look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a nice amber copper with a solid off white head that is still lingering 20+ minutes after the pour, really nice lacing.

S - Sweet malt, nice citrus hops, strong piney presence as well. Simple but super appetizing.

T - Bold piney hops transform into more of a citrus bitter, slightly sweet. Quite dry and bitter, hops dominate. Very nice

M - Medium bodied+, fair amount of carbonation, probably more of a sipper, especially at this temp (50-55 degrees id guess)

O - Overall a really really beautiful hoppy brew. Really refreshing and delicious, very bitter and dry. Going to be a glorious night with MNF and a whole growler of this to myself

A-Cloudy amber orange, three finger head that leaves behind a lot of lacing.

S-Citrus and earthy notes. Very hoppy as one would expect.

T-More earthy than citrus. Decent amount of bitterness but I was looking for a bit more out of a DIPA. But rather earthy with a bunch of pine flavors.

M-Medium bodied, not much carbonation but smooth.

O-A solid DIPA, however it was missing some bitterness to round it out.

First time trying a Weyerbacher brew. Very excited. Poured from bottle into Bruery tulip. Yields a thin head which quickly dies down. Appearance is a hazy brown with tints of red. Definitely not what I was expecting for a DIPA.

Smell is hoppy as would be expected. There's also some good malty sweetness to balance things out.

The taste is pretty interesting. Like the nose, the hops are balanced by the rich malt flavors. Notes of nuts and biscuits are there and mingle with the pine resin flavor of the hops.

Mouthfeel is decent. It's a pretty full bodied beer at 9%. Still tastes good.

Overall it's pretty good. I'm not blown away by it, but it is a very good beer. Cheers

A: Orange A,her pour. Tiny yet creamy head with moderate lacing.

S: Sweet and Malty. Hints of pine and citrus. Still not getting the catty character people speak of when talking about Simcoe.

T: bitter all the way through. Grassy and citrusy. Honey sweet with some bread notes.

M: heavy than it appeared. Still smooth with light carbonation.

O: Decent.

A corked and caged 750 mL bottle from FluffyMcTingle; thank you for this Want! To be fair, I was sent a 12 ounce bottle of this by JM03 around the same time, but dove into it without the chance to review. So, this review is for the larger format bottle, split into tulip glasses to share...

Pours a dark copper/burnt orange color with some darker brown hues towards the center. A large, fluffy, off-white head develops (three finger’s worth) and lingers for quite some time. Good amount of lacing, and just a great looking beer.

Aroma is of lemon and orange citrus, some faint grapefruit, spicy hops, pine, coriander, earthen grains, a the faintest touch of caramel malt. The hops certainly dominate, but it is well balanced and very appealing. It tastes of spicy hops, coriander spice (from the hops), ample lemon and orange citrus, pine, various grasses, some straw/hay, and a touch of caramel malt. Very well done.

Mouthfeel is crisp, amply carbonated, finishes clean and a touch dry; couldn’t ask for much more. Overall, an excellent DIPA that I really wish I had full-time access to.
