Delicious ipa. Very dry with a pineapple hop aroma. Clean medium mouthfeel makes this very balanced and drinkable. Hops linger.

Great IPA. This is a mix of great hoppy taste without a bitter after taste. If you want a great everyday drinking beer this is a winner!

16 oz. can. Orange body with a small white head. Smells of mango hops and some caramel malt. Tastes less interesting. More grapefruit than tropical fruits. Some caramel and toasty malts and a moderate bitterness. Medium body. Solid IPA, but smells better than it tastes, ultimately.

Growler. Nice sized offwhite head of very fine bubbles with relatively good retention. Citrusy aroma with some mango, caramel malt and pine sap. Color is a slightly hazy light orange. Moderate bitterness up front with some grassy flavors, bitter orange, grainy malts and herbs. Rather dry mouthfeel and palate. Light alcohol presence. Pretty well balanced. A decent IPA.

Pours a hazy straw gold with small white head. Smells of pine. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - grapefruit, a bit of spruce, some caramel.

16 ounce can thanks to Steve. Pours a bright copper color with a large white head. A nice citrus burst in the nose. Big resin, candied hops, pine, huge citrus hops. A soft malt backbone. Quite nice. Aggressive bitterness at times which I enjoy. This tastes more like a 10% IPA. Lovely.

Can at home from Ed5388. Pours gold with a lasting layer of white head. Aroma is citrus hops, somewhat faint. Taste is more of the citrus hops, minimal malts. Solid but unspectacular.

Can shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a near clear light gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of grass a and light citrus with a sweet grains backbone. Flavor has more of a earthy juicy citrus with some sweet grains and some light grass.

pint glass poured out of own pub keg. this single IPA is about as good as any IPA out there. beer pours a nice light orange color. citrusy smell, not too strong of a hop smell. However, the hops are there when you taste this beer. The taste is simply fantastic. strong hop taste with delicious citrus notes afterwards.

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...
