look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bouttle poured into leffe glass. Hazy orange amber color with a small creamy cap that fades quickly. Smell is heavy on the sweet malts, followed by tropical fruit hops. Lots of mango. Taste is bright and fruity hops, slightly savory and bitter. Malt sweetness is more balanced in the taste then it was in the smell. Heavy body and medium carbonation. Drinkability is average despite the strong flavors and high abv. A very good example of a midwest/east coast DIPA.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Dark tan/brown, fizzy with a nice 1/2 inch creamy head.

Smell - Hops, malts, lots of grapefruit. A little alcohol smell.

Taste - Burnt hop simcoe for sure. Plenty of alcohol in each drink. Its bitter, but more of a mild bitter, nothing like a devil dancer. The malts are nice to add a little boldness to the beer.

Mouthfeel - Its dry abd bitter, but surprized it wasnt all that harsh on mouth. For a DIPA its smooth and mild. I could drink a regular ipa right after this. Not much after taste.

Drinkabilty - Its ok. Not what i was hoping for. I can say this beer would be interesting to drink fresh from the barrel. Maybe this was a little aged cause it was rather mild in flavor. Of course i think that about most weyerbacher beers. I want to try the unfiltered to see if its better, theres alot better ipa's, single or double out there. Ill review this one again if i ever get a real fresh one.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice amber-copper color with a pretty solid off white head. The nose brings forward a large amount of citrus rind as well as some resinous pine. There is a slight amount of caramel malt in the background. The taste is quite bitter with some nice citrus and pine notes. Grapefruit and orange seem to be the most dominant. Mouthfeel is dry with a bit of booze. Overall, this drinks fairly well, but there's something that doesn't come all the way together for me in the end.

Had this beer at Lord Hobo in Cambridge, MA. Beautiful orange color with a creamy head and fantastic lasting up and down the glass. The aroma of this beer is amazing. Beautiful, complex hop aroma. Nice grapefruity hops flavor are present in the taste of the beer and alcohol is masked well. Mouthfeel is full bodied and creamy and this beer is a very drinkable DIPA. So hard to believe they can get such a complex hop flavor with just simcoe. Loved this beer. I wonder if it is as good in the bottle?

Notes from 10/12/2010:

12 oz. bottle at 42* into a pint glass.

A: This pours a super cloudy burnt orange color with a finger of creamy head.

S: It consists of citrus, piney hops, and a background of chocolate and smoke.

T: Powerful caramel maltiness, citrus, and still a chocolatey and smoky finish.

M: It's sticky sweet and long-lasting.

D: The strong malt character makes this taste more like a hoppy barleywine. It's a fine brew nonetheless.

This Mega-IPA is not for the Faint of Heart!
It is a robust, delightful assault on the senses.
If you like un-balanced American IPAs, then you will love Weyerbacher's Double Simcoe IPA.

Quality is high, as to be expected for any beer from Weyerbacher.
Nice pour, lacy head with good retension.

Citrusy/pine nose typical of the proprietary hop variety used(Simcoe); Cascade like, yet unique.

A. color is a hue somewhere between amber and copper.
Clarity; I'm not one to put a great deal of value in clarity; unless the brew is a muddy or murky stew. This beers clarity is true to style. After all, if you want a crystal clear beer, Budweiser pumps out hundreds of barrels of the stuff per day.

T. the taste of this beer is outstanding. The citrus (grapefruit) dominates with the malt and alchol bringing things reasonably in balance. Of course, bitterness wins the battle; but a true hophead wouldn't have it any other way.

If you dig IPAs--buy this one!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into my Weyerbacher tulip.

A- Deep mohagony, maroon and amber throughout the edges of the glass and towards the bottom. Head pours very nicely, is almost almond in color. Leaves nice strings of lace on the glass as well.

S- Very strong grapefruit. Grapefruit is dominant but other fruits come out, orange and watermelon. Very citrusy. Does smell piny also but that takes a backseat to the wonderful fruit aromas.

