Spice of LIfe : Simcoe The Spice of Life series is coming back around with another great brew, made with a hop that’s become a darling of American craft brewing: Simcoe.


Simcoe is a classic, bold, high alpha hop with potent aromatics that’s perfect for IPAs. Even amongst the most complex hops, Simcoe is prized for its depth – piney, woody, grapefruit and citrus notes are at the forefront with spicy notes of onion and garlic in the background. Its intensity spans multiple citrus fruits and suggests blackcurrant and berries as well. If you like your hops dank and pungent, tracking down Spice of Life Simcoe is a must.
