Golden pour with small head, though tons o lacing. Piney aroma and flavor is similar. Not super hoppy but solid bite. Great drinking brew.
Hazy golden with a fluffy rocky white cap. Thick murky fluffy aroma that’s earthy and piney and hop musty. Thick earthy hop flavor that’s murky and resinous dank with a floral pizzazz. Cool but too murky. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Draught at the Avery Brewing Co, Boulder, CO.
Hazy golden color with a small white head.
Extremely fresh hops, dryness, mild bitterness and dry malt in the aroma. So yummy!
The flavor is super fresh, fresh, hoppy, dry, bitterish and dry malty. This is so fresh. Reeeeaaally good!

"Amarillo & Cascade version: solid fruity grapefruit and spice aroma. body is seamless, flavor well balanced between bitter, fruit, spice, and sweet. Nice finish." ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Avery Simcoe/Chinook Dry-Hopped IPA: As expected, it looks just like the Avery IPA, with a nice, dense white head. But the twist starts with the nose, which smells of perfume, ammonia, and soap... yes, it has a very strong nose. It’s refreshing, thin in the mouth, and well-suited to deliver an awesomely stiff dose of gorgeous hops. The flavor is amazing, a little harsh on the palate if you’re not expecting the onslaught of hop flavor. It’s so wonderfully hoppy, has a great hoppy presence and profile.

Taster poured at Avery taproom. Light colored head that is thick. Pours a golden orange color. Many bubbles are present. Smells very sweet and hoppy and tastes the same. Smooth to drink and very tasty.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Has a fruity citrus hoppy aroma. Fruity citrus hoppy bitter flavor. Has a fruity malty citrus hoppy finish. zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at Avery during GABF week 2013 (listed on the menu as "Simcoe / Chinook IPA"). Dark orange pour with an off-white head that clings to the glass. Aroma of pine and grapefruit rind. The taste is a bitter assault of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit. Listed at 6.5% at the tasting room, this is one of the most aggressively hopped beers I have tried and at that ABV makes it extremely impressive. Awesome beer! kevinator (2205) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Great IPA. Aroma is strong and citrus hops. Coppery color that has a haze due to being unfiltered. Average mouthfeel as far as weight and high carbonation. Flavors were well blended with hops being the goal. Citrus and piney with a mildly sweet malt background. Grab it if you ever come to the tap room. jmgreenuk (9452) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 9, 2013