T- Good hint of the hops upfront. Very fruity like the aroma, grapefruit and citrus. Hint of the alcohol but its hidden well. Bitterness comes at the end.

M- Fairly smooth for a DIPA. Does have a nice malty feel to it. Alcohol becomes warming as you let the beer sit.

D- I could sit and sniff this beer all day long thats for sure. But it is very good, probably the fruitiest tasting DIPA I've had. I think my hops mellowed out in this bottle however,*sigh* but I'll deffinitely drink this in the future. Just wont let it sit as long next time. A great offering from Weyerbacher though, glad to live within an hour of this brewery.

cloudy dark amber color with a huge frothy head and excellent lacing.

straight hops in the nose and slightly floral, but not much else.

Nice hop bite and decent malt balance in the finish. pretty bitter.

medium bodied, and slightly creamy from the large head. tiny alcohol burn but given the ABV I don't really feel it's too strong.

Fairly drinkable. It's a one of those DIPAs that is on the maltier side which is fine if you are in the mood for one.

Pours a hazy nut brown with mild head and decent lacing.

Smells sweet with a slight, but full hop scent.

Sweet caramel malts embodied by a great hop flavor and nice bite throughout. Simcoe hops add a nice flavor.

Mouthfeel is somewhat sticky. Medium bodied, mild carbonation.

12oz bottle. Pours a murky brown with a large head.Tons of lacing. Smell is very sweet and floral. Very floral. Maybe some hints of citrus in there somewhere. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Floral but not really any citrus flavor to it. Not the normal Imperial IPA that I like to drink but still pretty good. Pretty easy to drink but I'm not too sure what to think about this beer. I like it but it wasn't what I was expecting. Good change of pace IPA for when you are tired of citrus. Fortunately, I am not sick of those IPAs.

Pours deep brick/copper with a creamy, off-white head.
Has a musty aroma, with the expected cat pee, which is not as off putting as it sounds. It's also floral and a bit fruity, namely peach and apricot.
On the palate, sweet malt and green hop flavors come through first, with some bitter citrus and herbal, leafy, earthy and musty notes. Mango, peach and orange peel hit in the middle and a strong malt backbone keeps it all together.
It has a creamy mouthfeel with some good malt chewiness to it. The resins give it a nice sticky feeling and it closes out with a sweet, fruity but bitter finish.
The beer is not overly bitter, it is complex but well balanced and subtle, not overly aggressive hops.

A: Dark copper to mahogany body with a dense white head.

S: Pine, cream, and lemon.

T: Starts off with a good dose of citrusy hops. Some lemon and grapefruit. Finishes mostly creamy but has a bit of a spicy kick at the end.

M: Smooth--almost closer to a triple IPA than a double.

D: A sipping beer. Always try to have double IPAs whenever I see them. This one was definitely better than average, but wouldn't be one of my favorites (those would probably have to come from Russian River).

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a rather murky orange/brown brew gives life to a relatively small but frothy light tan head that laces well.

pine and citrus and bitter grapefruit aromas give way to a sweet malt smell.

lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits attack the palate. pineapple, nectarine, passionfruit, mango, among others. a touch of pine as well. some soft and sweet malts balance it out nicely, almost too much, with a slight alcohol heat. but its tasty with lots of flavors intermingling.

medium bodied and a bit oily with good carbonation levels. a bittersweet aftertaste with a bit of alcohol astringency.

drinks rather well. not a complete "hop bomb" but the hops are there. I think they have faded just a bit over a little time. From my recollection, I enjoyed the unfiltered a bit more, but this is a very good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A copper orange hued pour from a 12 oz bottle offers decent retention and lacing for an East Coast brew. Not much carbonation is evident amid a light haze.

Nice nose of earthy hops, bit of malt and a touch of citrus. Improves with warming somewhat, becoming a bit smoky with some air.

