Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Many thanks.

The beer is orange / russet and fairly hazy with a half inch of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, alcohol, bready malts, pine. These massively hopped, high alcohol beers just get on my nerves. Aggressive alcohol heat / sharpness in the finish. Lacking subtlety and grace. An in your face onslaught of hops and malt. Not entirely bad, but not my preference for the style. There are many DIPAs in the 8-10% abv range that reign far superior. This concludes my rant.

Put a freaking date on the bottle. Seriously.

An impressive fluffy white head that lasts forever. Piney and earthy hop aroma and flavor dominate. Very good but I'm not so sure simcoe is a hop I enjoy alone.
