3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Over priced. $8 for a 12 oz. I love Simcoe hops, but did not have the same floral/pinney tones that I am use too. Maybe becauese it is not dry hopped? Hops did not pack the punch in an Imperial IPA that I am use too.
There must be separate set of Scandinavian and American standards with hop levels based on the ratings.
Nice alohol/nice malt balance nice blond amber color. A bit high on the carbonation, but not a problem.
I’ll stick to Dogfish head or Founders.

I don’t know... Maybe my love for IPA’s is not what it used to be. I find this too bitter compared to some of the others in the same series. It lacks some balance, but it IS of course a very interesting project with the single hops.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from bottle -- 22/10/10 on the cap. Tasted March 2, 2009. Gorgeous hop aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Great golden color. It states 6.9% alcohol and you can get the bite with the hops on the finish. But it balances nicely with the malty sweetness. It is hard to stop drinking it. I am very impressed and love this beer. Wish it was a little cheaper to be able to enjoy more often, but it is still well worth it.

[Sampled with the trio: Svoger, Svogergylp and Adenila Foged at EBF, 2008.] Although it is long time I’ve tasted this I remember some nice fruity simcoe sweetness, but also rather challenging with stickyness.
