Brewed by:
Cape May Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We sought out a single hop variety just for this beer, which is specifically designed for Pale Ales. Light, refreshing but still packed with the zing of the hops, this Pale Ale is done in the Cape May fashion; lots of hopiness but not lots of the bitterness.

55 IBU

On tap in the tasting room, served in a pint glass

A pale yellow body with a one finger white cap. Some solid lacing inside the glass. Tiny bubbles pushing their way north.

Piney, earthy hops on top of a clean two row bill. The zythos blend lends a piney, earthy aroma with a touch of citrus. Lemon and tangerine notes lay low.

Lemon and pine roll over the tongue before some clean malt through the middle. Tangerines, lemon, pine, and with some light bready sweetness into the finish. A good dose of piney, earthy bitterness through the finish. Bitterness lingers and kind of builds with each sip.

Medium bodied with good carbonation. Smooth.

A good use of zythos hops here. Strong, bitter, flavorful hops. A little punch in the aroma would have made this APA shine. Regardless, this is a tasty endeavor. Seek it out,.
