Weyerbacher Brewing Co. - Double Simcoe IPA - 12fl oz bottle

Look - Pours a strange hazy caramel with a negligible fizzy head, good lacing.

Smell - Interesting sweet passion fruits and slightly bitter from the simcoe hops. Slightly boozy in the nose but generally smooth throughout. Maltier than expected.

Taste - Quite different here. Fruity but not like any others, it is defintely the passion fruits from the simcoe hops you taste here. Juicy but still bitter. Not sure this is what I am looking for. Malts are also a bit on the tall side.

Mouthfeel - Lingering grapefruit and pine is nice but the booziness overrides it quite a bit. Decent but not amazing.

Overall - Not particularly breathtaking but at least it is unique. Worth a try but not my thing, I would not purchase again.

Pours an unusual cloudy burnt orange with a very small white head. Aromas are hoppy and boozy, nothing in the way of tropical citrus qualities: the nose is more savory than sweet:I suspect it is the hop profile.

Flavors are enjoyable mix of savory hops with a detectable note of alcohol that is somehow more present in the nose than in the taste, which is a benefit. Alcohol is slightly hidden for 9% abv with regard to flavor and aftertaste.

Coats the palate with a blast of hops and a moderately boozy note that doesn't really linger very long. Overall a pricey 4 pack worthy of a purchase because it is a good quality IIPA that really doesn't look or taste like any other.
