COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love the piney, fruity flavors of Simcoe® hops. This is a classic pale ale, with a generous dry hopping of Simcoe®. Because of the restrained malt profile, the hops really pop, like flora in spring.

Spruce nose, delightfully strong. Clear amber, no head. Spruce and pine flavor. Piney, sessionable, and not overdone. Fresh and green, little backbone, but that’s ok.

HogTownHarry (6373) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Slightly hazy fairly deep amber with a huge lasting creamy/fizzy whitish head. Smells like ... Simcoe; catty, pungent, some alcohol, a bit mild. Taste - follows, milder even, a touch roasty, leafy, dry .... average body, mild carbonation, fairly quick dry, slightly earthy finish. Nothing special, but very, very sessionable.

drowland (7772) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
8/6/11. 12oz bottle. Faintly hazy orange pour with a small off-white head that fades but laces a ton. Fruity, slightly sour hop aroma with cattiness and seltzer. Decent, but light, flavor with grassiness, a touch of lemon peel, and graininess. Meh.
