look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

2009/2010 Simcoe/Citra: Can courtesy of beerandogs. Pours a clear orange amber with a billowing, yellow, rocky head with great retention and some excellent fluffy lace. Aroma at first is dank hops, then floral hops, lemon zest, orange blossom, honeysuckle, sweet rolls. Big starfruit and raw mango peel start to show through. Taste is nutty bitter, oily, drying, fruity with a big chewy, sticky to near syrupy mouthfeel. Very intense chewy mouthfeel. No astringent bitterness. Massively rich and easy to love.

2011 Citra: 16oz can 2011 ed. Same label as the 2010 version. Pours a clear caramel orange with a large, billowing, rocky yellowish head. Good retention. Big swathes of lace. Nose is quite melon heavy, pineapple, caramel, big detergent/lemon soap. Volatile notes of detergent/soap fade as it decants. Nose gains more muted melon, vanilla, caramel, mango sorbet. Woah such fresh pithy mango pulp. Oh....nom nom nom. Taste is bitter, silky/rich, sharp soapy bitterness, small alcohol presence, nutty bitterness, macadamia nut oil. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Has the elusive "quenching IPA" character like orange juice of sorts that only great IPAs can manage. Correct amount of residual sugar. Long, bitter finish. Very good.

2012 Simcoe: 16oz can thanks to jmikolich. Canned on 10/09/12 it looks like. Pours clear light golden with a rocky, dense, bright white head. Good retention and huge lacing. Nose is...holy cow...so much fresh pineapple and peach. Heavy on white grape juice as it warms. Taste is very soft up front, moving to thick oil and bitter pineapple pith. Some mild white crystalline sugar. Mouthfeel is very rich, oily, no harshness. Finishes quite bitter with nut skin and mild macadamia nut and walnut. Fresh and clean, very drinkable. Almost silky palate. Actually, in my glass if you look carefully there are actually oil beads floating on top of the small, settled layer of bubbles. Literal beads of hop oils. My lord.
