COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fast on the heels of our fantasticly reformulated Hops Infusion, our brewers have picked up the gauntlet and brewed a Double IPA using exclusively Simcoe(R) Hops! This west coast Hops was created in 2000 by Select Botanicals, Inc. and carries a fantastic flavor profile abounding with citrusy-grapefruit, piney, resiny notes that pushes this Double IPA over the top. 9.0% ABV in the brew gives it a nice malt foundation as well. Draft and bottles, 12 oz. in PA, 22 oz. out of state (as we have no 6-packs),

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
Bottled - courtesy of Mullman. Thanks a lot. Orange/amber coloured. Uclear. Light brown dense head. Pines, herbs, caramel, some fruits and light sweetness in the nose. Yummy. Flavour as well is very intriguing. Piney, herbal, flowery, light spiced and smooth sweetness. Full bodied. Balanced and quite complex. Dry mouthfeel. Is citric and heavily bitter in the end. Good one.

MattShizzle (608) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. Sort of cloudy. Very good. Very intense flavor. Not as hoppy as I expected, but could be due to balance of high gravity. Almost like a barleywine.

Hildigltur (5105) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amber coloured. Very hoppy aroma of grapefruits. Very hoppy sweetish flavour with a dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good, but not very balanced.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2006
22 oz bottle: Pours hazy light amber/orange w/ a lasting off white head. Wow! Pungent little bugger! Piney and grapefruity hop aromas abound! Malt balance in aroma definitely a bit behind in this race, but lightly toasty and caramelly. Frutiness is all grapefruity hops. Balance is pretty much the same for the flavor. Grapefruity hops dominate the flavor profile, but well balanced between sweetness and bitter. Finish is slightly to bitter and hop flavored. Fruitiness again is all about the grapefruity hops. Heavier medium body, smooth mouthfeel, well hidden ABV which Im just realizing now is 9%! Medium carbonation. The only downside... Well, there really isnt one, except if you dont like Simcoe hops!

Where do i begin? The aroma: After popping the lid I knew this was special. Pours an average copper with a light head and lacing. Looks are deceiving. A big hoppy flavor with subtle sweet piney taste and bitterness that bursts off of your tongue. Smooth leaving a wonderful aftertaste. This has a high alcohol content which is not noticeable so be careful as it will sneak up on you. A quality complex brew that is worthy of a permanent place in the beer stable.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Holy Hops Batman! This baby i overloaded with those lovely Simcoes. From front to back, top to bottom. Pours a hazy orange with a thick head. Rich flavor throughout with a nice malty sweetness. Excellent IIPA!

AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Orange-Amber appearance. Strong Hop Flavor mixed in with citrus and other earthy flavors. Smooth and refreshing. High Alcohol content (9%) is hardly noticeble. Overall, a fine beverage.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle from zathrus13. Cloudy and hazy with a definite aroma of citrusy hops creeping out from the bottle even before I can pour it. My tastebuds are secreting saliva as I pour it into the glass..do I drink it from the bottle as it will be faster?? No,really this is a very good brew from Weyerbacher. Nice a bitter on the back of the tongue
