4.48/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a thin head perhed on the hazy amber liquid; a fair amount of lacing action

Smell: Tropical fruit explosion led by pineapple; sweet malt underneath

Taste: Sugary malt, up front, but the hops come to the rescue quickly, bringing pineapple, grapefruit and apricot flavors; the fruit and the bitterness meld together nicely in the finish, keeping the sweetness almost in check

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Although this verges on being too sweet, it is a DIPA and, as such, handles the balance effectively; another top notch beer from a brewery that knows how to make an IPA

First had: on tap at Brickwall Tavern, Asbury Park, NJ

Well this was a pleasant surprise. Very nice IPA here! Slightly hazy golden-amber color with a well-retaining white head that left layers of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of fresh hops, citrus and tropical fruit, underlying biscuity malt sweetness. More of the same in the taste, fresh and crisp with citrus hops, tropical fruits, pine needles, good balance of bitterness and biscuity malt sweetness, higher ABV was well-hidden. Medium body, and quite enjoyable, enough for me to go back for seconds. My first beer from Kane, and hopefully not my last.

From 07/27/13 notes. Had on tap at the brewery.

a - Pours a clear bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Some light lacing left on the glass.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, citrus hops, pineapples, floral hops, honey, spice, and earthy notes. Nice and hoppy, great nose.

t - Tastes of super fresh tropical fruits, fresh citrus hops, grapefruit, oranges, lemons, pine apples, floral hops, fruity malts, and some earthy notes. Some light bitterness and a ton fo fresh hops. Awesome taste, better than the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Moderate bitterness in the taste.

o - Overall a fantastic DIPA. Tried this with their Head High IPA and liked the nose better on Head High, while liking the taste of this better. A bigger, stronger version of Head High, if you like DIPA's with a little bit of bitterness in the taste this is for you. If you want an easier drinking IPA with no bitterness, I'd recommend Head High, but both are great.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a slightly hazy, burnt golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy off-white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Floral, citrus hop aroma with resinous oil and earthy pine along with tropical/citrus fruit notes and a cracker-y pale malt backbone. Earthy and grassy with pine needle and spruce tip followed by blood orange, mango, pineapple and grapefruit.  Pale biscuit malt backbone wih subtle toffee, caramel and cracker character.  Smells pretty good.

Medium bodied with a blast dank hop bitterness that is immediately countered by sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes and a decent malt backbone.   Dry, bitter and earthy with resinous oils, pine needle, spruce tip and kind bud followed by mango, orange peel and grapefruit.  The latter gives this beer some much needed sweetness which is a perfect compliment to the earhy bitterness.  Underneath, there is a decent malt backbone with hints of caramel, toffee and cracker, providing balance without interfering or hindering the hop flavor.  Subtle boozy sweetness toward the end of the palate but the ABV is very well masked with little to no heat.  The sweeter flavors linger throughout but it still has a crisp, dry finish.  This is a very flavorful beer that has great balance making it extremely drinkable.  It's the first beer I've tried from Kane and I'm very impressed .

Served on tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a very lightly hazy golden orange in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and just a touch of deeper orange highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall thin white head that slowly reduces to a a small to medium patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There are light to moderate amounts of caramel malt sweetness with stronger aromas of tropical/pineapple, grapefruit/citrus, and pine hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate amounts of malts with some caramel sweetness. On top of the malts, there is a strong flavor of hops - citrus/orange zest,

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky with just a touch of dryness in the finish.

O: This is an enjoyable beer but just a bit too sweet for my tastes in the DIPA style - I would definitely get another of these if I came across it again.

on tap at the brewery

Pours a hazed golden orange color with a crop of white head. Retains well, leaving sticky, patchy lacing on the glass.

Intense citrus nose with relentless pine hop bitterness. Grapefruit and pineapple with some underlying sweetness. Biscuit, bread crust and caramel with a spike of boozy warmth.

Crushing hoppy bitterness on the tongue, jammed with a citrus bonanza of grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Some sticky pine tones lurk throughout the continued bitterness. Sizable malt backbone with bread, biscuit and caramel. Fairly sweet on the back end, but the sticky, bitter hops linger on the tongue with dryness and warmth.

Medium body, well carbonated, sticky, dry and lingering on the tongue. Another well crafted, hopped up brew from Kane that I keep coming back to whenever it's available.
