3.93/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Same bronzed appearance as the others, if not even a tad better with a seemingly more vigorous head.
Caramel malts, doughy bread, and Simcoe elements of pink grapefruit, pine pitch, ganja, spearmint, and lime leaves. It has the makings of a solid nostril-gripping IPA, but dialed down a notch or two.
It enters the mouth with the now familiar malty blanket of toffee and sweet dough. The Simcoe prove more capable of holding their own that most of the other varietals (along with the Hallertau which also made a strong solo impression). Gobs of pine resin. Sweet-tart grapefruit juice with powdered sugar. Sprigs of mint. Sub-smoky, resinous characteristics of marijuana and sweeter wafts of pipe tobacco. Brighter notes of lime zest. Bitterness is rounded but substantial. The malt powers through again late, adding balancing toasted notes.
I'm a bit of a sucker for Simcoe, and while not transcendent, this doesn't disappoint.
The series does a nice job pinpointing specific hop attributes, and though a few of the variations don't translate to great solo acts, Simcoe proves complex and capable enough to carry its own.
