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.

Draught at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Newark, NJ
Murky orange-blond color with compact head. The aroma is a bit fruity and animal. Moderate sweetness, correct body strength; nice support from the pale malts; huge hopping, giving a strong resiny and animal character, a bit fruity too.
Nicely brutal, a bit rough though.

Jow (2400) - New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Tap at Dinosaur BBQ in Newark was hoping they would have some Kane on tap. Pours clear orange with fine one finger head. Nose is sticky citrus and other summer fruits. Tastes of oranges, grapefruit, mango, some spicy pepper, hot alcohol, and candy. Fine balance semi thick palate. Pretty damn solid.

nimbleprop (5412) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 26, 2014
32oz growler from the brewery pours a clear orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is solid, quite old school, big sticky pine, orange peel, some soap, some honey comb, mild herb, grapefruit. Flavor is a good mix of malty/honey sweetness and juicy citrus, pithy too, orange and grapefruit mostly, some pine but less than the nose, a little dried grass. Full bodied, bitter finish.

Dorwart (2410) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Growler. Poured a thin white head of varying sized bubbles. Lots of white sediment settles out of the brew while standing. Not sure if it is yeast, grains or hops. Interesting hoppy aroma with some rubber, oranges, stinky feat and caramel malts. Color is a very cloudy golden orange. Primarily hops in the flavor with some roasted grains, dried orange peel and some string beans. Noticeable alcohol presence and warming. Finishes dry and bitter with a bit of pastyness. A decent brew with some strange flavors and aromas.

Ernesto987 (4287) - Arizona, 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.

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.
