Had on tap.
Pours a hazy medium orange with no head to speak of. A small amount of lacing but nothing impressive.
Very tropica citrus aroma with a hefty amount of bread as well. There is a nice floral aroma mixing in too. Very inviting and quite nice.
Lots of mango and grapefruit in the taste with more bread and biscuit. Huge deptht to the hops in this one with a very strong malt backbone for balance. Very high bitterness that leads to a dry finish that is pleasant on a beer of this strength as opposed to sweetness that is all to often present in these types of beers.
Overall, a very nice job by Foothills and a beer that I wish was more widely available.
Serving type: on-tap

4.11/5 rDev -5.1%

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint glass at Boylan Heights (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Clear honey-gold with short cap of off-white, small bubbled head with decent retention and a couple of short curtains of lacing.
S: Tropical fruit and minty, herbal hops dominate with a light caramel backing. No yeast or alcohol presence.
T: A very smooth yet complex hops flavor with mellow tropical fruit, grapefruit/lemon citrus, and pine up-front and finished with a nice earthy, resiny, herbal note, very minty in the finish. No yeast or alcohol character. A very smooth and delicious American IPA.
M: This beer is light-medium in body with lowish carbonation and a coating feel, but finishes dry. Very drinkable -- dangerously so.
O: Foothills Jade is a wonderful and unique, complex IPA with a great feel and a wide array of hop notes that blends tropical, citrus, resiny, and earthy characteristics wonderfully.
