Bottle share at Proof. Pale straw in color, white head that faded to medium collar. Aroma is a light malt bill, some grassy hops. Taste is bitter, grassy, some floral hops. Odd taste. Not very enjoyable. Light to medium body and low to med carbonation.

Thanks to n2185 for the bottle. Tasted 17 March 2014!

Pours a clear bright orange golden color. Two fingers of white head, great retention and outstanding lacing. Column of bubbles rising up the center. Stellar.

Smell is fantastic. Juicy peaches, pineapple, some sweet orange, and unidentifiable tropical fruits. It's like smelling some magical tropical fruit punch. Wow.

Taste is quite good, with those fruity juicy hops coming through nicely. It's a little chalky, but that fades quickly, leaving a smooth rounded medium-low bitterness that lasts.

Feel is really really good. Clean and crisp, but punch and vibrant, too. Just the right amount of persistence, allowing those soft bitter flavors to linger right until it's time for them to go.

This is a top-notch IPA. I love the hop aromas and their presence in the taste. And there are many other things to like about it, too.

4.06/5  rDev -6.2%

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.
