Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MusicaleMike on 06-27-2009

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.

On tap at the brewery.

A: Nice orange to reddish hue. Poured a 1 finger white head. Hop haze.

S: Big citrus tones. Tons of grapefruit. Pretty sure Simcoe is the culprit. Really nice smelling.

T: Huge hop notes, lingering bitterness, fresh and clean tasting. Malty in background with a slight hint of alcohol.

M: More on the sweet side although hops balance out the caramel malt. Alcohol also noticeable but not detracting.

O: Awesome beer that came out of one giant f-up according to Tom Kehoe. Awesome mistake guys!
