3.99/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

the store listed this @ 8.6%... just sayin...

eyes...
frothy white head of about the one finger variety, nice sticky lacing slimes the glass, slightly muddy orange hue, a slightly above average looking sort of thing...

nose...
I could smell this across the room, I am surprised no one else has said how much this smells like weed, I don't even smoke (well, not in a long ass time anyhoo), huge resin-y juicy fruit explosion that makes your mouth water, well... if you love da hops.. and I do, this is bubble gum chewy chew-ariffic, citrus notes lend a nice sour note to the mix. this is up there scent wise for DIPAs in my book, just some really strong unadulterated stuff here.. nice !

taste...
hoppy. duh... a bit of a let down compared to the aroma which was toe curling... this drinks like an extra bitter APA, the malt seems a touch lacking and this really packs a bitter punch, the grapefruit flavors try and sometimes succeed in saving this from turning bad, it manages to really kick you in the teeth with hop power but doesn't destroy your mouth with the aftertaste like many DIPAs, the carbonation is nice and crisp and definitely is a plus here, this pushes the limit of acceptable bitter...

verdict?
I dig it, not my fave but for a local ? please.. I would order this in a hot second out at the local bars, it needs just a bit more balance to be a DIPA killer but as it is ? really good and one of the best smelling beers I have run across in some time.

2nd had: Dry Hopped with Mosaic version
basically close to my above review but it seemed a bit more balanced, very enjoyable

Serving type: growler

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings at the Monmouth Mall, NJ

"Regular or tall" sez the witress. "Tall I think"sez me. What a good decision. The only worthy craft opion among the 20 or so taps at BWW.

Arrived in said tall glass looking just terrific. slightly hazy darker yellow, good carbonation and a white slightly creamy head, leaving excellent lacing.

Getting the citisy hops on the nose already, starting to salivate.

What a great beer! luscious, fruity, nice sharp tang form the hops. Goes down a treat.

Mouth was a bit over medium.

Overall, a really, really outstanding and enjoyable IPA. Lucked out a bit with this, because it wasn't actually on the menu, I found it while perusing the taps waiting for our table. When I asked the waitress what Kane beer it was, she only knew it as "Over-something". But she kept them coming, and I enjoyed 3 tall ones watching the USA/Portugal game.
