The Gargoyle

<< < (3/3)

Yeah, I know Simcoe is potent, but it's one of my favorites. I'm not necessarily trying overpower anything. I'm trying to find the perfect late addition hop blend for me. Many people like the Simcoe and Amarillo combo. Though I think it's good, I like them both better away from each other.

Tasted this today. It's very good, but strange. The first drink is overwhelming summit and its oniony flavor. The next drink I get slammed with a berry like taste that I'm assuming I'm getting from the mosaic. The Simcoe seems to be in the background, which never seems to be the case. I like it.

Hated simcoe first time I tried it. Loved it ever since.

Simcoe is pretty much a staple in my IPAs. The flavor is definitely there, it's just sitting in the back seat.

Mosaic is just as oily as Simcoe, if not more so. It's like a super Simcoe with some extra fruitiness. It's a lot like crack, actually. *twitches* Pardon me while I go pour a brew...

Mosaic is a cross of Simcoe and Nugget. I sag it is like Simcoe with much less cat pee.
