glass.

Smell - I was curious whether the jasmine would be present or barely detectible, since the flower puts off a delicate fragrance. To my enjoyment, the jasmine is plenty detectible--sweet with elements of grass and sunny meadow. Hops blend into the floral roundness.

Taste - Again, the jasmine element is plenty aggressive, and the complex blend of hops is harder to find. Some doughy sweet, like King's Hawaiian bread, with nectar and white-flesh fruits. Reveals light caramelized bitterness before finishing fairly dry.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and smooth with carbonation on the low side of moderate. Appropriate for the delicate, but complex flavors.

Overall a wonderfully unique take on IPA. Milder than many, especially if you're looking for the type of IPA to smack you in the mouth with hops, but a deliciously drinkable beer. Executes perfectly on the premise. It's not a go-to, everyday IPA to me, but I'd welcome a bottle of this every so often to change it up. Fantastic.

Time for the Avatar Jasmine IPA. This is our final beer from Elysian, and while I’m sad they are over, I’m excited to drink this. I mean, it IS an IPA. Oh, and I really liked the movie Avatar. Not sure they are related, but still something I can relate.

So we are sitting at the bar, and two people beside us start talking about beer and their travels. Her name was Kristen, and her boyfriend Mark started chatting. Fun! They are so nice, and I hope they are going to check out the blog. I did tell them I would mention them. They are pretty much celebrities now!

The final beer is a jasmine IPA that uses actual jasmine flowers. Jasmine is apparently grown here in the Pacific Northwest. I saw some at the Pike Place Market, but outside of soap… And beer, not sure what I would use it for. Speaking of beer, let’s drink!

Before we start drinking, I will mention the manager grabbed us a sample of this on tap before we opened the bottle. We reviewed the ESB on tap, the Dragonstooth in a bottle, and now the jasmine both on tap and in the bottle. Lets drink!

In the Glass: The beer poured like a good IPA should. I will mention, when I posted about being here on Facebook, Stephanie Hardwell commented about THIS beer. She said she loved it, so I am excited to try it. Oh, and while we were prepping this blog post, we learned of the “12 Beers of the Apocalypse” series they did. They still had a few beers from the series left, and Sheryl ended up buying a few bottles. We will report on those when we drink them. I hope she lets me have a sip.

Aroma: I’m not smelling much jasmine here. Not many hops, either. I can picture this as being an entry level IPA. I know hops are a BIG part of brewing in California, but I’m not sure they are that popular up here in the PNW. I also say that not knowing what jasmine tastes like… Or smells like! Here we go.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel on this is pretty basic. Not much up front, and it slides down with a hint of bubbles.

Flavor: There is a load of fruity flavors at first, and while the finish is a bit dry, the flavor, which I assume is jasmine, is a nice unexpected twist on an IPA. It’s not a double IPA but still a well balanced and low hopped flavor. I am curious to learn the IBU on this offering.

Aftertaste: The aftertaste is nice, again offering a subtle drying affect that I didn’t expect. I also just learned that jasmine and lavender are different! I mean, I knew they were different, but confused the two. My apologizes. Not up on my flower talk! The burp on this is nice too, bringing back the same flavors I had on my first trip. Let me try the one on tap.

On tap, the beer is more balanced and has an almost lager mouthfeel. The one on tap is also a bit warmer, but still a tasty treat.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is floral, some breadiness, not much in the way of hops. Taste is somewhat floral, jasmine is present, more malts than hops, a very light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not a bad beer, but lacking some of the punch expected in an IPA.

Enjoyed this bomber bottle out of a Belgian snifter glass.

A: Pours a clear golden straw with a 2-finger white head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail and ending in a sold lace.

S: Jasmine and hoppy aroma with a fruity background.

T: Smooth and sweet jasmine fruity flavor with a sharp bitter middle and finishes on the bitter side of dry.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Great twist on an IPA – would grab this again.

Instantly upon opening the bottle i thought "this smells great!"

Semi hazed dull orange color with bright white sticky head that dies rather quickly. Lots of jasmine on the nose with ripe orangey and citric hops.

Very very tea like. Herbal and almost like a dry hopped green tea. Medium bodied pleasently dry finish. Jasmine adds a nice sweetness up front and an herbal teal like essence o nthe back end. Hop provide an orange like flavor and bitterness that merely balances rather than overpowers. Dry sweet and tasty. This is one damn good IPA. Unique in it's infusion of jasmine rather than fruit or honey or anything like that. This is an awesome beer.

This beer is definitely awesome food, can't deny that.
