Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Cape of Good Hope, which changes year to year, pays homage to the original style and adventurous spirit of the first British IPAs. This past year’s release, a west coast style double IPA, is brewed with 100% pilsner malt, imparting a subtle maltiness and beautiful golden color. Loaded with hops, there’s Columbus in the kettle and Centennial in the whirlpool. Then it’s dry hopped with El Dorado, Calypso, and Galaxy, resulting in a dry, crisp ale with unmistakable flavors and aromas of tropical fruits.

Very enjoyable and drinkable 2ipa. Consumed in a pint glass from a fresh bottle, this beer poured a clear copper with a half inch head. Mild bread and nut aromas. As far as taste, a balanced brew with no typically hop bitterness that comes from other 2x ipas. Kind of a hopped up ESB with a little spice and toffee flavor. Nice lacing and mildly carbonated. A well made ale. I enjoyed this beer and will enjoy this again. Yards is one of my favorite brewers and this beer does not disappoint.
