Amber, bright. The aroma has earthy hops and caramelly malts...not very bright. Medium bitterness and some more of those bland caramelly malts.

Bottle. Pours clear dark orange with a thin white head. Piney hop aroma, with some grassy hay as well. Thin bodied, maybe suffering from aggressive filtration, the flavor of the simcoe does however hit the spot with some earthiness and light citrus. Finishes sharp bitter, could use more malt to temper the edges.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Can. An easy drinking, crisp India Pale Ale. Great hop flavor from start to finish. No sweetness and very little citrus if any, pure hop taste. Nice bitter finish that lingers just right.

LinusStick (3234) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Wow! Itís been a while since an IPA knocked me off my feet. This was downright fabulous. Aroma was very thick and full. Strong resinous hop aromas. Citrus, grassy and lots of hay. Pour was a nice deep gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was close to perfect. All hops from beginning to end. Strongly unbalanced (which is how I love my IPAs). Strong grapefruit, pine and grass. No malt to muddy things up. Nice carbonation down to the last drop.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Average appearance. Crisp, earthy, hoppy taste. Smells like your typical IPA. Good IPA.

Poured from the bottle. Aroma is nice. All the hops come through very fresh. Color is nice and clear with a great head and lacing down the glass. Palate is clean and bitter, light malt and a thick oily finish make the palate dynamic and enjoyable. Overall this is a beer I enjoy anytime itís shoved into a folly pack.

seymour (1895) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Tasted bottle at The Handle Bar, St Louis, Missouri, USA into standard pint glass. Pours a predictable clear, golden-amber color with fluffy white head. Aggressive hops aroma, Iím thankful for some unique Simcoe instead of entirely Cascades. Spicy, woodsy, citrusy but not overly grapefruity. Well-rounded malt sweetness stands up to the hops bitterness as well as could be expected. You canít really speak of balance with this kind of beer, but it is undoubtedly a well-crafted IPA.

strongpieman (1648) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bomber. Gold to amber color, clear, nice white foamy head. Strong floral hop aroma, bitter.... Good flavorful ipa. Would recommend and have again.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bomber->tulip: Pours a large, white, frothy head atop a clear, dark amber body. Aroma of hops, and quite a delicious one at that--very refreshing. The body is thin and bitter, finishing on the back of the throat, leaving an ever-so-mild taste of hops in the mouth long after the sip. This is a very clean and crisp beer that does not confuse or muddle your senses and is somewhat approachable by those who are not crazy about IPAs.
