3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle
I am not sure why but this release did not resonate with me at all. It was a fair deal - enough that I am willing to try more of their lineup - but not remarkable. Given the choice I would gone with a four pack of Headhunter instead. Still, maybe it was a bad bottle which means eventually I will need to revisit it.
Aroma / Appearance - The coppery transparent base bubbles and sparkles. An icy white head looks like a fresh dusting of overnight snow. Pine cones, mangoes, grapefruit, and other flavors are sharp. Even so I somehow found it hard to get excited. It wasnít off but I canít put my finger on the reason.
Flavor / Palate - Mangoes and pine trees warm the throat immediately. A dry bitterness is harsh on the palate. For $6.99 this is a full bodied and robust beer from a brewery that wasnít on my radar until now. Maybe this summer when it is too hot for the stouts Iíll get some more of their releases.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love this beer! Drinks so easy to be high alcohol. I donít find the alcohol to be overpowering as some have said because when itís fresh you really can taste citrusy pears and piney apples! one of my favorites.

Surprisingly good. You canít hide the alcohol at 11+% but the simcoe balances it well. Not too sweet and some nice citra flavor. Well executed triple IPA.

Mouthfeel is great with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a great hop bitterness following and a warm ethanol finish. Overall this brew is fantastic.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Itís pungent, intense hoppy aroma, but also lots of alcohol, so thereís a chemical burn to the smell. Taste is great, sweet and bitter, intense.
