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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle courtesy of stmgl01. Poured into Hunahpu snifter.

A- Pours a copper brownish with a couple fingers of slightly yellowish head that recedes at a moderate pace to leave pretty much no head. Consistently rising carbonation bubbles.

S- Some citrusy lemony hops balanced with bready caramel malts and a tiny bit of oily resin. Nice smell, reminds me a little bit of Alpine's Duet but definitely not as good. About average aroma strength.

T- Light citrusy resinous hops and malts that lend some caramel, nutty, and bready flavors. Nicely balanced and decently flavorful. Hops could have been pronounced a little bit more, but overall a nice clean profile. Finishes with some light bitterness and a light lemony aftertaste.

M- A little bit watery, light carbonation, easy drinking, a little bit of alcohol on the finish.

O- Decent overall DIPA that was nice to try. Hops could have been a little bit more pronounced and abv toned down a little bit to maybe 7%. I would drink this again and it was nice to try, but it's not something that I would search out. (1,067 characters)
