4.18/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

a - Great deep amber body with 1 finger off white head.

s - Well balanced nose. Immediately I got a sweet grainy aroma rich with caramel. A second whiff reveals the tropical fruit specifically pineapple complimented by subtle earthy characteristics.

t- Again a very well rounded brew, the IBUs match the sweetness perfectly. Up front it's bitter but quickly gets met by the malt. Hop flavor which is more earthy and pine than the aroma is strong throughout.

m/d - Appropriate body for the style, full but not sticky. Hop flavor and bitterness lingers. Very tasty and complex despite being a single hop.

3.39/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a wispy half-finger head that dissipated quickly. Hardly any lacing to speak of.

S - Healthy aroma of pine, grapefruit, and a hint of dank (pot).

T - Taste matches the nose. Pine, pink grapefruit, lemon peel, and apricot. Caramel malt base, but doesn't stand up to the aggressive hops. Finish is dry and clean with some lingering bitterness.

M - Lighter side of medium bodied, with standard SA prickly carbonation.

O - Decent, but strictly a pine/grapefruit bomb and a very "typical" IPA. Weak appearance and too thin bodied overall.

I love Simcoe hops but this one falls short for me. Not sure if it is the way the hops are used or the malt billing snuffing out this hops goodness but it is an average beer.

More of a pine aroma than anything bordering on citrus. Taste follows suit....piney...a bit of toffee like maltiness..

Medium Full bodied....oily hoppiness

Certainly not a horrible beer but i wanted more out of the Simcoe hops and they did not shine enough and did not exhibit the nice citrus flavors I prefer to glean from this hop.

Still, a decent enough IPA but nothing special....
