22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.

Gorgeous. Pours hazy orange with a 2 finger frothy tan head that stays around for a while. A fair amount of carbonation can be seen rising from the bottom. Before I've lifted the beer, I've already got sheets of lace around the rim. As I get near the bottom of the first glass, there are sheets of lacing all the way down the glass.

The smell of this is intense. The hops are piney and citrusy. I can't make out any other smell than the hops.

This tastes great. Somehow, the hops are very intense and yet the flavor is very smooth at the same time. While the hops dominate the flavor profile, there is a sweetness that comes out in the middle and towards the end of each taste, which seems kinda backwards from how flavors in double IPAs usually hit me. More pine in the taste than citrus. I like that this is a single hop variety so that I can understand what simcoe is all about...and I like it. It's got a very long finish that, again, is sweet and piney at the same time. Amazing that after not being able to smell the malt, the taste has this much sweetness and it leaves my lips stick sweet. The 9% abv doesn't really show in the taste of this.

Mouthfeel is more than medium bodied. Sticky sweet, and it coats the mouth. My entire mouth feels a little numb too.

This is one of the best double IPAs I've ever had. Presviously I was very impressed with Weyerbacher's oaked beers but not their others. I am very impressed that they were able to come up with such a great double IPA and I hope they continue to come up with great new stuff.
