WILK Friday BeerBuzz–26 Aug 2011 (Yards Cape of Good Hope IPA w/Steve Mashington)

WILKFridayBeerbuzz3Frequent flyers on the Friday BeerBuzz will not only remember the great show we did with Steve Mashington from Yards Brewing back in January of 2011.  We profiled Yards ESA, (asked Steve about his non-existent engagement)…but more importantly, Steve announced that we should watch for Yards Cape of Good Hope IPA to come out in bottles in the future.

Flash forward June 2nd, and sure enough, Yards received label approval for Cape of Good Hope bottles and COGH Ale kegs.  As promised we checked in with Steve again a month or so ago and found out Cape of Good Hope IPA would hit the streets in a somewhat limited release in Aug…so here we are.
It was fun to have Steve join us to sample the new Cape of Good Hope Imperial IPA.  Probably not as fun as the engagement joke played on us on the last show with Steve or even the visit to Yards to pick up COGH, but it was still a ton of fun having Steve back with this great new beer.

[image%255B6%255D.png]You’ll note that COGH uses the “I” in IPA as “Imperial” not “India” and for very good reason.  This is a big, certainly Imperial-level IPA.  Strong in ABV, strong in IBU and strong in flavor….but oddly enough the beer has a wonderful delicate mouthfeel that I’m pretty sure most people will really love.

Get down to Yards brewing Co in Philly and try this one for yourself.
