Tall can - 2/8/18

Great looking NE IPA, about medium haze, frothy and lasting cap, leaving fine fields of lace...nice

Nose and palate are awash with ripe pineapple, lime, luscious hoppy dankness, citric and resiny finish...splendid stuff

Surprisingly clear, with a slightly sandy haze, Fade to Jade has a large white foam that settles to a lumpy blanket and leaves an otherworldly amount of symmetrical spotted alien art lace.

Smell is spicy eucalyptus mint, vanilla creamed lime, lemon-orange, a hint of rug and PEZ.

A nice juicy tang splashes on the tongue, simultaneously exhibiting some spicy yeast and a hint of green dank pine. Orange-lemon Smarties rides along a medium body with a crisp froth and a dry, almost chalky chew.

This under the radar brew, while not opaque turkey stock, is a pretty spot-on New England-style IPA, in both flavor and aroma.

Pale golden ale with a slight haze, fat head of white foam, and tons of lace down the glass... Lots of pale orchard fruits on the nose, sweetened as if by honey... That continues on the taste, a blended pale fruit medley, honey-like sweetness, but very light and fluffy - whipped fruit honey? Soft and smooth, light mouthfeel... Delicious, really, with just a mild bitterness and a gentle finish...

Hazy straw yellow color, little head. Aroma is pretty much non-existent. Flavor is mostly a dry, grassy hop flavor - wholly jade, naturally - with little dimension. A little sweetness from the malt, maybe if you strain you can get some dry apricot, but it is pretty one-dimensional.

16 oz can, no date, poured into Teku glass.

L: 1F+ head, not great retention, leaves a lot of lacing and a thin cap and ring. Beer is a hazy pale gold.

S: Mixture of earthiness, malt, and some citrus. Might be a bit old.

T: Lots of earthiness, herbal character, and pineyness, with some citrus and tropical fruit trying to break through. Light cracker malts. Over the course of time, I've learned to not love Citra and Mosaic together; they seem to fight rather than complement. Amarillo comes through pretty well, though.

F: Medium bodied, light carbonation. Earthiness lingers on palate. Good construction. Balance OK.

O: Pretty good IPA.

a great juice punch initially, doesn't linger but still very very good, a fine local offering, very balanced very drinkable - i am just partial to day drifter....

Straight mosaic all over the place with a nice malty backbone. It's not NE style at all but it's a solid IPA. Nice malty caramel notes with a citrus piney resin balance.
