Thanks to The Terminator, SadMachine, for this 500ML bottle.

Pour is that trendy light orange that makes me think of those old Anita Bryant commercials…which only reminds me just hold old I am. Citrus, tropical fruit, soaked sweet bread comes off the surface. Acceptable.

Head High - Galaxy is a versatile beer. I could see myself slugging this after a sweaty bout of gardening or sipping it out of a wine glass over a leisurely ninety minutes. Much citrus, some orange juice (from concentrate), mild honeyed malts, moderate bitterness. Bit of flowers & touch of Fat Tire-style wet bread, though not enough to ruin the experience. Nicely juicy, & drinkable enough to warrant the 12 oz. bottle that’s hit the gym.

A bit of an upgrade from the standard, very good Head High, but not so much as you’d notice if they weren’t both in your mouth simultaneously. Thoroughly enjoying this; an excellent beer.

Growler from Joe Canals. Pours thick and creamy into my pint glass. Big, fluffy head. Smells nice, hoppy citrus. The taste is where it really stands out. Big, super hoppy citrus bomb of an IPA. Rich, creamy, juicy. This is the perfect hoppy IPA. I love Kane and, since they don't bottle sixers or four packs, I'm happy to make them a regular growler fill. cheers!
