Notes/Commercial Description:
Our flagship beer, this is a decidedly hoppy, bitter, moderately strong American pale ale. We load it with Cascade hops that provde floral and citrus notes. This IPA emphasizes the hop aroma and flavor, while muting the hop bitterness.

4oz taster pour into CMBC pint glass at their facility.

A: Pours out a dark orange almost amber like color. Half finger of head. Bright white. Nice carbo. Some spotty lacing bits on the glass during the sip.

S: I want more hops. I get some fruit and light pine. Bready malt. Smells balanced.

T: Really mild. Easy coast for sure. Some hop bitterness right away, but basically plain. Lots of balancing malts in the middle. Almost to much. It's a basic IPA for entry level drinkers.

M: light to medium.

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.
