Color: Medium Dark Yellow.
Malts: No Information
Bottle Code: I found a laser-etched code on the bottom of the bottle but I don't know what it means. I've contacted the brewery to see if they can explain it to me. (1623 A2 0616)
PourA half pinky of a white creamy head formed.
LookIt wasn't very carbonated.
There was a lot of stuff floating around.
AromaGrapefruit, mango, other citrus. Very pungent. Very delightful.
TasteVery citrusy. none of the normal funky Simcoe flavor.
Over time, my palette does get fatigued. However with a few minutes between sips, my palette remains fresh.
VerdictThis is a very good, flavorful, IPA. For $4.49 per 22oz bomber, I would definitely buy this on a regular basis.
Based on the style, I'd give this beer a "A"
