Simcoe Hops Overview

Simcoe hops, released in 2000 by Select Botanicals Group, have become a favorite in the craft beer and homebrewing industries. Known for their versatility, Simcoe hops offer a high alpha acid content (12-14%) suitable for both bittering and aroma.

They deliver complex notes of stone fruit, pine, and citrus zest, with additional flavors of passionfruit, apricot, and pine resin.

These dual-purpose hops go well in various beer styles, particularly IPAs and American ales, making them a popular choice for brewers aiming for bold, fruity flavors.

Ideal Beer Styles

Pale Ale

Pale Ales are known for their balanced bitterness and moderate alcohol content. Simcoe hops provide a resinous pine and citrus profile, complementing the malt backbone of Pale Ales, adding a refreshing complexity to the brew.

IPA & Double IPA

IPAs are hop-forward beers with higher bitterness and alcohol content. Simcoe hops deliver punchy bitterness and complex fruity notes, making them ideal for both traditional and modern IPA styles, enhancing their bold, vibrant flavors.


Lagers are crisp and clean with a smooth finish. Simcoe hops can add a unique twist with earthy and fruity aromas, enhancing the clean malt flavors without overpowering them, offering a subtle yet distinctive character.

Single Hop Beers

Single-hop beers showcase the unique attributes of one hop variety. Simcoe hops are ideal due to their dual-purpose nature, providing both bitterness and a full spectrum of flavors, highlighting their versatility and complexity.

New England IPA

New England IPAs are known for their hazy appearance and juicy, fruity hop character. Simcoe hops contribute to the tropical and stone fruit flavors, enhancing the signature juicy profile of this popular style.

Wheat Beer

Wheat beers are light and refreshing with a cloudy appearance. Simcoe hops add a modern twist with notes of citrus and pine, providing a fresh, invigorating dimension to traditional wheat beers.

Simcoe Hops Substitutes

Amarillo Hops

Amarillo hops are an excellent substitute for Simcoe due to their similar citrus and floral profile, with a special emphasis on orange-like flavors.

When substituting with Amarillo, be mindful of its lower alpha acid content (8-11%), meaning you may need to adjust the quantity to achieve the desired bitterness level.

Mosaic Hops

Mosaic hops are known for their complex array of tropical and fruity flavors, including blueberry, tangerine, and papaya, providing a similar depth of flavor as Simcoe.

With a high alpha acid range (11-13%), Mosaic can be used for both bittering and aroma, similar to Simcoe. However, its intense flavor profile may require adjustments based on taste preference, ensuring a well-rounded brew.

Cascade Hops

Cascade is often used as a substitute due to its floral, citrus, and grapefruit characteristics, aligning well with the citrusy side of Simcoe. Cascade’s significantly lower alpha acid content (5-7%) means you’ll need to use more for bittering purposes. Its less pungent nature makes it better suited for beers where a milder hop profile is desired, perfect for creating a balanced and approachable beer.
