From tap. Pours deep golden with slight haze. Wow! the aroma was all floral and citrus with a slight sweetness to it. Taste followed in a balanced way with sweet caramel malts to balance the mild hoppiness. This was great and reminded me of fresh grapefruit and green freshness!!!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden with just a touch of amber. Massive full head with excellent lacing that lasts. Very nice nose of citrus hops - grapefruit, orange and tropical notes of pineapple coupled with mango - over a slightly sweet caramel note. In the background, a hint of pine is also detected. Light medium body with an almost smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation level. The exceptional flavor profile is well balanced with hop flavor, light bitterness and sweetness. It begins with the citrus and tropical hop flavor profile of the nose, progresses to light bitterness with a peppery note and ends with a nice caramel sweetness. The finish effervesces into a mix of the full flavor profile leaving a slight citric tartness over a peppery bitterness. Exceptional seems a bit of an understatement for this world class ale.

Hazy pale color. White fluffy head. Very aromatic. Reminds me of an all day IPA or a dry hopped beer. Tasty. Better than hoppyum. Very bitter yet refreshing.

this beer is awesome. its pale color belies the complexity of the flavors. the aroma gives away most of them. very green and floral in the aroma and taste. i just think it nailed my favorite parts of hops. there is bitterness, but what i love about hops is the fresh "green-ness" that they can contribute. Love Love Love this one.

An awesome IPA. Have a had on draft (at the brewery and at other bars). Appearance is golden hazy, perhaps itís unfiltered. Citrus, pine, and lemon on the nose. Super fresh and hoppy. Similar to a Bells Two Hearted (I think they do use some Centennial hops in this one in addition to the Jade hops), but not as orangey sweet. One of the more unique tasting IPAís instead of the standard Cascade/Centennial variety. At 7.4%, you do not taste any alcohol at all. Very crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking.

Draft. Pours a hazy paler gold with a thin eggshell head that leaves a killer wall of lace. Nose is a pungent hop garden: big pine and tropical fruit, lilac, citrus, with some biscuity malt and doughy yeast. Fairly sweet, but hugely bitter. Lighter side of medium bodied, oily, crisp, with a huge hoppy bitter finish. Amazing, seems extremely fresh with those huge hop notes. Reminds me of Shorts Huma Lupa Licious, but with an added hop dimension Iím guessing is from the Jade. Awesome flavor.

22 oz bomber into a tulip. Thanks Chris! Pours a clear straw yellow with crazy lacing. Nose is peaches, pine, and light caramel. Taste is a wonderful peachy hoppiness with only a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking with no hint of the high abv. Delicious!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally reviewed: 2/7/11. Came out a clear dark orange/gold. This is a little more pale than I expected. A small white head caps it off, but this leaves lots of sticky lacy rings on the glass. The aroma on this beer is nothing short of amazing. Very powerful scents of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, mango. Total citrus bomb! Slight peppery finish. I could smell this all freaking day. Perfect.
Nice mellow depth, with a crisp finish. The bubbles play lightly on the palate. This is a hop headís IPA for sure. Big bitterness all the way through, but more than that, the hops are juicy and full of flavor. Citrus tones lead the way, mild sweetness in the middle, but this is fleeting. Oily at times, but dries me out on the back end. It then finishes how it started: bitter. Great IPA that hit the spot.
