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!

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with pineapple colored edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Good retention, slowly settling with streaks of soapy lacing left clinging to the glass on its way down.

Dank, uber fresh hop aroma with resinous oils, pine needle, fresh cut grass and juicy tropical/citrus fruit sweetness. Very floral with really nice grassy, earthy notes countered by luscious pineapple, grapefruit, melon and lemon pith. Very dank with kind bud, floral hop leaf, soily gras. Pale biscuit malt backbone with bread and grainy cracker. Smells great.

Full body with a blast of dank, sticky hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a slightly sweet, bone dry finish. There's a really great balance of earthy bitterness, tropical fruit and pale malt. Floral with grassy pine and sticky, resinous oils countered by prominent citrus/tropical fruit sweetness. Juicy pineapple and mango along with ruby red grapefruit, melon and orange peel. Pale malt backbone with biscuit and cracker providing balance without interfering with the dank, juicy hops. Perfectly balanced and dangerously crushable. Excellent!

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle
A: Hazy straw colored with a thick foamy head. Tons of lacing
S: citrus and dankness
T: Grapefruit orange candied lime with pine and bitters
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.
