Poured into an IPA glass. It pours a golden-amber with one finger of milk-white head with good retention. It smells of grapefruit, orange peel, and cracker. The taste is predominately citrus with some cracker and hoppy bitterness at the finish. This is a nice blend of a West Coast style hoppy IPA and an East Coast fruity one. Unfortunately, it is neither really fruity (compared to, say Jai Alai) or has a biting hop finish. Nevertheless, it's tasty and is great on a hot day at the Shore. It it medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and the 6.1% ABV allows for multiple tilts. It's good but I prefer the Coastal Evacuation Route DIPA.

On tap in a pint glass.

Hazy orange - copper color with a thin off white head that looks like seafoam, appropriate for Cape May.

I smell peppermint and dried citrus. Underlying malt is biscuity.

Floral, earthy, slightly citrusy. Big an Bready dry malt.

This brew is thick, resinous, and dry. It makes for pucker.Not bitter but dry and hoppy. Tart.

It's hoppy enough but there's no denying the malt.
