Keg, Brewdog, Leicester. Golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are woody, floral pine with air freshener and grapefruit. Mango with hints of pineapple and mellow oranges. Woody with caramel and candy sugar. Flavours are sweet mango and grain with lemon. Some apricot jam. Spritzy and grassy with bitter grapefruit and green pine. Earthy with leafy aspects and hints of honey. Good stuff.

From tap in Notts’s Brewdog. Really nice copper colour, not too hoppy nose, slight taste of alkohol but not disturbing. Reminds a bit of Belgian ale. Properly balanced, with full body. Very nice IPA!

KrzysztofZ (101) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Wyglad: barwa bursztynowa, bardzo ladna drobna, ladnie krazkujaca pianaAromat tropikalne owoce i biszkopty ale w wytrawnej wersji ;) lekki diacetylSmak pelny, raczej wytrawny, owoce tropikalne, lekkie ciasteczka, silna lekka srednio zalegajaca goryczka ale w przyjemny sposobPodsumowujac pomimo mocnego smaku piwo jest bardzo pijalne. Zdecydowanie polecam!

The_Osprey (2845) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Had both the normal version and one with strawberry and raspberry in the ’hopinator’. The hopinator version is light red, clear, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is strawberry sweets, pic n mix, boiled sweets. Body is medium, slightly foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is light raspberry, straw, grapefruit, boiled sweets, soda water, light grassy bitterness. Both versions were a 3.5.

Brewdog Leeds classic place. Fresh spring grass with crushed pines and a splattering of sweet nectar. Sweet orange with a splash of grapefruit and a hint of pineapple. Slight bitter finish which slightly lingers on the palate. A great IPA not really a Simcoe.
