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

22 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear amber-brown with a two inch plus tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, hops, citrus, fruit, resin, pine, grapefruit, spice and some warming alcohol. Has a nice hop aroma. The body is decent with warming alcohol and some bitterness in the finish. A quite pleasant drink that holds its own as it warms.

Pours a clear amber with a small off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is a floral hop and pine. Thick mouthfeel with a strong hop bite and caramel with lingering bitter finish. Alcohol present but not too overpowering. A 9/11

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 doesnt 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 its 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. Its stronger than I prefer.

Cajun (431) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2016
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.

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.
