Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer was served a lightly hazed orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded very fast leaving almost no lacing at all.

Smell – The aroma was a mix of bready aromas and a strong floral hop aroma. As the name of the brew predicts the flowery aroma is mainly of a jasmine aroma, although there are other aromas of a herbal nature mixed with the jasmine flower hop smells.

Taste – The taste starts out bready with some caramel sweetness up front. The tongue is quickly met with some hop flavors of a floral and citrus nature. The citrus is on the sweeter side with some orange as well as a light grapefruit taste. Toward the end the floral flavors get stronger, with a jasmine flavor dominating the hop taste. In the end a quite jasmine flower and mildly bready taste is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer was on the average side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that was rather average as well. Both were rather appropriate for a nice balance for the floral hop flavors and the more malty and bready flavor while keeping a good level of drinkability.

Overall – A very flowery IPA. It was not all that bitter and was quite easy drinking.

Pours a cloudy orange with green highlights. It has a white bubbly head that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

Smells of jasmine, green tea, sweet floral, slight breadiness.

Taste floral and jasmine up front with a bitter herb punch followed by sweet bread taste from the malt. This has some real interesting flavors, but they are all over the place. The brew lacks harmony and a sense of cohesiveness. A fun beer to try, but not one I'll be going back to.

22oz Bomber into pint glass

A- Cloudy orange with suspended white particles. Some settle out slowly but none dissolve - much unfiltered goodness remains. Maybe this is the jasmine? Good head lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Mmm fruity esters and candy, no joke.

T- Floral hops and sweetened jasmine green tea flavor the caramelly, bready malts that balance out a hint of grapefruit pucker.

M- Perfect: Smooth, medium body. Refreshment in the mouth and satisfaction in the lingering aftertaste.

O- This is not a standard NW IPA, nor is it reminiscent of more traditional British varieties. Unique for the category and very flowery. An all-season delight that could be paired with many meals. I like it as an appetizer beer - it won't compromise the palate before eating, but food accompaniment is almost an unnecessary distraction while enjoying this brew.

Vishnu would approve.
