Had two pints on tap at Sidney restaurant in East Berlin, PA. What a powerful Brew! So much flavor to this beer and the alcohol content really sneaks up on you. When the waiter told me it was 9 percent abv I didn't believe him but it was the truth...weyerbacher misses in a few beer styles but this one is a winner.

Fresh growler sent to me unsolicited by jzeilinger. Whatta guy! Into a Brooklyn tulip.
A: Pours a dark, opaque orange with a soft white head. Decent lacing forms.
S: Sweet, alcohol-soaked pale malt mixes smoothly with citric and tropical hop notes. Bitterish grapefruit, mango, orange, pineapple.
T: Delicious tropical and citrus fruit notes from this beer: papaya, mango, mild pineapple, bitter grapefruit. Big peppery alcohol underneath it all. Soothing, sweet malt and a spike of alcohol in the finish. Dank, somewhat oniony bitterness lingers.
M: Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Pretty thick, with some nice fine carbonation.
O: This is a great DIPA. Alcohol is a little abrasive for 9%, but besides that the Simcoe character really shines. Delicious.

Initial nice round fruit nose which hints at the intent.
Gorgeous almost perfect deep orange and brownish haziness which doesn't toally obscure the beading which is largely ubiquitous.
Nice balance of sweet sap and hop forwardness. The nose just fills the room and for quite some time too. One inch magnolia which is slightly rocky leaving complex lacing. Lots of complexity on the tongue and there's a fair amount of sugary sweetness in the background. This leads to a long sweet bitterness with some rubbery notes as it ends.
None too shabby. Feel I should like this more but there is just something which seems amiss here. Will need to retry it sometime soon.

Thanks to Chris for tossing me this at LeBleu. Cheers!
Amber brown, thick looking, topped briefly by a finger's worth of off white head, that gives the cloudy beer a thick look. Lace firmly clings.
Neutral sweet, grainy aroma, citrus, pine gum, floral, cat pee (in a good way) all make a yummy bouqet.
Sweeter than expected, it starts with a bit of alcohol and candy, gains pine, some bitter pith, merest hints of sweeter hop notes, into a finish that is heavily steeped in alcohol spice and thick pine and bitterest pith.
Quite full bodied, tastefully low carb., but it falls down on finish, mediciny after awhile, alcohol presence, and not having clean flavors.
A murky and deeply raw, hoppy brew, stressing the angrier side of American hoppitude. Decent, but many better ones easy to grab.
