The nice cloudy orangey body with the thick white head has huge amounts of suspended particulate. It doesn't settle, but churn with the carbonation. Nothing on the bottle says "bottle conditioned". The aroma has nice tropical fruit tones but it pretty muted. The taste, though, brings it all together, though, with nice simcoe profile. The silt doesn't meddle with the body, either. Wish the production had been better because this should be an awesome beer.

On tap at South Park Tavern. 16oz Nonic glass.

Appearance: Hazy to lightly cloudy dark amber to burnished copper. Thick off white rocky head upon pouring dying back to a thin skin across the top, but with plenty of strands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Lots of pine and citrus, more citrus than pine. Some hints of black currants as well. Deep and pleasant aroma. I did not detect any of the classic "catty - pepe du chat" smell that sometimes comes across with Simcoe.

Taste: Like any well done DIPA - a huge hit of hops with an equally large balance of malt in balance. Hop flavor strong at the start and finish, with fresh cut tart citrus, some berries, and strong bitter finish, with a solid malt sweet middle that was part caramelized, part bready malts. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Nicely thick and not too sticky to the teeth. Just right carbonation.

Overall: Nicely hoppy, but not overpowering and tiring of the palate. Went very well with food (Gryo pizza in this case) and I would not have minded having another if I had not had another beer previously. Dangerously drinkable as well....the alcohol is well hidden. A very well crafted single hop beer!

The nose evokes sniffing citrus in a moist pine forest. On tap pours hazy copper amber with a ½” white foam cap. Herbal astringency seasons and balances a very creamy palate of citrusy fruit and light caramel notes leading to a drying finish. Together, especially in the middle the flavors suggest a hopped pear. Very fine soft carbonation and a medium body.