Flavor is lightly bitter and somewhat chalky and dry of bitterness. Nicely balanced in flavor overall with a hint of so many things. Subtle and discreet, yet enjoyable nonetheless. Becomes a bit orange rancid in malt flavor by the finish as the bitterness dissipates. Somewhat lacking in bitterness overall, and with a notable syrup viscosity in flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep, slightly orange amber with subdued carbonation. The head is pretty diminutive, and quickly fades to leave just a skim across the top, but leaves wonderful lace on the sides of my tulip glass.

The aroma is loaded with dank pine and grapefruit goodness from all those simcoe hops. I do still detect a hint of boozienss and some pale malt sweetness, but they just seem to add to all that wonderful hop aroma.

The flavor is hoptastic with plenty of candied orange, ruby red grapefruit and some fresh pine character. The malt is surprisingly plain and sugary given the color, but it does a good job of accentuating all those hops, and standing up to a fairly high bitterness that is most apparent in the finish.

The mouthfeel is on the larger side of medium, and finishes sticky dry with hop flavors hanging on my tongue. There is definitely a bit of perceptible heat in this beer, but it does not detract from the overall feel.

Not the most drinkable double IPA, but quite tasty. I tried this back when I was just getting into craft beer hardcore and I remember thinking it was a bit too much at the time. I am definitely glad I came back to revisit this one. Recommended.

A: Pours a deep copper color with a huge creamy off-white head that leaves impressive lacing.

S: Well, those are Simcoe hops alright! The malt is way in the background, but the pine and citrus of the hops dominates the nose.

T: From start to finish, this has hop bitterness. Normally, you'd get some malty sweetness up front, but here, you just get the least bitter portion of the beer. As you head over the center, your palate is coated in pine hop resins and oils, leading to a piney finish. Surprisingly, the aftertaste is on the palate, rather in the throat. Very interesting.

M: Very viscous and oily.

D: If you're in the mood for hops, this one is a great single hop IPA

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

A: A dark amber to a mahogany color body that is very hazy. The tan/ivory head is initially 1-2 fingers, creamy in texture, that dissipates over time to a foamy ring around the glass with island foam in the middle. Great lacing and head retention.

S: A sweet malty aroma with citrus & piney hops. A very balance smell that is powerful, rich, and overall pleasant.

T: An initial sweetness on the palate is followed with a rich caramel malts and necessary bitterness that is hardly noticeable in the beginning of drinking this beer. Pine, citrus, and grapefruit hops are there as well as a strong malty backbone and brown sugar notes. A very balanced beer that that tastes like delicious-ness.

M: A smooth and creamy texture with mild carbonation and a medium-full body.

D: I only bought one, wish I bought more. So good. Definately will be drinking this again in the future.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a mug.

Appearance: rich orange hue with plenty of haze. Head is two fingers of creamy dark-ivory foam. This beer looks thick.

Smell: big, sweet malty aroma with a big dose of citrusy and slightly piney hops. This smells a lot like an American barleywine or strong ale. I rather like it.

Taste: sweet, caramel malt backbone with rich, citrusy and piney hops. There's plenty of grapefruit flavor here for the taking, but it's well-balanced by a huge malt body. Bitter, but balanced. I like it a good deal.

Mouthfeel: big body with a creamy, silky mouthfeel. This thing is chewy and really coats the mouth and distributes the flavor. Pretty solid, I say.

Drinkability: this is a very drinkable DIPA. I feel like its good balance makes this something I could have a few of, despite the high ABV. I'd definitely look for this again.

A - Light amber brown. Cloudy. This was a 12oz bottle which I didn't think was bottle conditioned, but theres lots of particulates floating around like it was.

S - Fresh hops, sweet malt/alcohol, some toast/nut

T - Bitter, muddy unattractive hops. Alcohol. Long, pleasant bitter finish.

M - Medium to medium-full, cleaned up in the end by the bitterness. Good, strong carbonation.

D - Had to struggle through this for long enough that by the end it was reduced to a warm bitter vodka tasting drink.

Not at all a good example of a DIPA in my opinion. I didn't think there could be such a muddled hop flavor in a single-hop beer. Alcohol was way too forward. I'd take a sip of this again if someone else was drinking it to see if I got a stale bottle, but wouldn't spend my money on it or recommend anyone to buy it.

