Description

This wildly popular dual purpose hop has been becoming more and more prevalent in the modern beer scene ever since it was originally released back in 2000 by Yakima Chief Ranches. Simcoe® is now a favorite among craft brewers and homebrewers alike for its versatility and delicious flavors of citrus, pine, and passion fruit character. High alpha acid content allows it to be used as the main bittering base, while its high oil content makes it an impressive aroma addition when added late in the boil, during whirlpool, or as dry hops during or after fermentation. Simcoe® has a smooth bitterness met with aromas of earth, citrus, and cannabis. Use liberally in just about any style, including Pale Ales, IPAs, Wheats, Saisons, Ambers, and especially hop-forward Hazy IPAs or Hoppy Lagers.

Hop Statistics:
Alpha Acids: 12.0 – 14.0%
Beta Acids: 4.0 – 5.0%
Alpha-Beta Ratio: 2.4 – 3.5
Cohumulone: (% of alpha acids): 15 – 20%
Total Oils in mls per 100 grams dried: 2.0 – 2.5
Similar Hop Varieties: Summit, Magnum, Citra®, Mosaic®

How can you go wrong with Simcoe
Whether the hops are fruity or pissy, you cannot go wring with adding a little Simcoe to your brew. This hop took my beer from "the beer is great" to "Damn that's an incredibly amazing brew" with the just a 40% substitution of Simcoe.

Best hop for IPA's
Simcoe is the best hop for IPA's. Turns out great single hop IPA's, and blends very well if you want to add it with others -plays nice I guess I mean :)

I love the packaging 8 oz and 1lb bags come in from MoreBeer because they are zip topped so you can just squeeze out thair and freeze for later. You don't have to tear the bag to get it open, then transfer to another bag to refreeze.

Great for dry hopping
I was really worried when I smelled the hops, and it smelled like cat urine. I dry hopped 1.5 oz along with 0.5 oz of Amarrilo. The result was one of my best IPAs. I ordered more

Great condition!
Hop quality is the reason I switched from another online HBS to Morebeer. These Simcoe hops (8oz resealable bag) are the best quality Simcoe I've ever received.
