4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ RR. Clear golden with a thick white head and great lacing. Aroma of pine, pineapple, ganja, floral and some light toasty malt. Flavor is perfectly balanced, firm hop bitterness and some smooth malt, no alcohol presence. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry mouth feel. Such a great beer, tons of Simcoe character and super drinkable, my favorite of the day.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 bottle pours pale gold with a medium white head, thin lacing. Aroma is big dank resinous hops, very fresh with pine and skunky hops. Flavor is nicely balanced with bright cereals and pale grass leaving a nice backdrop to the hops which really shine in the finish. Big and flavorful ending dry with more hop flavor than bitterness. Just great.

Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, a decent amount of American hops. Fruity, passion fruit, citrus, apricot and tropical fruits. Malty flavour, hops, quite bitter, some honey. Still manages to be quite light. Light body, malty finish, white bread with pronounced hops notes.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear, golden straw colored, and still. The head is rocky and quick. The aroma is somewhat restrained, but the beer drinks with a full-on assertive lick of Simcoe, with a tropical fruitiness and slick mouthfeel. The silkiness permits for a lighter body, and this drinks like a refreshing cooler for a hot summer porch. (#4752, 8/29/2012)
