A big old coppery/dark red colour. Quite hazy, but leaves a really really tight thick lacing. Literally every tiny sip I take covers the glass in tight bubbly lacing.
Dank. Super dank. This puts my suspicions of the clear aromatic link between simcoe and marijuana to rest. Simply amazing. I get some zesty grapefruit and lemon rind in there, as well as a whiff of caramel. I cant ask for anything more than this... Totally to my taste, and super well done.
Big hops. Just great. This is a really nice IIPA. Massive resinous hops flavour, easily my favourite single hop beer I reckon. Super 'grass'-y with some great tropical fruits in there, but with a really nice sharp bite. Malt is present in the form of some caramel/rich sweetness. Best IIPA i've had since being in USA. By a fair way to be honest. I've had a couple of good'uns to be honest, too.
It's super drinkable. It just goes down perfect. Substantial bitterness clears up the palate leaving you craving another sip. Viscosity in the mouth is great, fills your mouth with enough fullness but doesnt stick around unduly.
A godly ale. Simcoe has just become my favourite hop. I was just getting bored of American hops (c hops). What a perfect remedy!!!

Bought an assortment case in Northeastern PA. Have had the Old Heathen and a couple other brews from Weyerbacher before, but their example of an Imperial IPA is incredible. The malt balances with the Hops to create one of the more drinkable IPA's I've had (particularly considering it's a daunting 9% ABV). Not overwhelmingly carbonated, a great choice for a summer beer!
