This beer is all about showcasing Simcoe. Simcoe is one of hte most prevalent american Hops, and was widely used to popularize the Pale Ales of the early 90's. Huge citrus tones with a healthy dose of bitter pine and herbs and a crisp, snappy floral finish. Bright in color, crisp in finish, long in flavor.
Hop aroma and ﬂavor are medium to high and can display qualities from a wide variety of hops from all over the world. Overall hop character is assertive. The term Session IPA describes a category of beers marketed for their hop-dominant flavor profiles at 'sessionable' levels of alcohol. While this is typically 3.2-4.6% ABV, a few have stretched the definition. This class of beers arose c. 2010 out of the Craft Beer Tradition as a reaction to the trend of increasingly strong beers and greater public appreciation for hoppier profiles around the globe. It is differentiated from American Pale Ale by typically being lower in alcohol and usually having more hop-dominant profiles. While hops used are typically American Pacific Northwest and New Zealand, proprietary/experimental and South African and other hops may also factor into a Session IPA hop bill.
