Cape May Brewing Company's first beer is an IPA by design and flavor but darker than most. It has a nice hop bite up front that isn't overwhelming and blends away into an IPA bitterness with a toasty, caramel finish. The whole taste experience is gentle but impressive with an understated complexity. Overall very nice.

32oz Boston Round growler from the brewery.
Hazed out pale copper hue, excellent lacing all around. Semi-brash citrus rind from Cascade hops, hint of mint and dry breadiness too boot. Smooth with a solid medium body from the sturdy malt backbone. Hearty hop bitterness has big citrus flavors of rind and pith, those flavors linger with a meeting of bread and faint yeast. The dry finish pushes me for another sip.
Loving this brew as it take you to another place rather than the usual paths of trendy IPAs.

Sampling a cold growler poured into a mug. Thanks for the hookup to my brother Curt. I actually visited the brewery in their early days before the tasting room was functional and was worried about how they made it through hurricane damage.
This IPA proves that they are doing A OK.
the beer pours a slightly hazy copper hue with a brown eggshell creamy head of about 1.5 cm.
The aroma is citrus and rindy hops with a good caramel backbone to balance the beer.
The first sip reveals a fine tingly carbonation that tickles my palate as I sample this beer. The body is average and drinks very easy.
Flavor is some caramel and toffee up front and then rolls to a good dose of rindy and grapefruit pith hops. The hops dry out the finish and leave a lingering bitterness.
I dont get any booze on this one, and find the beer enjoyable and dont have much problem polishing off the growler.
Next family vacation I know where I am going for growler fills.

On tap at Cabanas in Cape May. Reviewed from last nights notes.
A- very dark and cloudy for an IPA. This is really not what I expect in and IPA.
S- good aroma, piney and strong.
T- nice hop bitterness upfront, fades a little toward the finish, but ends as a refreshing malt/hop balance.
M- good texture, not too light, but not too heavy.
O- this IPA is good. I dont know if it is something I would go for all the time as it is a lighter, more muted IPA. That being said, it eorked perfevtly for me eating a crab topped burger while looking out onto the ocean. It really is a great beach/pool IPA. They should really can this stuff.
