2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Clear dark golden orange with plenty of tiny bits of sediment and two fingers of off-white head. Aromas of big floral and herbal notes, flowers, light citrus. Tastes of floral, herbal and flowery notes, light citrus, caramel and sweet malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Probably my least favorite from Elysian.

Gold pour, frothy white head. Big time jasmine. Super floral. Frothy and light bitterness. Really clean and smooth with a touch of pepper

Tried at Hopscotch. A different style of IPA, with a floral slant. Taste was similar to drinking a jasmine ice-t. Not my style for a beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of an unusual touch for this brew. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a dense, creamy off white head. The nose is floral and herbal with a dose of citrus and resin based hops. The middle has a light caramel and honey sweet malt, toasted lightly with a blend of floral notes. The finish is moderately bitter and dry with a mild jasmine note that lingers on. An interesting brew for sure, but not quite my cup of tea

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An American IPA done right, Avatar Jasmine is another outstandingly aromatic brew, with grass, herbs and a bit of candy combining with the flowers.
Pours a slightly clouded yellow, with a foamy, medium head that sticks around. Palate echoes the nose, but more so. Citrus hops blend into the jasmine, sharp and smooth at once without jousting for supremacy.
Full, smooth mouth drops off a bit at the end, and hop bitterness comes through, but wrapped in flowers and yeast. A well-conceived and thoughtfully made beer, very sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber into a glass. Clear golden pour. Looks like a pils. Aroma is cereal and floral with light grassiness. Definitely a pleasant jasmine aroma. Problem is the jasmine melds with the other aromas and makes some...similar to skunkiness. Taste is clean and lightly floral. Light bitterness. Not bad...nothing special and slightly unbalanced.

Bomber - pours a hazy golden color. The aroma is heavy on the jasmine with a background of malt, hops and wheat. Great jasmine flavor on top of a mild hoppy IPA. Delicious with spicy Chinese food. Very different beer....quirky but lovable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale hazy amber, small white head with minimal retention. Smell is grass, jasmine, floral, vanilla and caramel. Taste is initially a slight maltiness, followed quickly by floral and grapefruit notes, and fading out into a lingering taste of jasmine. Slightly creamy in body, softly carbonated, with a long and slightly astringent finish. Surprisingly refreshing as well. Quite enjoyed this, unique but very well balanced.

On tap at Dig Bar. It pours a deep amber gold with a biscuity malty aroma with light floral notes. The taste is an Amazingly floral flavor - tons of jasmine & biscuity malts. Medium bodied with a zesty mouthfeel. If you like fruit or floral beers this is great stuff.

"cool beer...somewhere between a pale and an IPA, which prevents me from rating it a touch higher, but it was a little low on the hops, especially in the aroma, for an IPA. A little light in color as well. However, the beer is balanced wonderfully between the fruity hops and the jasmine. The flavor and finish is excellent, and very very smooth. Nice body. The aroma is quite pleasant, but not quite assertive enough. Delicate is a great word to describe this beer. Quite interesting and worth a shot, but falls short of greatness."
