COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 750ml corked ’n’ caged bottles this will be and unfiltered, fully bottle conditioned version of the super popular Double Simcoe. Expect Cask taste in a bottle, with more pronounced hoppy flavor and aroma due to being unfiltered. Also, carbonation will be a bit higher as is usual in our cork n cage series in keeping with tradition. It all comes together to form a uniquely great experience for hopheads.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours a cloudy, dark copper with a dense eggshell head. Aroma is sticky sugar coated bread with pine, herbs, and hints of leather. Flavor is an herbal hop slap in the face with a good measure of sweetness to balance it out

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep hazy amber/brown with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of pine, orange, a little plasticy, pineapple, caramel and toasted malt. Flavor of grapefruit, resiny pine, earthy notes, toasted malt, toffee and caramel.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours the color of a tarnished penny, with lots of haze to it and an absolutely massive head of tan foam. It takes up at least half the glass... which, considering this is a 750, means I need a much bigger glass. Aromas are thick with hops... pine, grapefruit, a little pineapple and some lavender or rosemary or something herbal. This is definitely high ABV, I feel quite a bit of warmth at the onset and then through to the aftertaste. There is also a pretty substantial malt presence... caramel. Hops come through strongly as well. Pretty much right as the nose predicted... pine and pineapple, grapefruit and herbs, and I find myself wishing the malt profile would relax a bit and let the hops take a little bigger lead. Still, this is pretty darn good stuff.

sthlm (1233) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2009
[Bottle] Pours hazy reddish-amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is big hops (grapefruit and herbal) blending with yeast. Taste is mainly herbal and floral, then alcohol, malt towards the end, and sweetness as it warms. Thick, creamy, chewy mouthfeel with a decent length finish. Very enjoyable beer that had great mouthfeel. One of the better IIPAs that I have had, and something that I could definitely drink a lot of.

emacgee (4138) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Thanks todd for sharing. Pours a murky orange amber with a thin yellowish head. The nose is piney, pungent, spicy, sweet, resinous, fresh hop, mango/fruity. The flavor is resinous, spicy, piny, citrus rind, prominent bitterness. Very bitter/waxy palate.

Guerde (1183) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2009
(bottle, thanks OSLO!) Pours out a hazy amber with a medium off-white head that retains nicely. Aroma is quite herbal, with hints of garlic and basil, but there’s also a pineapple presence along with an ample amount of caramel and light pine as well. Flavor is really good, with a lot of caramel, some sweet peaches, a tropical candy-like sweetness, and anise, that’s backed up with a good bitter finish. Palate is extraordinarily smooth for a DIPA, and the mouthfeel is very full and chewy as well, and I’d give it higher than a 5 if I could. Just a very well done and immensely drinkable beer.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2009
750mL bottle from Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Pours cloudy amber with a medium beige head. Citrusy and spicy hop aroma with a touch of malt. No feet smell like the original Double Simcoe! Citrusy grapefruit flavor with a touch of malt and a lasting bitter grapefruit finish. Truly outstanding.

dankman (253) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2009
What a beer to bring out the evil in all of us. Pours a brownish yellow with a fair amount of sediment and very little head. Noticed lots of pine with some grapefruit in there to boot on the nose. Nice hoppy flavor with some sweeter malt attempting to balance it out. Finishes hoppy yet surprisingly clean for a beer of this style.

bgburdman9 (858) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Poured an amber color with a small head and a little cloudiness. Aroma had some floral dank presence and some earthiness. Flavor had a solid bitterness and was pretty sweet. Flavor had a lot of hop presence but not really that much better than the regular which didnt even seem as good the last time I had it. Pretty good malt presence to this though. Pretty tastey and priced well for a cork and caged.

pineypower (2540) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle from Stateline. Pours out a somewhat murky copper color with a nice rocky off white head. Aroma is of woodsy pine and citrus hops, slight sweet malt and some alcohol. Taste is of pine, floral and citrus hop notes, some sweet malts, slight earthy notes and some alcohol on the background, chewy hops on the palate. I like it.
