Let’s Go Phillies!
The MLB playoffs are here, and it seemed appropriate to watch my baseball team play game #3 while sipping on a Cape of Good Hope IPA from Yard’s Brewing.
It is an Imperial IPA, but the hop bitterness is not overwhelming at all. It has a bunch of spicy notes to it, and also a little bit of sweet. There is also a ton of maltiness here, which I think pairs well with the double-dry hopped. There are a ton of flavors, and it is very unlike any other IPA I’ve tried.
I think this would be a great Imperial IPA for those wary of the crazy hoppy bitterness associated with the style.
