Pretty interesting beer here. Aroma is citrus and hoppy, nothing out of the order. Flavor is just like an IPA. The interesting part is the finish. Thatís when the unique jasmine flavor comes out. Not bad.

Light amber pour with nice off-white head. Very much flower on the nose, with some sweetness to it. Flavor is kind of hoppy, yet the sweet taste of jasmine takes control. Medium body with a good bit of malt that leads to the finish. Rather interesting.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Very floral and smooth. Kind of grassy and with a strong , tart citrus finish. Sweet malt base, medium bodied, some slight pine and light spice - there is also an interesting berry sweetness to it that I really enjoy. Pretty dry with a little soapy feel to it. This was a difficult rate, I dont know why but this drink seems to have lots of notes foreign to my palate.

Amber in color with a thin head. This had a sweet floral aroma with a deep hops hose. I liked the flavor which had a floral and hops flavor. The Jasmine was subtle yet there. It was very nice to drink and this was a great beer to chat about with friends.

Thanks to Oakes for sending this one out. Amber colour with a thin tan head. Fresh and very floral/herbal aroma, loads of jasmine aroma. The flavour is a bit soapy but not too distracting. Strong bitterness with a tea-like astringency that actually works for the beer. A bit of orange citrus hop flavour. Minerally/herbal bitterness. Itís good but I think the jasmine could be dialled back a notch.

GCBF sample. Light gold. Foamy head. Thin aroma. Hoppy without any burn. Lasting hop dryness in the finish. Donít get much from the jasmine till the flowery finish.

8/23/2007: I have been wanting to try this beer for awhile and was finally able to find it during my trip. In addition, Sean (illinismitty) recommended that I try it since he wanted to know my throughts about it... Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA pours a cloudy/murky apricot color. It has an off-white, crackly veil that produces scant lacing. The intriguing aroma is quite floral and has some sweet candy and butterscotch in it. The flavor is somewhat difficult to describe, but it is definitely very, very floral. There is also quite a bit of pale maltiness underneath as well as a hint of tea. There is an average (mild to moderate) amount of bitterness for an IPA. The finish is somewhat dry and quite pleasing. This beer has a medium to medium-full body, is smooth, and easy to drink. It is pretty good overall and would definitely have to agree with my wife on this one. It is "definitely one of the more unique beers" that we have sampled!

22 oz bottle (Alcohol 5.6% by volume) from the general store in Glacier, Washington (only $3.49!) and enjoyed at the Ambrosia Historic Bed & Breakfast Retreat in Victoria, BC, Canada. Rating #95 for this beer...
______________________________

10/08/2008: Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA Hazy honey color with a minimal ivory-colored head that doesn leave some good lacing on the glass. Slightly sweet honey maltiness with a touch of butterscotch followed by some floral hops in the aroma. The flavor is very floral with a good hop presence in the front followed by some toffee-like maltiness, and a moderate level of bitterness. The Jasmine really comes through in the flavor nicely without being too overpowering. Overall this beer is nicely balanced and has a medium body with a soft palate. This is a unique IPA that is always enjoyable.

22 fl. oz. bottle (Alcohol 5.6% by volume) shared by alexsdad06 at the weekly Party Source gathering. Thanks! This beer is still just as good as the first time I had it...
