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

looking forward another batch!
I love me some Simcoe hops so fresh and delicious! Love to pair it up with Citra and Centennial!

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.

If you like hoppy American beers, you love Simcoe
This is what makes IPAs, IPAs. I always pair it with a more citrusy hop (like Amarillo or Citra) and it steps the beer up into a great IPA.

Simcoe! Love it!
Most other online beer stores are out. Not here. Love it!!

Love this hard to find hop right now. MoreBeer has it! Thank you.
