bottle. pours orange amber with lacy white head. piney, floral hop aroma. well balanced palate. solid resinous bitter but has the malt to make for a smooth taste. the higher abv is not at all noticeable. this one had been a bit hyped up, so my expectations were pretty high. so while it is definitely a top notch ipa, i was expecting a little more - something that would really set it apart from the pack. demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Beautiful Burnt Orange color with almost perfect head. Nice hoppy nose with citrus and a little licorice. very intense hop flavor. Not enough malt to balance the hop in my opinion, but just my opinion. Finishes very nice. chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 8, 2008
On Tap at Yard House, Costa Mesa. Pours amber brown with fluffy white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is spicy and intensely hoppy, but finishes with a nice roastiness. A good IPA in the San Diego Style. gnoff (10838) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2008

(Bottle at a beer tasting in Göteborg on July 4, 2008)
Shady orange color, off-white head. Sticky, green, hoppy to cheeze scent. Bitter, fruity taste. Big bitter lingering aftertaste. Smooth a bit moussy mouthfeel. Big bitterness. Warming alcohol in the stomach.
Bottle at Rotary Pub, Göteborg. May 2010
Clear copper color, white head. Citrus hoppy scent. Bitter and sweet malty taste. Smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness.
Rather drinkable for sure!
Tap. Pours a hazy amber with 2 finger off-white head and nice lacing. Nose is ripe citrus, pine and light sweet malts. Taste is tangerine, yellow grapefruit and caramel malt with a nice resin finish. Medium, semi-creamy mouth feel. A nice and hoppy IPA.

really nice floral hop aroma, hazy coppery orange tinted pour, flavor of pine and grapefruit with some malt in the background. Very good finish. Nice balance of flavor, aroma and bittering hops. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Poured a nice cloudy orange color with an off white head. Aroma is of a lot of piney hops mostly. Flavor is also of piney hops mainly with some citrus, not very well balanced by the malts, but in a good way. skortila (5970) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2008

Bottle. The colour is amber with a beautiful white head. Oh so fresh hoppy aroma with grapefruit, fresh grass, exotic fruits and a good malt base. Flavour is very hoppy and leads to grapefruity notes with pine and flowers. I love Simcoe so I really had to love this beer. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2008
