The 750mL bottle that houses Jade IPA has a cool film noire look. The beer within contains 7.4% alcohol and a burly 86 IBUs. It's an almost clear golden ale that pours with a thick and creamy head. It has a juicy, tropical nose--mango and papaya, as well as some tart grapefruit. That fruitiness powers the flavour too, but backed by some serious hops goodness.
Juicy and tasty, Jade IPA is a beaut from Winston-Salem, North Carolina's Foothills Brewing. I'd gladly murder another of these animals any day of the week. Only complaint is that it's a bit thin for a strong ale.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