Great DIPA on tap, very close to its bottled version with a slightly richer nose here.

Presentation: 12 oz draft serving. Menu offers a short but fair description. Notes Alc. by Vol. (9%) Served on a tulip glass.

A - Deep amber to amber brown orange pour. Short but fair head touched the rim of a glass served almost full, good retention, surface memory, with some frothy lacing.

S - Very rich and fresh hoppy nose: grapefruit, pineapple, with a grassy and resinous feel.

T - Rich hoppiness, pineapple and grapefruit are richly upfront with a nice malty backbone.

M - Medium body with a sticky and creamy feel, and a dry bitter touch in the finish.

D - Nice DIPA with a smooth touch that makes it particularly pleasing.

Notes: Still quite remarkable on tap. Worth the selection although I guess that I may lean towards the unfiltered bottled version...

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a duvel tulip. beer is brown and hazy forms a thin head that breaks and disappears, leaves very little lacing. carbonation is low.

aroma is piny and malty, pretty standard

beer is medium bodied and quite bitter. it leads off with a lot of malt though. its kind of a tie in here between the malt and the hops. drinkability good, mouthfeel fine. its ok.

Picked up the corked, bottle fermented version at CBX about a week and a half back... popped it open tonight. Pours a murky, deep copper amber, with an off white head that is huge and shows some considerable, chunky lace that sticks and globs all over my trusty Piraat tulip glass. Aroma... first thing I notice, surprisingly, is cararmel malt?!? Piney and citrus notes dominate the hop profile. There's also some sweet yeast in there, along with what I'd characterize as a homebrewed hop sediment aroma. Like the smell, there's quite a bit of caramel malt in the taste... followed by dank hops: herby and heavy grapefruit rind. A touch of booze peeks through, along with some molasses and maybe a touch of all-spice in the finish... interesting. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and somewhat creamy, yet a touch prickly and with sticky, sweet malts. Its pretty heavy duty stuff, but very enjoyable. One of the more complex double IPA's I've had -

Double IPAs like the Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA have made their way on to the regularly available list for most breweries and pubs. These beers could certainly be considered an acquired taste, they are generally pretty intense, but those who like them like them a lot!

Weyerbacher's history is classic American Homebrewer turned brewery story. All it look for Dan and Sue Weirback's hobby to explode into a dream reality was a trip to brewery-rich Vermont in 1993. By 1995 they had established the Weyerbacher Brewery in downtown Easton, PA. After spending two years brewing more mainstream products, Dan realized his mistake and began to focus on big beers; the first being a Raspberry Imperial Stout. Although no one seemed too interested in a standard Pale Ale, they were sure excited about a Raspberry Imperial Stout, and soon-to-come Blithering Idiot Barleywine.

This is the real deal right here. Craft breweries creating unique and exciting beers that people will genuinely get pumped about. How do you get pumped for another run of the mill bland beer? I really don't know, I'll ask the Coor's marketing team for the answer.

The Double Simcoe IPA is another of Weyerbacher's big beers, and it is also a regular now in their beer portfolio to heed the call of all the hopheads out there. It comes in a 355ml bottle at 9% abv. It was designed to provide all of the rich flavor and aroma characteristics of Simcoe Hops without the harsh or aggressive bite. Only Simcoe Hops were used because they are prized for their high Alpha Acid content, maximum aromatic oils, and low cohumulone (a chemical which produces a harsh bitterness). When you brew with hops you are looking essentially at two different properties being imparted to your beer.

1) Bitterness; the longer the hops boil in the mash, the more Alpha Acids will be absorbed into the wort creating a strong bitter sensation. After time though you will loose the flavor characteristics of the hops and are left with the strict bitterness itself. Depending on style and goals, this may or may not be optimal.

2) Aroma; if hops are in the mash for a shorter period of time you are able to extract the hop's flavor contributions without loosing their potent aromatic qualities. This imparts a more noticeable hop flavor and aroma in beer without becoming excessively bitter on the palate.

