Dank and resinous, Snag & Drop is a lupulin-laden beast. With hints of pine and orange citrus in the background, this alluring Triple IPA is packed to the gills with some of our stickiest and most pungent hops. Snag & Drop is waiting to lure you in and snag you like a trophy fish.

this brewery has definitely improved over the years, glad to support local (OK, 2 hours south, but that is certainly more local than California), and if you like old school shore towns Cape May is hard to beat (except for all the philly folks... damn hoagies...)

muddy lemonade, little to no head with a scant O-ring, this stays murky the entire time, not exactly the most inviting thing but I am more about the substance so...

if pine trees birthed orange-cones (not the construction type ya' ninny, I am speaking metaphorically), this is strolling down the street stopping traffic with amazing and intense hop aroma, total green skunk notes underneath the initial loveliness, you can detect the booze just a hair but you have to really want to, mild tropicals, man... this is nirvana

taste etc...
subtle carbonation, mildly prickly, fits the beer well, a little more tropical fruit than I thought this would have, but thankfully there is a nice kick in the nads of bitterness to help balance it out, every sip reveals every little piece you sensed in the nose, oddly it finishes smooth, sure, there is some lingering bitters but it invites the next sip, the only way you sense the ABV is some warming in the old stomach (oh, and about 10 minutes later... that not so subtle tap on the shoulder)

I wish they had this on tap last year when I was down there ! The coastal evacuation DIPA is very good... this is great, this might justify the tolls...nah, not really, I am surprised they didn't call it Cape May Diamond... they should serve this stuff down @ sunset beach, it would be super nice to sip on this and watch the sun sink beneath the SS Atlantus...

18th Review. Among my favorite 100 IBU DIPAs ever.
a) Hazed yellow orange springs thick white 1 finger head that laces and lasts.
s) Large aroma of orange rind , blossoms, floral shocase.
t) Fills mouth with massive caramel, orange, rind, earth, hemp, pine, and more flowers tempered by bitterness.
f) Good weight, layers of flavor, soothing. Alcohol less well hidden. Crisp
o) Classic DIPA 100 Ibu special last beer of evening. (Found on sale at WFM Red Bank).

Can dated 12/22/20 into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a nice off-white head. Great lacing. Initial impression is pineapple, pink grapefrit, pine, and a nice caramel backbone. Mouthfeel is medium-thick - just perfect. Alcohol is incredibly well hidden - hafta keep telling myself it's a work night, it's a work night....
Finish is juicy and somewhat sweet. Overall, this is probably my favorite (thus far) Cape May brew!

An absolute 5 star IPA all the way!

A nice golden pour with balanced flavor and easy to drink. A slightly hoppy flavor with a ultra mild tropical finish.

You can easily gulp it down with the punchy abv realization hitting you late.

Phenomenal beer!

Canned 12-14-20.

A - Medium opaque orange gold color with thick creamy white lacing.

S - Citrus, orange, and pineapple on the nose.

T - All about the citrus on the palate from start to finish with minimal malt presence: Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and earthy citrus peppery spice. Nice lingering earthy spicy citrus on the backside.

M - Big viscous body with some carbonated pricklies on the tongue. Coats the mouth with a hefty layer of citrus earthy spice.

O - This is one of those beers that continue to build as one works through the can. I'll definitely buy more of this. Recommended.

Snagged a pint can and dropped its contents into a clear glass liter mug. Even before the pour, a bouquet of hoppiness fills the air. Visually, it's a quite hazy orange-amber with a white head that is disappearing quickly. It's not leaving much glass lacing, but some is there to behold. Whether it's the way its brewed, or if it's added lupulin, likely the latter, this is one hopfest. Starting hoppy and ending hoppier, there's also a supple body here for transport. Malt/alcohol sweet and resinously hoppy bitter are the prevailing tastes, but it's more complex than that. The hops run from dank to dry bitter, with a moderately clean finish. Yes, the taste of alcohol is omnipresent, but come on, it's a Triple IPA with a 10% ABV.

Big head cresting close to three fingers, nice density, just off-white hue. The liquid is cloudy but not to the level of purée you find a lot these days, apricot skin orange, easy to see very active bubbles break towards the surface. Good bracing quality to the nose, herbaceous without a lot of funk, dried pine sap, peppercorns, grapefruit zest, the papaya, pineapple, passion fruit scents more direct than billowy and do not connote sweetness. Fairly full-bodied and creamier than expected based on the nose, the carbonation really lifts it up and churns. Loaded with citrus, grapefruit and blood orange start to finish. Coal tar, pine sap, black tea leaf, touch of doughy scone. Energetic without being overwrought. Apricot, mango, nectarine fruit, not quite to tart pineapple. Relatively sweet even as the texture remains closer to dry. Very nice persistence through the finish. Boozy without heat. The heaviness slows you down otherwise you’d chug a few down in a sitting. (Canned 2/10/20)
