This IPA, from a local Winston-Salem Brewery, is one of the best IPA's on the market in my opinion. The Taste is hoppy, slightly bitter but refreshing & it feels great on the tongue. Even though the ABV is slightly high, it does not have an overpowering flavor of alcohol and is very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle of Jade IPA cooled to about 55 F (Foothills brewing; 7.4% alcohol) drunk September, 2017. Deep amber body with moderate head and some lacing. Aroma not pronounced.

The main event for this ale is the flavor. It has a big, deep integrated hoppy flavor with a fine malt body. Extremely drinkable. There is no hint of the hefty alcohol in the flavor. This is a standout ale.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an IPA glass

This beer pours a hazy amber color with golden highlights. It is topped with an inch of tan head that never quite goes away leaving rings of lacing.

I smell citrus as soon as I crack it open. Once decanted I get the citrus as well as a healthy dose of bready malt.

It starts out with citrus. I get some malt through the middle and just when I think that it is evening out some pine kicks in the finish leaving a bitter aftertaste.

It has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

A solid IPA. I loved the mouthfeel.

Pours very clear like apple juice. I can't remember the last time I poured an IPA so clear. The nose is deep in thick hops as is the taste. This beer is crisp and clean with a very quick ending finish.
