COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jeremyh70 (714) - Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2013
A hazy light copper with good head and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit and caramel malt with bready yeast. Taste follows aroma with sweet malt and floral hops with a yeast adding a nice bread flavor in finish. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a crisp carbonation. Nice IPA that has a nice yeast component that is a bit different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 (2670) - 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.

JesseBones (60) - - NOV 5, 2013
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

AWISLguy (1296) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bomber from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a hazy brownish orange with an orange head leaving some lacing. Super hazy/unfiltered/sediment-y. Aroma has that nice sweet grapefruity simcoe blend. Also some herbs and faint caramel. Taste is of sweet fruits, bitter lemony/grapefruity citrus with some resin and some underneath caramel maltiness. More malty down through the glass. Medium bodied with high sediment. Finishes sweetly bitter in a nice combination, with some length. This is so "well made, very good tasting homebrew"ish.
