Draft at Al’s / Pizza Boy in Enola.
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, grapefruit, resin).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
I have to give credit to PB for getting good hop expression...most Simcoe beers reek of onion, but this is a fruit bomb, as are most of their hoppy brews. Nice beer if a tad sweet. FROTHINGSLOSH (7891) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy caramel-brown color with an enormous foamy orange-tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was malty, sour caramel, crystal malt and pineapple. The flavor was tart and bitter with sour caramel, crystal malt and pineapple. Long finish. Medium body.

Bottle shared during RBWG on the Booze Bus. Thanks to whoever shared this! Amber pour with a medium white head. Citrus and pinecone on the nose. Spiced wood and earthy toasted grain. Grainy sweetness. Brown toast. A bit of crisp lemon and honeydew melon. Toasty finish. Dry and easy to drink. Nice. Strife21 (338) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours dark copper with white head. Smell is malt, hops and resin. Taste is crisp with malt then a dank earthy hop flavor hits. Medium body high carb.

Bottle at the Breen Hampton house. Pours murky copper with milky off white head that persists. Piney and earth hops, rye spicy grain malts on the nose. Lots of the same flavor profile with medium bodied and little bit of soapy malt characteristics but still quite good. A lil chewy.

Bottle... RBWG 2015… Hazy dirty-orange pour with a small, creamy, white head that’s gone in the blink of an eye. The aroma features tea biscuit, toffee, fresh leather, caramel and pissy, musky hops. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet, featuring tea biscuit, toffee and pithy, crusty bitterness. Well-balanced, crisp, refreshing finish.
