It’s officially Summer in New Jersey. Places are slowly starting to open up and traffic is getting heavier. At least we still have breweries doing direct delivery, like Kane.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “A wax comb is a tool used in the maintenance and removal of surfboard wax on a surfboard. Wax combs typically have features such a jagged or toothed edge and a straight, relatively sharp edge. The jagged edge is used to create textured grooves for improving the traction of the wax and the straight edge is used for scraping off unwanted wax. In addition to the straight edge for wax removal, some wax combs even have an inwardly curved edge for the rails (such as Mr. Zog’s Sex Wax ‘Sex Comb’). Additionally, wax combs can have features such as fin key, bottle opener or a snap for portability (attachment to interior pocket loop, lanyard or leash attachment lanyard).”
Random: Although given Kane’s location, I should have figured out that their beers would have beach themed names, I didn’t figure it out until now.
The beer poured with a finger of loose, pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The beer was bright yellow in color and had no carbonation visible due to the haziness. The nose started with grapefruit pith and zest and some pine as well. The taste was much of same, big notes of bright citrus and then pine sap and pine needles. There was also some green melon note as well. The body was on the medium side with a lot of carbonation. The finish was sticky with grapefruit. I enjoyed this beer and would search this one out.
