Clear amber colored ale with a medium off-white colored head.

Smells of sweet tea and caramel. Scent of toffee candy. Faint scent of jasmine, but you have to really hunt for it.

Starts out sweet with a strong flower flavor. Strong Jasmine flavor, this beer isn't fooling around you had better try Jasmine tea first to see if you might like this. Woody flavors and again the Jasmine hammer smacks your mouth again. This is pretty much all Jasmine. Lesser taste of toffee candy.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is Jasmine flavored DAMMIT! And it hits you in the maw with another Jasmine uppercut. This was hard to finish.

Not my cup of tea here. Must be the Jasmine. So be careful when you take an adventure on this one. Lucky for me my wife did not mind the floral taste. If not for her this would have been a drain pour.

Pour: Bomber bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: Pale straw in color and hazy. No head to speak of. Aroma: Flowery with Jasmine dominating. Backbone of hops, citrus and doughy malt are revealed after the initial flowery notes. Taste: Balanced with a mixture of Jasmine and hops. Aftertaste: Consistent with the Jasmine flowery elements throughout. Finishes with a light hoppy bite. Overall: Easy drinker but expected more definite and complex elements. Good. 3.6 out of 5.

A very refreshing ipa for any occasion. Its very herbal and floral.The appearance is very hazy with particulate throughout the pint, the color is a light orange with off white thin head. Moderate lacing as I sip the pint down. The aroma is herbal with jasmine certainly apparent. Lemon rind also come through. The taste is initially herbal like, it reminds me of oregano or bay leaves. The following is malt balanced by a bitter jasmine that comes through nicely. It finishes rather dry and leaves a floral bitterness. Overall its solid and unique ipa to sip and enjoy.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a soft hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing ran around the glass nice and adequate, stringy and light.
The smell definitely had the jasmine - sweet and floral, nicely done and smooth. Light honey enters in to balance.
The taste was mainly sweet with the floral tones smoothly blending with the sweet honey. A lingering floral setting really just invades the aftertaste and bleeds into the finish.
The mouthfeel had about a light to medium bodied sort of feel. Carbonation runs light.
Overall, different for an AIPA, really nice and smooth, don't expect the bitterness to be there as in other AIPA's but the aroma is what really makes this beer and really, if anything its a real nice relaxing beer.

Very pleasant IPA. Nice floral aroma and taste. The jasmine taste reminds me of what it would be like to drink a pretty girl.
