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),

oh6gdx (25127) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled. Strange hazy colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is flowery hoppy and caramellish. Smooth. Flavour is caramel, "IPA", fruitish and very positively hopped. Smooth and easy to drink. Refreshing. Also some nutty hints after it gets warmer. Hides the 9% very well.

(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Distinctly perfumy hoppiness in the aroma. Solid body with some caramel and then fat, somewhat soapy aroma hops leaving a distinct bitterness in the finish. 011206

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2006
[Bottled at Olivert Twist, Stockholm] Hazy reddish brown, lasting creamy head. Powerful aroma of sweaty grapefruits and lingonberry. Fairly sweet with lots of malt and reasonably soft mouthfeel. Though hop dominated alcohol plays a significant part - lingonberries are strikingly evident. Very bitter finish with plenty of salty licorice and tar. A good one.

Cloudy dark amber beer. Lush but well balanced hops dominate. Smooth marmaladey grapefruit and hop resins abound but it’s not too bitter. An odd dusty note detracts from what is otherwise a very nice beer.

Travlr (21166) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Appearance is golden orange with hues of amber, slight turbidity. Nice white head with some staying power and excellent lacing. Smell is fresh grass and pine with distant hints of lemon and black pepper. Taste is very dominant hops, but not as overpowering as some American IPAs, this one is better balanced than most. Nice bitter finish which is long lasting. Very drinkable. A notch below the Mikkeller Simcoe, but head and shoulders about the average American IPA.
