Moody Ales Super Simcco – American IPA at 7.2% ABV (C$4.09 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 31-Oct-2019, reviewed 10-Nov-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of creamy white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, tropical fruit, caramel, citrus, earth. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish medium bitter finish. (3/5)

Not bad for being single-hopped with Simcoe, with a bit of a range of pine and fruit character going on. More to the point, there are none of the off-flavours I sometimes associate with Simcoe. It definitely falls short of being “juicy”, though, despite its elevated sweetness, and could definitely stand to be brighter. Merely OK. (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze
