Released in 2000, Simcoe is a unique, proprietary hop variety. Aromas are often described as woody and walnutty as well as passion fruit, pine, earthy and citrus. With alpha acids at 13.7%, Simcoe is a favourite for bittering in craft IPAs, and popularized by Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder: an Imperial IPA. Simcoe has very low levels of cohumulone, lending excellent bitterness without that harsh, unpleasant bite. And with crazy-high levels of myrcene oils, Simcoe offers an intense, pungent aroma making it an excellent dual-use hop. If you’re looking for a single-hop IPA this summer, try Simcoe! Available at Barley’s Homebrewing Supplies in whole leaf.
