L - Copper with clarity, 2 fingers of head and huge sticky lacing left all over the glass all the way down. This is how an IPA should look.

S - Huge citrus nose, dry hopped with Citra no doubt. Tangerines, oranges. Awesome aroma

T - Citrus, oranges, nectarines, perfect malt balance. Tasty as hell. I love the Jade hop, but especially the balance in this beer.

F - Medium bodied and well carbonated.

O - An amazing IPA. Glad I found this one. Definitely worth buying over and over again.

This beer had a pale yellow color and an unimpressive and boring flavor.

From 06/11/15 notes. 22 oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Floral hops, light citrus hops, wheat, earthy notes, soap, and perfume. Light body, a bit thin, low carbonation.

Overall a nice IPA, but nothing earth shattering. Worth checking out but wouldn't go nuts to obtain.

Had on tap at the Foothills brewpub. Pours a bright golden color. Nice citrus and grassy notes up front. The taste is very fruity almost like melons and is balanced with a nice bitterness. Solid drinking IPA.

Light gold coloration with just a hint of cloudiness. The head is bone white, impressive with two fingers height, retention that lasts through the entire drink leaving tight lines of foam down the glass. Ideal.

The Pacific Jade is very prominent with a very nice blend of spicy, grassy and floral overtones. Like a well hopped pilsner. Very clean. There are some red berry and tropical tones as well.

Under ripe citrus and cool melon highlight a hop profile that welcomes in more spicy and grassy flavors from the prominent NZ hop. Malt palate is clean and unassuming, red berry comes out from the yeast as the beer warms. Medium bitterness and a soapy finish.

Medium-light body, active carbonation and a very clean malt bill make for a terrific drink. I liked this one on the colder side as the malt sweetness and yeast esters begin to interfere with the harmony of the hops when warmer.

This is one impressive beer that highlights a hop that I didn't know could star in an IPA. Super clean and a delicate yet punchy hop profile, very imperial pilsner-like with a focus front and center on the hops.

Superb. Bright, crisp, west coast characters. Citrusy with a melon hinted finish.

Enjoying this from a bomber.

looks quite golden this year, last year was a bit more clear light copper. Poured a nice finger length head with comperable lace. Certainly has a distinct smell but nothing that overpowers my nose. I'm getting citrus for sure and some sweet florals.

This beer is incredibly smooth. First sip reminded me why i loved this so much last year on draft. An attempt at balancing with the malt but glad it isn't because the hops are so delicious.

Very smooth and crisp. Zero alcohol taste...Dangerous because i could drink many of these beverages.

What a great beer this is. Easy A.
