3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice beer. Pours a cloudy orange-ish color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is decidedly hoppy, and citrus sweet. I have brewed several batches with Simcoe, but didn’t associate my results with the sweaty-sweet hop good-flavors of this beer...no matter, it tastes good, so I’ll drink it.
A very drinkable 10% ABV beer.
Got this beer from their "Alpha" 12-pack, graciously delivered from MD by my Dad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle with a little age on it, poured to snifters showing a fairly clarified amber hue, with a modest, bubbly layer of soft white head foam, ring, and spotty lacing. The aroma was a touch of grain, with alcohol and a combo of citrus & resin, that produced kind of a Barleywine-like nose, and some accompanying, syrupy sweetness. The taste added lingering, moderate bitterness, and malt sweetness. Alcohol presence seemed minimized as the hop expression, but still finished with a pleasant bitterness. Lost a good deal of it’s DIPA punch in the cellar.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Amber body with a medium white head. Nice malt base with some caramel, but overall kind of boozy, which takes some attention from the hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. An example of ABV inflation. Does not benefit of the 10% (!). Apricot, grapefruit and alcohol in aroma and taste. Lackluster IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color, clear, with small creamy head. The hop aroma is deep, assuming a phenolic and medicinal character. Full bodied; strong malt flavor, nutty and cereally, with toffee, some crystal, and some vegetables; strong bitterness, with a lot of final hop resins.
Powerful, drinkable, but messy and inelegant; there is something wrong here.

Tap @Bishops Arms, Vasagatan, Sthlm
Deep orange color, steady white head, good lacing. Bready, citrus fruity aroma. Full-bodied. Citrus, bread, pine and lots of alcohol in the flavor. High ABV kicks Simcoe’s ass and the best of its citrusness is covered by booze. But not a bad beer as such, just too heavy.
