3.83/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy and slightly rusty golden yellow with a thin quarter finger of white foam.

Grapefruit, lemon, and orangey citrus fruit dominates the nose with a subtle toasted malt sweetness apparent as well.

Citrus fruit comes out strong in flavor as well, but seems muted in comparison.

Light-bodied, low carbonation, slick, oily, and thin.

Overall, this beer is rather one dimensional and lackluster.

Bottled 2/27/17. I day old! I have had 3 different beers from this brewery and all have been excellent. I really like the
full liter bombers instead of the usual 750ml. This IPA was very well balanced with good citrus notes. Hazy appearance. Very nice nose. Smell the freshness! A great example of the Simcoe Hop. Anything from this brewery is well worth trying. They are small and hopefully will grow and be more available.
