Thanks to beerguy101 for sharing (according to chile maybe it is johnc ?) Poured a slightly hazed dark yellow. Aroma is strong of jasmine. Reminds me of green tea. Flavor of orange and lemon. Light mlat. Large jasmine sinish. Long semi-dry finish with a mild bitterness.

Sampled at the Pizza Port 9th Strong Ale Festival with some other ratebeer folks, I believe thanks are in order to beerguy101 (not sure). Anyway, this was very interesting, of course Jasmine standing out from the usual IPA characteristics. Unique and well done.

I emjoyed this last night at Pizza Portís strong ale fest, a bottle brought by JohnC to share. This was definitely an interesting brew, generally I donít think I would enjoy something this light, but the floral aspect was intriguing enough that Iíd definitely have this again. Jasmine comes through on both the nose and mouth very clearly and plays off the hop tones. The nose also smells of white grape juice. Reall neat, and I think underrated.

Wow, what a smell! The pour was a creamy, loose head. Stuck around longer than I thought it would, and a fantastic hoppy jasmine smell wafted a fair distance from the glass. Light amber colour in the glass with the tiniest bit of haze. Very fruity dry hopped taste, with a jasmine tea flavour floating on everything. A nice IPA pushed into the superlative by the great jasmine flavour. Mouthfeel was a bit oily, but well within the style. A bit more malt, maybe? I will be buying this whenever I can find it.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear amber with an amber head. Aroma was fruity and floral. Palate was medium bodied and resiny. Flavor was floral and tart with carmel and apple and a dry warming finish.

Orange color, suspended yeast particles, sticky head and light lacing. The nose is citrusy and light with floral hops, not much jasmine as I was hoping for, a bit is noticable though. I drink jasmine pearl oolong tea almost everyday at work so Iím very familiar with the smell, itís a subtle note and the hops really drown it out. The flavor is sweet and rich with a bit of bitter syrupy mouthfeel that remains. The finish is mild and balanced.

GABF 2005. Sounded very interesting, with the addition of jasmine flowers, so I had to try it. Golden with an uneven white head. Very flowery jasmine aroma, some clover honey, and orange peels. Mild hop bitterness, mainly orange peels and flowery herbs. Very interesting, indeed.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 5, 2005
On Tap @ Elysian- Pours a clear dulled orange color, small white head. Aroma of oranges, peaches, and a nice floral spiciness to it. Flavor is smooth, very balanced, spicy hops really come out nicely.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Poured a dark amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Some floaters. Aromas of jasmine (duh) with some oranges. Tastes of jasmine, oranges, with almost a honey sweetness to it. I donít really get any bitterness out of this one (didnít really strike me as an IPA). Weaker body.

Bottle. Clear, medium amber colored with a fair whitish head and decent lacing. Aroma is of moderate Jasmine and malt. Medium bodied. Jasmine comes through more in flavor, medium bodied with just enough hops to be noticeable. More of a flavored bitter than an IPA. Not bad to drink, not quite to IPA levels on the hops.
