A big thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, citrus, malts. Taste is well balanced malts and hops, citrus, some hints of mint. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer. (318 characters)

Poured from a can into my oversized brandy snifter. A reasonable pour gets a reasonable inch of light beige head, thick and foamy. Body is deep golden in color, almost honey like. Nose is full of resiny citrus hops and soft sweet malt notes the intertwine very well. The first sip brings juicy hops almost like bitting into a piece of mandarin orange. The malts give a just right kind of feel to the backbone and slight sweetness to this brew. I just can't get over how juicy this beer is. Off the charts drinkability and mouthfeel. Truely lovely. (554 characters)

I have to admit to a fair amount of incredulity upon hearing that a) there is a brewery in Gary, IN and b) that it is making some great beers. I took time during my recent visit to Chicago to make the trip down and over and I was not disappointed! I got a couple of their CANs to add to The CANQuest (tm) and I would be interested in acquiring more.

From the CAN: "Unfiltered, Sediment May Occur. Fresh Is Best, Do Not Cellar."; "18th Street Brewery presents: Jade: Ameri[CAN] Pale Ale: Brewed with Oats, Crystal Rye and Pacific Jade hops."; "[CAN] Art by: Joey Potts".

If the CAN cops to the unfiltered possibility of sediment, then you CAN bet that an inverted Glug is off the table. Instead, following a loud Crack!, I went with a gentle Glug so as not to rouse any lees. Wow! It was brimful, so I really had to be mindful of my pour. I still managed a finger of foamy, tawny head with moderate retention. Color was Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with button brightness. Unfiltered?!? CAN't prove it by me. The nose had an earthiness to go along with a minty, evergreen scent and my hophead mouth was watering. Mouthfeel was medium. The hops were understated in the mouth and on the tongue, not quite as pronounced as on the nose, but the rye gave it a spicy bite that was really good. Finish was dry, tangy, earthy and with just enough inherent bitterness to make me a happy man. I really want to try some more of their CANs! (1,423 characters)
