From the brewer

100% Simcoe hops make up this beer from start to finish! It is named for the location in the experimental hop yard in Yakima, WA, where it was first created. Simcoe is grown by 3 families in the Yakima area, from all of whom we buy this particular hop (and other hops) — Carpenter, Perrault, and Smith. This is one of several beers we plan to make in our NEW “Hop Grower’s Series” highlighting certain hops from our growers! It has that trademark Simcoe nose with citrus and pine, nice bitterness and tasty hop flavors round it out.

Similar to the Whole Cone Madness, but adds a kind of savory, uric tang (and maybe some more resinous character?) to add a perfect note of contrast to the overall flavor. The best beer of the batch, I think - better than Pliny.
