Poured on tap into a shaker pint.
Half a finger of off white head presented, kind of sudsy. Hazy murky body a bit, yellow but with light brown through most of it. Lemon body on the bottom with murky brown up top. Virtually no visible carbonation, minimal lacing.
Aroma and bouquet just jumps and explodes. Ripping juicy melon and cantalope. Hop tropics seem to sneak in, with a matching light sweetness and juicy quality. I am in love.
Palate has a very noticeable and unexpected carbonation. It distracts just a little. Sweet melon matching palate, with hop bursting woody resin. Coating. Mild tropics with lingering mellow fruit that goes on forever. Honey light action that goes on forever, with a lip smacking coating.
Overall a stupid good ipa that is bigger than most DIPAs I've had, and really is memorable..
Serving type: on-tap

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.
