COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While that damn Dionysus was taking all the glory, Simcoe, Greek God of Beer and Relaxation, was out, diligently developing tools for man to brew- fresh grain and hops, active yeast, and bountiful water. With its golden glow and sharp hop bite, our Imperial Single Hop IPA is a tribute to this lesser-known God (and as temple-worthy as its namesake).

Nice yellow and lasting head. Nice aroma of grass and grapefruit. Really nice taste to go with the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is gold. Very hoppy smell to this and an equally hoppy bite to the taste.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
On tap at The Knick. Floral and cheesy hop aroma on this one. Pine and resin, sweet with mild grapefruit and peach. Medium-dark amber clear, light haze, with thin lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation and light warming. Starts moderately sweet with big bitter hop hit. Citrus, pine, and tropical fruits. Medium bitter finish with lingering bitter after.

Aroma: yeasty medium hops. Appearance: dark gold, medium white creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: caramel malts, medium sweet again, the end, long, light bitter, medium carbonation. Overall: amazing Imperial IPA, right sweetness, no alcohol notes appearing. Pint at Euston Tap, London.

3.5
The_Osprey (7985) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap. Orange, hazy, still, white bubbly head, uniform lacing. Smell - toned down hops, musty, grassy, some caramel. Body is medium, carbonation low. Taste - strong toffee, grapefruit, sticky sweetness, heavy bitterness. Not bad.

3.4
SaintMatty (7364) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2014
355ml Bottle - Amber in colour. Pine, lemon, crystal malt and a hint of tea in the aroma. Fairly hoppy taste with notes of tea, lemon, and grapefruit, but it’s tasting like it’s a bit tired. Not sure how old this one is.

4.1
DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear deep copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is that great pop of Somcie hops, fruity, feety, with spare caramel malt. Tastes caramel malty, with resiny fruity hops, some tartness, and some late tannic notes. Overall, reminds me of Sly Fox 113 or some of their varietal IPAs.

3.7
abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours golden orange in color with an off white head. Aroma is full of pine scented hops. Decent carbonation with notes of caramel. Earthy, biting finish.

3.9
PhillyCraft (7225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at pour house, lightly hazy golden pour with small white head and sporadic lacing. Aromas and flavors are sticky and dank hops, light cheddar, skunk, oranges, pine, and funk. Medium body, smooth on booze.

3.4
Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
This one poured a bright dark yellow to orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of piney simcoe hops, and caramel and alcohol. Flavofr was similar, lots of booze and caramel sweetness, but at least a solid amount of simcoe to be somewhat balanced.
