About as good as an IPA can be. A good representative of the "East Coast" style. Heady, sharp taste; nice aroma; good texture and flavor. Beautiful amber color. Always a favorite in a growler to share with family and friends. Especially enjoy in a tulip glass or one of the new IPA glasses I'm expecting from Santa!

Had on tap at the brewery
A: hazy deep golden with very little head and a bit of spotty white lace
S: pine, floral, citrus rind, slight musty, earthy/dirt
T: hop resin up front, floral and pine with a bitter punch and sweet malt profile. First sip a bit punchy but tasting very good as it warms
M: fairly heavy body for style, bitter finish with flavors lingering.

Overall Very solid DIPA that is a great flagship beer for the brewery. I enjoyed the head high IPA a bit more with the grapefruit notes

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 .
