Bottle at Max’s. Pours amber with white head. Nose and taste of caramel malts, hops and white pepper. A little too malty.

341ml bottle? Poured a clear copper color with a medium sized head - dissipates to thin, but lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, notes of hops, slightly sweet and mild malts. Flavor was hoppy, with a well balanced malt. Straightforward brew.

Pours golden-to-copper, form a small, frothy head. Good lacing, though. Intense c-hops aroma, with really few caramel in the way. Taste is a bit more herbal than expected, though it’s still dominated by citrus hops. Quite thick. Wouldn’t call it a must amongst IPA, but it’s certainly a success. Great balance between malt and hops.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Bouteille 341 ml. 6.4%. Couleur ambrée, mousse beige pâle. Arômes de houblon et caramel et herbes fraîches. Goût de houblon et de citron en raison du houblon Cascade et caramel. Finale amère et sucrée.. Excellente qualité.

Well, this FINALLY made it to my town. 341 mL bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium offwhite head. Fair head retention and good lacing. Aroma of caramel with citrus and herbal hop notes. The taste is citrus hops with an herbal bite, nutty notes and caramel malts. Medium bodied.

Aroma : Lots of pine and citrus from the Cascade hops. Maybe a little caramel thrown in. Somehow, it smells a little metallic but not to the point of being unpleasant. Appearance : Beer is clear, orange amber. About an inch of brownish foam that slowly dissipates and leaves little lacing. Taste : A little fruity. Well balanced. The piney and citrusy hops shine throught but it’s still not too bitter. I can still taste the metallic taste but it disappears as the beer warms. Mouthfeel : Carbonation is good and the beer is thick enough. Overall : A great effort from Simple Malt. Not the best IPA around but a decent and fairly refreshing one that I quite enjoy drinking.

Thanks Lubiere. Not a bad bitter, but overated nevertheless. Overcarbonated is an obstacle to drinkability, there is cascade orange taste there, hop aroma.

Aroma is at once citrusy and bready - like scones made with orange zest. Lightly astringent citrus zest hop character translates nicely to the flavor as well. Fairly rich, thick mouthfeel. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Meilleur que la simple IPA, un peu plus goûteuse...seulement 1 IBU de différence!

Real nice! Pours dark gold orange with fine white top. Lemony and citrus aromas plus sweetness. Taste flowery hop and fruit and citrus. A bit dimensional, with fruit of maybe muscat grape. Some pine. Starts a bit lush floral-fruity and ends a bit more herbal-grassy showing a little heat from the alcohol. Solid full feel.
