Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Overhead is an American-style Imperial IPA. This beer is loaded with our favorite hops; Amarillo, Columbus, Centennial and Simcoe. It’s bittered with a gigantic charge of Columbus and Simcoe early in the kettle that is followed by several rounds of late kettle and whirlpool hops using Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe. In the end, Overhead is brewed with over 5 pounds of hops per barrel which includes two rounds of dry hopping to create a cascade of pine, resin and citrus hop flavors that consume your palate. Although we brew Overhead with the same imported Pilsner and light crystal malts as Head High and ferment it with our house ale strain to produce a dry crisp finish, this blend of different hops creates an entirely new experience all its own.

Another great DIPA from NJ! Gotta love it. Kane knows how to use the hops I can't wait to see this beer in cans. Can't wait to see the hype then.

Had this beer most recently at Dinosaur BBQ in Newark. This is a perfect DIPA. I have had heady, hop slam, and sucks in large quantities recently and this beer is every bit their equal. Only complaint is why can the good folks at Kane not bottle this stuff??? Absolutely world class!

About as good as an IPA can be. A good representative of the "East Coast" style. Heady, sharp taste; nice aroma; good texture and flavor. Beautiful amber color. Always a favorite in a growler to share with family and friends. Especially enjoy in a tulip glass or one of the new IPA glasses I'm expecting from Santa!

Poured from a half growler into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass.

Appearance: Beautiful golden yellow Two finger head, and great lacing. A steady stream of carbonation can be seen up the middle.
Smell: Hoppy goodness. Plenty of Grapefruit, pineapple and, in the background, pine.
Taste: Just like the aroma. Grapefruit and pineapple up front. A subtle pine follows up the fruit.
Mouthfeel: Great carbonation. The flavors linger with the fruit fading first and the pine staying through the finish.
Overall: This is a top tier DIPA. It is beautifully constructed and can more than hang with any of the big boys. If you get a chance to try this, do not pass it up.

My favorite IPA, hands down! Linen it to Stone, Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Lagunitas.
