This is the bigger and improved Simcoe single-hop IPA, weighing in at 10.9% ABV. This one I had on-tap at the Local Taphouse as part of their Mikkeller Tap Takeover.

Pours a thick and heavy, cloudy burnished amber colour, with an extremely fine and persistent head of sandy white. Minimal lacing, but the body and static carbonation is gorgeous. It's a hefty looking brew.

Nose is delicious. Big raw and robust Simcoe characters, giving ripe grapefruit, sharp citrus and a raw, earthy and slightly organic, almost sweaty flavour. It's crisp and sharp, and probably one of the most genuinely hoppy beers I've had as part of the takeover. Really delicious.

Taste is very balanced--far more so than I expected. Very round and quite sweet body, with good weight behind it, but balanced with a citric bitterness and a slight crisp vector of sharpness to clean it out.

Really good brew, and I have to say better than the regular single-hop series. I love the extra body and depth to this, and the Simcoe does an awesome job of cutting through and balancing the sweetness.
