I'm going to try this at the brewer July 7 week. Anyone wish to join us? Love Cape May as a seasonal destination.
a) cider like hazed body, unfiltered juice - with off white head as well, it's the flotsam! Not much last or lace.
s) Tart orangeade / lemonade, freshly squeezed juice, board walk juice bar, salt air.
t) Follow smell with that tart orange bitterness, and adding flower shop perfume, always nicely balanced with piney bitterness. If you like citric IPAs, this works. (Too much so for me)
f) As with orange juice, it's slight cloudy and cottony in the mouth, which lowers its score for me. It's a screw-driver beer.
o) Happy to be 27th review, but wanted to get more balance away from citrus - will definitely go visit brewer.

Big, ballsy and deceptively dangerous because the 8% ABV is well hidden, Coastal Evacuation is a DIPA lover’s delight. It’s a West Coast Style and just a bit hazy, but rather clear for an unfiltered brew. Certainly nowhere near a NEIPA. Lots of citrus and fruit in the nose, and if you do some retro-olfaction, you’ll detect the honeydew described on the label. A pleasant malt base is matched up nicely with a slightly bitter, but rewarding finish. Any true fan of DIPAs, or of West Coast style IPA’s will enjoy this baby. Cape May is on the East Coast, but as one guy noted, it’s actually on the West Coast of Cape May. That has to count for something. Excellent beer!

A great daily double ipa. This is one of my favorite go-to’s. Good smell and perfectly balanced flavor. Smooth feel with afternotes of citrus. Strongly recommend.

12 oz can, no date. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 2F+ white foamy head on pour, pretty decent retention, lots of webby lacing. Beer is a hazy light bronze.

S: Pretty good shot of citrus and melon, with a lot of earth and pine on the back end. Fair amount of creamy maltiness.

T: More or less follows nose. It's more of a West Coast-style IPA with astringent citrus and a piney, earthy finish. Slightly bitter finish.

F: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Good construction and balance. Very drinkable.

T: A solid West Coast IPA, and to be fair the brewery is near the West Coast of Cape May.

Hazy and golden with a receeding white bubbly head. Some citrus, pineapple and some dank notes on the nose. Piney and citric flavored with some immediate sweetness and just mild bitterness on the end of this brew to hide the alcohol pretty well. Medium/light carbonation and a solid medium feel round out this beer. A tad too piney but not bad at all.

Dark yellow in color with a murky, hazy NE IPA appearance. Poured with a moderate, creamy, bright white foam with excellent retention. Medium fruity, citrus hop aromas with pleasant dankness and medium light malty notes. Medium bodied with a light creamy smooth feel from start to finish. Medium light carbonation with subtle boozy warmth toward the end. Medium high fruity, citrus hop flavors up front with a solid medium malty backbone. Medium hop bitterness through the middle followed by herbal hop flavors and light boozy heat to the end. Finished with sweet fruity and boozy notes. Easy drinking, mellow hop characters with solid malt aromas and flavor. Great creamy smooth feel. Very drinkable for the higher abv. Very good.

On tap at the brewery.
Pours with a lightly hazy golden body topped with a white head that leaves sticky lacing on the glass.
Mild hops for style with some floral and herbal character in the nose.
Flavorful with plenty of hop character. Fruity and herbal with some floral and dank elements. Mild-moderate bitterness for style.
