Not a bad single hop. The simcoe stands out as an orange citrus on the nose and tongue. Not as sharp of a finish as i would like but not a bad drinker overall.

11.2oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Enjoyable as the Warrior was, to me this one merits the price much more clearly. Lovely cloudy orange pour, with a nice head, decent retention, and a very gritty, earthy look to it. Boy, do I love Simcoe hops and the nose is so fruity and floral. I could drink gallons of this stuff, I think. Body is nice and full, and the flavor is really lovely. Would that it were cheaper!

bottle. gentle pour yields a hazy light orange color with some visible particles despite gentle pour. Big, fluffy loosley-packed inch of off-white head with plenty of lasting power an lacing. Dank, resinous, piney nose with some notes of sharp bitterness and light booze. That distinct simcoe quality is certainly there. Flavor oozes, again, that "distinct simcoe quality". Sharp resinous pine needles, earthy bitterness, and sticky resin. Some light notes of smooth toasted caramel and some booze showing through. Interesting, well done flavor... but also somewhat reminiscient of... every other simcoe-heavy IPAs. Not a detraction, but also leaves one wanting something to stand out more. Palate is creamy and full with a tad bit of excessive carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Overall well done, just not as interesting as one might hope.

Bright hazy orange pour. Thick & fluffy off white head accompanied by some drippy lace. Fresh simcoe hops on the nose. Tropical fruit flavor with minimal bitterness

Pours a cloudy dark orange amber color. (Unfiltered). Large white creamy head. Huge citrus hop aroma. Good carbonation. An awesome APA brewed in Europe. Good stuff.

Copper in color with a medium off white head. Aroma of alot of fresh simcoe: pine, grapefruit, hints of tropical fruit. Taste is nice and hoppy, alot of pine, grapefruit, some hints of tropical fruit with some molasses and toasted malts in the background. Smooth, full bitterness in the finish. Nice, you can’t go wrong with simcoe.

11.2oz bottle from Swolf3, thanks Steven. Bright orange pour with a pretty big white head. Smells like a freshly mowed lawn and some citrus, very nice. Kind of bitter, very fresh, more citrus, grapefruit maybe. Pretty good.

330 ml bottle at the Bayou. Pours a dark amber color with a huge powerful white head. A really nice hop aroma; citrus, oranges and grapefruit. The flavor was also nice; a full smooth simcoe hop punch, oranges and grapefruits, sweet and juicy. A light, but nice malt background. Very nice.

unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - APR 26, 2009
Pours a clear very dark copper colored body under a generous foamy beige head that left lots of spotty lacing. Aroma is still quite strong with that lovely simcoe scent. Some hefty sweet candy like maltiness below. Lots of punchy citrusy simcoe flavor with a powdrey sugary finish that I seem get with simcoe beers. Minimal sweetness peeking through the hops even though there’s not much bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a soft almost creamy texture and pinpoint lively carbonation. This was a nice one.
