Cask @ Monks Retreat. Another hipster asshole who likes this beer... Very floral taste, donít think Iíve ever tasted a jasmine so wouldnít know thatís what it was, but it makes a decent beer, with the sweetness and perfume balanced with a light but lingering bitterness. Would have another if I didnít have a bus to catch.

On tap at St Augustineís in Vancouver. A medium Amber beer with white head. Faint floral nose. On the palate the floral note is evident and not to my taste, frankly. Reminds me of tea, which is not something I normally associate with beer. vaguely pleasant, but a 4 oz taster is more than enough, thanks. 3.

Draft pour pint at the fields location. Pours a light clear copper color with a short foam head. Wonderful white grape aroma. Smells like a sour beer. Flavor is very floral as expected with a ton of grape and berry flavor. Sweet, and super drinkable. Very tasty

HIGHB4LL (800) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2015
Finger white head, golden color, light cloudy, good lacing. Aroma: jasmine, wheat, floral hops, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, dry finish. Taste: sweet caramel, with jasmine overwhelming the palate for a brief second, on into floral and piney hops that overwhelm and finish out the taste. Overall, very refreshing, interesting, liked this more out of a bottle than on tap, the jasmine is less overwhelming.

On draft at the local bar a different type of ipa. Floral smell and taste was bitter with the jasmine adding a taste of Tea. Not my favorite or one I would recommend to a friend

Pours a hazy orange with a small fluffy white head. Aromas of clove, tons of floral, jasmine, and fruity. Taste was medium sweetness, not much bitter. Not exaclty my favorite style, but well done enough for me to give a solid rating. Body felt light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Well done and interesting beer.

Pretty good ipa with a twist from Elysian brewing in Seattle. One of my favorite breweries by far.

The aroma is citrus and floral with undertones of cloves . The color is a dark orange with a cloudy appearance. The head is somewhat thin. The taste is on the sweet side not a bitter ipa. The body is light with a slick texture. The carbonation is average.The finish is astringent. Overall this is definitely a winner in my book, what a great beer.

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.
