The single most sought after American hop of the last decade, Simcoe has been used in every medal winning IPA at the GABF for the last 3 years, and that includes our own. The aromas are pretty telling; Huge pine, grapefruit, tropical mango, and a certain je ne sais guos that makes the hop instantly identifiable to all modern day hopheads. The flavor backs that up with a big rush of ripe fruits leading to a dry but not too intense bitterness. While this will certainly appeal to many IPA drinkers, it is a pale ale, so remember try this before an IPA.

On tap,hazy golden color big fluffy head that dissappears quickly leaving lots of lace on glass. Smells of pine,grapefruit,and orange. Tastes of slightly sweet malts and grapefruit. Light to medium body, slippery mouthfeel, nice carbination and a dry bitter finish. Good ,easy to drink pale with a big fresh hop taste and aroma.

Tap@Brewery pours golden straw with a fluffy lasting lace. Huge Simcoe orange, mandarin, seed-fruit nose, nice silky mid-palate, ending in tongue-piercing bitterness. Overall, itís got a great balance between hops and malt.

Tap at the brewery Feb 2012-pours lightly hazy orange with a nice white soapy head and good lacing from the start. bigtime floral nose-lots of citrus and bright fruit-tropical flavors follow suit with lots of bright citrus-wow, what alot of flavor packed into this little beer. again, cant say it enough tons of flavor here in a small package-thats my kind of brew. lovely session pale ale with tons of fresh hop character akin to the best pales brewed from Alpine (i know i compare with them alot). Again, Salute to you Erway!

On tap at La Cumbre. Mmm that smells great, itís not actually dominated by the hops either. There is a solid malt backbone. Caramel. Fresh pine and resiny hoppiness. Flavor is a nice mix of malt and hoppiness. Iím getting some manago and a hint of banana in the finish.
