Our Cape of Good Hope, which changes year to year, pays homage to the original style and adventurous spirit of the first British IPAs. This past year’s release, a west coast style double IPA, is brewed with 100% pilsner malt, imparting a subtle maltiness and beautiful golden color. Loaded with hops, there’s Columbus in the kettle and Centennial in the whirlpool. Then it’s dry hopped with El Dorado, Calypso, and Galaxy, resulting in a dry, crisp ale with unmistakable flavors and aromas of tropical fruits. Doesn’t match the hop listings I’ve seen elsewhere, right?

Cloudy reddish amber appearance with an average size beige head and good lacing. Floral hops hit first in the aroma with plenty of citrus in the background. A clean, pungent taste with a variety of hop characteristics and a solid malt backbone. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish that hides the abv pretty decently. A well made example in a style with a lot of competition.

Pour medium clear orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, bready pils malts, and sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some herbal hops, and some grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA that is pretty well balanced yet still has a nice west coast hoppy edge to it.
