Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with tangerine hues and a frothy, one finger white head that had good retention, slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing are left behind. 

Dank floral hop aroma with some oily resins and earthy grass along with pine needle, spruce tip, tropical/citrus fruit and pale malt.  Grassy pine needle character followed by mango, pineapple and grapefruit.  Some sweet malt underneath the hops with hints of caramel and toffee along with some bread and cracker.  

Full bodied with a blast of dank, earthy hops that provide the perfect amount of lingering, dry bitterness.  Crisp and refreshing with the resinous oils countered by sweeter hop notes and a pale malt backbone.  Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit and blood orange, along with some mango and pineapple.  The malt backbone is a little stronger than expected but doesn't interfere with the dank hop notes.  Some caramel and toffee flavor along with hints of bread, biscuit and graham cracker.  Very nice balance of flavors in this beer.  The hop profile is very complex and flavorful and there's just enough malt character, making this beer incredibly drinkable.

A: A cloudy orange color, with a nice frothy one finger white head at the top that leaves some nice lacing around the glass.

S: Very strong citrus notes up front, with slight hints of pine and brown sugar.

T: The taste goes hand in hand with the nose, lots of citrus up front a good bitterness from the hops, a little stickyness as well.

M: Medium bodied, tingly on the tongue from the carbonation.

O: A good IPA from Kane Brewing Co. was very surprised how good this beer tasted and very well balanced.
