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.

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!
