Hopworks Urban Brewery
A Note on This Beer
Cicerones are the sommeliers of the beer world. It’s an expensive education but these distinguished drinkers are trained to deconstruct a beer on the strength of their palate alone.
Many lessons center on fierce hop knowledge and if this is your area of interest, Hopworks IPX Simcoe IPA is a beer you should pay attention to. It’s a super tasty, easy drinking lesson on one of the most versatile hops on the craft beer scene.
A dual-purpose hop, Simcoe yields intense aromas and bitter potency to IPAs – a 12-14% alpha acid content speaks to its dominant nature. With intense dry hopping, IPX showcases the strong aroma and flavor complexity that makes this cone a favorite for bold hoppy ales.
Refreshing and clean pine, pineapple and woodsy citrus are fresh and exhilarating against a barely there malt backdrop of whisper thin crackers and slightly sweet grains. The bitterness has a rigidity that cleanses the palate without overwhelming – creating an almost austere finish.
When it comes to hop forward brews, Hopworks is easily one of the Pacific Northwest greats. The brewery’s Ace of Spades and Hopworks IPA have become pillars of the style that other breweries aspire to create. You couldn’t ask for more seasoned instructors to fine tune your hop skills.
If you’re looking to build your own cicerone foundation without the crazy expense, this brightly flavorful beer will definitely get you started.
