BlazerT (159) - POLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Cooper with medium, densed, white head. Low tomedium head retention, medicore lacing. Medium sweet malts aroma, candy, hoppy character - piney, light floral notes, light citrus (grapefruit) notes, little tropical fruits. Taste is definetely malty (caramel), not so sweet, as it was supposed from the nose. Some resinous and floral notes. Medium to full body, smooth texture, soft carbonation, finish is bitter. In overall nice DIPA, not a hoppy bomb, but well balanced and drinkable.

Kauge (562) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Sip (€ 5.30). BB 10/2016. Hazy amber colour. Head is off-white and huge, big-bubbled, leaves scattered lacing and retains well. Nose... ooooooohh... I can’t help it, I love Simcoe. Musky, sweet, ripe, tropical... pretty awesome. Taste goes in the same lines, it’s very potent and full, but the sweetness manages to outweigh the bitterness although there is a lot of it in the lingering finish. Body is lighter side of medium, carbonation flat, somewhat oily on the palate. No alcohol detectable - excellent drinkability. It’s a wonderful, potent IIPA.

graham_murphy (401) - - FEB 14, 2015
A thick, balanced malt as you expect from mikkeller. This beer makes simcoe look good. Quite sweet (not too much biterness at all) in the malt and very fruity (pineapple, orange) in the hops. Winning me over.
