22 oz purchased in Wilmington, NC at request of the cashier
A: Light yellow, slight orange hints. Vigorous carbonation. Head lasts the entire time at a small albeit nice height.
S: This is a fresh bottle and the hops really show. Big mango, citrus and various tropical aromas hit followed by a bit of earthy, piney notes. There is something that I cannot put my finger on. At first it made the smell seem a bit off, but actually started to enjoy. Onions? Very little malt shows on the nose.
T: Best part of the beer IMO. Mango, citrus, pine, pineapple. Big up front hops. Followed by biscuity, cracker malts.
M: Medium-bodied, long-lasting but not overly intense bitterness. Insanely drinkable. Went through the 22oz within 15 minutes.
O: Very good IPA. For the ABV, it is almost TOO easy to drink.
Wish I could get it up here in NY. On my trip back to NC, I had two foothills beers: Hoppyum, and this, Jade IPA. Should have picked up a bottle of their DIPA. I recommend picking up a bottle of this if you see it in a store in the Southeast.
Serving type: bottle
