0,33l bottle. Golden with a nice small head. The hop aroma really punches the nose, and I’m a sucker for the simcoe hop. This beer series is not about any smoke and mirrors. The maltbase is simple and the focus is completely on the hop. And what a hop this is. Too much and this will throw off a resiny flavor, and this one is well balanced. A great IPA indeed.

Pours hazy orange. Pine aroma. Taste is toasty malt and bright pine.Slight herbal character. Biterness lingers like chewing varnished wood. Im not a fan of Simcoe on its own, its a hop that blends well with other beers, however a great showcase. mixer006 (44) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 28, 2017
Great piney aroma expected with simcoe, nice golden colour with light white foam. Finishes dry and resinous. Might be a bit overpowering for some.

Can. Golden color, good head. Aroma was full of piney simcoe. Light bodied with light melon like flavors. Zingy pine hops. Well balanced with a pleasant fruity malt backbone with good level of bitterness to balance. Very well done. CacheManyHose (734) - HONG KONG - MAY 8, 2015
8 Nov 2013, surprise birthday single hop IPA tasting! Probably my favourite of the five Mikkeller single hop IPAs I tried (tied with the Cascade). Big cheesy yeasty aroma with pine. Taste is nicely bitter and piney without being unbalanced.

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Simcoe has that typical aroma which for me always smells of conserved peaches. Nice hoppy taste. Rather short finish, but nice IBU that fit the character of the beer well.
