Weyerbacher Double Simcoe Cask

Double Simcoe poured a cloudy, apple cider color with a thin, pen width, white head. The aroma offers up plenty of grapefruit and citrusy hops. The body is smooth, with little carbonation. The mouthfeel is super juicy, with some sweetness and touches of dark fruit. Plenty of fresh hops on the finish lead to a blast of bitterness that linger and leave the palate plenty dry.

Overall, this is a big IPA, that is still a sipper despite its ability to hide the higher ABV extremely well. A well made beer with a very sturdy backbone, the casked version is a little bit more rounded out then a kegged or bottled version.
