Weyerbacher – Double Simcoe IPA

4 January 2011 by , No Comments

Well, the honor is certainly all mine.  Knoxbeersnobs Rob and Don have given me the honor of reviewing a few beers.  It seems this time of year has us all a little busy.  Not to worry, I am happy to help.  First up is Weyerbacher’s Double Simcoe IPA.

It’s no secret that I am an IPA fiend, so naturally this was the first brew I grabbed from the recent pilgrimage to Bruisin’ Ales.  In keeping with most IPA’s this one poured a slim, sticky head and filled the pint with a beautiful copper color.  The Simcoe Hops give it a mild pine hint and very subtle pineapple/citrus notes.  At 9% ABV, it was almost too subtle.  Less complex than some, this one was pretty easy to drink, even at 9%.

I’m all for strong IPA’s and this one fit the bill.  All in all, a smooth drink and a go-to for IPA fans.
