look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I've had this on several occasions now. My last trade I asked for three or four of these bad boys. I was shocked to find a DIPA outside of CA that really has blown me away like this one.

Pours a orange/copper color with a nice big head that dissipates quickly to just lace the glass and top of beer.

The nose on this beer is more than pleasant. Loads of hops. This beer quickly sold me on the wonder and joy of this new hop called the Simcoe. I had heard about it and seen it at some homebrew shops, but hadn't to my knowledge tried it. At least not on it's own to really pick it apart. So much comes from this one hop. Citrus, pine, earthy, all in one. Beautiful.

The taste is where she really shines. First taste is a bombardment of juicy hop goodness. The hop nectar is followed by a strange creaminess. Never had a DIPA (or single) that had this much creaminess to it. I can't believe that they would use rice in this, so I can only assume it must be some affect of the simcoe. You don't even pick up on the alcohol, you are to busy enjoying the greatness of the beer.

I'm very glad to hear this is going to become a year round beer for Weyerbacher. Only sucks I have to trade for it every time I need my fix. I was starting to think the east coast couldn't make a DIPA I could enjoy. Not only did Weyerbacher do that, they put one in my top 3. I'm actually brewing an all simcoe IPA this week. Hopefully I can do it justice.
