In 750ml corked 'n' caged bottles this will be and unfiltered, fully bottle conditioned version of the super popular Double Simcoe. Expect Cask taste in a bottle, with more pronounced hoppy flavor and aroma due to being unfiltered. Also, carbonation will be a bit higher as is usual in our cork n cage series in keeping with tradition. It all comes together to form a uniquely great experience for hopheads.

    Bottle from State Line. Not purchased with a lot of enthusiasm, especially since the special bottlings never excite me in terms of a re-rate. However, this one was indeed quite nice. The pour was full orange-amber, nice frothy white colored head, impossible to pour the full, even a half bottle anywhere near a single glass. The aroma was orange rinds, orangey-citrus hops, juicey, some styrofoam/spicey hop elements. The flavor followed, darned juicey and orangey-citrusey, finishing with a bitter punch, lots of malt AND hop depth, a really enjoyable brew. The yeast at the bottom of the bottle was quite nice, retained the flavors with an extra different stroke of bitterness. Pretty good stuff!

    Bottle, home. Deliciously dry, yeasty and full of Simcoe goodness. This beer pours a hazy burnt orange color in the shade, which shows up more like a bright tangelo in direct light. The head blooms up quickly in a giant mass of foamy bubbles, almost like a nitro head. Great looking stuff. The aroma is a bit restrained in hoppiness with a much bigger yeast presence than most DIPAs. The hop notes are still quite nice - the nearly perfect Simcoe blend of flowers, pine and citrus - but really bloom when you take a sip. The flavor is a wonderful yeasty hoppy sweetness that finishes dry. As good as the hops are in this beer, it probably has my favorite malt presence in a DIPA. It's not too sweet and mainly serves to hold up the hops, but there's still depth and complexity. The hops coat the mouth in resiny goodness and give a good bitter bite. The yeast is also very pleasant and provides another positive note. Great beer.

    Big aroma of citrus hops and resinous fresh pine scents coupled with a bready malt nose. Thick 1" beige head sits on top of a mellow copper body. Thick bands of lacing stick to the glass as I emptied it. Creamy with a full body, huge puckering bitterness at first. The taste buds adjusted quickly to the hops creating a nice smooth drink for an IIPA. Alcohol is well hidden. The pleasant abundance of Simcoe hops really creates a great flavor profile that is backed up by some serious malts. Grapefruit and lemon along with oily pine flavors. Biscuit and light caramel malts keep the hops in check. Big and hearty IIPA that is very drinkable."

    After enjoying the regular Double Simcoe I was anxious to try this one. Pours a hazy copper color with a huge booming khaki head. Lots of blotchy lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma shows juicy hops, citrusy grapefruit, few whiffs of pine, a little herbal. Big zesty hoppy flavors, sharp grapefruit, orange peel, plenty of caramel malt, notes of chemicals. More sour and tangy than bitter. Very good beer but I’m not sure it’s great. I have to try the regular Double Simcoe again. I want to say this is sharper, more tang, and overall bigger grapefruit flavor, but I’m not sure that I don’t like the regular version more.
