2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Clear golden, small frothy white head, splotchy lacing, moderate carbonation. Very floral nose, and I mean VERY floral. Assuming that its Jasmine I am smelling, and a whole lot of it. Unfortunately it reminds me of a bathroom air freshener, as its very strong on the nose. Fairly strong up front, very floral, with the IPA finally emerging on the backside. This seems to have more emphasis on the flowers than the IPA, when I think it should be the other way around. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes with a nice hop touch, someone creamy as stated in the commercial description, but the Jasmine lingers well beyond. Very interesting, but perhaps a bit too much Jasmine. Either that or not enough IPA.   Turn it down or turn me over, cuz I am done!

Wow...lots of jasmine here, but the hops atually blend very well with it. Very perfumey and flowery beyond compare. I think maybe a touch overpowering but interesting and tasty nonetheless. Surprisingly well rounded and palatable with a nice tailing finish.

Tap at brewpub, Fragrant nose, Jasimine dominates, though toffee malts in there too. Hazy golden orange color. No head. Sweet and bitter flavors. Jasimine and citrus, gf and orange. Thin body bitter finish, Tasty, nice touch with the jasmine, who’da thunk.

We are blessed in the NW with lots of great IPA’s to choose from this one isn’t one of them in my opinion. It is ok, not as much flavor to it as I am looking for in an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium orange color. Small head. Aroma is fruity, floral and malty. A medium bodied IPA flavored with jasmine flowers. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Lots going on in this one. It’s a nice IPA with the addition of jasmine flavors, adds a nice floral finish to the beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

On tap at the Oregon Brewers Festival 04. Pours a dark amber with a small off-white head. Strong floral jasmine aroma, very strong without much hop interfearance. Taste starts sweet and full of jasmine flower thing and ends mildly bitter, not much for an IPA, but a very interesting brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange with an off-white head and nice lacing. The aroma is jasmine, think jasmine rice. The flavor is citrus mixed with jasmine. The jasmine is too much for me. Medium-light body. The jasmine does not work for me. It makes the beer almost cloying.
