Poured into Heady glass from growler

L-Light copper, clear some visible carbonation, modest head with minimal retention but leaves a small white cap on top thick lacing that quickly slides down the side of the glass

S-Hop forward, grapefruit, slight pine, tropical fruits, peach, pineapple, mango, sweet caramel malts

T-grapefruit hops start the show........some tropical notes appear as it warms, picking up some of the flavors that appear in the nose, peach, mango, orange........ piney, lemon rind bitterness towards the finish...........some lingering sweetness from the caramel malts

F-leaves a slick, oily coating on the roof of the mouth, creamy with some carbonation
bite

O-very drinkable DIPA, flavor profile is to my liking with a good amount of tropical fruitiness to balance some of the citrus and pine. Alcohol is present but not in the way. Bitterness is more present in the middle and towards the finish. Enjoyable brew that I would not hesitate to get again

Poured from a 1L growler into a snifter

Appearance: light copper/ amber color. Very hazy. 1 finger white head. Nice lacing and some visible carbonation.

Smell: tropical fruit, peach, pink grapfruit juice. Some light pine and fresh cut grass

Taste: sweet tropical fruit and grapfruit. Some lemon peel And a little pine sap Nice bitterness with a slight malt backbone that just balances it perfect

Feel: medium bodied, a little creamy at first. Nice bright lingering carbination

Overall: just a very very good imperial ipa. One of my favorite beers ever. Go visit the brewery and try some of this stuff out.

Growler shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange yellow, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells wonderful, like candied grapefruit and pineapple, with some pine and grass.

This is exactly the type of IPA that I dig most. Hazy and full bodied- with tons of candied, not too sweet citrus and tropical fruit flavors- I pick up mostly grapefruit, pineapple, and orange, with some pine resin near the end. It's got a fairly bitter and lingering finish. The bitterness builds a bit with each sip. This is a really well crafted IPA. Kane knows how to f around with hops.

This is medium bodied, with a full and pillowy mouthfee, along with a moderate, appropriate level of carbonation.

My first IPA from Kane. It was bangin'.

Herbal smell and malty bitterness that doesn't sit quite well.
