Simcoe is one of the smelliest, most aggressive hops out there. Its fruity, dark and has a high alpha acid content. We used this hop to brew up our IPA. Itís brewed with 3.2lbs per barrel and dry hopped. Donít worry, there is a healthy quantity of grain in there, too. Not for the faint of heart, but it is great for the hop head in your life.

Draft at the brewpub, served in a sampler. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Light aroma. Notes of citrus, grass, apricot, sweet malts, and florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts fruity and finishes more bitter. Decent IPA.

Had a bit of a funky gym locker and pine aroma from being crammed full of simcoe, but in a good way (just trust me). Remarkably smooth an easy drinking for 90 ibu's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
