AWISLguy (2082) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Can from Brennan’s. Pours a pale orange with a white head. Aroma has citrus and pine. Taste is of grapefruit, fresh fruits and pine. Somewhat resinous but quite light and crisp. Finishes bitter and sweet. Seems very sessionable.

clear yellow gold pour. Aroma cheesey hops, dirty grass, slight orange. Tastes bitter lettuce. Sorta dry finish brings out the bitterness.

Can shared at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephan’s. Gold with small white head. Loads of pine hops with some resin and sweet caramel malt. Decent.

boisebeerguy (153) - boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Probably one of the best IPA’s I can find year round. Everything in this beer is well balanced. I do not know why this beer is not more sought after, but I am glad I can get it.

From a can. The pour is a dark gold with a white head. A carmel bitter lime taste.

nickd717 (3860) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Draft pours clear copper with a one finger white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, grapefruit (but it’s not purple!). Medium dry, hoppy on the finish, citrusy. Resinous and lively. Pretty good.

thetmaxx (870) - West Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Can from tavour. Nice thick frothy head. The simcoe really jumps out on this beer. I’m drinking out back while it’s colder outside than in the refrigerator! Flavor is fantastic! Excellent amount of bitterness making this really drinkable for the abv!

JohnGalt1 (1215) - , Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2015
this is a very good IPA.... Great 2 finger clingy head... nice lacing... nice clear golden color. Tropical fruitbowl in the nose... pithy citrus zest and a dollop of pine. Flavor mirrors the nose and despite the great hop flavors, it never verges into bracing bitterness... just enough pale malt to help the hops coat the palate.... yummy and very drinkable. Body is a lite/medium with the expected carbonation.

Draft. Pale yellow color, thick lace. Flavors of melon, pineapple and a bit of milk chocolate. This is good Simcoe. Nice but not spectacular.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ @tasting ][ $0 ][ Shot glass ][ 08.15.15 ]
transparent gold, fizzy white head no effervescence. Heavy pine and orange nose, considerable sweetness, bit resinous. Sweeter flavor, very standard American IPA, overly sweet, candy orange and cotton candy. Sticky.
