Notes/Commercial Description:
Simcoe is the fourth release in our double IPA series that showcases our favorite hop varieties, one by one, with each consecutive release. This hop was a game changer when it was released 14 years ago because of its bright layers of overripe pineapple, guava, and sage. Look forward to many upcoming releases within this series of single hopped double IPA's.

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Dan - thanks. Best by date of 5/26/2014.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a solid 1" white head which fades slowly and yields spotty lace.

N: Dank, weedy, grassy, and herbal notes.

T: Plenty of citrus fruit along with a catty note.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. A slight bit thin.

O: Was expecting more and done side-by-side with Duet, this couldn't hold a candle.

It's Easter, so Raul is chilling with the Easter bunny and sippin' on some Simcoe - and Raul is ok with that. The tropical fruit element is present like Sofia Vegara's melons when she is lactating - yeah, things be wild. Pretty smooth with a lil bite of booze at the end.

It's slightly above ok like... I'll let you fill in the blank on this one, my children.
