look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Have tried a few beers from this new-to-me flashily-canned Indiana brewery, now ol Jade is getting a review. Label states that it's brewed with oats, crystal rye and Pacific Jade hops.

A - 12oz pour to a pint glass is hazy darkish orange with a tall white head. Good retention as a splotchy cap and thick ring, good lace as well.

S - Nice citrus, particularly orange and grapefruit, herbal and spicy hops, some light cereal and caramel.

T - Grapefruit, rye spice, clementine, earthy grass, oats, cereal and a touch of caramel. Though great, doesn't feel quite as solid as the nose.

M - Pretty full-bodied, highish bitterness and medium bitterness. Malts/oats make themselves known but this is mostly a hop party. Average drinkability.

O - A nice hop-forward pale ale, the oats are a cool unique touch, rye comes through nicely mingling with citrus earth galore.

I love this beer, but it has to be drank fresh unfortunately. You get a lot of changes as it ages. Don't sit in it too long.

3.86/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Muddled and murky, dark orange. This looks like a darker orange juice without pulp. The head is a pillow and puffy off white. Nice legging and lace. The head looks unrefined with multiple bubble sizes. This looks raw.
Smell: Tang and candied orange. Maybe orange Pez. I can smell sugar.
Taste: Sweet orange, some hops, some malt, and some pine. A little tangy. I was expecting a sweet, sugary aftertaste. I was let down :)
Feel: For me, this has the consistency of pulp free orange juice. Thicker, substantial body. Lower carbonation.

Overall - The taste is a little off for me, all the blocks do not fit. However, this isn't far off from having all of the pieces fit the puzzle. I am sure with a few tweaks, this will be turn out much, much better.

Picked up a couple 12oz cans in a trade with awdturboiv. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass. Pours an unfiltered apricot hue, thin white head dissipates quickly, residual lacing. Bready malt, earthy citrus hop aroma - super fresh! Great balance of flavors that follow the nose, the oats add a nice malt layer, really interesting hop profile as well - super fresh! Unfortunately there are carbonation issues with this one - nearly flat which is a bummer - oats beef up the body and give it a silky mouthfeel but the carbonation is difficult to overlook. Overall a great concept and extremely tasty with a wonderful aroma. Just wished they had nailed the carbonation (both cans had issues).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a golden amber color which is slightly hazy with a cream colored 2 finger head. Beautiful spiderweb lacing.

S. Bready and biscuit malts with some mango and pineapple hop aroma

T. Backing up the nose there is some nice bready malts with some mango and almost banana like hop flavor. Slight pine. Sought bitterness. Grassy out green leaf vegetable aftertaste.

M. Medium bodied. But little carbonation. Could use some more of that. Finishes mostly clean.

O. A nice IPA. Good aroma and flavor. Looks nice. I'd like a little more carbonation. But so in all I would drink again.
