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

Appearance: Pours with a finger and a half of head which settled slightly but was very present while drinking. Dark, almost burnt orange color. Sticky lacing left behind at each level. Active carbonation was bright, a touch above average for the style.

Smell: Heavier saturated citrus with biscuity malts on the front. Some lighter tropical fruits that I associate with Simcoe pop up on the body. The finish is some bold pine and medium bodied fruits with accents of oranges, pineapple, and grapefruit.

Taste: Biscuit and caramel malts warm up the palate which parlays into some still prevalent Simcoe hop profile. Lingering citrus with some lighter tones of pineapple, mangos, and kiwis show up on the body. The finish is some pine and caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Balanced hop bitterness with brighter fruit tones. Solid malt backbone. Carbonation fits.

Overall: I know I am a little late to the party with these, I'm sure fresher this would have even been a better beer. Will get one of these fresher next year and revisit, but regardless, this was still very solid.

Bottle dated best by October and drinking in July. Should be considered fairly fresh.

Appearance is very nice with excellent retention and lacing. Smell is very piney. Taste is quite pleasant for an IPA. Slight fruitiness, piney, floral and well balance malt to support.

Overall I'm finding that ole Jimmy K. is finally starting to make some decent IPAs. This Simcoe is a respectable IPA and I enjoyed it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Too sweet for Simcoe; these single-hop Latitudes need more hops! Hint of lemon.

T/M: Pretty good! Nicely balanced between a classic American-hop pine-ctirus and sweet-sticky caramel malts. At least this is noticeably an IPA. Enjoyable, but not exceptional. Smooth, sweet finish with nary a hint of pine or astringency.

O: Very nice. Good beer, even on its own.
