Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA

This 6.3% ABV India Pale Ale is brewed with jasmine flowers and comes from the Elysian Brewing Company of Seattle, Washington.

The beer pours a light amber with an orange tint. There is a half-inch of off-white head. The aroma is mostly jasmine, like a cold jasmine tea, with a bit of beer in the back. The taste is a malty IPA, with light floral and orange, and the pleasant and full flavor of jasmine. The flavors are in a nice balance with the jasmine taking the lead. This is very nice, and would be great with Asian food, or on a hot summer day.
