Smell is piney and hoppy. Taste is just like the smell, very piney and hoppy. Very delicious. Only issue is that I wish it was more carbonated.

Simcoe variation

12/17/2014

Tap at Monkey Paw. Blond with a white cap. Nose full of Simcoe. Spicy grapefruit with some pine . Not much sweetness. A little crackery malt. Lightly sweet flavor with biscuit and dominant grapefruit. An interesting lingering tangibles. Dry finish and high carbonation. More bitter than expected
