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.

Pours a light copper color with a full head with pretty heavy lacing. Flavor profile is clean as advertised; malt is subdued and showcases the Simcoe, normally an IPA or DIPA kind of hop. It does well with this style without overwhelming as could be the case.

ScipioA (359) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Clear orange with vigorous carbonation and a tan head. Aromas are pine and weed showing off the danker side of hops, with a little alcohol as it warms. Flavors are fairly similar but with a slightly caramel base. Aftertaste is bitter and caramel. The beer froths up into a foam if you swish it around, but otherwise a fairly light body. Tasty single-hop.

Bottle to glass. Spring grass and slight pine. Pours a copper-gold with ivory head. Taste is overt pine with slight citrus. Fresh and clean with moderate low hop bitterness.

Profumi classici x una apa agrumati e soprattutto citrici in questo caso, al gusto ottimo corpo e una straordinaria beverinità. Ottima birra. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Nice grapefruit and pine aroma at first but disapates quickly.. Grapefruit and pine flavor with earthiness. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and pine linger with earthiness and a little grain.
