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

Served in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a hazy amber color with a medium white head. The head faded relatively fast giving some nice lacing.

Smell – The smell was of earthy hop mainly. There were also some nice hints of citrus and a very light pine. All the hop aromas mixed with a nice bready aroma.

Taste – The taste was of a bready base with a good dose of citrus hop up front. The citrus gives way to a bit to some more earthy flavors toward the middle of the taste. There is a very interesting melon flavor that develops more toward the end of the taste. It’s odd, but very nice. Overall the taste is complex and nice with many other subtle flavors that rise and fall throughout the taste.

Mouthfeel – The body was higher than average in creaminess with a medium level of carbonation. The beer felt very nice on the tongue and complemented the taste profile well.

Overall – This was a very nice, easy drinking DIPA. Very well done.

Serving type: on-tap

12 oz. bottle; Bottled 020912, Best by 100912

A: Pours the color of a sunset, very orangey yellow with almost no head

S: Very hoppy with notes of grapefruit, orange, general citrus, and some pine as well. Slight alcohol esters and malt background also present, but the hops take center stage

T: Follows the nose, very hoppy at first and then the malt and alcohol hit slightly, followed by more hops and bitterness. Again, hops are citrusy with hints of pine. Grapefruit and orange most prevalent

M: Medium-full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Hop resins coat the tongue fully, even after it's gone

O: Hopheads rejoice! This one will get you your hop dose and then some. I like the single-hop idea, especially with Simcoe, as it is nice and citrusy while throwing some pine in as well. Alcohol and IBU's might limit the drinkability a little, but who cares. Great beer!
