COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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),

BierMeHoos (533) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Draft pour at Brotherhood of Thieves, Nantucket MA. Appearance is a hazy orange amber with a nice white head. Aroma is fruit, tangerines, grapefruit, caramel malt, and resin. Taste is very good, well balanced, fruits of orange, grapefruit, resin. Palate is full and sticky, good alcohol feel. Overall, its very easy to drink and quite potent. Two of these and you’d be doing real well.

crackedmachine (478) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky, sediment-heavy copper with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel and piney, bitter citrus hops. Flavor follows suit, with a strong semi-sweet malt foundation and plenty of piney hops. Pleasant, mild booziness. Solid, but I suspect it may have been better fresher - I noticed after purchase that it was bottled in April and consumed in December. Come on Oade’s, take the old shit off the shelf.

Tessic (1027) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
This double IPA poured a nice caramel colour with a huge light tan head. Scents include ripe fruit, malt, butane? and citrus. First swig was smooth and creamy. Malty smoothness with lots of hop on a nice malty base. A little caramel in there too... Finish is bitter with hops lingering...

HippieFee (287) - - OCT 27, 2015
Draft - Light amber color. Only a slight better ness with a good amount of sweetness. Citrus flavors all around with hints of grapefruit sprinkled into the flavor profile. Have an alcohol taste on this 9% ABV. Average beer. For a imperial/double IPA has more sweetness than I would like on this style of beer.

Was very enjoyable. Distinct taste had me rolling it around my tongue before the swallow

venom666 (770) - Elche, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2015
Hazy dark amber color with lots of sediments and medium white head. Dank aroma, with earthy notes, tropical fruits, pine and citrus hints. Taste follows the aroma, very dank, with passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, citrus and a strong earthy and resiny background, followed by a big bitterness.

SteveOrz85 (201) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Served within a week of the best by date. Served from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is hoppy with notes primarily of resin and floral. One and a half finger slightly off white head dissipated fairly quick. Leaves plenty of lacing. Beer is a hazy orange amber color. Taste is medium bitter with resin, floral and citrus notes. Lightly sweet finish with a lingering bitterness. Light to medium bodied beer with a fairly thin texture and average carbonation. Overall decent, enjoyable IPA. Simcoe hops are not my favorite variety of hops.
