When I reviewed Head High IPA I exclaimed that it was the best beer brewed in New Jersey and I was right, at the time. This DIPA from Kane Brewing has knocked it off its pedestal for me.

I had this at a Meet the Brewer event at the Taphouse Grille in Wayne, NJ. So I got to talk to Mike Kane about this one. He confirmed that the hopping is a little different and that explains the fact that, while it smells quite a bit like Head High, it's got a bit more of a grapefruit kick to it. That's thanks to some Simcoe (my favorite!) and Amarillo hops.

The ABV is higher, but with the bitterness up there, it wouldn't be all that sessionable anyway. After two of these my palate begged for mercy but didn't complain at all when I had a third.

Kane still manages to impress me with everything they produce and I can't wait for something Mike said might be out in October. (877 characters)
