In 750ml corked íní 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.

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2009
750ml bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with an enormous head that never stops rising. Big fresh, zesty woodsy hops on the nose. Nice and bright. Artfully balanced in the mouth. Subtle toasted caramel malts and a huge, juicy citrusy hop burst. Only negative quality is the somewhat astringent rubbing-alcohol whiff thatís caught somewhere in there. Good job!

DocLock (8667) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle from Ronís. Pours turbid orangy rubyish with huge, 3-finger off-white head and floaties. Nose is mangoey, tangerine, caramel malt, hops, not as female gymnast feety as regular DS, but with more mangoey notes. Tastes rich, very complex, with caramel malt, a hefty hop bill, and a hefty tropical bill, with mango,melon, canteloupe, and strawberry notes in the tongue, and a flavor that increases with complexity as it warms. Very, very good, but I like the female feety excellence of the regular version a tenth of a point better.

I believe that thanks go to yobdoog for bringing this to Peterís NY gathering - first of all, I have to say that this beer is delicious - however, I seem to remember the original draft version of this beer being unfiltered, and equally tasty - I like to tick as much as the next guy from time to time, but does this really justify a new rating? - I suppose that isnít a question for me to ask - but you canít argue with the tastiness - loads of citrus, peach and tangerine - earthy simcoe bitterness, like cramming whole hop cones in your mouth - new beer or not, this bottle is damn good.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle at PilsnerPeterís Spring Gathering. Pours a hazy brown with a medium beige head. Pineapple, and citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, malty and with a light citrus tone. Touch hot, but with a nice big quinine and grapefruit finish. Rather good.

BillKismet (3562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Hazy tangerine-amber with a fluffy beige head. Passion fruity aroma quickly deteriorates into an intensely catty/cat box reaking. While I enjoy simcoe in moderate quantities or as part of a hop medley, it seems like the higher quantities have a tendency to exude this cat box rancidness. Flavor is again cat boxy with pinches of grapefruit and residual sugar on the finish.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, BVC! Pours cloudy orange amber with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee, and a little catty. Medium body and light carbonation. This beer has a big malty backbone, maybe too big? Sweet taste of caramel and pine.

PPRBSG. Pours a hazy orange body with an off white head. Lots of citrus, passion fruit and tangerines. Loads of fruity esters with out all the sweetness. Awesome brew they nailed this one.

e. 750, corked and baled. Thanks, BVC! Whoa! Pours murky dark amber. Huge grapefruit nose. Persistent creamy tan head. Tons of lace. Big creamy body. Tons of grapefruit and sharp, almost ammonia-like mid-palate that gets almost caustic (in a pleasurable way) due to the high hop oils, acids, and other intense concentrations of ingredients running around. Really a powerhouse beer, and so delicious.

750 ml bottle pours dark amber with thick off white head that lasts while you drink it. Aroma is leafy chewy hops, citrus, and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel wtih a lot of tiny bubbles for carbonation that dance on my tongue. Flavor is sharp grapefruit, orange, alcohol, and finishes dry with more sharp hop goodness. Very smooth and much better than the regular version in my opinion. This was a treat.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep caramel with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma of simcoe hops, grapefruit, oranges, and caramel. Taste if simcoe hops, grapefruit, caramel, orange, bread and yeast. Not as carbonated as the regular and much smoother.
