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.

glennmastrange (2424) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Light to moderate aromas of roasted for the malt, pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of wood and pepper. Head is average size, frothy turning creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Damn, this smells good. Like an East Coast IPA. Unfortunately the flavor doesn’t quite keep up.

IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Nice golden hazy color with slightly orange head. Major hoppage on the nostrils. Fresh cut grass, some orange peel, apricot in the background. Head dissipated fairly quickly. Taste has plenty of Simcoe hops, which ovbiously is their focal point here. Unfortunately, like popcorn, in the taste is weaker than the smell. Taste reveals some seltzer component that just is off putting. Hardly no malt sweetness at all. Finish is a mild bitterness that slightly undertones the poor quality here. Good but not great.

Draft @ Capone’s. Golden yellow pour with tan head. Pine and citrus, hop aromas. Earthy, and grassy almost dank and pine flavors.

Sweet stong hop aroma. Hazy orange color with a large white head. Mild sweet and slightly bitter beginning that fades in the finish. Light palate.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle notched "best by 8.11." Pours hazy and bright orange with a 2-finger rocky beige head. Aromas of spicy, sweet pine, citrus peel, and sweet caramel malt and dough. The flavor is sweet pine, a little spicy and mildly bitter, with some tropical fruit in the finish. Thin body. This was good, but the flavor fell a bit flat for me, and the body detracted as well.

stangger (604) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Floral, citrus aroma. Nice. Clean, refreshing taste... simcoe hops are strong without being overly bitter. Good summer pale. Some malt backbone. On tap at town docks in new hampshire.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2011
6 pack that seemed to disappear from my fridge. Pretty sessionable, not the cleanest simcoe taste, but for the price is was refreshing and easy to drink.

Nice floral aroma. Pours a clear copper with a nice pillowy white head. Flavor is light, slightly bitter. The beer is fairly flavorless, but a decent session beer.
