This beer should be interesting. Thanks to Beerness for this one. Dated 01/29/2014 so fairly fresh.

Pours a decent fluffy creamy 1.5 finger head that fades fairly slowly, nice lacing when it does, mostly clear slight sediment honey orange color.

Nose nice citrus tropical hops, clementine, melon, mango, hint of musty resinous passion fruit, all mixed together nicely, nice citrus with mild tropical fruit all around. It also brings a mild earthy very slight piney like hops aroma, almost forest floor but barely, and just a touch of malt underneath.

Taste is nice as well, more of the same hops, mix of citrus and tropical fruit mostly. Some nice tropical fruit to start, a little guava interestingly, hint papaya and touch mango, all are light, with a bit more musty dank resinous notes and some passion fruit with that. Then comes a mild clementine like citrus almost orange, with a little melon too. Hops also bring more of that mild pine earthy forest floor and very characteristic earthy like Kiwi style hope note. Fair overall bitterness, and a little sticky syrupy note, with mild sweet candy malts and toasty malt. Finish is drier but a little sticky, more sticky resinous hops with more pine and earthy forest floor notes, bit more citrus and mild tropical fruit hops, quite bitter too.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bod, nice carb, decent fluffy feel.

Overall pretty nice, not what I expected. I somehow thought this would have herbs in it, like a Jade Tea, that was until I read the label and saw it was Pacific Jade hops, which makes a lot more sense, and that addition of nice Citra and Chinook which both def come through with the tropical fruits and earthy pine respectively. Decent balance, nice hops profile, pretty tasty, and even had nice carbonation and body feel to round it off. I def like this one.
