COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique double IPA takes the styleís 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 thatís citrusy, earthy and full of bold character.

This poured an amber color with a beige head. Aroma was resinous piney hops with sweet malts. Flavor was sweet malt resinous, light fruity honey, very cloying.

Light amber pour. Aroma is loaded with resin, grapefruit and some tropical fruit notes...maybe a hint of guava. Lots of good bitterness balanced by some caramel malt notes. Pretty damn decent.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral and a touch of brown sugar. Flavor is pineapple, pine, cherry, spruce, lavender. Very hoppy and wonderful. I love the pine, citrus and floral that the hops impart.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with thick beige head. Aroma of pine, earth and very malty blended with fruity esters. Flavor is sweet, earthy, piny, fruity esters, hints of astringency with a solid balanced bitterness in the finish. Heavy mouthfeel with high carbonation. Solid brew.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Clear amber pour, frothy head. Caramel aroma. Spicy, pine hop presence...pretty bitter. A lot of alcohol burn in this that just wasnít pretty. Kinda sticky as it warmed, too. Just not great.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pour was amber with a slight off white colored head. Aroma of string citrus and pine. Flavor was all downhill from there, earthy metallic notes, astringent bitterness, sticky sweetness, just not too good. Mouthfeel sticky, drinkable probably only due to the carbonation that broke it all up. Meh.

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle, poured into a snifter. Pours a honey/amber color, very pretty, with a 1 finger off white head. Gobs of sticky lace. Aroma is strong pine resin and grapefruit, balanced with a hint of caramel sweetness. Strong grapefruit hop flavor up front fading to a more mellow floral hop in the middle with a breadlike biscuit flavor last. Finishes bitter. Full, creamy palate. Very nice, Iím gonna look for another one of these.

Bottle. A clear dark golden orange color with a white head. A hoppy pine aroma. A nice semi-sweet malty flavor with a hoppy finish. Smooth and wet with a light dry finish.
