4/5  rDev -6.5%

Re-reviewed after having a fresh pint on tap

Appearance: Dark golden orange with a good white head, good lacing

Smell: Piney and resinous, some floral notes.

Taste: Earthy hops, bitterness, Citrusy hops, caramel bready malts. Well balanced

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Outstanding this time. A good local treat. Not sure why I didn't really like it so much the first time around, but this was fantastic this time. Reinforces the fact that Kane is a local brewery to watch.

On tap at Court Jester in Matawan.

Clear golden color. Half a finger of head, tight bubbles with good lacing.

Strong hop profile up front. Some pine is in there and maybe some orange peel on the tail end.

A hophead's dream. Complex combination of bittering hops that's tough to pinpoint. I get pine, grapefruit, and lots of spice. Aftertaste is lemony. Really nice.

Medium carbonation.

A real winner here. I, for once, am proud of a New Jersey beer! Not saying NJ beer is bad, but is usually doesn't quite stack up. Head High does stack up to the best of em.

Had it on tap at a birthday dinner. Asked waitress what kind of craft beer do you have? her response told me i'd be better off looking for myself. ok, no problem seeing is believing. Saw kane on tap and came back . others ordering drinks -wine -coors light-coors light-mojito= coors light i'm laughing at these beer drinkers and order a kane ipa. drinks come. Still laughing at the'' beer drinkers'' . sip sip I finally said anyone want to try some real beer? response was wow that's strong. wow that's different .wow whats that taste . I said that's beer, not beer water. oh I couldn't have more than 1 of those one said. this place just went on the map again.

usually drink darker styles, but couldn't pass up the kanes. loved the hoppy fruity taste and each sip was like a treat. a cant miss choice.
