Terrific hop for bittering and dry hopping!! Review by Jeremy S.

(Posted on 3/14/14)

Product Rating:

This is one of my favorite hops, period! It gives a nice citrus and pine aroma! It is terrific for both, bittering and dry hopping. When it comes to aroma and bittering, it doesn't get much better than this hop in my personal opinion. Wonderful for IPAs/Double IPAs, and this is a hop that I tend to reach for on a regular basis. Priced well and has great effect; if you haven't used this particular hop before and like IPAS, don't hesitate to try it!!

I'm enjoying teh Simco IPA kit thats sold here. It's my first major exposure to a purely Simcoe beer and it's very good. The bittering is smooth, it has a citrusy taste and a good aroma. It also dry hops well.

I really like Simcoe hops alot. They bitter well and taste clean. I use them for late addition and dry hopping also. The aroma is like a citrus pine forest mix, very nice.

Good aromatic hop and a good choice for dry hopping. A perfect example is Double Agent IPA. I've made all Simcoe IPAs and really like them. Midwest sells a great IPA called Simcoe Select that perfectly displays the Simcoe.

I made a Simcoe IPA that came out well. Simcoe has a nice taste and aroma, and it bitters well too. Its a smooth bitterness rather than a harsh one some traditional bittering hops have.

I first was exposed to this via the Simcoe Select IPA kit sold by Midwest. I really enjoyed it and tried commercial beers that use Simcoe and enjoyed them. I now try and use it in my IPAs. As a bittering hop it's smooth. As a flavor and aroma hop is has a citrusy smell and taste. Its an all around good hop.

This (and Amarillo) are quickly becoming my favorite hops for IPAs. Great for both flavor and aroma. I love this hop!

Simcoe really reminds me of cascade flavor wise. However, it is a much more versatile hops that works better for bittering and aroma. The aroma of this hops is really awesome. I find that it gives my Pale Ales a fruity and earlty/pine flavor.

Dry Hop Experiment Review by Wayne

(Posted on 4/9/13)

Product Rating:

My friends and I read about a DIY dry hop experiment that allows you to really experience character of a number of hops in one sitting.

Take a bunch of bottles of a lightly flavored commercial lager. Open them up, put one gram of hops in each bottle. We chose seven varieties of hops including this one. We made three example bottles of each hop type (21 total) and then closed the bottles and put them away for two days.

After two days the beers had really taken on the character of each of the unique hops. I would recommend starting with refrigerated beers and keeping them refrigerated so you lose a minimal amount of carbonation (gas is more soluble in cold liquid).

These hops were almost twice as much money at LHBS.

Give me some Simcoe Review by Chris

This hops has only been around since 2000, and growing in popularity. With a piney, woodsy profile combined with a hint of citrus this hop works great in single profile pale ales and IPAs and lots of other beers.
