Purchased a case of this at the recent Weyerbacher event for this and Foxtrot. This was superior to just about anything they have put out and that says a lot if you can improve on the original 2x simcoe.
I was told by the staff that it would be a good candidate to age but at this point I am very low on the batch so don't see that happening.
Bottle graphics: 7/10.
Looks even better caged, the day previous it was the hit of a graduation party when a couple bottles were busted out for sharing.
A: Big heavy bottle poured into tumbler for this tasting that was done at the start of Memorial Day weekend. Dark gold but pretty transparent. The head on this was especially fluffy, more so than with the kid brother and I love the look of the sediment that came, especially in the final pour.
S: Obliterated by the piney simcoe tree loving hop scents. I could and plan on smelling this to no end. Beatiful smell that meets every standard of a brilliant hop heavy DIPA- the sweetness is clearly there from the malt but nothing is showcased nearly as much as the aroma of the finest kind.
T: Didn't think I would originally be saying this but it is a step up from the regular version. Pure hop goo if that is what you're in to. The presence of the yeast adds a new level of character that really do create a different monster and display the simcoe hops in a way that leaves the lips smacking. There is a sweetness that is also in its original that make this a mind boggingly good beer.
M: Terrific creaminess. Sure you have to like a bitter beatdown but if thats what you crave with some yeasty texture, this is one for you. The burn is not too much but at least gives you fair warning of what this carries.
D: This was a nice change of pace on a great beer. I usually don't like tweaking with some of my favorites, but this truly is a different creature. If you plan on tasting other beers after this, not a good idea. Your flavor sensing taste buds will have nothing left.
