Very flowery. The Jasmine blends well with the hops to leave a sweet nectery after taste. The intial flavor is not dissimalar to a flower petal. So, it’s like sucking a sweet flower.

Today’s live review is this. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice golden bronzed amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Chunks of what appears to be jasmine flowers seem to be suspended within the body. There’s barely any lacing at all. The smell, well holy jasmine Batman. I once had a jasmine infused beer back when I was stationed in New England by Rock Art and that one has no comparison to this. This has got to be the most jasmine infused smelling beer I’ve ever had. Luckily, after a bit of warming there is some light sweet malt helping to balance it a bit. The taste was sweet and floral (hmmm...go figure). Its fairly balanced between the jasmine and the malts, but this is one that doesn’t seem to show much hoppiness to it. The aftertaste has a nice lingering florally soothingness to it that leads to a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium with a fairly nice refreshing sessionable quality about it. The carbonation is somewhat smooth. Overall, what a really nice relaxing beer and that’s not the alcohol speaking. Though the jasmine could probably be toned back, I’d have probably have this again as a fairly good night cap, oh crap there goes the rest of my day.

Pushing the envelope is right with this particular beer. Pour was light a and orangey with some bits in, small white head. Overpowering in floral, and so little hops coming through that it is rather like drinking a carbonated tea or bottle of perfume. Completely underwhelmed with this selection, and will not finish it.

Aroma is a slight sweet floral note with sweet malts. Taste is bitter up front bht strangy gives way to a nice. sweetness. The body is a light gold with a pesrl head that retains poorly.

Tap at The Sampler. Pours a light yellow amber, with reasonable white head. Very floral IPA with almost overpowering amount of Jasmine.

danlo (1050) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
1pt 6 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy orangey deep gold colour with floating bits, white foam head and aroma of grain, floral. Taste is malt caramel, grainy with fruity orange & flowery jasmine notes plus some citrusy bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry biscuity bitter finish. Quite OK.

The aroma is wonderful and floral. Almost perfumey. The taste just doesn’t work for me. Almost like bath soap. Nice try just not for me.
