Comes in with an orange glow, soft 2/3" white head. Simcoe didn't kick down much aromatics in the nose.

Taste had actually a lot of malt driven flavors, this wasn't as over the top Simcoe as I would have expected, brings some wood and sweetness from the caramel like malt notes.

Its good, but it drinks like a barleywine just as much as a dipa.

It looks like home brew where they stuck the wand right in the trub. Though it does taste marginally better.

Holy shit this beer looks like a dirty ass fish and turtle tank--the floaters in this are gigantically chunky and disgustingly offensive. You might be expecting this in certain, really old Belgians, but not in an American DIPA.

Trying (very hard) to push that aside, Double Simcoe has a dark copper hue to it with a moderate sized, fluid beige head.

Smells like piney grapefruit candy, with biscuit, and a little dirty sock.

Caramel flavors pop up front, then grapefruit and orange rind come in after, with a very dry and astringent finish.
