look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 500ml bottle (bottled on 6/26/12) into a Sierra Nevada 30th anniversary glass.
A: Pours a golden straw color with a 1/4" white head.
S: Some light citrus, a hint of pine.
T: Great way to taste simcoe on it's own. Light citrus in the form of orange and grapefruit. A hint of pine as well. Moderate yet pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. All of top of a light malty body.
M: Medium bodied, average carbonation.
O: A great pale ale. Excellent showcase of the simcoe hop.
Serving type: bottle

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger frothy white head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Large streaks and spots of soapy lacing left behind.
Delicate floral hop aroma that becomes more prominent as it warms. Slight grassy/piny with subtle citrus and light fruit notes. Hints of apple, pear, pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel with a light biscuit malt backbone.
Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a spicy, floral hop bite up front that provide some dry bitterness that lingers throughout. This is countered mid-palate by pale malt, subtle citrus and some light fruit. Bitter but not too much so with the perfect amount of dryness that's countered by bready yeast, biscuit and pale malt. I'm also picking up hints of straw, apple and pear. Well balanced with great hop flavor making this beer very quaffable.
Serving type: on-tap
