I had this on tap today at Foothills. I was looking forward to it after reading all the positive reviews.
This arrived with virtually no head. There was a slight citrus aroma on this amber IPA.
I would not characterize the taste as very hop forward. You could taste the hops but I've had more aggressive hop taste from DFH and Smuttynose bottle pours. I just didn't find what I was hoping for from this IPA. I have had the Hoptimum from Foothills and found it more to my liking.
Again, this is not a bad beer but it did not measure up to my expectations.

I had this on tap at the brewery at the same time I sampled the "Seeing Double". The appearance was a little weak, no head to speak of, no lacing, a light yellow in color. The first thing noticed is the grapefruit. The aroma hit me before the pint was set down. The taste is more of the same, pure grapefruit, it's all I could detect. A little acidic for my liking. It was very refreshing, but I think one is all I could drink in succession. A far cry from Seeing Double, although they are not really in the same class. Prost!

Thanks to LGB362 for dropping a load on my steps yesterday, this anticipated brew among them. 22 oz. bottle, nice artwork, no evident bottle date, split with my wife.
The pour is dark yellow with plenty of carbonation, pretty opaque. Nose is subtle or, if we're being uncharitable, surprisingly weak: mango, spare tropical breeze, & what might be pale malts.
Jade is like the rum punch of IPAs. Tropical islands really comes out in the taste, but it's nearly outshone by an almost rye-like spiciness that comes on just as hot. Mild dankness & a citrus touch that nearly tips into something a cat might expel onto the carpet; heard it described so often & never really experienced it until now. Finish is a honeybee sweetness with a moderate bitterness that swells as the beer warms until it really sticks to the lingual frenum. Very sticky in the mouth & now that I think about it, there is pine in here, too. Super easy to drink.
It is what it is: a very good beer that is wickedly easy to slug.

Pint draft at Foothills brewery in Winston Salem NC Cost $5
A: Poured a murky golden color with lots of sediment. Decent white head that left a fair amount of lacing.
S: Strong floral and citrus hops.
T: Lots of hops, good hops, large distinction of grassy, citrusy, and floral hops. Nice malt character to balance it out.
M: Nice mouthfeel, not super bitter, and goes down easy.
O: Pretty good. I would definitely drink again, this is a step up from their other IPAs.
