Outstanding. A more-or-less perfect DIPA. Terrific hops, sticky resin-y, no annoying maltiness fucking it all up. Completely excellent.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Jsut about everything you could ever want or need in a simcoe ber. Tongue slashing bitterness, huge citrus and pine, incredible. Now they just gotta make an amarillo blen, or a mixture of citra and simcoe.
Full bottle review-
650 ml ottle. Amber pour, nice white head. INstant smell of the sweet, almost nougaty scent of the base beer carrying a massive overload of sticky, tropical, piney, resinous, citrus hops. The flavor is an unyilding barrage of citrus and tropical fruits, pine, and resin. Medium to high bitterness, total cohesiveness. Awesome.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Loads of lemon and orange citrus with a decent caramel malt backbone. Another pipeworks homerun.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Dark orange color, hazy with little sediment. Two fingers of creamy fluffy off-white / light tan colored head.
S: Amazing aroma on this. Pine hops, grapefruit, candy like fruit, mango, some dank. Hint of plastic.
T: A lot of piney grapefruit, floral. Some dankness.
M: Dry and crisp (love that) with some resinous hop bitterness and just a hint of alcohol warmth on the finish.
O: Love Pipeworks, Simcoe and Citra are my favorite Ninja’s so far. Love going to Binny’s weekly seeing what goods they come out with.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy amber thick and unclear with a white head. Aroma and flavor bring huge sweet skunky and piney weed notes that longer with a maltiness as opposed to dry bitterness. The hops are still dominant and delicious.

Super fresh bottle, hazy gold pour. I’m guessing this one is so much better than older releases juDging by rates. Notes of dank simcoe, tropical fruit, light malt, and pine. Excellent ipa from Pipeworks.
