Cape May White Caps

It’s been a rough week at work. We’ve been super busy, so I’ve been going in early and working late. We’ve been getting take out for dinner because Val is super busy as well. I guess we’re lucky that we have a decent sushi takeout place nearby. We don’t have any good Chinese food here. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.

ABV: 7.7%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Brewed with hefty portions of wheat and oats, White Caps has a soft mouthfeel, a pillowy head, and a robust body. Featuring Mosaic and Citra hops, this effervescent Double IPA explodes with notes of papaya, mango, stone fruits, and citrus. Like the Atlantic during a nor’easter, White Caps is slightly dangerous, utterly crushable, and thoroughly New Jersey.”

Random: This beer comes in at 45 IBUs.

The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a pale orange color and hazy with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was filled with tropical fruit. I picked up mango, pineapple and papaya with some apricot and peach as well. The taste was similar to the nose. The mango came out first, with orange, papaya and pineapple coming out next. There was very little malt. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. It had a sticky finish with tropical fruit. A can of this was $2.49, which broke down to $.16 per ounce. I thought this was a decent beer, but not super interesting.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
