Fast on the heels of our fantasticly reformulated Hops Infusion, our brewers have picked up the gauntlet and brewed a Double IPA using exclusively Simcoe(R) Hops! This west coast Hops was created in 2000 by Select Botanicals, Inc. and carries a fantastic flavor profile abounding with citrusy-grapefruit, piney, resiny notes that pushes this Double IPA over the top. 9.0% ABV in the brew gives it a nice malt foundation as well. Draft and bottles, 12 oz. in PA, 22 oz. out of state (as we have no 6-packs),

Arayaga2 (2131) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 Cidery opaque appearance with a big tan head. Nice hoppy citrusy aroma (as expected). Flavor is less citrusy and more tea-like with a lingering bitterness. $5/22oz (nyc) Great in a bottle, but nearly perfect on draft.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled. Strange hazy colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is flowery hoppy and caramellish. Smooth. Flavour is caramel, "IPA", fruitish and very positively hopped. Smooth and easy to drink. Refreshing. Also some nutty hints after it gets warmer. Hides the 9% very well.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
RBSG 2006 - DC Grand Tasting Lineup Amber, nice head and light lacing. Nose of sticky oily hops, sweet and floral. The flavor is sweet, rich body and a nice creamy mouthfeel. The finish is tasty, a nice balanced and grapefruit rich mouthfeel. Nice.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amber color, small white head. Sugary, bready, mead-like sweet nose, which is full of Simcoe aromas. Soft, sweetish mouthfeel, loads of hops. Bready, bitter aftertaste. Tasty, but not very complex for my liking.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 Orange-amber in colour with a long lasting white coloured head, great lacing. The aroma is extremely hoppy (citrus, pine), herbal, grassy, lightly sweet. The flavour is rich and chewey, intense hop bite (orange, pine), moderately sweet, small amounts of caramel malts. Very bitter mouthfeel, medium/large body, high carbonation. Finishes very long with a hoppy bitterness, dry. This is quite bitter which is fine but it seems to be lacking in balance to me.
650ml bottle obtained in a trade with OldGrowth, thanks Tom. No Best Before date.

A very smooth, highly drinkable IIPA with all the attributes of the style. I will buy this again.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2006
(07.01.06) One pint 6 oz brown bottle as gift from Tom D. Poured hazy golden yellow with giant white head. No discernable carbonation. Hop bouquet aroma. Full bodied ale that starts with moderate malt sweetness and intensely pine resin citrusy hop flavors. Finished with light hop bitterness. Massive malt to support intensely hoppy profile. Smooth and rich. An exquisite mouth-watering ale, one of the best (if not the best) Weyerbacher beer that I ever had.

pythonmets (14) - Charles Town, West Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Nice orange hue on the pour with thick white head. Malty spicy aroma. Wonderfully malt flavor with nice carmel intwined with pine-like hop intensity. Smooth balanced hoppy spice finish. Beautifully bitter.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Pours copper golden-brown with thick off-white frothy head. Aroma is nicely balanced with caramel malts and piney hops. Flavor is back and forth between the piney/slightly citrusy hops and the sweetness of the malts. Both aspects are nice on the palate but fight each other for balance. Palate feel is fairly full bodied, very oily, and nicely bitter.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2006
<!-- b -->Aug 06<!-- /b --> Bottle @Kookfest. Piney grapefruity hhops. Malty frain flavours become slightly too sweet. Intense bitterness is nice but doesnt manage to balance the beer and the lasting flavour was of sweet malts.
