Canned 12 days ago. This beer fucken LIFTS. pours a clear honey color with a large white head that lasts a while, giving you low carb in the beer once it settles. Aromas of urine. Taste is bitter upfront, supported by a huge malty backbone. Finishes semi-dry with a lingering cat piss bitterness. Very comparable to weyerbacher double simcoe. #partyin

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Alla Spina with Pat. Pours a light orange body with white head. Aroma is pale malt, caramel malt, and muted hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of orange, wheat, grass hop, spice, grain and bitter hop. Overall, pretty boring ipa with a strong malt base. I’d like to try this at the source to ensure freshness, because I really get no Simcoe character at all.

Can. Pours a rusty orange color with a small head. Nose is all sweet citrus with hops and pine. A very pleasant nose. Taste is very bitter with deep pine and resin notes. Notes of tropical fruits as well but not like the nose. Finishes very bitterly immediately on the palate and lingers and lingers. Great IPA for hopheads. Nice Quaff Score 8 / 10

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Moderate aromas of roasted grain for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pepper and light dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. Light, refreshing and full of IPA goodness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz cans from CCB. Pours a mostly clear yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a nice burst of simcoe- piney with hints of grapefruit and a nice caramel backbone to balance it out. Flavor is similar- nice caramel and malt backbone in front of this pine and grapefruit treat. Medium in body, a nice assertive bitterness that doesn’t drag its nails in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little more translucent than a JAi Alai. Slighty sticky lacing. Aroma was slightly dank with some sweeter fruit aroma of pineapple and mango. Flavor off the bat reminded of coconut water. Then the dry acidity of the hops. traditional Jai Alai finish. The coconut water really stood out to me. Pretty nice beer. Good balance overall.
