Bottle thanks to my Summer Secret Santa! Pours a clear gold with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a decent amount of pine with a hint of onion with a grain backbone. Flavor has strong pine hops with notes of grass and onion backed by a nice light grain note.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
500ml bottle. thanks to baker. bottled date of 06262012. pre-race beverage carbload... pours a slightly hazy, mostly transparent pale slightly darker than cider hue and topped with a medium soapy white head that gently recedes, leaving a frothy film around the edges... the aroma consists of a medium citrus focus adjoined by notes of grass. pale biscuity malts provide a backbone but the hops play the dominant role. a light perceived sense of bitterness offered by the grassy tones also take play... flavors are more of the same with crisp citrus overtones again meshing with an almost equal degree of grassiness. clean crackery biscuity malt provides support. the finish leaves a light bitter sensation on the palate that prolongs and extends after consumed. light to medium bodied, more so the former, with crisp semi-lively carbonation. would gladly have again.

skmikeg (973) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a nice golden orange with a foamy white head with tight carbonation and nice lacing. Aroma is of pine resin, spruce, cedar, orange and tangerine, some grass, and some biscuit malts. Taste is of pine resin, spruce, cedar, orange, tangerine, freshly cut grass/weeds, biscuit malts, and some sweet malts in the background. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeeel, nice lively carbonation, and a long bitter,but well balanced, champagne like dry finish. Overall, a very tasty and refreshing APA that is great on a warm day.

13 July 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is a bit resins and skunky. Not impressed. Thin body and a bit fizzy. Tastes of wet dead grass, light cereal malt, faintly skunky. Not impressed at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StefanSD (2183) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 13, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma features oranges, weeds, grass and a bit of bong-water. The flavor is similar to the nose with oranges in the forefront and peaches, green weeds and limes filling in the back and sides. The malt base is dominated by biscuit and the palate is thick and viscous with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Top shelf.

500 mL bottle, shared with Greg from CK. Pretty clear orange amber pour with a nice looking white frothy head. Gorgeous nose with huge earthy notes of dirt and loam, stunning classic Simcoe characteristics of pine sap, spruce needles, and rich, dark tangerine citric qualities. The flavor brings more of the same, with a lovely hop bouquet that is oh so drinkable. An awesome APA, second only to the likes of HF Edward, but in that same tier.

Bottle to snifter at home. Poured a beautiful glowing orange, with a fluffy white head. Smell is loaded with tropical fruits, flowers, peaches, and tangerines. Taste is a touch more pine/grass forward, but still as floral notes, and flavors of tropical fruits but the ending bitterness is quite different; almost grapefruit peel tasting. Still, very smooth, but definitely has an IPA-like bitterness. Medium mouthfeel with champagne-like carbonation. Pretty damn good APA, and Im glad I got a chance to try this one. Cheers!
