Double Simcoe IPA

Nice pour in terms of the head and retention (real creamy and thick looking). Sticky lace. Color is a dark, burned orange and lacks the clarity I would like to see – a couple of ticks off the appearance score for the cloudy body, otherwise looks super.
Hoppy nose, but it has a large degree of sweetness at the same time. This is a duplicate of the taste. Hops up front, but quickly sweet malts smooth out the beer rapidly. Nice. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, even as far as to say this drinks like nitro pour! Delicious.
Alcohol and sweetness meld nicely together and the hops although large, are surprisingly not really what I take away from this beer. What I do take is a really creamy, sweet and delicious brew. Drinks well below the ABV – pleasing.
Very, very enjoyable.
