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.
