Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with pineapple colored edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Good retention, slowly settling with streaks of soapy lacing left clinging to the glass on its way down.

Dank, uber fresh hop aroma with resinous oils, pine needle, fresh cut grass and juicy tropical/citrus fruit sweetness. Very floral with really nice grassy, earthy notes countered by luscious pineapple, grapefruit, melon and lemon pith. Very dank with kind bud, floral hop leaf, soily gras. Pale biscuit malt backbone with bread and grainy cracker. Smells great.

Full body with a blast of dank, sticky hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a slightly sweet, bone dry finish. There's a really great balance of earthy bitterness, tropical fruit and pale malt. Floral with grassy pine and sticky, resinous oils countered by prominent citrus/tropical fruit sweetness. Juicy pineapple and mango along with ruby red grapefruit, melon and orange peel. Pale malt backbone with biscuit and cracker providing balance without interfering with the dank, juicy hops. Perfectly balanced and dangerously crushable. Excellent!

Growler from Joe Canals. Pours thick and creamy into my pint glass. Big, fluffy head. Smells nice, hoppy citrus. The taste is where it really stands out. Big, super hoppy citrus bomb of an IPA. Rich, creamy, juicy. This is the perfect hoppy IPA. I love Kane and, since they don't bottle sixers or four packs, I'm happy to make them a regular growler fill. cheers!

growler from the brewery poured into tulip - thanks Wiid!

Pours a hazed golden color with some brighter orange hues. Fluffy white head rests on top, retaining for a while and leaving rings and patches of lacing on the glass.

Lovely nose chock full of explosive, juicy citrus aromas. Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, and apricot all create a cocktail of hop flavor. Some notes of light bready malt along with some fruit driven sweetness.

Nicely bitter up front with a plethora of citrus flavors. Some pith and rind from the grapefruit, but the apricot and pineapple really come through well. Slightly sweet, but still really bitter on the tongue. Lighter malt backbone provides some support and sweetness with a touch of syrupy caramel. Finishes with a building dryness that wraps around the tongue.

Medium body, decent carbonation, dry and lingering on the palate. I really liked Head High, and this Galaxy dry hopped version takes the base beer to another level. I can't wait to see what's next from these guys.
