Dark cloudy golden with a white head. Rich and very American hop flavour that offers everything - peach comes first, with pine making a strong appearance. Green grass, roses, Earl Grey tea, grapefruit and lime follows. Flavour is dry, hoppy, and of course bitter. Mouth coating and long lasting.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2009 The simcoe citrus and grapefruit flavor make it different, but as enjoyable, as some of the best IPAís Iíve had (stone, two-hearted) etc. If finishes very crisp and refreshing, Everything I want from this style and more. Rerated due to the over-the-top hoppiness. Not the most balanced IPA, but thatís why I love it.

Brassy amber body beneath a thick white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with traces of caramel sweetness. The hops assault the tonge with their bitterness without any help from the caramel to reduce the effect. Bitterness -- in a good way -- is the hallmark of this brew. If itís perhaps one note, that is one helluva note.

Poured a hazy copper amber color with a nice thick foamy head. The aroma of hops was easily detected. There was a strong hop bit that rolled into a nice bitter finish that lasted. There was a subtle sweetness that came through the flavor as the beer warmed slightly. This was an excellent IPA, just as good as some Imperial or double IPAs. Excellent beer!!!!!!!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy amber colour topped with a rich lasting white foam. Big sweaty lychee hop aroma with touches of blood oranges and pine-needles. Hop aromatic and bitter flavour of grapefruit, blood oranges, pine-needles and grass. Smooth mouthfeel. Long bitter of grapefruit and lychee with a subtle sweetness from peaches. Probably one of the best IPAís Iíve sampled to date...just perfect... Light years better than their DIPA.

From bottle... poured beautiful cloudy copper. Had some sediment. Aroma was initially hoppy and earthy, but also had a slight scent of armpit sweat.Tasty, very bitter. Has bite from the moment it hits the tongue to the moment it hits the throat. Very nice... one of the most satisfying palates. Iíve had better IPAs (this one was mainly disappointing on aroma and slightly flavor), but I throw down a sixer of these any summer evening.

Copper colored beneath a frothy white head. Aroma is full of fresh hops, notes of grapefruit and orange peel. Soft on the palate with nice citrusy hop flavors. Bitter without being overpowering.

In the glass it lies amber orange with a coarse off white head. The aroma is saturated by hoppy notes. Pine, grapefruit, fresh red berries, and a nice sweet malty caramel base. This sensation becomes even more apparent in the mouth. Loads of aromatic American hops, slight toasted notes and a balancing sweetness from the malt. All brought to life by a generous amount of carbonation and a body befitting the style.

Tap. Pours a clear golden-orange with a medium head. Aroma is fruity hops with a slight citrus characteristic as well. Taste is the same with some slight caramel malt sweetness right at the end. Finishes with a sharp hop bitterness and no detectable alcohol....Very enjoyable.
