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).

stefannilssons (1300) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2014
Det här var inte helt dumt, smaken var kraftfull med toner av tallbarr, lakrits, trä och grapefrukt. kroppen var stabil men balansen satt inte helt på plats, kanske så sken alkoholen igenom lite.

Bottled:
Pours clear amber with a large head. Aroma is hops and lots of fruit; pine apples, oranges and lemons. Flavour is really bitter and has notes of hops,licorice and alcohol; a little bit too much alcohol.

esox (969) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Botteld. Pale amber color, slightly cloudy. Frothy, very lacy head. Looks fantastic. Aroma is full of fresh tropical fruits, like peaches and passion fruits. It has notes of currant leaves and some pine needles. Pale, slghtly toasted maltiness and medium dark caramel backbone. Powerful hop punch, very bitter all the way. Sturdy body and caramel sweetness balance it and overall it is quite round. Resinous, piney hop bitterness lingers for long time. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Medium to full body, velvety soft texture. Very good but slightly one-dimensional, maybe. Almost too easy regardles of the high bitterness level.
