Saw this and had to try. Simcoe is my fav hop by far. Dark Amber, super vleasy you, snd looks awesome. Brownish head and string lacing. Great aroma. Aroma and taste are Pine, grassy and earthy. Drinks smooth and not stringent though good hitters are present.

Drink with ribeye, wild game, roasted vegetables and corn on the cob, no really.......

Looks like murky, rusty water. Has floaties.

Very fruity/tropical aroma.

Thin mouthfeel for a DIPA.
Nothing overpowering in the taste. Simple but good.
As others have said this is also a malty DIPA.

Pours a thin slighty yellow head, color of deep orange, amber.

Very fruity aromas, of peach, apricot, grapefruit and sweet grapes.

Taste is incredible refreshing, intense orange smack, thick honeyed citrus, hints of bread, some alcohol and finally a big load of simcoe hops. A big, bitter ending, which is very enjoyable, its got a nice complexity, coming from the sweetness at the beginning which vanishes into total bitterness at the end.

A nice double that tends a bit toward the sweet side. A nice balanced double with a huge aroma that comes off a lot like brown sugga. Nice double if you do not want to be overcome with hops in a big dipa.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass

A- a murky medium-dark amber/orange with a fluffy white head, that dissipated pretty quick. Funny that this is the filtered version, as there's still some particulates floating in there.

S- Big and dank. Pine, grapefruit, a bit of that onion/garlic/cat pee thing that Simcoe gives off. Malt it detectable as a mild caramel note.

T- I like Simcoe, therefore, I really like this beer. Dank, sticky and bitter. Pronounced citrus (mainly grapefruit and orange rind), pine, and a dank garlic/onion note. Some faintly detectable pineapple.

M- Slick and almost creamy for a big, dry finish DIPA.

O- On oldie, but goodie. Double Simcoe still stacks up very well against today's trendy DIPA's.
