COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While that damn Dionysus was taking all the glory, Simcoe, Greek God of Beer and Relaxation, was out, diligently developing tools for man to brew- fresh grain and hops, active yeast, and bountiful water. With its golden glow and sharp hop bite, our Imperial Single Hop IPA is a tribute to this lesser-known God (and as temple-worthy as its namesake).

Poured into tulip glass. Very good double IPA. Nice pale color with minimal head. Bold hoppy flavor. Wife hated it.

Really excellent double IPA with a really nice white head that lasts and nice golden color. Wonderful aromatic hops. One of the best.

LinusStick (2838) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2013
A great surprise from this brewer! Aroma was nice and dank. Lemon, cat and sticky sweet malt with just a hint of pine. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was so bitter it was almost sour. Strong dank catty hops with a thick sticky malt backbone. Pine sap and mild alcohol burn. Hot and sticky, this beer is a chore to finish and that’s in a good way. Nice carbonation.

snoworsummer (2034) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2013
From a bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes hoppy, very strongly of pine and grapefruit, very musky. Dry feel. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells sweet, like citrus and hemp.

sonnycheeba (3453) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear, bright amber with creamy white head. Aroma is spicy and floral hops, biscuit and cereal malts, citrus fruit, and some floral notes. Flavor is dry biscuit malt base with sharp grassy hop bitterness, grapefruit esters, faint woody, lemon zest, and some spiciness; dry finish with some lingering bitterness. Medium body and low carbonation.

jsmerig (1229) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours a clear reddish golden yellow with active carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of banana and pine. Taste is sweet up front followed by a banana sweetness mixed with a large emergence of hops that lasts stiffly through the finish. Interesting for an imperial. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours yellow with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Has a bit of citrus on the nose. A lot of grapefruit in the tongue. Hides it alcohol well. Finishes with a lot of bitterness. Eh!

callmemickey (2653) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Dark orange body, medium white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, light caramel. Assertive bitterness, medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, and an undercurrent of sweetness. A bit big and unruly, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Pours a clear amber with a decent white head. Smell is pine, malty sweetness. Taste follows. Sticky sweet. Not into it.
