Twin Sails Brewing Day-Blink Simcoe Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5% ABV | 35 IBU (C$5.35 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 24-Feb-2019, acquired 12-Apr-2019, reviewed 15-Apr-2019)

Appearance: cloudy straw with two fat fingers of fluffy white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone & tropical fruits, citrus, pale malt, hint of pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, short mild bitter finish. (4/5)

Another nice one from Twin Sails. A really good example of a single-hop implementation of Simcoe, giving big flavour despite the low ABV, yet no hint of cattiness. The bitterness is restrained on a soft, almost creamy body. (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
