Growler into a dimpled mug.

A- This beer s beautiful. It's cloudy, hazy, bright and a colorful orange all at once. Bubbles are visible through the clouds, producing a big fluffy white head that tapers slowly and leaves serious lacing.

S- The aroma is all of solid hop punches; citrus and floral. There's a slight note of alcohol but the hops lead the way.

T-Citrus hops upfront with some light sweet malts on the back end. The flavor takes on more of the APA as the glass empties.

M- Thick. There is a lot of body in this 4.6% abv brew. It comes from the addition of flaked oats, I guess. There's a give and take between the hop bite and the malts, balanced. Good carbonation, too.

O- It's no surprise that this is a strong offering, Kane Brewing consistently delivers the goods.
This has so much body for a low abv, hoppy session ale, it's amazing.

On Tap on 8/27/2013

A-Pours a cloudy and murky, but glowing with an effervescent orange color. I tend to really like beers that look like this.

S- Smell is really great, tons of fresh hops even when not directly trying to smell. Had this next to their DIPA and the smell was just as powerful.

T/F- This is where this beer really amazed me. When thinking of it just as a beer, its amazing and packed with flavor you'd expect from a IPA/DIPA, but when thinking about this as a "Session IPA", it blows away all of the offers I have had (ie, All Day IPA, Fractional, ect). The taste if on par with any big bold beer, and the body is amazing for being such a low ABV IPA, no watery feel what so ever, which I believe is the result of the flaked oats.

O- I love any hoppy beer Kane puts out and this is no exception. Such a smooth and fresh hop smell and taste throughout. I would love to see this canned some day.

Kane ripple. Pours light gold, thick creamy foam. Grapefruit nose, some earthy bitter. Light taste refreshing. Hoppy hints below. Nice summer IPA. 4 375 375 375 375

Tweaked the recipe, single hopped with Nelson. One of the greatest pale ales I've ever had. It's got the strong nose of a Nelson ale with a clean, crisp finish. This beer is fantastic and I suggest getting your hands on some.
