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),

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

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.

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.

Aroma is hoppy, pine and floral dominate with a tropical fruit as well. Appearance is almost orange, white head, strange. Taste is delicious, pineapple with pine, a malt presence but that’s forgivable. Mouthfeel is somewhat crisp, yet decently thick for the style. Overall, it’s very good despite the weird color.

tomekk1978 (1307) - Z±bki, POLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Aromat: grejpfruty, pomarańcze, podszyte igłami, tostami, trawą. W tle karmel, ciastka, alkohol. Początkowo przyjemny, ostatecznie nie powala.

Barwa; pomarańczowa, głęboka, wyraźnie zmętniona, z wyraźnymi drobinkami chmielu. Piana w kolorze ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobni trwała.

Smak: umiarkowana słodycz, raczej wytrawny posmak. Następnie karmel, tosty, herbatniki, alkohol. Goryczka ziołowa, żywiczna, cytrusowa, dość wysoka, drażniąca i długa, ale nie zalegająca. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i wyraźnie alkoholowy finisz. Zdecydowanie liczyłem na więcej.

Copper color with a hop aroma that is not over powering. Pours with a nice off white head. Nice hoppy flavor, but not too bitter. It has a good amount of malt to balance out the taste. I did notice things floating around in the beer, almost like it had froze, but I do not notice any off flavors, nor did I notice any sediment in the bottom, so I do not believe this is the unfiltered version. It certainly does not taste like a 9% alcohol beer.

Monchito_IPA (193) - SPAIN - JUL 25, 2015
Muchísimos restos en suspensión de algo que podría ser pellets. En el aroma se aprecia la malta y el simcoe, aunque tapado por el alcohol no es tan potente como se podría esperar. El sabor es maltoso y ligeramente afrutado al principio, y después ... Indescriptiblemente amargo. No he podido acabarla, tiene pinta de haber entrado restos de pellets en la botella.
