COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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?

Pours a golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, toffee and caramel. Taste follows, a bit on the malty side but a solid dipa nonetheless

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
This is a pale IIPA, with a bright yet indistinct hop nose. And similar palate, emphasis on hop, good balance. For the hop, prob a little too strong.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Bold golden body with medium, lasting head. Nose is hoppy, punchy and spicy. Taste is hops up front with nice minty flavour and tropical fruits for sure. Creamy texture. Warming finish. Pretty good.

Voodoo (668) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Pours a clean, clear darker golden with a pillowy white head which lingers.....aroma is pilsen malt up front and dominating, slight pine, nectarine......taste is full, thick mouthfeel, pilsen dominates again, odd bit of fruit on the back end. Different.

zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Big aromas of fresh hops and minor dry citrus. White lasting head and light golden body. Crisp hops and light citrus with some light roasty malts. Crisp and dry on the palate.

Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Herbal aromas, citrusy, orangey, piney. Clear orange-amber with a fairly lasting white head. Mostly dry, pretty bitter, a little sweet, boozy. Medium-full bodied, kind of savory, pretty strong.

Draft @ Tap House PHL. West coast hoppy aroma. Dark golden color, with white head and good lacing. Very drinkable, malt is balanced with bitterness. West coast hops, a little piney and also citrus. Med bodied. Overall, very nice! Did not taste like a 9% beer.
