bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Aroma of floral (hop?) and malt. Ripe apricot color with a white head that doesnít immediately film and leaves lace trace. Thin to medium body. Strong hint of jasmine flavor (kind of like the tea). A real kick in the mouth. Light fruity sweetness balanced by lots of bitter. Seems like more that 40 IBUs. The finish is nicely balanced sweet and bitter. Incredibly enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (10068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy copper color with an average off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good floral, earthy hoppy and herbs aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Moderate Jasmine bittersweet flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew with spicy food.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Drat at Paradiso Dupont. Clear gold, scant head. Aroma is subtle damp hay. Taste is simple malt, bitter finish. Average.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear orange with an average, frothy ivory head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, toasted, cereal), heavy hops (floral, herbal, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with heavy notes of jasmine. Flavor is average malt (caramel, toasted, cereal), heavy hops (floral, herbal, grassy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of perfumed jasmine. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, low creaminess with a dry finish. The jasmine is way overdone in this beer, leaving it a perfume bomb that I could not finish.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Mondial de la BiŤre 2011, Strasbourg - clear golden beer; dusty hoppy nose, flowery and unclean; medium-bodied, sticky, bitter and overspiceed; hoppy finish - unclean and dubious

Ratman197 (9012) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2005
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.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Gold pour. Light head. Floral hops lead the way with some citrus backing as well. The jasmine flowers are an odd addition. I would have never guessed what I was tasting, but I donít think i really liked it. It just didnít seem to meld with the hops right. Some caramel malt balanced this one a little.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Draft...Mid-GABF í06 at Falling Rock Tap House, Denver... Hazy orange ale with a mid-sized, tight, white head. Terrific retention. Reserved, citrusy, floral aroma with a whisper of biscuit. Excellent balance in flavor... evenly malty, bitter and tangy; straight across the board. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Dry finish. I didnít pick up on any jasmine in the aroma.

hopdog (8521) - 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.
