3.68/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

big thanks go out to Lum (wherever he may be) for the bottle. Thanks Paul!

Pours a deep ruby color with a slight haze and an off white head that forms easily and retains pretty well.

Nose is alot of...uh...simcoe, and a significant perfumey malt sweetness, smells a little dated.

Taste follows with significant bitterness, and a sharp piney hop profile that seems a little old. Dont know how old this bottle is, but it shows some signs of being a few months past its prime. The flavor profile of the hops is a bit lacking but still obvious, and the bitterness is certainly still there. Sharp dry finish.

Mouthfeel is slightly overcarbed, and a bit viscous, but not bad for the style and/or gravity.

Drinkability is ok, but this one is a tiny bit hot.

Overall, an ok DIPA, certainly a good one for the east coast. The bitterness is quite high by EC standards, but its not checked enough by flavoring additions. This bottle seems like it might be a touch old, but even if it was fresh it wouldn't be anything mindblowing, but certainly not a bad beer, and one im happy to drink. Enjoyable brew.

3.98/5  rDev -2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from an undated 750ml c&c bottle into a pint glass.

Look: really nice beer to look at. Color of high-quality maple syrup. Thick, tenacious head.

Smell: so, here's where I admit that I didn't realize there was a difference between Double Simcoe and *Unfiltered* Double Simcoe. Got this in a trade, and expected a big whiff of DIPA hoppiness, and got Belgian notes instead. Did my trade partner play a joke and swap a Double Simcoe label onto a Unibroue bottle? Nope, some quick googling cleared things up. Back to the smell, now that my brain's in the right place: brown sugar, vanilla, a bit of orange peel.

Taste: classic Belgian profile, à la Unibroue. Then, the hops sneak in, complementing the yeast and malt character quite nicely. A bit of a soapy aftertaste, but honestly, not unpleasant.

Feel: a little insubstantial for my taste. Hard to put my finger on it, just underwhelming.

Overall: aside from the initial shock of this not being the beer I was prepared for, pretty good. But, I actually don't think I like it quite as much as SN's Snow Wit, though I had that less than a week old, so it had a much stronger hop character.
