Old Review
12 oz bottle I got from Arbor Place Beverage in Douglasville, GA. Poured into a shaped pint.

A: Poured a nice, bronze/copper color that is not exactly clear, has a touch of haze to it. The head is bright white and I got a couple fingers. This head has amazing retention. The lacing is fuggin amazing. Seriously sticky, soapy lacing that notches the glass all the way down. This beer has amazing rings on the glass. Really looks awesome.

S: This brew has some nice aromas. The hops jump at you at first, but citrus rolls in with some nice grapefruit and orange skin. This brew is not all hops in the nose. There are notes of malt and pine lingering in the back. Inviting scents.

T: Holy hop mama. This beer has a serious hop profile going on. Bitter as the taste rolls through you mouth and it gains intensity. Pine compliments the hops nicely. Grapefruit tarts it up and just when you think it is done, malt and vanilla come in to balance things out. The malt and vanilla do not kill the hops and bitterness though.

M: Medium in body and has some serious stickiness. There is some serious hops, bitter, and resiny aftertaste. A little bit of heat lingers on the back of the throat due to alcohol. Carbonation does play a factor here. Although light, it really cleans the palate and helps the taste come back as if new every time.

D: This beer is good. Really good. Has some serious complexity for something that sounds very simple. It is a bit heavy on ABV so too many can cause some problems. This stuff is crazy good. Want more please.

22oz. Bomber

I've been pretty anxious to give this a try and was finally able to get my grubby little hands on one. Poured into my pint glass a hazed dark orange/amber color. There's all kinds of tiny carbonation bubbles rising up into the creamy, solid, slightly off-white head. The head leaves moderate lacing as I drink.

I could smell this as soon as I popped the cap. My mouth watered immediately and is actually watering right now as I type this. There is a nice caramel sweetness, maybe even a touch of very lightly toasted grain. That's just the backbone though. What stands out is the mouth watering hoppiness. There is an aroma of fresh pine needles and a few drop of mango and bitter citrus. I'm going to go with orange rind but it seems to change. After this beer warms there's also a touch of freshly torn mint leaves that remind me of summer when mixed with the orange and mango. Smells delicious.

Double Simco is a high quality beer. The flavors follow hand in hand with the smell. The thing is, you can't tell about the bitterness through the smell but that's what makes this beer. The bitterness hits mid-palate and lingers and lingers and...Well, you get it. Not overpowering by any means. Just the way I like my IIPA's. Tastes puckeringly yummy.

This beer feels really good in my mouth. You can really feel the carbonation and bite not only on the top of the tongue but the sides and under your tongue as well. Bitterness in the throat and I could feel the numbness just a few seconds after my first pull and it just kept coming.

Drinkability is good. I'd give it higher because this is definately a good beer but it would almost feel like a waste drinking too much considering the tongue lashing you recieve. I'd be missing out on the flavor if I drank too much. With that said you need another drink after the last one.

Overall, after the waiting to get one of these I'm supremely glad I finally did. Wonderful IIPA. If you see this pick up a couple, and send me one cause I can't buy them here...

Pours an amber color, hazy, with particulate floating about. Nice thin streamers of bubbles making their way up from the bottom. Thick, tow finger pillowy , almond colored head with great retention. Clumpy, sticky lacing.

Big citrus aromas-Apricot, grapefruit, orange zest. Nice sweet caramel malt background.

Nice bitter hop taste-grapefruit, and to a lesser extent, pine. Really does follow the nose well, as the sweet malt backbone makes itself well known. Nice dry hops taste long into the lingering finish, accompanied by a strong alcohol warmth... slightly metallic, but still very good.

Body is medium, mouthfeel is smooth, slightly dry. Carbonation is mild.

I like this Double/Imperial IPA. Not outstanding, but a very solid representation all the same. An easy drinker for the style, very enjoyable.

Smoothly glowing dark burnt orange hue that reminds me of those plastic pumpkin decorations with thelight bulbs in em. A bone white capping of medium height slips away silently after pouring. Lacing in both fat and skinny strings are flung about in random patterns across the glass.

Ahhh...the Simcoe hops are in strong demand for a reason and the reason being they have enormous nose attributes and flavors that are very welcome to this hophound. Here, the nose is citrusy with tangerine, orange, and low melonish, tropicalness with nice earthy floral touches as well as a cannibus-like pungency deeply set within.

Taste is more of the same and quite nice at that. Take all that's noted in the nose and throw in a well-rounded toasty malt and biscuity center and you've got a winner. The meld of citrusy oranged mid-mild zest, earthy cannibus, and toasted edgy backing is quite a tasty treat. Nice balance with just enough sweetness with a smidgeon of caramel malt leading off the finish late after the cannibus and citrus round away.

Bold medium body with a tender smooth carbonation wrapped within the toasty malt and biting hoppy bitterness thats quite simply put, very satisfyingly ample. Slight floral hoppy heat seeps in after a bit as it finishes with a nice balance of the hops and toasty malt drizzled with caramel.

Yum, yum, yum, I've got Simcoe in my tum! A straight up super solid Dbl. IPA by Weyerbacher!
The drinkability is quite easy, but careful of the sneaky heat as that 9% does sink in soon after the glass has been drained.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 1-09-08. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Big thanks to jastack for this extra. I’ve been waiting 5-6 months to try this one. From a 22oz bomber:

Pours an amber color with a slightly yellow two inch crown. Thick and dense bubbles form an attractive soft pillow of foam. Great retention and some lacing as well.

Aromas of various citrus fruits; grapefruit, orange, lemon, nectarine, peach, pineapple, and mango make an incredible fruit salad aroma. Lots of biscuit malt, bread, toasted multi-grain bread. I’m impressed with the hoppy aroma but even more impressed with the balance of the malt. Some alcohol sneaks up as well but it comes off as cherries in syrup.

The taste has a crisp hop bitterness with some lemon peel, hints of bitter orange, and lots of bready and toasted malts to back up the hops.

Mouthfeel is above average, with a little syrupy feel but fluffy carbonation.

I really liked this one.

Review from 11/26/06

A - Rusty orange body with a bit of a haze to it. Huge, khaki head made up of varying sized bubbles. It was hard to control the head on the pour, came out of nowhere.

S - Big floral hop profile. Grapefruit and tangerine along with some pine. Strong.

T - Sweet fruity flavor starts this off (strawberry). Pine sap hops attack the tongue for the majority of the time from then on. Finishes with a slight floral citrus flavor. Aftertaste reminds you of the pine attack your tongue just took.

M - Medium bodied with sticky, syrupy hops. Carbonation is good even though it seemed it would be over the top on the pour.

D - Nicely crafted DIPA. Weyerbacher continues to impress.

Pours a medium amber color that turns out slightly cloudy. Te smell is all pine and hops, very strong. The taste is a light step down from the strong nose, but still very, very good. This s a solid, DIPA. One I’ would like to nag again.
