Description 

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.

Cape May Brewing Company’s White Caps Double IPA was judged against the BJCP category 22A (Double IPA).  This fresh, fruit forward Double IPA bursts with melon, mango and resin-like, piney hop aromas and flavors, on a clean, slightly sweet malt base. It is light straw colored, mildly hazy, very effervescent, and pours with a creamy, white head. At 7.5% abv it is lower in alcohol than many double IPAs, yet its’ bright flavor, medium body and creamy texture deliver a full flavor experience and make it the perfect quaffable choice.
