On tap @ Bottleworks. Pours orangish amber with thin lacey head. Aroma is floral hops and citrus. Taste is bold citrus hops and crystal malt with notes of jasmine and nice bitterness. Creamy, pleasant mouthfeel. Nice change up from the NW IPAs I’m used to.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2012
13 oz draft on tap at Bavarian Lodge (Lisle, IL). Pours a richer amber orange hue, a bit darker overall, richer orange edges with a nice haze, dulled fiery sunset glow at times, darker with cakey offwhite head, dies to a good film and laces ok. Aromas are richer jasmine and bitter floral hops. Dry and hoppy, touches of lemon, grass, and some jasmine really grows. A touch of orange, mellow resinous pine. Touches of bready and biscuity malts, grainy breads. Initial is medium bodied, offering healthy bitter florals, earthy hops. Gentle pine, lemon, and growing jasmine like elements. Middle offers some dryness, grainy and bready malts, touches of dryness, pine, and lemons. Oranges, florals, some dryness and mellow sweetness. We roll into the backend with some sticky qualities, bit of paper, some dryness and florals. Lingering jasmine qualities and earthy bitter hops as we work on. Finish is some dryness, gentle lingering florals and lemons, touches of dry and bitter hops are the focus, with some malty bread, biscuits, some faint touches of sweeter elements. A nice beer, fresh and fairly hop driven, the jasmine adds a pleasant element. Solid.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co, London. Really nice and floral beer here, translucent amber and fairly healthy head. Strong, sweet nose as expected, almost floral enough for a puja offering natch. Really well done and satisfying IPA, with enough bitterness in the taste to balance things out.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
This is quite a dangerous beer. Tastes almost light and floral, like an elderflower beer, but with far more punch. The jasmine and Parma violet notes carry the buttering hops far too well. As a result this is an extremely drinkable beer that belies its strength. Really nice too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
