COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It isn’t always easy being green. Sexy organic hops aren’t easy to come by. This year, we scored hella’ Organic Simcoe® and finally brewed our very first Double IPA. With over 3 lbs of hops per barrel, Kermit The Hop is bright, citrusy and palate-wreckingly bitter. Resinous pine coats the tongue and reluctantly gives way to grapefruit and a grassy bitterness that stays at the back of the tongue for days. Drinking green never tasted this good.

Unless I’m forgetting something, easily the best Bison beer I’ve had. They’ve made a couple cool, unique brews but quality has been so so. This is a solid semisweet hop Bomb with tons of citrus and pine. Moderare to heavy bitterness but balanced with sweet.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Cooper color, thin, but silken, resilient head. Nice hop medley, floral and bitter, as of Chinook and Cascades, with a touch of grapefruit and sweet citrus. The body has more bite, with an almost astringent bitterness and some cattiness to it amidst the acidic grapefruit. Dryish finish.

kaser (4065) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Fresh fruity tropical aroma. 22oz bottle poured at home. Clear yellowish with white head. Slightly bitter taste balanced well with just enough hops. Citrus and juicy. Really good and was nervous for organic on the label for no reason

daleharshman (975) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar ($7.99). Pours a hazy golden yellow hue with two fingers of pillowy white foam with great retention and good lacing. AROMA of sweet citrus, stone fruit (peach, apricot), grassy hops, some pine, and honey malts. FLAVOR of sweet citrus (tangerine), some tropical fruit, tart citrus (lemon), wet pine needles, grassy hops, brewed black tea, and sweet-ish caramel malts. Finishes lightly bitter, lightly sweet with a tinge of alcohol. Nicely balanced...a very hop-forward DIPA, but not particularly bitter. (30, 925)

Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a clear golden amber body with thick white head. Aroma is light soft fruits. Mouthfeel is smooth with nice fruity hop character taking center stage. Light mango and sweet funk. Nice bright, fruity IPA. Yea, that’s that Simcoe.
