Crushed with Jakebra. Another random pickup that turned into a great success. Nice hoppy nose, with lots of pine. Flavor is even better with a huge rush of bittering and pine hops in the finish that makes it a top-notch IPA. Dug it.

Bottle. Poured a reddish amber color with a medium to large off white head. Aroma was definitely simcoe. Pine and grapefruit; very resiny and delicious. Hints of yeast and caramel. Flavor wasnít quite as stellar for me. Some mild sweet caramel flavor. However, mostly a piney, earthy, citrus hop flavor. Solid bitterness in the finish. Solid flavor overall, I just didnít love it.

Bottle. Big pine and grapefruit nose, big and fat with a touch of lychee and tangerine. Ruby-orange pour with a lacing, fluffy beige head. Bitter taste but tastefully bitter (mostly aroma hopping here), extremely, extremely exotic fruit with light oiliness and a lovely biscuity dryness which lasts for ever. Light woodiness with a medium body. Super! Really starting to see the potential of this hop.

Pours is a nice reddish gold color with a sticky off-white head. Good lacing. Really fresh, juicy hop aroma, quite bitter in the nose. Flavors of grapefruit, citrus, lemon, herbal bitterness, biscuits, and also this nice sweet candy like flavor (almost cherries). This is excellent.

It poured a dark hazy copper color. It had a citrusy like aroma with hints of grapefruit. It had a strong Simcoe hop taste from the verybeginning. It was one of most bitter beers I have ever drank. It was a very good beer overall.

Bottle poured a hazy copper with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of pine resin, carmel, grapefruit and a hint of orange. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, orange, pine and light grapefruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Pours hazy dark orange with a tall frothy off-white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma. Bright hop bitterness at the front, then fruity malts and a pineapple hop finish. Full bodied, yet the creaminess keeps it light.

Unfiltered, hazy amber with a fluffy white head with nice lacing, nice retention with the floaties very much in suspension... Initially a crazy aroma of grapefruit that subsided strangely quickly into an almost woody, earthy aroma... Flavor profile is quite complex with citrus dominating notes of wood, nut, vanilla, and cream... Medium bodied with a long mouthfeel... For me, something was a bit off with the flavor, but it seemed to be the intended result...

Iím a sucker for the Simcoe hop so this is up my alley. Fairly dark for an IPA with a nice thick white head. I get peaches, tangerines, and grapefruit in the aroma. The flavor is astoundingly bitter with a big dose of grapefruit. Further investigation brings tangerine out and as it warms I get the feeling that the malts used are not typical of most IPAís but I donít know that for sure. Pretty freaking great.

From the bottle side by side with the Warrior hop version. Dark copper pour with a smooth off-white head. Pine and citrus hop nose, sweet apricot note, mildly spicy. Soft tropical fruit character to it, sort of like mangos or dried pineapple. Bitterness was more mellow then the Warrior, but still stronger overall. Really enjoyable brew.
