Pours a huge, dense head that collapses into a fluffy, soapy head as best it can; surprisingly resilient. Floral hops underneath butterscotch in the nose. Golden-straw color. Starts off with a slight butterscotch/floral hoppiness, builds into a rich butterscotch flavor as the malt melds with this, and it peaks in a medium-low bitterness. Finish is malt and more butterscotch, with a touch of lingering hop bitterness.

Normally, I dislike butterscotch notes, but this is JUST hoppy enough to cut the sweetness. The butterscotch actually pairs well with the hoppiness, thought it drowns out the nuance of the hops in favor of butterscotch.
Not bad at all. I'd drink one every now and then.
If you don't like butterscotch, AVOID THIS!

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Breakin' into the captain's private stash... This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a relatively short-lived finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises mild orange zest, toffee, very light pine needle, and plenty of biscuit. The taste holds notes of rind-y orange zest, light biscuit, and a touch of mild vinyl. That last bit really hurts this beer. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, an okay EIPA, but one that suffers from that bit of vinyl. Otherwise, it ain't too bad.

Yeah....the Shipwrecked Captain's Copper....not so much. It pours a cloudy amber with thin to non-existent head that is leaving a small spot lace. The virtually no scent and the taste is very bland. The mouthfeel is lighter in body and weak carbonaiton. Overall not a beer that will win many awards.

Reviewed from session notes.

Pours out a copper-amber clear color with a disappearing head and no lacing. A light aroma and flavor of toasted bread are almost completely obliterated by an onslaught of diacetyl butter, sticks and sticks of butter. SO MUCH BUTTER. Even the body has a greasy oily buttery texture. Drain poured after half a glass, I just couldn't handle all of the diacetyl. Memorable for having the most butter in it by far out of any beer I have ever tasted up until the date of this review, it even exceeds the allowable levels granted by an "English" style by more than a factor of ten-fold.
