UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 12oz bottle poured in Pint glass. Hazy golden color with light head and thin lacings Aroma is piney and citrus. Taste of Lemon and grapefruit with hint of grassiness. Upfront hops with lingering bitterness. Medium body and mouth feel. This beer surprised me how good it is. I can’t wait to have it on draft next time in the Carolinas. tillmac62 (768) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.

On draft at Krafty Draft in Lexington, SC. Smells yummy, lovely golden color. Light bodied. Unique hoppy flavor from the jade hops. Kinda lightly sweet, almost fruity.

Slightly cloudy yellow with good head when properly agitated. Restaurant! Hidden tangerine finish behind a nice aroma. Sweet hops I assume jade. Never had jade before but yum! Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2012
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.
