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 Simoce. 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.

Ernesto987 (3572) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2014
draft at a bar in jersey, malty, tons of piney hops, bitter finish and boozy. There is jet fuel aromas in there, and the body is thin making the alcohol even more prevalent. Oof.

arminjewell (6070) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pour is clear orange with white head, aroma brought notes of grapefruit, orange, hints of grass, grain, touch of caramel, toffee, slight spicy hop notes as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, grass, hints of white fruit, grass, orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

SirADNielsen (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a golden orange appearance with an off white head. Fair amount of tropical fruit, smarties, slightly herbal aroma. Kind of juicy, dry herbal / grassy, mango, pineapple flavor. Light to moderate sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Not all that bad.

Chalsk (1051) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
On tap at Tap House - Wayne. Continue to be impressed with Kane. Best brewery in Jersey. Pours a hazy golden color with orange hue and white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel and earthiness. Sweet citrus taste with excellent hop hit and refreshing crack end. Boozy. But the perfect level for a DIPA. Very enjoyable.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2014
hazy gold, thin white head. Peppery orange and light rye spice dominate nose, sticky orange and sugar front palate, mid papery oxidation with light bread before sticky, juicy orange end. Too much sugar but the yeast spicing keeps it from tooth decay.

[ Keg ][ 8oz- ][ The Cambridge Philly ][ $5.50 ][ Mini Snifter ][ 6.6.14 ]
>> Thanks Kevin and Joe for the share. Clear orange golden pour with good white foam. Nose is sticky, dank, mild sugar, sweaty, West Coast IPA style. Taste is clean, juicy, mild booze, mild paper, spicy alcohol. Reminds me of something Pizza Port would make.

John25 (366) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Draft at brickhouse in tinton falls. Pours orange gold. Citrus zesty aroma with some pine. The taste adds a malt balance, grapefruit, lemon, and hop resins. The palate finished dry making this 8% imperial ipa very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Uno (Hamilton, NJ). Pours orange/gold with tall white head. Big bright hop aroma here - floral and pine, spruce trees, lemon, orange. Taste is a combination of those elements. Zesty lemon, some decent bitterness, resin, grapefruit. Juicy. Lots to like here.
