If you like simcoe hops you'll love this beer. Normal golden color with slight lacing and good head. Piney floral smell and taste. Great balance with a great amount of carbonation and medium body. Overall well balanced great tasting beer.

Clear yellow with a big white head. Transparent's not appealing to me.

Musty Simcoe hops.

Just as advertised. It is all Simcoe IPA with the faintest sweetness of malt. Single malt, single hop? I dig the single hop where you know exactly what you're getting.

Dry as hell.
