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),

Couleur cuivre. Bonne amertume en bouche mais peu de persistance. Une IPA dans le sens général du terme. Dans la bonne moyenne mais ne sort pas du lot.

Well bounce bottle pours an orange copper color with low to moderate head. A nice spicy citrusy aroma. A ton of hop particles suspended in the beer. A nice smooth tasting IPA that's not really anything special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz into large stemmed Ommengang glass. Pours a dark ruby amber and musty brown, looks ugly. Head is small, fades fast, marshmellow brown, 1cm remains and some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh citrus, orange peel, orange spice, booze, grass, and marmlade. Taste is juicy orange, hops, grapefruit, and resinous volumes of the simcoe, which is pungent, zestful and superb. Drinkablility is vibrant and the 9% doesnt dumb down the brew, but it is noticeable. No freshness date on glass, seems to still hold the hop freshness a dipa should obtain. Lots of sediment floating in the brown murky pond of the brew, A nice orange/hop mix lingers in the aftertaste. Nice.

Very good ipa. First smell is very pleasant with the citrus notes. The taste is flowery, citrus and has a long lasting bitter aftertaste. It had 9 percent, but it is not boozy at all. On my hotlist of very good imperial ipa's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Unfiltered chunky full bodied DIPA. Little floating chunks of happiness! This is one of my favorite Double IPAs. Great from start to finish.

Saeglopur (253) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Dark orange, hazy body with medium, creamy, white head. Intense aroma of tropical fruits, like mango, grapefruit and other, pine, caramel malt, some sharpness. Taste with generally the same aromas, again with a sharpness and a great balance between hop bite and caramelic malt backbone. Mouthfeel is medium, oily and finishes bitter and sharp, with citrus and pine. Really good, with a great, sharp hop bite and a good balance.

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a clear orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, pine, fruit with plenty of hops. Taste is light sweet leading to quite a hoppy finish. Awesome stuff.

Daytonbeer (635) - Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours orangish brown with off white head and no lacing. Aroma of fruits, citrus, cherries, and caramel malts. Taste is the same with booze. Very tasty, but I have a feeling the hops have mellowed in this one.

Bottle. Sweet and spicy fresh hops in front of a caramel malt backbone. Apricot accents. Hazy dark bronze under lacy, wispy white. Nearly salty flavour from a ton of hops that are spicy and fruity and combine nicely with warning ethanol. Not overly complex. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
