Growler acquired in trade with tytoanderso (as part of the Growler Swap v1) - thanks! Poured a medium and lightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, and I was getting a spiciness as well. Tastes of citrus, pine with some caramel and maltiness. Nice hoppiness.

Doesnít get much better than this! Pours hazy amber with white head, and aroma is full of wonderful hops. Taste is chewy full of piny, resiny, citrusy hops with a bit of malt sweetness that flows into a huge lasting bitterness. Hope to see this again!

Near crystal clear orange honey colored body. Weed-like stenchy (almost moldy) nose of twigs, pine needles, dry, fresh cut pine wood, and dry, grassy simcoe hops. Pineapple? Not so much, but I actually donít get any pineapple in the Weyerbacher Double Simcoe either. Fresh, vibrant evergreen needles and dry, parched, crusty sap round this one out. A really solid, very hoppy pale ale that smells like an IPA. I donít think it really deserves to be this high up on the APA list, but itís still a solid pale ale for sure.

Growler from Stine! Thanks dude. A great aroma that is a mixture of fresh grapefruit, pine trees, herb (weed) and bready malt. Pours a golden amber color with a lasting thin head and awesome lace. Straight bitter hops up front with a great balance of caramel and bread. Flavors of grapefruit, pine and pepper are present and create a long lingering dry finish that seem to last forever. Full of flavor, yet amazingly easy to drink. This stuff is great.

Poured a lightly hazy amber color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, a bit of toffee, and light toast as well. Taste was light caramel up front, more pine, light citrus, resin, and a dry, bitter, grapefruit finish.

Copper color with a medium head. Incredibly floral aroma that was nearly a dead ringer for the local Como Zoo Observatory gardens! Pretty much the same for the taste. This may be my first big experience with Simcoe hops, and I must say Iím a fan. Just stupidly drinkable, though a little more malt to balance it out would probably make it more to my liking. If you want a solid and smashing pint of tasty hops, this is for you!

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler! Pours a lightly hazy golden with a smaller bubbly off white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of a ton of mixed citrus, pine, caramel, grainy maltiness, toffee...great fresh Simcoe hop aroma. Flavor of up front American hops, mix of citrus, pine, grapefruit...also getting a good amount of malt flavor though too. Grains, caramel, Cheerios. Nice beer!

sampled from a growler, thanks to holdenn for it! pours dense golden with beige head. nose is grassy, piney, and grapefruit hop notes. flavor is grainy, gritty, grassy, fruity notes. not that bitter, nice and hoppy but seems unclean and too grassy for me. drinkable and tasty.

growler thanks to holdenn....evening with pantanap 3.5.....poured a semi-transparent orange brown with a thick and soapy white head.....a very aromatic and refreshing nose of tropical and floral hops....flavors of earthy/grassy/piney hops that pairs well with subtler malt tones. a strong bitter finish.....iím glad i was able to try this.
