Foothills Brewing Jade IPA

What the brewers say

“Bold, citrusy Pacific Jade hops lend striking tropical fruit notes and a hint of peppery finish to this easy-drinking IPA. Dry hop additions of Chinook and Citra add heady aroma and bold flavor.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Citrus, orange, nice juicy fruit notes with biscuit sweetness. Lemon, thyme, pine, and a faint grainy sweetness. Floral honey.”

Flavor: “Intriguing sweetness and juicy fruit character in this beer. Nice citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and lemon. The bitterness is measured with the malt and hops sweetness for a delicate, delightful malt backbone. Floral honey and lime citrus notes up front—a very different profile than what we have had so far. Almost a light acidic note with a touch of salt reminiscent of a gose. Dry aftertaste with medium bitterness that intertwines with that acidity.”

Overall: “A very enjoyable IPA—fruity, juicy, and avorful. Spritzy, playful, and fun. It delights the senses while remaining drinkable. Big citrus notes with lemon and lime with a slight acidic note that is complementary not distracting. Unique combo of citrus and acidity helps it stand out in a crowded field.”
