Foothills Brewing Jade IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Foothills Brewing Jade IPA. I picked this bottle up at Stella Brew (here) in Winston-Salem, NC. They have an excellent selection and we’re very helpful helping me pick out some local “must have” beers to bring home. If you find yourself in the area stop in, buy some beverages and tell them that Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Foothills Brewing website: “Jade. Exotic jewel of the orient. Now a gem of an IPA. 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. A special beer to charm the hop lover in you. Go ahead. Get Jaded.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear pale golden color with a huge white head leaving good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, pine and tropical hop scents with slight caramel and honey scents.
Taste: Tropical, citrus, pine, biscuit, honey and some sweet caramel malts.
Overall: Crisp and clean, Foothills Brewing Jade IPA is solid. This 7.4% ABV offering is quite drinkable and delicious. Well worth trying!
