Review: Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA

An Imperial/Double IPA brewed by
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.

Easton, Pennsylvania USA

ABV: 9%

Glassware: Tulip

Had on tap and the Gingerman. Hops, hops and more hops in this one. There are hops and some citrus tones in the aroma. There are a ton of hops on first taste and they hit you going all the way back. The head is full, fluffy and white and the lacing this beer leaves is great. After the initial shock I settled in and really could take my time drinking this one. The alcohol never showed up but just a sweet backbone with a ton of hop spicing. A great double/imperial.

Beer Advocate food pairings: I honestly wouldn’t suggest eating with this but this is what they say: Cuisine (Barbecue) Cheese (peppery; Monterey / Pepper Jack, sharp; Blue, Cheddar, pungent; Gorgonzola, Limburger) Meat (Game, Grilled Meat, Salmon) 

My score: 4
