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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Foco. Pours a milky, yellow orange appearance with an orange tinged, cream colored head that has pretty good retention. Really inviting, mango, passionfruit, creamy, jasmine, potpourri, a aroma. The nose is a bit spicy with a sweet honey element going on as well. Just a bit tart, orange/lemon citrusy, fairly strong honeysuckle, floral, creamy flavor with a bit of an herbal, bitter, kind of syrupy bite on the finish. Peachy, honey aftertaste. Easy to drink and very unique. Another beautiful IPA from Elysian!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Draft...Mid-GABF ’06 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 didn’t pick up on any jasmine in the aroma.
