3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey, deep golden to amber colour with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Nuttily, pale malty aroma with piney hoppy overtones, minimally sweaty, resinous notes, surpressed citrusy notes of lemon and grapefruit. Taste is pale malty with hints of almond and nuts, piney hoppy overtones with a papery touch, citrusy hints of lemon and grapefruit, sugary interludes. Sadly not the freshest example, nevertheless somehow or other with DIPA punch and characteristics, very robust malty backbone, intense and concentrated hop flavours. Massive if not "Gigantic".

Bomber from local mom and pop shop in Milwaukie OR. Amazing that even small "7/11" type shops in Oregon have good beer. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow...thin head. Nose is combo of a bread-y malt with tropical fruits; taste is pretty smooth for a hoppy IPA. TASTY.

SX Bottle Share, Chelmsford Ale House, Essex, 1/3/2016.
White lacing. Aroma is cats piss, a tad socky and sweaty. A bit of oxidisation is seeping through. Taste is signature Simcoe, too much crystal, some orange peel. Dry. Nice drinkability. Not bad.
