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.

This is a pale brew, golden yellow and with a bright white head. The aroma is hoppy...earthy and herbal. There is a little malt, pale, not any roasted character. Some fruit...peach.m. The taste is balanced. Some serious spicy hops...a a little malt, but it is hop dominant. Full in body. It is a very enjoyable brew.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of hops, a bit of tropical fruits. Taste is very bitter up front, some tropical fruit, alcohol is well hidden, very little malt balance. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
