Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, hints of citrus. Taste is also malts up front, some citrus and herbal notes, little bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but I expected much more based on the score here.

a really tasty ipa from a brewery i have liked a lot everytime i get to drink one of their creations. this is a pretty classic ipa, dank and sticky and kind of big for a pint size serve these days, yet i also cant set the glass down and would have no problem making a night of them, although id sure be drunk! a little faint haze to this, a deeper color than is trendy right now, and a ton of hop character. pacific jade hops have been around awhile now, yet they are somehow still sort of new to me in terms of their complexion, are they expensive or hard to get? i feel like if this is how they taste, way more breweries should be using them because this beer tastes awesome! i get sliced pineapple and that preserved lemon thing i sometimes get in citra, along with cut pine and some of that northwestern high alpha pine complex as well, fresh as can be, highly dosed, and rightly bitter to balance off a rather sturdy but not too sweet crystal malt heap in the mash. smooth and fuller bodied, refreshing when ice cold and downright dynamic with the hops when it warms up a bit, more of the hop spiciness coming out. sticky like honey and sap, but still brisk as i drink it, fermented mostly dry but without any ale yeast flavor. a really well made beer with a great hop profile. more pacific jade centered beer needs to emerge...

Excellent yellow gold color and 1/2 of foam in a tulip glass. Smell was about what I expected for an IPA but the taste was very refreshing; not bitter and very satisfying. I will get this again!
