Draft. Poured into a pint glass a clear amber orange color with a slight off white head. Nice aroma of bitter citrus rind. The taste is quite nice with an abundance of citrus notes with a slight malty backbone. The mouthfeel is medium/light with more carbonation than I thought it would have. Some lace left on the glass. Overall, decent but really no different than most other pretty well done apaís.

bluemooner (598) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Pours hazy orange with a frothy white head and a lot of lacing. Aroma is strong citrus and piney hops. Flavor is pine, citrus, sweet caramel, nad some apple with a very nitter hop finish. A very good, very hoppy APA.

Super fruity and perfumy. Hops are rather unique and pretty tasty. I would have guessed Amarillo.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Pours hazy orange with nice fluffy white head that laced all the way down. Aroma is very hoppy with a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste is citrus with slight apple notes and gets a bit a sweet and finishes bitter. A nice strong and hoppy APA.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Tap at brewpub. Pours a semi-cloudy, cheddar yellow. Aroma is new-cardboard-infused grapefruit. Flavor is new cardboard, grapefruit, and bitter orange. Average mouthfeel. Bizarre foretaste but it evens out in the end.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Wow, amazing aromoa on this one. Lots of fruit, orange, grapefruit and pine. Wonderfully bitter and biting. A great IPA from TH, right on pace with M.M and the Simcoe Pale ale.

illidurit (2113) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Pour: Growler to pint glass. Nice light amber color with a huge fluffy off-white head that leaves some thick lacing. Really dense resinous foam displays great retention.

Nose: Sweet citrus, extreme tangerine and oranges and maybe even some lime. Very bright with no trace of malt.

Mouth: Tastes like hop juice to be honest. Pineapple, a light spritz of sweet orange, and a wonderful back-end orange-peel bitterness that lingers nicely. This is just the kind of pale ale I like. Itís not too malty, rather it derives both its sweetness and its bitterness from hops. Occasional soapiness but nothing too bad. Medium bodied and refreshing, with moderate carbonation and huge drinkability. One of the best APAs Iíve had.

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Hops everywhere, with a fresh, west coast flavor. Bitter hop aroma, and the flavor has grapefruit and pine. Light malt, a successfully unbalanced beer that is focused on the hops.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Growler pours a hazed orange yellow with a big and sustaining white head, nice lace. Oh boy, I smell Rio Star Red grapefruit! I love the aroma. The flavor has the hops all over it, focusing on the grapefruit and perhaps lemon. The malt is really sort of playing second fiddle, but starts to show more sweetness as it warms up. The palate is alive and well. Overall, this is fine!

Hazy gold color with a large head. Aroma of citrusy hops and lime. Flavor is still strong on the citrus, but changes to tangerine. Just enough malt to keep it from tasting like pureed hops. This may be my first Simcoe-only beer, and I like it! Simple yet effective.
