Draft was just fine, though the bottle I'm having tonight is way overcarbed.

22 oz bottle poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Hazy reddish-amber with 1 finger of off-white head. Light carbonation.

Nose
Pine sap, mango, tangerine, caramel, and wintergreen.

Taste
Big pine sap, green floral, and wintergreen flavors. Lesser notes of tangerine, mango, and grapefruit. Firm caramel backing with rye on the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, silky, and semi-dry with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Simcoe hop flavors, caramel, and rye are even distributed throughout the flavor profile. It's good but I'm not entirely sure if the $11 price tag is justified.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a brandy snifter.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a nice thick white head that has lots of staying power.
S: caramel, rye, toasted grains, fruity
T: The taste follows the smell. Nice hops presence Good hoppy aftertaste. You can taste the rye.
M: Medium bodied and satisfying.
O: Overall it is a good and tasty beer. I will buy it again.
