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.

Fatehunter (2055) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Popped the cork and poured it into a tulip glass. A dirty red color with two fingers of tight off-white head that held. Blunted citrus smell. It really just smells like a bag of hop cones, probably Simcoe hops. Strong bitterness, lots of hops and fairly malty. I feel like I am chewing on the Simcoe cones. Medium bodied, moderate to higher carbonation. Fits the IPA bill. While it is enjoyable, I am not getting anything special out of it. It is a good IPA, but it does not standout from most others.

Draft. Light brown, cloudy, thin head. Excellent IPA, great flavors, full body, definitely will do again.

Purchased from Learyís the newish Amesbury location, earlier today. $9.00 for the 751 mL bottle. To oversized snifter, it pours a murky Tyrian purple-tinted burnt orange with which a fluffy, off-white ringed head 1 pinky in length stood. Aromas of sidewalk chalk, non-pareil capers, crushed aspirin, romaine lettuce, sweet tomatoes, expired Smarties, carrot trim, bergamot, grapefruit zest, unripe plums, and bakerís yeast. Tastes the with the addition of Vienna malt, caramelized onions, wet newspaper, sea salt, poppy seeds, roasted corn, and lime tonic water. In my humble opinion, too malty. I prefer DIPAs where the hops are in command.

Pours a very hazy amber color. Nose was not pleasant - not sure how to describe it, other than un-IPA like and skunky. Taste is pretty good - a touch of malt sweetness and then the bitter hops don't mess around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer pours very hazy as expected with an almost ice tea like color. On top is a light tan head of about two to three fingers thickness. This head is long lasting and makes tons of sweet slick lacing on the glass. There is an interesting balance of sweet malt and citrusy grapefruit hops. Deeper in the aroma there are some lemony herbal spicy notes as well. There is an extreme full bodied hit in the mouth of citrusy grapefruity hops, sweet bready malt, yeast, herbal citrusy tea like hops and sweet brown sugar notes. Hop bitterness seems to only catch up in the finish. The finish is slow with all things coming together melting into the tongue. It is full bodied and full textured with a bit a chew to it. The carbonation is good and keeps things from getting sticky or cloying.

Bottle thank to my friend Johnny: Poured a cloudy orange brown with off white head. Malts in the aroma along with dank earth. Carbonated high gritty hops and nice sweet malt backbone.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Pours a tawny reddish brown color with a small creamy beige head. Subdued oaky malt aroma with noticeable alcohol. Upfront, flavor is rich, dark, chewy malt with a hint of spicy hops. Mid taste Is more chewy malt. Finish is bitter with a touch of bittersweet chocolate and notes of oak.

Beautiful hoppy, floral, fruity and perfumed aromas. Pine, pistachio and toffee. Extremely cloudy in the glass. Tastes sharp, with a slightly earthy bite and a muddied texture. Souring finish.

OldGrowth (3118) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle, from Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Ok aroma, sweet. Mango, grapefruit, tad oxidization. Hazed brownish orange color, good size head, spotty lace though. Bitter sweet flavor. Thick body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Itís ok, I dunno, has a taste Iím not liking, might be the oxidation, just not a juicy simcoe, at least this bottle , Iíd have to have one I know was fresh to feel better.

A pungent aroma of hops and cheese rind. The palate is a little rough but that is to be expected with this unfiltered double IPA. I get creamy cheese, such as Brie and Gorgonzola, and sugary citrus. Tiny bubbles and a dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
