A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong India Pale Ale (IPA). The beer emphasizes the hop aroma and flavor white muting the hop bitterness. Loaded with Cascade hops that provide Floral and citrus notes. It’s called India Pale Ale because it was a hoppier, more alcoholic version of the typical ale shipped to British troops in India in the 1800s. Turns out that hops and alcohol are a great preservative.

Hazy golden orange pour with minimal aroma-slightly funky. Flavor, however, was pine, citrus, some caramel. Nice IPA. Frothy white head. Decent lacing.

Tastes like liquid weed. Hoppy but a funky aftertaste. Good mouthfeel but didn't live the flavor or finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (2142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour. Large soapy foam head. Sporadic lace. Mildly hoppy taste with a slightly creamy palate up front (maybe due to the foam). Pine. Citrus. Resin. Blonde caramel malts. Few odd notes in the finish. Not feeling it.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2015
White head with murky dark orange body. Resinous aroma accented with pine. Malty hop taste and moderate bitters. Relatively dry finish with a nice bite.

njdrinker (22) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Almost no aroma at all. The taste is all bitter grassiness. Not an enjoyable beer in anyway. I don’t really have anything nice to say about this beer. Just another poor version of an IPA.

raymow (1167) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2015
on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - This is a very good IPA. Has a nice hop character and a nice color. Lightly sweet - very good.

skmikeg (1472) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours bright medium orange with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty IPA that is pretty drinkable.

MadRobin (2505) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 6, 2014
On tap 6 oz. pour at Cape May Brewing Company taproom in Rio Grande, NJ. Cloudy, rusty-orange with an off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, graham crackers, citrus and light fruit. Taste of pine, caramel, citrus, light tropical fruit, and bread. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1647) - Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Appearance: clearish orange, with a bright white head. Aroma: marmalade, blood orange, grapefruit. Taste: malt of light, sweet graham cracker, hops are citrus and light pine. Finish: slightly astringent and mineral, with floral bitterness. Notes: On tap at the brewery. Middle of the road IPA. Most beers from Cape May seem to have a slight mineral tone on the finish which can be just slightly detracting from the overall experience.

This wasn’t a bad beer! The color was really nice along with the flavor...I personally would drink it again...and I have a closet full of Heady Topper, Lawson’s, Three Floyd’s, and Gandhi- Bot...etc. Not bad CAPE MAY!
