COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique double IPA takes the style’s origins a step further. IPAs were born out of making an ale that could sustain a long voyage. For our take, we were inspired by the indomitable Capt. James Cook whose 3rd voyage made him the first to navigate a treacherous route from England to New Zealand to the Pacific Northwest. Using Cascade hops from each of these regions we created a brew that’s citrusy, earthy and full of bold character.

deep amber - red color; piney, herbal hop aroma; juicy, piney hop flavor with herbal notes on a thick, bready malt base with some caramel notes

Pours a hazy copper with light sediment and a large off white head. Surprisingly balanced double ipa. You can taste the hops on the tip of your tongue, but the malt quickly takes over. Not overwhelming though. Quite nice double ipa and doesn’t taste like the 8 percent that it is.

bottle from Liquor Barn / Lexington KY --- Aroma of hops and malt. Nearly clear amber brown color, off-white fluffy head that takes it time to drop off, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that meets it’s match in solid hops after a robust, fizzy, toffee-ish swallow. Big and bold, quite enjoyable. Interesting that the malt could stand up to strong hop presence. I could easily drink this again, but probably not. It’s stronger than I prefer.

Bottle - Pours dark amber, white head. Big aroma of citrus fruit, ripened other fruit, flowers, spice, and fruit loops. Flavor is bold... big smack of citrus, with fermented fruit, pancakes, lemon peel...hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Wonderful pour on this brew. Huge thick white lingering head. Delicious flavor of light grass and while this is a double ipa, it comes in very smooth.

Bottle from Westmire beverage.The color is a clear copper with a thick beige head and nice lace. The aroma is of hops and citrus fruits. The taste also as above plus sweet malt,yeast and notes of some kind of spice,the 8% alcohol is not that noticable.The finish has a nice bitterness that I like.

Amazing smooth flavor. I never would have guessed it was an 8%. Not overly hoppy not thick and heavy, nice. Surprised that it was a Boston. Tap.

Poured from a Bomber into a tulip glass. Aroma- Has a hop smell with some malt tossed in. Appearance- A copper colored brew with a medium to large white head. Taste- A Double IPA with a healthy dose of grapefruit flavor. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- I did not care for this beer. I was surprised I normally am I fan of SA beers. I was not a fan of the heavy grapefruit flavor.

Aroma lovely. Fresh floral citrusy. Murky appearance. Excellent bitter hoppy full boddied. Rich. Maybe a little over the top hoppy. Long finish. Lingers in the mouth for a long time - even after you drink other beers.
