Draft. In the land of great IPAs this one stands out, it’s an extremely bright, refreshing and balanced example. Citrusy and tropical, slightly resiny, nice burst of floral and citrus in the nose. Dry and crisp at the end without overly bitter notes. Very, very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE: March 30, 2016... OCCASION: celebrating a gift card at the Tap House in Mansfield--with a second beer... GLASSWARE: 16 oz. pint... APPEARANCE: murky waters to start, with a light golden peach body denying any vision through it... as it is a draft and filed to its rim, the glass sports a singular ring of white foam... arcs form in the draining... AROMA: punchy pineapple, grapefruit and resin impact the nostrils... malts are suggestive of light metal and aromatic bread, but not pronounced... PALATE: smooth, with activity at the teeth as expected.... medium-bodied and formidable enough not to be consumed in large gulps... a rather bitter finish puckers the lips... TASTE: true to its aroma, the powerful collision of citrus (thanks to everything, but big nod to the Citra) and forest pine (thanks to the Chinook)... the resin retreats into a mostly grapefruit/ pineapple profile, which is bold, almost arresting for a beer at 6.5%.. OVERALL: Holy hops! After Carton’s Red Rye, this IPA arrived in a big way, clearing out the remainder of nachos and cutting the sharpness of cheese with nonchalance... a delicious, mostly fruity beer that works as a stand-alone or with a properly-paired meal, but not so much as a sessionable brew... a good introduction to Kane, one of the Jersey breweries others have urged me to try...

Cloudy straw color with white head. Served in a shaker pint so my aria notes are limited. Some tropical and citrus. Fresh and citrusy, Pilsner malt comes through. Very mild bittering with lots of Citra hop flavors. Very refreshing. With lots of citrus at the end.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at Mtc Office. Pour was cloudy amber with abt 1/2 inch of foam which dissapated fairly quickly. The aroma was mixture of citrus and pine. The initial taste matches the aroma, specifically citrus and pine, with an aftertaste of tar. The taste of hops is very subtle. A good IPA but nothing noteworthy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with tangerine hues and a frothy, one finger white head that had good retention, slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing are left behind.
Dank floral hop aroma with some oily resins and earthy grass along with pine needle, spruce tip, tropical/citrus fruit and pale malt. Grassy pine needle character followed by mango, pineapple and grapefruit. Some sweet malt underneath the hops with hints of caramel and toffee along with some bread and cracker.
Full bodied with a blast of dank, earthy hops that provide the perfect amount of lingering, dry bitterness. Crisp and refreshing with the resinous oils countered by sweeter hop notes and a pale malt backbone. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit and blood orange, along with some mango and pineapple. The malt backbone is a little stronger than expected but doesn’t interfere with the dank hop notes. Some caramel and toffee flavor along with hints of bread, biscuit and graham cracker. Very nice balance of flavors in this beer. The hop profile is very complex and flavorful and there’s just enough malt character, making this beer incredibly drinkable.

16oz can from the brewery pours a hazy yellow with some frothy, white head. Nose has quite a bit of wet/dank hop, vegetal to that end, lemon, heavy wet grass, some pine needle, a little floral sweetness lurking. Flavor has some honey and flower pollen, more soap and grass than pine here, lemon, light tropical fruit. Finishes dry, lightly bitter and very easy to drink.
