3.83/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - clear amber liquid with one finger of creamy tan head. The head only has moderate retention, but leaves heavy lacing.

S - modest hop aroma for an Amer. IPA. Some caramel malt notes in the background. Nice but not impressive.

T - Heavy malt tempering of hops. Hop level could be mistaken for an American Pale Ale. Some nice dynamic interplay in balance between hops and malt, but the hop component comes out dominant in the finish

M - Medium body, medium/light carbonation, dry finish. Scores extra for the very creamy head.

D - balance and near-bold flavor make this an enticing brew. May disappoint some hop-heads, but will please those who love substantial malt with their hops.

A - Pours with one finger of off-white foam on top of a clear, amber-brown body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace.

S - Musty pine with some tropical fruity notes of mango and guava. Some caramel and toffee malt notes in the background as well.

T - Caramel malt and funky, pine hop flavors up front. Some more depth comes out in the middle, mostly in the form of pine and mango hop flavors. Darker malt notes of caramel, molasses, and light roast appear in the finish with strong bitterness and more dirty pine hops.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Simcoe IPA says it all, this beer positively reeks of Simcoe hops. The aroma is excellent with an overwhelming pine and mango character that has a musty, dirty gym sock thing that you only get in IPAs with overwhelming levels of simcoe. the flavor is much of the same, though it is a bit heavier on the pine and darker malt character comes out. This beer is unusually dark for an IPA with lots of rich sugary malt and even some roast creeping in towards the finish. This is a really nice IPA, it is quite a bit better than the I-10 IPA (which was already pretty decent) and I imagine that beer will be on this level next time it is brewed as well.
