Enjoyed in line at New Glarus. Amber colored pour. Big citrus hop nose. Excellent taste but really bitter finish, bringing the rating down a bit for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Lightly hazy peach-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aromatic highlights are peaches, muskiness, marmalade and a medley of tropical fruits. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor offers sweet honey mingling nicely with heavy, rindy, acrid bitterness. Finishes bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medeium off-white head, creamy and fairly slow to dissipate with nice lacing. Aroma is big and room filling, dank, tropical, passionfruit, grapefruit, guava, armpits. Light sweet and medium bitter, really juicy, dank and sweaty, tropical fruits. Medium body and a soft mouthfeel. A bit of a harsh and boozy finish, otherwise excellent.

Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is dank with hoppiness, but you can smell the strong malt base. Taste is sweet malt and balanced bitterness, and the aroma keeps coming on. Great DIPA!

22oz bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is of honey, citrus, dank hops, and biscuit. Damn, that smells good. Taste is dank. So very dank. There is also a lot of honey, juicy hops, and citrus. Has a biscuity malt backbone. Lingering dankness. Holy hell, this is good. Mouthfeel is light and soapy. Drinks easy, and it tastes good. They honey really adds something.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at bad apple. You can smell this one from pretty far away. Aroma is lovely, fresh mango, apricot, clementines. Flavor continues on that fresh tropical fruit buzz however the hops and malt leave a fair amount of sweetness behind. Just not bitter enough here. There’s also some kerosene notes in the flavor that are distracting. Very oily. Body is pretty big. After a few sips it gets laboring. Fair amount of alcohol comes through as well. I’d like Simcoe to make a bigger presence here. Aroma is the best part. Could be cleaned up a bit but has promise.
