Notes / Commercial Description:
Our newest year-round is an Imperial India Pale Ale brewed with high-quality pilsner malt and flaked oats, making this beer light in color but certainly not in body or alcohol content.

Had it on tap at Arts and Crafts Beer Parlour, NYC.
Pours a semi hazy golden color with a modest frothy head. Decent head retention results in a light film and lacing.
A bouquet of fruit aromas, including citrus, tropical and stone fruit, hits the nose and imparts a juicy sweetness. It complements a malty aroma that is bready and biscuity.
The taste opens up with a caramel malt sweetness. Then, a prominent but smooth hops bitterness soon develops and increases in intensity. The hops flavors evoke pineapple, mango, peach, apricot, and grapefruit, as well as pine resin. The finish is citrusy, evoking flavors of grapefruit rind, resiny, bitter and dry.
Medium to full bodied with a chewy malt texture. Finely balanced between sweetness and bitternes, with the resiny hops creating some stickiness in the lips.
Good DIPA overall that drinks easily.

Canned on 7/11/2018 and poured from 12 oz. can into Spiegelau IPA glass. It pours a hazy, golden-yellow color with orange hues, and a half finger of long-lasting, creamy bright-white head and a thin, spotty coating of like-colored lacing. It has a highly fragrant nose featuring pineapple, honeydew melon, tangerine, and lemon, along with light pine needles, sweet malt, and fragrant hops. Wow, this is delicious! It opens with sweet fruit: pineapple, melon, tangerine, and tart lemon, along with sweet oats and caramel. The Mosaic hops are flavorful and mildly bitter. All of the flavors are big and bold. The mouth feel is mildly creamy but the carbonation is lively, and you can feel the 8.5% ABV. There's a bit of alcohol burn at the finish. Overall, this is one delicious DIPA that is super-enjoyable to drink. I paired it with sausage and mushroom pizza and it more than held its own. Captain's Daughter deserves its lofty rating.

Canned 7/17. Poured 12 OZ Can to 18OZ IPA Glass.
Orange aroma is quite good.
Slightly hazy light orange colour.
Orange taste top and tropical fruits follow.
A little bit keen bitterness. It seems to me Mosaic insist too much.
Even Mosaic only IPA had better balance.
(Batch 2)
Tried a couple of times. One day, tried to have it at warmer temp.
Then taste balance is quite good ! Easily to score 4.25.

Tropical vibes aplenty from this RI double, especially in look and nose. It packs a punch, more overtly than some better offerings. But obtained fresh, it’s legit on a hot summer day.

Appearance: hazy golden yellow in color with a 2" head that lasts a long time. Nice lace develops.

Smell: mild tropical fruit tones rise from the glass.

Taste: caramel, pineapple, mango, pear, and some floral and earthy bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp from start to finish, with a bit of dryness at the end.

Overall: a really good and easy to drink beer. Worth seeking this one out.

Cloudy, almost opaque, pale straw in color. Attractive lacing around the glass like sea foam on the side of a boat. Nose is faint and a standard IPA pine. Thin, clean mouthfeel for a NEIPA - not syrupy and doesn’t linger. Taste similarly gets in fast, makes a strong impression, and gets out. Pine, bitterness; resiny taste without the usual syrupiness. A touch of orange on the mouth; otherwise fairly standard NEIPA flavors throughout the sip, although a very good exemplar of the style. Notable as a clean example of the New England style.
