Probably my least favorite out of the five beer sampler. I assume the flowery smell and taste was from the jasmine, but it was so subtle as to be barely recognizable. All other signature IPA flavor profiles were toned down as well, leaving essentially a watery shadow of what it could have been.

Gold orange color with a thin lasting head. Aroma of light mats with some floral jasmine. Lightly malts with a subtle breadiness accompanied by a lightly floral hoppy finish. The jasmine leaves a pleasant clean floral herbal flavor in the mouth. I like the drinkability on this one, although light, it is extremely pleasant.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orangeish body with a small, white head. Smell: Pale malts with a touch of toffee coupled with a full floral scent of jasmine. Taste: Palt malts with a medium toffee-like sweetness. Floral jasmine flavor emerges and ushers in a medium bitterness to balance. Splash of light herbal tea. Hint of flower stems. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: You know, thats not half bad. The jasmine puts an exciting, new twist on what would just be another IPA.

This one poured an orange color. The aroma is jasmine, perfume, and some light citrus. The flavor contained some jasmine and oranges. The beer was alright but fairly bland and watery for an IPA. On to the next beer.

From bomber I brought back from Elysian. Has a nice toffee caramel sweetness with a modest aroma of jasmine flowers. Light flowery hoppiness, too. Perhaps a bit papery-stale but it is at least an 8-month old bottle. Brilliant orange-amber clear, with pillowy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonatoin and a soft feeling on the palate. Starts with mild bitterness, a light caramel sweetness and dusty grain. Jasmine taste is there, but more of the herbal bitterness youd expect from an aromatic blossom. Bitterness comes in stronger in the finish while maintaining a bit of fruity character and jasmine essence. Without the interesting jasmine, the IPA itself is fair, but not a big one.

Nose was very floral, poured into snifter glass. Overpowering jasmine scent, but smooth and pleasant at the same time. Thinner than many IPAs.

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is honey, jasmine, and some earthy citrus hops. Flavor is honey, jasmine, grain, and a bitter earthy finish.

tobizag (34) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2008
the nose, as in the description, is quite full with floral and hop aromas. pours slightly copper with a full white head. flavor is defined by the jasmine, but is classic IPA nonetheless...plenty of hops and bitterness, with interesting malts hidden throughout. the flavor is long lasting, and palate is full. i highly recommend this brew.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells of earth, dry malt, hints of jasmine, some citrus, breaddy. Tastes of oranges, dry malt, some bitterness, jasmine, pepper, some spice. Mouthfeel is full. Finish yields a nice bitterness. Nicely balanced.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Poured a copper-amber body with a decent white head. Hoppy, sweet, spicy nose. Jasmine provided a sweet, slick flavor that was quite subtle. Generously hopped and surprisingly delicious.
