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.

A- pours a slightly pale golden hue, thin lacing and had maybe a quarter inch head which subsided after a few minutes.

S- a light and sweet ell, this beer reminds me if sugar and grapefruit combined. It's a pretty complex smell, honestly.

T- this has a complex tropical taste with a malty hint at the front and a great bitter hop end. Grapefruit is present the whole way through. It has a dank and hoppy flavor to it. It definitely has floral and grassy notes in there as well. Malty and hoppy finish.

M- medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation to it. It leaves just the right amount of bitterness to it at the end.

Overall- this beer is AMAZING. plain and simple. Easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had. It has a great taste, smell, and aftertaste. Carbonation and the body is on point. This has everything I want in an IPA and MORE.