Depending on the style, bitter hops vs. aroma hops will be balanced, or emphasized in one direction vs the other. In the case of the Double Simcoe IPA, Weyerbacher has desided to focus on the aroma hops, producing a beer with all the rich flavor characteristics of hops, but lacking the serious bitterness that would have naturally come along with it. I split this beer with a good friend of mine into two tulip glasses. It poured easily with light viscosity producing a glowing amber red beer with a short half inch dense cream colored head. The beer was calm showing a transparent golden mahogany color with touches of bronze and orange - quite beautiful.

The nose was powerfully floral with bright citrus flavors and generous pale and caramel malts. Grapefruit and lemon peel was easily detectable, and pine and earth gave away to the backdrop of sweet dense malt. The nose was very rich and aromatic; hinting on the true power of this beer. We poured this beer relatively warm around 14C (54F). For a big IPA like this we were directly trying to emphasize the richness of the hops, so a touch colder could have muted them.

Drinking this beer is a bit confusing because it is hard to tell what comes in first - rich and potent hops burst in with sweet citrus fruit, pine, earth, honey and spice. But at the same time dense malt glows through with caramel, toffee, brown sugar and sweet candy. It was actually weird cause I was looking for some bitter hops to come in a balance the sweetness, but the hops were in there adding to the sweetness. Very strange sensation, very interesting.

I kept playing with this beer contemplating its construction, and really it just continued to confuse me. Maybe that was a good thing though, proving that the malt and hops here are in perfect unison playing off each others strengths. Really the backbone of this beer is in the malt, but the hops have so much rich aromatic power that they share center stage.

There was minimal carbonation on this beer and the overall mouthfeel was somewhere between silky and oily. It did emphasize the power of the hops, but I actually would have preferred a delicate rumble of carbonation to scrub my palate. The finish was lightly dry but sweet, with a medium short end. We both enjoyed this beer a lot, but it does not go in the top Double IPAs for me. Although many would scoff at the idea of an IPA with desert, but this baby was built for rich chocolate, I guarantee it!

A-Pours hazy deep orange with a big ol' fluffy head that won't leave. Just so much head on this. Do I like this much? not sure.

S-Piney and citrusy hops. Maltiness does come into play which makes it fairly balanced.

T-Balanced but strong in both areas. Huge cirtus and pine combined with a pretty heavy malt. A lot of taste here.

M-Pretty rich but not as resiny as expected but still quite thick.

D-Drinks much easier than most 9% DIPAs. For instance, DFH 90 minute is the same alcohol content and I find it to be much boozier and overall harder to drink.

New label and my first review was semi-suspect. I don't double review so I will give this one its day in court now.

I actually agree with most of my initial review. The textbook Simcoe aroma and flavor is excellently highlighted. Deep, oily pine and aromatic candied citrus. The flavor is slightly more vegetal. The nearly tart grapefruit and biting pine is quite delicious.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A-Pours a hazy, opaque orange-copper beer. Amber-tan head topped this glowing brew, receding sort of quickly, but still retained as a nice swirl of bubbles.

S-Resingy, earthy-herbal hoppy aroma, thick and sticky, somewhat unusual from my experience. A bit of sweet-seeming maltiness lurks beneath the surface.

T-A thick, nearly vegatative hoppiness grabbed ahold of my tongue, resinous and thickly herbal. This flavor persists well into the aftertaste. Esters provided some perceived sweetness, which perhaps accompanies a hint of toasty, nutty malts. But these don't have much of an opportunity to shine, as the huge hoppiness is continually boxing out the malts for attention. Hop bitterness is huge, at times it even seems almost too huge for the beer to handle.

M-Medium-heavy body makes this one pretty substantial. Carbonation is a surprisingly spritely moderate level.

D-Drinkability is a difficult attribute for this brew. It's a pretty aggressive DIPA, with the bitterness to go with it. However, I still feel that a great DIPA should be a bit easier-going. For that, I'm going to knock this one a bit.
