If you can get your hands on some fresh Simcoe hops during harvest season, this one is a winner. MASSIVE tropical notes in the aroma, balanced out with just enough of a malt backbone. Be sure to use hop bags when brewing this one, and make sure there is plenty of space in your kettle to accommodate 2.4+ lbs. of beautiful, plump, fresh hops.
