Had this filed under the normal Double Simcoe for years, oops.

Poured from corked 750ml which had some serious champagne cork action and probably the most yeast/sediment I've ever seen. Translucent reddish orange with amber edges, billowing cream colored head which fades after many minutes to a one finger meringue-like cap and leaves thick clumps of lace. Smell: pine, pineapple, pink grapefruit, earthiness, fairly raw but not that explosive, big caramel in the back. Taste: pink grapefruit, tangerine, candied citrus rind, earthy pine, medicinal biterness and alcohol at the end of the sip, prevalent caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel: creamy, thick and syrupy, almost chewy. Drinkability, he says with most of a 750 left to go, is good even though it is slightly sweet and slightly rough at the end of the sip. Fantastic looking, at least in the corked bottles, and tasty DIPA. Not my favorite of the style, but it's quite good, impressive use of the simcoe (R).

Reviewed from tasting notes. L: Pours hazy reddish amber under a 2” off-white amber tinted foam collar that produces thick, complex lacing. S: Citrus, grapefruit and pine aromas. T: Tandem attack with rich malt and assertive hops, citrus, grapefruit and pine interweave with caramel, malt and light fruits. F: smooth, rich, creamy full body, medium to medium low carbonation. O: Big, assertive but well done.

A dark and hazy amber bodied brew settles into my goblet. Head is a rocky fluffy biscuit colored tan with excellent retention and scattered lace. ops on the nose are very resin based with some back ground pine and a hint of citrus rind. With first sip the hops are very prickly and have amazing grassy qualities to the flavors. One of the flavors that reach out is the dandelion stem, this is the dominant attribute that really hangs on the tongue. As you drink you get some citrus tones that develop mid palate. While all this is going on you actually get a creamy dry mouthfeel that is very nice. Drinkability is very nice but demands to be savored.

Been wanting to try this one for a very long time. Unfortunately, I feel like the regular version is the one I prefer more so. This one seems muddled; a result of the unfiltered edge of it. The earthy tones that are prevalent in the regular version are definitely here as well. Though they seem more weighed down and not as boisterous and interesting.

Nice to be able to try, but not really as interesting as I was hoping for.

Pours thick with a dark and heavy appearance, huge head and lots of sediment.

Smells sweet, piney, and citrusy, love me some Simcoe!

Taste is citrus, tropic, slight pine, and sweet malts.

Mouthfeel is sticky and heavy with some grit from the sediment.

Overall, a little too much sediment, but good nonetheless.
