4.07/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard pint glass a hazed lighter golden with a nicely formed sticky white head atop.Citric hops like with it's big brother dominate the nose with a little floral element that I didn't get from Jade.It lacks just a little in the body but it's not thin by any means,flavors of grapefruit and some tangerine-like hops mixed with slightly grainy malt base.A solid offering,something I would drink all day if I could.

4.38/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: The cloudy golden colored liquid is capped by a nice layer of foam that leaves a curtain of lace behind

Smell: Pure pith, floral and grapefruity

Taste: Nice and grapefruity, through and through, with just a hint of the biscuit underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really enjoyable and refreshing IPA, this beer was mistakenly brewed with less malt than the regular Jade so it wound up with a lower, sessionable ABV; let's hope it becomes part of the rotation as it is that good
