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),

Pours a deep amber color with a huge rocky off white head. I pick up a distinctive malt presence that I’m starting to think is a house characteristic of all Weyerbacher beers. Heavy resiny hop notes with a splash of grapefruit. Strong malt backbone. Alcohol is a little too harsh in the finish and the mouthfeel is a little oily. This one starts out extremely promising but ends up being simply above average.

Long story here. So I got this as a bomber at Halftime but left it in the fridge of my girlfriends house. Been trying to not drink it b/c of that but could not resist at Barcade as my next beer in my journey of the day. Another thing is I was on the Sixpoint tour and was told how Simcoe is the "hot" hop, and everybody is going gaga over it. So here we go. Pours a translucent dark copper with a small head into a 10 oz wine glass. Cannot see through the beer. Smells like...hum...i dont know...maybe Simcoe hops - duh. The taste however was also very creamy but still an all hop beer. I mean its a very good Double IPA but are we ever going to get more creative here. I mean where is the Double Amarillo IPA?

22 oz bottle. amber with a medium to large long lasting head, thick sticky lacing. Aroma is earthy and resinous hops, a very big aroma. Taste is big citrus hops, very resinous and earthy, with a good amount of malt backbone. Very sticky pretty long lasting bitter finish. This is great.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2009 Very large head. Let me rephrase that, I great big head that gushed out of my glass. It looked very impressive settling though. Off white in color and reduces slowly to leave a thick sheet of lacing. Great hoppy aroma. Plenty of grapefruit and flowers. Little sweetness in the aroma also so you know that this is going to be malty and well balanced. Color is a slightly cloudy dark orange brown. Hmm. Nice body and sweet malts but the hops are a little weak in the flavor. Some caramel and brown sugar. Little bit of hops presence at the finish with a little bitterness but is not a strong as I would have hoped for. Creamy smooth finish also. A very good double IIPA and one of the best brews from Weyerbacher.

Drank this one at the brewery at our sales meeting. Fresh from the tank with an antipasto platter. The aroma of the Simcoe hope is fantastic! Such a powerful hop varietal. The flavor was potent but pleasurable. Strong and vibrant in color. This is a beer that stands out in a crowd. Once you try it you will know!

Attractive bronze appearance with a large, rocky, off white head and nice lacing. Pine infused aroma with a spicy edge. Surprizingly smooth, creamy, full bodied palate. Strong alcohol presence, but no burning sensation. Early hints of sweetness receded as it sat awhile and then developed a more refined bitterness. Long lasting, lip smacking finish. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 Bottles courtesy of kramer17801 and artusory. Bright copper with decent off white head, doesn’t have the greatest retention, but great lacing, very oily coats the entire glass. Strong pine and citrus aroma up front, then develops a very juicy citrus/pine resin character. Decent malt backbone. Flavor is pine and citrus up front. Huge caramel kick through the middle, fades back to a pine resin finish. Oily smooth mouthfeel. Very well done.

There’s a lot going on with this offering from Weyerbacher for only $4USD for a double-duece bottle. Thick foamy head, copper body and a strong botanical aroma. The bitterness from the Simcoe hops is strong, well blended with malts to your palate will effortlessly enjoy. Weyerbacher constructs a winner of a 2XIPA that is perfect for summer consumption.

Thanks to ross for the trade! Off-white head above copper-orange pour. Excellent lacing throughout. Hop-loaded nose, all citrus and pine. Also catch some caramel or candy in the nose. True to its name, the simcoe hops presence is ever-noticeable in flavor as well, but there is good balance. Citrus hops and molasses malt combine quite well. Although I’ll concede that the hops do outweigh the malt, it is not in such an overpowering way that the malt gets lost. The finish is hops bitterness, but a lingering sweetness remains after the hops notes fade. The resultant alcohol burn is minimal but noticeable. Good stuff, and a fine example of the IIPA done right.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy complex spicy citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Heavy citrus bitter flavor with a solid bitter finish that was long lasting. This is a standout brew.
