Pours a bright yellowish-orange color, with loads of hop haze and a voluminous off-white head. The can calls out orange citrus and honeydew melon notes, which is accurate, but there's an earthy aroma on the nose, too.

The orange citrus notes are very bright and VERY forward on the taste, and the melon flavor is notable, too. This is a substantial, well-executed West Coast-style DIPA that is a pleasure to drink.

Fact....these guys make some great beer. I liked this one but not as much as their Cape May IPA which was quite different and interesting. This one, although VERY good is far too similar to many others on the market.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a fine-bubbled, persistent off-white head. Initial impression is hoppy orange, lemon, and an undertone of pine resin just to keep things interesting. Mouthfeel and carbonation are perfect. Finish is citrus-y and slightly sweet, with a lingering bitternes on the back of your tongue. Very drinkable. Highly recommended!

a pretty looking glass of ipa, not as brassy and shiny as a lot of them are, more of an understated luster and a pale orange color. on top of that is a gorgeous white head, permanent and about an inch high, thick and sexy, with lots of bubbles underneath. i wish i got to this while it was a little newer, it is a little ravaged by time, but its obvious how good this was, and frankly it still is solid, with probably a little more hop bitterness now that it used to have, but holding up in some respects, as there is a sweet oily element to the hops thats nice with the malt body in here, and there are notes of peach ring candy, white life savers, and fresh pineapple to the hop profile, along with some vegetal bitterness in the taste. its balanced even though its hop dominant, if that makes sense, and the high carbonation is awesome, its a rarity in the style, at least to this extent, but i really dig its contribution of lightening this up. a little boozy at the end, especially at temperature, but this is one i will be on the lookout for in the future, i would love to try it at its optimal freshness. quite obviously a very well made big ipa!

This would be my go to beer if I didn't live 800 miles away from the brewery. Fantastic all around beer. Just the right amount of everything in this double IPA. Keep up the good work Cape May Brewing Company. I drove 2 cases of this back to Illinois and hopefully I'll be back for more.

In Laurel:
LOOK: Pours a highly hazed pale straw yellow with a thin white head that leaves side glass lace.
AROMA: Citrus hops that are not extreme but significant. Pine bitterness.
TASTE: Orange peel. Hopbitterness with a malt background. Hides its 8% APV.
Thick on the tongue. Excellent beer.

This beer deserves a higher score than it has. A really good DIPA from Cape May BC. They distribute this one in 12 oz cans, $12 for a 6 pack is a winner for this quality every time. Give it a shot, you'll enjoy it and it won't break the bank. Very hoppy, sweet, floral and 8%abv. Super drinkable.
