"probably my 2nd favorite in the mixer, though i enjoyed them all. grapefruit dominated nose and flavor, but far from overbearing. the malts balance things well. great sessionable ipa.

Aroma: nice nose of pine and grapefruit. Taste: grapefruit up front with malt on the middle. Long finish Overall: I like the bitterness and hop forward profile. Souls use a little more carbonation to highlight the simcoe hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Attractive copper pour with a tremendous white head just like the others in this Deconstructed set. The aroma has a pleasant pine and floral sensation, which I thought would be much bigger but instead it turned out to be just right. The body is medium to full. The richness of the hops is more forward in the taste and they overtake the malt character but don’t diminish it entirely. Very good.

Big puffy head; hazy amber/orange color. Lots of tiny, meandering bubbles. Lovely. Hop aroma is resinous wood, like a finished table. The flavor is pungent, spicy wood. More oak than pine. Has an almost rye-like malt, which is less a balance than it is a redundancy. The feel is thick and rather chunky. This is incredibly woody, and has an oily, resin-y complexion. Not crazily complex, but pretty good.

Leighton (13033) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle at home in CT - picked up at Stateline. Pours clear, deep orange-gold with a frothy, off-white head. Pretty basic aroma with lightly toasted malts, slight biscuits, pine, ripe citrus. Medium sweet flavor with some berry sweetness, light honey, some grain husk, bready and lightly toasted malts, a bit of grass, orange rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pretty well balanced on the finish with lightly sugary. Bready malts, more ripening citrus fruits, bitter pine and grass. Somewhat basic, and not the best expression of Simcoe hops. But it’s drinkable beer,

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Another great looking IPA.   Moderate bitterness, smooth, but with very moderate flavors of pink grapefruit and pine resin.   Did I mention smooth?   Has a fairly assertive bitterness level, but its not salivating.   This is one of those that certainly would pair well with a sweeter hopped IPA.   However, as is, it would be considered a solid PNW style IPA.   Clean and bitter, and even a bit chewy.

jflopsu (719) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours a dark rust orange. Has a strong floral hop and light citrus aroma. Taste has a mix of fruity malt, citrus hops, and a lot of grains. Very watered down in flavor. A dry and light bitter aftertaste.

Amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a little pine and grapefruit. Flavor is pleasantly bitter with a dry finish. Just a touch of caramel malt.
