Cape May Follow The Gull

My job has a lot of Canadian Geese. It’s to the point that whenever I leave, they actually block the road. I have never seen so many geese in one place. There’s a lake by my job and they tend to hang out there. I had one that actually chased me into the building. It wasn’t cute. I just hope I don’t get a worker’s comp claim from a goose attack. Anyways, this beer was one that I heard nothing about and have no idea how much I paid for it, but decided to give it a shot.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Brewed with 5.5 pounds per barrel of Citra, El Dorado, Amarillo, Cascade, and Azacca, Follow the Gull is super juicy, ridiculously tropical, ultra-drinkable, and imminently Cape May. Brewed to celebrate Cape May County’s 325th Anniversary with the Cape May County Department of Tourism.”

Random: This comes in at 45 IBUs.

The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left very little lacing on the glass. The nose had a lot of tropical fruit with pineapple and mango. There was some grapefruit as well. The taste was very bright. It started with a lot of tropical fruit, specifically mango, pineapple and guava. There was some grapefruit pith and segments. There was a slight sweetness from the malt as well. The body was on the medium side with high carbonation. The finish was quick with tropical fruit. I thought this beer was alright, but nothing amazing. I wouldn’t rush back to having this again.
