3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden orange color with straw/ripe banana edges and a half finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Floral earthy hop aroma with citrus/tropical fruit sweetness and a prominent pale malt backbone. Dank, resinous and spicy with fresh cut grass, hay and subtle pine needle character countered by tart grapefruit, pineapple and lemon zest. Pale malts with bread, biscuit, some light fruit sweetness and faint booze.
Fuller body than expected with a crisp, spicy hop bite up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt backbone into a nice dry finish. Resinous and earthy with oily hops, dank nugs, grass and earthy pine countered by a sweet tropical/citrus hop presence that’s stronger than the nose suggests. Juicy pineapple and mango flavor along with some ruby red grapefruit. Very fresh and flavorful providing a nice counterpoint to the dry bitterness. Pale malt backbone underneath but doesn’t interfere at all with the complex hop profile. Some biscuit and a touch of light fruit, notably apple and pear. Clean, well balanced and very easy to drink. This is a really nice session beer that is light enough to pound but doesn’t compromise on flavor. Another solid beer from Kane.

Cask at Cork City, 8/21. Dry hopped with Nelson. Murky orange color. Bright, hoppy aroma. Slight notes of cheese come through under the hops. Mid-bitter with a mild sweetness. Somewhat dry, with a smooth, cask feel. I liked this.

Tap. Slightly hazy golden with small head. Mild body with medium hops. Averageish and pretty generic, though the hops are pretty good.

A very respectable offering. Pleasant hop blend with the grapefruity rind bitterness I love.
