Draft from the taproom. Yep, that is Simcoe, alright. Big fruity nose; lots of mango and peach and papaya and even a hint of pineapple on top of resiny citrus. Taste adds more resin. Sticky palate. Hoptastic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Tasted on 6/5/13 on draft at the brewpub during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor. Pours light pale orange with an average white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is nice and hoppy with some spicy yeast and caramel bread malt. The flavor is really nicely balanced spicy yeast and bitter, citrus and lightly dank hops. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long lightly dusty bitter hops and spicy yeast finish.

Keg at Torst - Brooklyn, NYC. Pours clear, deep gold with a fine, creamy white head. Plenty of Belgian yeast in the nose with bits of grapefruit and melon. Medium to big sweet flavor, nice and rich but still somewhat dry citrus, mostly melon and grapefruit, a bit of booze kick. Medium to full bodied with fine, frothy carbonation. Mild warmth to finish, some pale bread, Belgian yeast, a bit of white sugar, ripening melon and citrus. Pretty tasty.
