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.

The hoppy character hits a higher note with this one with a creamier more bubbly body than original DS. There is almost a streak of vanilla within this bitterness. I can sense the malts in the background which add a nice layer of sweetness. The aroma of pine and citrus is also more pronounced. I got a case as well: they were going fast!

Bottle. I had it at the release but wanted to get a decent amount to be objective so I bought a case. Pours a clouded amber a huge frothy thick off white head. Flavor is just screaming hip hoppy goodness the citric piney quality hits front and back. Palate is crisp, medium body. Makes me glad the stars aligned for me to grab some of this up, I have no doubt this will disappear.

Bottle Pours a cloudy amber with a big off white head. The head lasts well and laces quite well also. Has a good hoppy aroma of spruce with a slight touch of sweet malts. Has a good carbonation and a wonderful mouthfeel. The flavor is good. A real nice bitterness. The alcohol is hidden well. Very well blended and balanced. Has an oily texture. A medium to full body. The finish is bold and hearty with a great lingering aftertaste. I liked the Double Simcoe but I love this.

Bottle. Lots of sediment. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick white head. Tons of pine and citrus on the nose and the tongue without a heavy aftertaste. Very smooth.

Bottle. Man this was good. Cloudy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is nice and bright, citrus and pine hops. As much hops that are here it is not overdone. Taste is juicy and clean, doesn’t linger at all. Aroma and taste are quite pleasant. Creamy and hoppy. Overall very nice.

Bottle. The hops in the special edition stand out more with a more profound citrus and piney smell and taste. I’ve noticed that the regular version bottles can be a little stringent in the hop taste but this one is very smooth with a cleaner mouth feel, actually it is dangerously smooth.
