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. swiftsoles (19) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2013
An awesome IPA. Have a had on draft (at the brewery and at other bars). Appearance is golden hazy, perhaps it’s 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 IPA’s instead of the standard Cascade/Centennial variety. At 7.4%, you do not taste any alcohol at all. Very crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. 574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2013
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 I’m guessing is from the Jade. Awesome flavor. coyforce (684) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Great Pour. Golden yellow with a light white head. Flavor is hoppy and a nice aftertaste. drpimento (3576) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Kind of an average appearance but really good reefer like aroma and flavor hop characteristics. Barely dry with a good bitter finish.

So smooth. Easy drinking IPA. I only wish you could find it in more places.

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! Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of tropical fruit, light grapefruity too. Flavor similar, mild bitterness, popping fruit and very clean. Great stuff. Not sire what made os supposed to be like though? rajendra82 (1078) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2016
The beer poured with a clear body that was golden amber in color. The head was one finger thick. The classic looks were accompanied by a classic smell of citric American hops, highlighting grapefruit and tangerine. The taste was very citric as well, with some lemon showing up in addition to the grapefruit and tangerine mentioned before. The finish was very dry and had a hint of spice in it, and the aftertaste was very drawn out. The beer felt medium dense in texture, and the alcohol content was well hidden. This was a very classy IPA, even though it was not very bitter. knickskicks (1162) - - MAR 12, 2014
Golden, frothy white head. Nose is pine, tropical fruits, citra hops. Taste is tropical fruit, past-ripe mango, some pepper. Nice oily mouthfeel.
