MF: crisp and clean with the perfect residual lingering taste
O: It is hard to take a great beer like Head High better. Somehow Kane has managed to do just that with this galaxy version.

Recently offered in 16.9 oz bottles. WHOO HOO! Poured into Aslin Teku glass.

L: 2F+ foamy head with good retention, lacing, and a cap/ring. Beer is an attractive hazy golden orange.

S: Superdose of Galaxy leads to strong grapefruit, orange, passionfruit, lemon peel scent. Augments the existing hop profiles. Dank pineyness as well.

T: Lots of citrus up front as in nose. Grapefruit, orange dominate. Light pilsner and crystal malts take you to a slightly bitter dank piney finish.

F: Medium body, light to medium carbonation. Very solid construction and balance the entire way.

O: A slight plus compared with regular Head High (I drank them side by side to compare). They have it on tap now, I believe, and grab if they ever bottle it again.

A- Absolutely gorgeous hazy glowing orange color with a plume of tight white head that leaves tons of lacing!

S- This explodes from the glass with tropical fruit and citrus! Passion fruit at the forefront, with mango, papaya, grapefruit, and mandarin orange following. Also some nice peach notes. Just fantastic!

T- The flavor is more of the same from the aroma, with passion fruit leading the way! So incredibly juicy! Mango and peach are the secondary flavors, and it finishes with just the right touch of bitterness.

M- The mouth feel is medium with perfect carbonation, and it finishes dry with a mild bitterness that keeps you coming back for more!

O- I'd put this IPA up against any of the heavy hitters out there, and I think in a blind taste test it would win most of the time! Just an absolute gem of a beer!
