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!

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.

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.

Beautiful peach colored hazy hue with a thick head and great lacing. Aromas are strong, fruity and pungent. Notes of ripe peaches, dank, citrus pulp, citrus rinds and light pine. Medium body, creamy, coating, soft and dry on the finish with a nice lingering bitterness on the palate. This is as good as an IPA can get. It was a bit green, as I drank it 3 days old, for my liking so I'll revisit the flavor score after it sits a bit.
