Rod J Beer Review: Mikkeller Simcoe Hopped IPA

Out of Denmark comes Mikkeller and their Simcoe Hopped IPA,
a 7.3% ABV and 100 IBU beer that just pours out a nice dark amber copper color
from can to class. Once poured, the carbonation races to the top to create a
large off-white cream colored head that sits on the tip of the beer like a
foamy pillow of goodness. It’s just waiting for you to dive in and take that
first sip. It teases you with the aromas of grapefruit, orange and tangerine,
beckoning you to pick it up and drink it as you wonder what is behind that hazy
veil on the glass. But yes the taste, that’s what we want to know. How does it
taste? That is the question asked by the same reverence as when Brad Pitt asked
“What’s in the Box” in Seven. But don’t worry; this one does have a refreshing happiness
at the end of the journey. How does this journey end? Check out my video to
find out…
