Captain's DaughterCaptain's Daughter
Notes: 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. It is aggressively hopped with Mosaics out of the Pacific Northwest, giving the Captain’s Daughter a strong aroma and flavor of tropical and stone fruits.

8/28/21 Purchased at Mo’s. Very good but World Class? Strong Pine flavor. Residual bitterness. Prefer Hopslam & Sip in category. Would do again.

From a 16 oz. can dated 06-22-21. Sampled July 31, 2021.

The appearance is an orange-amber color with moderate clarity under a fizzy but lingering off-white head.

I pick up floral and grassy notes in the aroma with a barley grain toastiness in the base.

Smooth, about medium mouthfeel.

The taste begins sweet but then the floral and grassy hops appear and balance off this tasting experience. Really, by far, a more traditional IPA and for that I am grateful.

Four pack copped from Bottle King in Livingston. Pours a golden effervescent hue with prominent frothing. Assertive aroma replete with notes of coriander and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile. Good stuff.

Poured from a 12 ounce can dated "OH YEAH" 03-17-21 into my fave Sixpoint glass. It's hazy light orange in color. Good head and surprised by the light aroma. Citrus and orange. Taste is fruit, citrus and dank. This is so good 'cause it's so different. Thick and creamy. Teeth sucking, tongue licking and lip smacking good and bitter. Overall a monster of an IPA. This beer is really amazing and can't believe it tastes so good and be so bitter. It's why I keep trying new IPAs and @tasterschoice62 Larry B made it possible. Thanks for sharing BA

Pours a hazy straw color with a small head and lacing.

Smells of dank piney hops. Tastes of hops and some tart tangy citrus. Very mildly bitter finish for a hop forward brew.

Medium body with light carbonation. Dry, clean mouthfeel.

Very pleasant and drinkable brew!

I'll start by noting it's very good .... World class? Perhaps a bit overstated ... Nice, but not amazing appearance and nose, it is flavorful and yummy ... But "world class?"

Pours a nicely hazy golden color with a dense, substantial white head that clings to the glass as you make your way to the bottom. Note that this is not a NEIPA-style hazy, it’s squarely in the WCIPA hazy category.

The nose is crammed with dank citrus and ripe berry aromas courtesy of the Mosaic hops. I am a Mosaic fanboy, so this is in my sweet spot.

The taste is a Mosaic sledgehammer, with dank citrus flavors and a delicious ripe berry flavor that fits this beer perfectly. There’s also a subtle bready note from the pilsner malt that is a perfect complement to the dank fruit flavors.

The mouthfeel is full and drying, as I expected. The first thought I had after the first pull from this was, “this is their Heady.” After working my way through two pints of this, I’ll stick with that assessment. Truly a world-class WCDIPA, IMHO.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a two finger head; squiggles and shards

Smell: Mango and melon with dank lemon and grapefruit

Taste: A touch of the biscuit underneath with the mango and melon emerging; dank lemon and grapefruit flavors grab at the taste buds in short order; after the swallow there are the tropical elements linger in the shadow of the bitter tones

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A little bit of New England in the mix but a lot of good old West Coast character here

Thanks, jrc1093, for the opportunity

Picked up a tall boy as a sample from Bullseye Beverage in Smithtown while visiting home for the holiday. Very impressive appearance with a huge, rocky, tight bubbled head and cloudy golden body. Nose is floral and herbal hops and a medium grain note.

Big citrus and herbal notes in the flavor, along with lemon peel, pineapple and oily pine resin. Texture is tight and shines in the aftertaste. This has a smooth and creamy character, almost like its been pasteurized. This is super solid within the style. Maybe not as creative or complex as some of the style, but the pure craft is tough to top.

Look - 12 oz can, poured into an IPA glass. straw yellow in color, a little cloudy, and small head with very good lacing retention.
Smell - citrus and pine forward in smell, with the hops definitely present. Not a ton of complexity, but smell is certainly quite pleasant.
Taste - hops come in immediately packing quite a punch in a west coast IPA fashion. malts help smooth out taste, and the warmness from the alcohol is very detectable towards the end.
Feel - medium bodied, average carbonation, and a heavy hitter at 8.5% ABV. alcohol is not masked much, and the boozy warmness can be tasted even when the beer is quite cold.
Overall - light in color and seemingly innocuous, this is a heavy hitting beer that packs a significant amount of flavor. in some ways, a "rustic" and old school imperial IPA, and I can see why many are willing to give it such high marks.

2 month old can enjoyed in August 2020.

Light in color and light on the nose, yet good mouth feel but long, hoppy finish. Too long actually.

ABV not well balanced enough to warrant it's 95+ rating...
