Pours a slightly hazy golden with copper highlights and a frothy cream head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam and leaves sheets of lacing.

Grapefruit and resin dominate the aroma, with tropical notes adding complexity.

Flavor reveals a lightly toasted malt base that accompanies the grapefruit underpinnings nicely. Notes of lemon and mango add complexity. The finish is moderately bitter. Malt actually plays a factor in this, which I enjoy.

Body is a touch on the light side, if anything, though that may be accentuated by the high carbonation. Alcohol warmth is noted.

I like the malt presence in this one, and the flavor and bittering hops are almost at an even keel.

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.
