Cape May Brewing Company in Cape May, NJ will be debuting cans for two new Double IPAs according to Cape May's PR and Marketing Manager, Alicia Grasso. On May 26th, Cape May received approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) for two new labels - one for Bounding Main and one for a Double Dry Hopped version of Coastal Evacuation.
Bounding Main is a brand new offering from Cape May. At 7.8% ABV, can art details the profile of Bounding Main as:
Brewed with 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel, Bounding Main has a soft and pillowy mouthfeel, a gentle bitterness and aromas of tropical fruits: mango, guava, citrus - all with a hint of dank in the background. Like many a stormy wind, Bound Main will blow you away.
According to Grasso, 16oz cans of Bounding Main are "coming out early July and will [see] full distribution".
Also approved by the TTB is a Double Dry Hopped variant of Coastal Evacuation. DDH Coastal Evacuation comes in at 8.0% ABV. Can art details:
Double dry-hopped with Galaxy and Mosaic, DDH Coastal has notes of papaya and mango, with a full body and an intense aroma.
According to Grasso, "DDH Coastal Evacuation is a tasting room release only (super limited) and we do not have a set date yet on this release".
The original Coastal Evacuation, packed with copious amounts of Centennial hops, has been a focal point of Cape May's portfolio since 2014. In March 2017, Cape May made a DDH version available in Firkin using Citra and Amarillo hops. In March 2018, as part of their "One Off Wednesday" and Take Takeover at Cloverleaf Tavern in Caldwell, NJ, a DDH version with Mosaic and Amarillo hops was available.
