Not the bitterest IPA on the block
I made this kit recently and am pleased with the result. The raw Pacific Jade hops are fruity and floral and unlike any hop I've ever used. The final product was a solid IPA with moderate bitterness and some interesting fruity/grassy notes that become more noticeable as it warms up. This is a kit I would make again.

I'm a big fan of hops from New Zealand, they have a great aroma to them. This beer has a nice citrus note to it. I didn't detect any pepper in my brew though. Nice mellow hop flavor, and enough ABV to wash away any ambitions you might have for the day.

Wow
Very nice hop flavor, as some have said it's not the citrus you'd expect, it definitely has and earthy (? I think that's the word I want) flavor to it. I used a yeast nutrient with mine and was easily able to boost the abv to 7.8%. A great beer to sit on the porch with a cigar with. I will say if I did it again (I'd build the recipe myself) I'd substitute in some citra hops, as that was the flavor I was really hoping for. Nothing against the kit, it's got great flavor out of the box. I'd get this again in the future for something different.

I like New Zealand hops, so I HAD to try this kit. It did not disappoint. Very good hop flavor with a nice malty finish.

delightfully hoppy
This is an awesome, hoppy beer! My husband likes his beers hoppy and this one fit the bill! It doesn't have quite the same bite as the Ferocious (awesome Surly Furious copycat) but has a nice depth to it. If you like your beers hoppy you won't be disappointed by this one!

Jade Hops Worth a Try
Gradually working my way through the array of IPAs, I decided to try this IPA for the singular Jade hops. Though tinkering with recipes is fun, I followed directions with this one. Being brave, we had an initial tasting the day after Christmas with a mixed crowd of family and friends. Though it didn't have the "slap in the face" flavor of some IPA's, it was subtle and smooth, with lots of floral, citrus flavors. A good choice with many foods. Cheers!

ALL RIGHT
I gave my "test bottle" a taste. I "bottle age" for 8 weeks. I would say this beer will be very interested at the end of the 8 weeks. Nice color, aroma from the hops plus the dry hopping. So far waiting for damn good IPA.
