Opened a bomber purchased from Bottles & Cans in Chicago, batch #467/468, and poured into a tulip.
A - Pours a hazy copper/orange color with 2 fingers of dense off-white head. The thick foam lingers around for a while. After sipping, the head falls leaving a nice ring behind.
S - Dank with tropical fruits. Pineapple, grass and pine assault my nose in the best way possible. The smell makes the corners of my mouth water, very inviting.
T/M - The beginning of the sip is sweet, but then immediately followed with the hop bitterness. The rich, malty backbone stands no chance against the massive hop profile. I love the great fruity hop aftertaste that's left behind after I swallow. Medium/slick mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation.
O - This is everything I look for in an IIPA. Bold, dank, hop-forward, great hop aftertaste. If you're a hop headline myself, you need to try this brew. Definitely well worth it to give it a try, I know I will be seeking this one again.

Batch 267/268 poured 22oz bottle into snifter.
A - Rusty orange in color with a dirty white 2 finger head. Slowly fades and leaves behind nice webbed lacing on the glass.
S - A load of hops, pine, grapefruit and pineapple dominate. Sweet caramel and hints of honey scents balance it out.
T - Big hit of hops off the bat. Pine and grapefruit with some sweet pineapple. Sweetnes comes in with waves of caramel, honey, and ripe pineapple. Finish is all bitter with juniper and pine.
M - This beer has a medium mouthfeel, good carbonation, with a nice crisp finish and minimal alcohol.
O - This is sensational and showcases Simcoe all the way! It helps me realize that some of my other IIPAs must use this hop. I'm looking at you CW Illumination.
