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.

Boliv (1148) - 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.

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 (2428) - 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.

6er from Food Town in Lansdale. Pours dark straw toward orange with off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel malt, mangoey fruit, peppery florals. Tastes crisp, with a subdued but pleasant Simcoe note, florals, caramel malt, and tropical mangoey and tangerine notes.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2011
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.

puboflyons (1876) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2011
From a bottle with an expiration date of August 2011. Pours copper-amber and cloudy with a generous foamy, long lasting head. Lots of pine and floral hops in the aroma with a more muted maltiness. The body is about medium. The taste is well-bittered with those Simcoe hops bringing out a fresh, citrus-like flavor in the end.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange, quite bubbly, and with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of strawberries, piney hops, citrus fruit, sweet malt and some herbal notes -- quite lovely. Flavour of sweet malt, piney hops, some fruit, herbs and a pleasant dry bitter finish -- refreshing and tasty. Average bodied. I love Simcoe hops and beers that use them and this one is no exception -- a nice surprise and a joy to drink, well done.

Had a few of these with matt. great flavor, fresh juicy piney simcoe. An ultra sessionable ale. I’m a simcoe nut so this beer really rocked.
