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.

Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has lots of pine and just a hint of grapefruity citrus. Flavor is mostly pine and spicy hop notes...touches of tea and light malt backing. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry spicy/tea bitter finish.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity citric hop aroma with light sweet malty notes. The flavor is hoppy, flowery, and light fruity, with just a hint of pine. Decent.

RyanK (274) - Rhode Island, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pale ale loaded with Simcoe hops. Pours an orange like amber with a large foamy white head. Smells of sweet and piney hops, grapefruit. Light and refreshing, fruit flavor hits at first the the piney hops give it a nice dry and bitter finish on the tongue. Lots of carbonation other than that watery and not much more to it. Nice sessionable ale for warm weather.

Fairly opaque amber color. Thick foamy white head leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is strong grapefruit, as if freshly cut. The taste is balanced and I don’t find anything really coming through, seems a bit watery, refreshing. Finish is clean and crisp..

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2012
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a large to medium sized white head. Sweet malt, candy, but not much hop aroma. Where’s the Simcoe? Sweet and malty. Sweet malt, light earthy bitterness. Would be a fine beer if I didn’t come into it expecting Simcoe. Doesn’t deliver on that front.

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a lasting white head. Nothing spectacular but a pretty decent pale ale.

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - APR 30, 2012
12-oz bottle in Brooklyn with Erica. Pours nicely into shaker: color starts off dark amber on the bottom and a lighter shade on top, but the bottom color races up to the top, creating a lot of head as it does so. I think the label on the bottle matches this color phenomenon exactly. Pretty cool. Aroma and taste are of fresh wet hops. Nothing utterly remarkable about this beer, but a good balance and noticeable floral/citrus hop profile, combined with a light to medium mouthfeel, make it an enjoyable, easy drinker for the spring.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle. This erupted a bit. The head is simply volcanic, bubbling with big white foam. The beer is effortlessly carbonated, and boiling over with sweet, citric aromas. It drinks with a tart, orange-laden fruitiness, intermingled with a musty twist. Quite refreshing, yet biting enough for the serious hopheads. (#4578, 4/29/2012)

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle: Pours a clear light orange with a medium white head, nose has citrus, hay and pine, starts and ends bitter with a fresh hay ending, mellow carbonation, light bodied.

Draught from mark bar. Pours a light amber. Nice head and lacing. Floral aroma. Clean hops taste. Best Peak I’ve had.
