    Want to do a side by side with Sneakbox and First Peak. First Peak was nothing like Sneakbox for me, despite the description saying it was pretty similar

    agree, first peak definitely lighter and drier, higher toned. sneak box had bigger mouthfeel, a bit juicier and more hazy. not that I didn't like First Peak, but was definitely a bit different

    I like Sneakbox way more than First Peak. Not saying First Peak is bad, just different. I almost wish Kane hadn't said that it was a spiritual successor of Sneakbox, I would have rather thought of it as a different beer instead.

    I 100% agree. I also like Sneakbox a lot more than First Peak. By saying it was related to Sneakbox it immediately increased my expectations and left me a little disappointed. Still a good beer though.

    New ipa was tasty. Sucked down a taster real quick as i had to run in and out quickly. Was there arounf 1230 and there was no line and tasting room was pretty empty

    Surprisingly quiet release today. The new ipa was very similar to Party Wave, maybe a tad bit more dank.

    Drinking Indicators now. A bit more bite that something like Party Wave but real good. Not too crowded, Party Wave cans are in the front cooler now.

    I can't believe people didn't love First Peak. I get that you can see your fingers through it a little but what a tasty crusher. Struggling not to enjoy it faster.

    Indicators was tasty has a bit of a bite. It's no Weimea Punch though. Had a 12 oz pour, that was enough for me. I bought Sneakbox and Party Wave cans instead of getting a growler fill.

    Indicators was awesome. Easily near the top of the Kane IPAs for me

    I left around 5:30 today and there were about 5-6 4 packs of party wave left in the fridge. Not sure if more was in the back though.

    Indicators was great and fresh Sneak and PW are tasting excellent. PW is one of or the best IPA(s) I have had the pleasure of enjoying. Just rings every bell for me.

    Have to agree on PW as far as NJ IPAs are concerned...it is top notch.

    Was there around 3 on Sunday and they still had a cooler full with no line so I'd say you'd be fine on Thursday.

    I liked Indicators a lot! It was really well-balanced and with the hop profile it wasn't bitter at all. Kane seems to like brewing with Waimea.

    Reminded me a little of party wave. They must have a big contract for galaxy/Waimea or buy them on spot.

    I did try it, hence the regret for missing it in cans that never happened. Would love a 4 pack of that.

    Indicators will also be going out on draft to bars and restaurants starting this coming week so there should be ample opportunity to get some.

    I know the opening post has a range of prices for growlers, but can anyone post a recent board/price list. I see the offerings on FB from last weekend, but hoping to see a breakdown of 1L vs 2L for some beers.

    Planning on hitting the brewery on my way to vacation in a week and a half. Will hopefully pick up some cans and growler fills for my week!
