Simcoe Sensation is a seductive brew with succulent simcoe hops and a splash of sublime spunk. When you pop the top, an aroma of pine, resin and grapefruit with permeate the air.

Bottle. Light golden body with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine. Hint of biscuit and caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Hop taste of grapefruit and citrus with some grass. Aroma was bold enough, but the thinner body (not surprising in a session ipa) was a bit of a weak backbone for the hop flavors.

milewide (1732) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottled on 5/12/13 and drank on 5/21/13. Fresh! Pine and herbal aroma and taste. Very bitter finish! Label says it is a "session IPA" ---but no mention of ABV on either bottle or website.

Mittenator (1605) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Gold with some particulate and a medium beige head. Strong simcoe and piney aromas. Hops and a little malt. A surprising amount of flavor for a session although the finish is pretty watery.

Bottle from trade wirh umich03jm, thanks Jason! Pours brownish gold with a clingy pure white head. Aroma is grass and mango. Pale malt backbone with a fair amount of grassy hop bitterness.

flatmatt (1288) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours a fully hazy pale amber golden with a large white head. Strong pine hop aroma, resinous, with grassy and citrus backings. Similar flavors, more grassy than citrusy, with just a hint of malt. A simple but good pale ale.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours lighter golden with lacing white head. Nose is flowers, citrus, limey rinds, grapefruits, spice and some toasty malts. Flavor is similar with some piney hop character as well as some minty pines. This was a couple months old but still pretty good. Wish there were more explosive hops and less toasty malts but I never really like toasty malts in hoppy beers.

radarsock (1116) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle supplied by WillForRunBeer. Many thanks! To short-stemmed, it pours a clear light orange with which a sudsy, whitish head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of peas, hops, sunflower seeds, wet dog, poppies, and American yeast, Tastes the same with the addition of minced garlic, basement, and pale malt by swallow.

My second Odd Side brew. A pretty decent beer. You can for sure have a few of these in a row. Wouldn’t mind getting more.

12oz bottle from mix and match pack, Kalamazoo Michigan's drake party center. Golden yellow pour with half inch of bright white head. Lots of bubbles rising from the glass bottom, dense lacing covered the glass as the beer went down. Strong sweet floral hop aroma that's very skunky, honey scent too. Very very light, fluffy mouthfeel, a little watery. Pretty light taste too. Sweet Grapefruit-y and floral hop flavor, bitter malt that has a grapey flavor mixed with some burton saltiness. Overall more bitter than sweet. Light easy drinking session IPA. The skunky, grapiness is very unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
