4.09/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows tropical fruit including melon and fruit confectionery alongside some sweet clean malt.
More fruity hops as flavours with big confectionery notes. Also a fair whack of sweet clean malt before an aggressive but balanced bitterness enters.
Could use more carbonation. (307 characters)

Pours into a becker a clear deep bronze with a large blooming head that leaces two full rings of broken lace as it settles oh so slowly into a frothy mass.The Simcoe hops stand out in the nose along with caramel malts and mild toast,like a hopped up Vienna lager to me.Dryer on the palate with toasted grain,earthiness,and leafy hop goodness,a little more oomph from the leafy hops and it would bump up my score.A damn fine amber lager,a healthy dose of hops, and on the dryer side. (482 characters)

Had on tap at the Bulldog during a Clownshoes tap take over. This is a big bold beer with some lager crispness and smoothness but it has the big IPA hop character. Very nice, reasonably light, refreshing and full flavored. (222 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear dark red colored body.
The aroma is a dank lemon and grapefruit and wet hay, all the in the best way.
The taste has a strong lemon bitterness upfront, loaded of malt in the background, but it's a hoppy beer.
It has a medium body with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable. (309 characters)
