3.65/5 rDev -14.9%
Semi hazy Orange glow with a thin white head. Can already tell the lacing is amazing.
Piney and grapefruit hop resin on the nose with a touch of citrus. Some floral notes with a faint scent of caramel. Incredibly smooth.
Slick rounded mouthfeel. Full bodied. Sweet caramel and pale malt up front rides through along the sides of the tongue into a giant grapefruit and piney hop bomb. Undertones of other citrus fruit. Assertive hop bitterness balances the sweetness of the malt. Throat clearing and soothing bitterness. Big long finish. Hop resin lingers on the back of the tongue.
Not complex in the least but one of the smoothest dipas I've ever had. Standard but well put together flavors.

I'm going to cut to the chase. I'm not a huge IPA guy but I know a fresh IPA when I taste 1. This wasn't that fresh. Real nice floral citrus on the nose and up front on the tongue. Battery acid about 2 sec after I swallowed it. Wish I had asked how long it had been on tap because I don't think this was a fair tasting but there was enough to like that I'll look for it again, if fresh.

Picked up a growler earlier today from the brewery. The beer pours a burnt orange amber with a significant ecru colored head that leaves thick gobs of lacing as I empty my glass. Smells of plenty of citrus fruit including orange and grapefruit. Nice background of mango and passion fruit. This gives the impression of an interesting balance between the old school citrus and pine American IPA and new school that is heavy on tropical fruit.
The flavor is slightly less complex than the scent. A very forward bitterness at the start that gives way to a bready malt background. Finishes with a string bitterness with a good citrus forward flavor. Mouthfeel is full with lively carbonation. Finishes with a slight warming alcohol presence.
Altogether a very good beer and IPA, but lacks some finesse that Kane has shown in some of their other beers. As a side note, their barrel aged version is much more well rounded and enjoyable in my opinion. Bringing together some of the disparate elements of this version.
