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),

mgajdaczewa (1487) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
W aromacie dominują nuty leśno żywiczne, w tle słodkie nuty tropikalne i czerwonych owoców sugerujące że mamy do czynienia z poważnym zawodnikiem. W smaku potężne uderzenie goryczki, która mimo swej mocy jest krótka, orzeźwia a nie męczy i dopuszcza do finiszu lekki cytrusowy posmak. Wytrawne, żywiczne, potężne. Nieco zbyt mało kompleksowe, ale to świetnie skorojone IPA. I pijalne, niestety, nieźle ukryty alkohol.

lightbias (437) - USA - JUN 3, 2015
Dark apricot, full of sediment and topped with a small, off-white foam, the head too heavy and wet to stick to the glass. The aroma is a thick pine, rich with citrus, and held aloft with a sweet malt backdrop; caramel with a bit of molasses in the flavor. The medium body is thick on my tongue, lightly carbed, but not as well as I could really enjoy. There could be so much more. I would enjoy this again, but wouldn’t be a favorite. And Simcoe is soooo good. I’m a bit disappointed.

michcam8 (478) - Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bunch of floaties (big) in my glass when i emptied the 12oz bottle...gross! After I filtered out, cloudy orangish glow with a fluffy white head. Faint aroma of citrus hops, and some caramel malts. Taste was malty, citrus, and very bitter. Alcohol was also noticeable. Did not enjoy this beer much. Would not recommend to others.

I’ve had this before many times and it’s always excellent. However, this time I may have gotten an older bottle as the hops don’t seem too fresh.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a murky dark orange with limited white head, some sedimentation from bottle settled at bottom of glass. Resinous nose, fresh pine and grass with a hint of caramel sweetness. More malt taste than I expected, but hop flavors - moderate citrus, floral and pepper notes - come through rather nicely. Heavy mouthfeel with a syrupy consistency. Exudes booziness as it warms.

kevinsenn (1880) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pleasant tropical fruit aroma with a little caramel. Taste of raisin and brandy with citrus and boozy notes. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. Average double ipa.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle shared at the KoBB meeting. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is oranges and pine. Taste is still more orange, maybe the grapefruit, caramel, light toast, and heat.

libertine (369) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 pours a hazy orange amber with a nice white head. Aroma of tangerines, red grapefruit, caramel malt, and resin. Flavor is fantastic. Well balanced. Orange, Grapefruit, resin, and sweet. Full bodied. Oily texture and a little sticky on the lips. Alcohol is well hidden and this is so drinkable that it is real dangerous at 9%. Finish has a lasting bitterness.. This is real good.
