#100- Pours a dark caramel color with a small, lingering white head. Smell is pine with lemon citrus notes. Spice of a quad with the bitterness of a good ipa and hints of pine aftertaste. Bitterness lasts long after the last sip. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and extremely sticky. A more spice and a little sweeter than I’m used to in an IPA.

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.
