COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Simtra Triple IPA delivers a punch in the face with its very danky hop aroma derived from Simcoe and Citra hops. You wanted more hops you got them.

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger white head. Considering the abv, the head retention and lacing are spectacular. HUGE hit of hops on the nose. Tons of tropical fruit from the Simcoe and Citra hops. There is a touch of caramel underneath along with overripe fruit. There is some dank too. All around, it is one of the best aromas I have ever experienced on a IIPA. The flavor continues the hops assault with overripe fruit, orange marmalade, and sweet caramel. Mango and orange dominate the fruity aspect and there is a little less dankness compared to the aroma. Vanilla and caramel undertones along with a very assertive bitterness that is necessary to balance out the malt sweetness. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden providing a pleasant warmth in the throat and chest. Quite impressive. Mouthfeel is just slightly sticky. Overall, one of the best IIPAís out there. I put this up with Hopslam as being the best IIPA available on the market. Incredible balance and tons of flavor combined with a big punch from the alcohol. A beer to seek out and pick up lots of.

A dark orange. A bright hip aroma. With citrus, pine and a lightly honeyed malt backbone. In the mouth it is far lighter than something like Ruin10 (which I also had a growler of this week) sure itís smooth but not too weighty. The bitterness is light and springy, keeping the tongue fresh for the next sip. This is what a ridiculously strong IPA should taste like.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and spruce for the hops, light soap for the yeast with dried apricot and alcohol in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber/beige. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and moderate to heavy alcoholic finish. Excellent DIPA, full of piney hops and a nice bite in the flavor.

22 picked up at the Boise COOP for about $9ish.. a little pricey given the other DIPAís available locally. Clear golden.. perfectly golden with a nice foamy white head... looks amazing. Fruity citrus is huge and unapologetic.. light herbaceous elements with warmth.. Bitter up front.. pithy citrus and lesser fruity floral notes as it warms up.. Knee Deep is a very welcome in Boise.. The bottles are pretty representative of West Coast IPAís.

Tap at Billco, Napa. Pours fairly light golden color almost no head, minimal lacing. Not unsurprising given that itís an 11% IIPA. Aroma is juicy citrus, orange, and tangerine with some floral notes. Dank hops. Flavor is candied tangerine orange , lemon and caramel sweetness. Hoppy but a good balance. Really excellent. Itís hoppy but itís just so good. Knee Deep does west coast hops so well.
