this is a re-review.

I had it in a bottle and didn't think much of it.

Had it on tap and thought it was an excellent balanced citrusy ipa. Enjoyed it much more on tap.

Pours a medium clear gold with moderately thick white head. The head has light retention and leave small sticky lacing. The aroma is light with tropical fruit and pine notes. The taste is about the same. The body is lighter but not watery and easy drinking.

Jade pours a bronze color with a nice big head. There is a mild hoppy aroma. There is a nice sweet crisp malt backbone, with good floral hop flavors. Not over powering and easy to drink. Overall its a very nice drinkable and flavorful IPA.
