Simcoe is a hop that you either love or hate. It has a distinct earthy dankness that counterpoints the fruity aromas. Like an overripe fruit, or, and bear with us here, a musty locker room. Don't let that put you off! It's worth acclimatising the palate to Simcoe. This beer is a good showcase for it, West Coast style bitterness keeps it from cloying and delivers the hoppy goodness with balance.
