4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color with thick frothy head. Aroma is super piney hops...so thats what simcoe hops smell like... Any malt is masked by the hops on steriods in this beer. Quite bitter which is OK by me. Medium bodied with a lively mouthfeel and lingering spiciness. I can still smell the hops a day later. Iíll have another please.

Poured a copper color with a small off white head. Sweet, piney, and citrus hop aroma. Nice bitter hops, light malts, the bitter citrus really stands out here. Nearly reminded me of the Cascade IPA, but it just fell short by a little. Beautiful.
