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),

Tap...this was easily the best of a recent Weyerbacher tasting. The Simcoe aroma was fantastic with a mix of pine resin, citrus, and floral. Taste was similar and was paired with a malty backbone. Still this was nowhere near Kuhnhenn’s Simcoe Silly, but much better than the other Weyerbacher offerings.

Nice notes of creamy caramel, citrus hops, toasted grains, citrus peel, hints of berries and a slightly herbal, lemony finish. Great creamy feel. Nice, sweet aftertaste.

ACHops (927) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle @ The Porter Beer Bar, served in a pint glass. Pours heavily hazy dark orange with thin off-white head. Aroma is tartly sweet medium caramel malt, light hops on the back. Taste is crisp sugary caramel malt, oaky undertones; big dank hops on the back. Earthy, grassy notes dominate there. The malt and hops don’t seem to play particularly well together here. Very interesting, quite different from hop-driven west coast IPAs.

Nice catpiss mango aroma. Taste follows. A lot of debris in this one but that never bothered me. Average

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a gorgeous dark murky brown with a thin head that is gone almost instantly. Lacing is expectedly thin as well. Aroma is super piney with a malt skeleton. Some dark fruits here as well. Flavor is bitter throughout with a long, satisfying finish. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel. Each sip is a glorious jolt of flavor and a reminder of why I love this style.

I?ve had better double IPAs. Not really getting any nose on this one, but does have the big "stank" finish that one is looking for. Think I?ll pass next time on this one. Bring more aroma next time.

skmikeg (1233) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Pours rusty orange with nice one finger head. Aroma of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, pine, dank hops, and herbal hop with some light sweet and bready malts. Has a medium- full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a tasty DIPA.

radio_nowhere (1057) - Maryland, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy rusty-amber color with cream colored head. Aroma of strong pine/grapefruit hops, heavy malt sweetness, light fruitiness and faint woody note. Taste adds notes of caramel, berries, lemon rind, dried fruit (prunes mainly) and honey. Heavy body, low carbonation, sticky, syrupy, dry with lingering citrus bitter finish. A monster yet balanced DIPA, showcases the complexity of the simcoe hop well.
