Pours thick with a dark and heavy appearance, huge head and lots of sediment.

Smells sweet, piney, and citrusy, love me some Simcoe!

Taste is citrus, tropic, slight pine, and sweet malts.

Mouthfeel is sticky and heavy with some grit from the sediment.

Overall, a little too much sediment, but good nonetheless.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750 mL poured into mug. I must admit, I had only seen this beer once and while I was home I looked at the reviews for Double Simcoe. Just what I was looking for. Did not realize there was a difference between the regular and Unfiltered, since I literally saw this beer for the first time a few days ago. With that being said, pretty damn tasty.

A: Hazy, dark ruby red with some orange hues around the side when held to the light. Definitely unfiltered. Intense carbonation.

S: Earthy, resiny hop aromas emerge with some citrus, follow by intense aromas of *belgian yeast?*. Super fruity and spicy, and I don't think it is coming from the hops.

T: Resin dominates upfront. Slight tropical fruits, pine, citrus and earthy notes follow. This get swallowed up by the belgian spice and fruits I smelt on the nose. Alcohol is somewhat present at the end.

M: Really carbonated, medium bodied. Decent bitterness but is not overwhelming.

O: Hops are not as dominant and upfront as I had hoped. There was no date on the bottle so I am wondering if it is because the bottle is a little old. It has only been at the store for about 1-2 weeks tops because I remember the day it came in. Despite not being as hoppy as I had hoped, this beer is quite delicious. I hop to try the regular Double Simcoe sometime soon.

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.
