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),

750 ml. dark crystal, harsh bitter, and alcohol bite. some citrus and pine aroma but the bitter basically knocks your tastebuds out. the dark crystal dominates. i prefer the flavor and aroma hops to be showcased. not bad but not my favorite. tried hop stoopid a few days prior and enjoyed it much more... and it was 3 dollars less!

This double IPA poured a nice caramel colour with a huge light tan head. Scents include ripe fruit, malt, butane? and citrus. First swig was smooth and creamy. Malty smoothness with lots of hop on a nice malty base. A little caramel in there too... Finish is bitter with hops lingering...

Bottle from cantina della birra. Nice aroma and flavor of simcoe: piney resin and citrus. Well balanced double/imperial IPA

Draft - Light amber color. Only a slight better ness with a good amount of sweetness. Citrus flavors all around with hints of grapefruit sprinkled into the flavor profile. Have an alcohol taste on this 9% ABV. Average beer. For a imperial/double IPA has more sweetness than I would like on this style of beer.

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

venom666 (627) - Elche, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2015
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.

ebone1988 (613) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2015
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 (1064) - Ząbki, 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.
