Always inventive Elysian pushes the envelope with this IPA flavored with jasmine flowers. Avatar starts with a fresh, floral jasmine aroma that proceeds to creamy malt undertones.

I didn’t think this would be very good. Turns out, it was. Floral characteristics of Jasmine, but not in any offensive way. So unique and well made that I brought a bottle home with me.

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.

Gold pour, frothy white head. Big time jasmine. Super floral. Frothy and light bitterness. Really clean and smooth with a touch of pepper ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

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.

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.
