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.

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.

JDBaker11058 (1388) - 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!

jredmond (5735) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Draft at the brewery with Linh, Scarlett and mom. Pours a deep amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light overall - bright hop and lots of spice. Mouthfeel is medium with the spice character mostly dominating and a metallic flavor in the finish. Disappointing after trying the promising pale ale.

egajdzis (5435) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Hazed amber with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass, caramel,and light floral hops. Taste of bitter, grassy hops, more caramel, and finishing with an unpleasant raw hop bitterness. Sweet (again), yet bitter and just all over the place.
