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.

rangerred (988) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2013
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 IIPA’s 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.

keanex (1578) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottled March 2, 2015.
Glass: Tired Hands wine glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber body with a beautifully messy white dense head on top.
Aroma: Nice mixture of marijuana, earthy notes, floral notes and a bit of grapefruit and orange. This is a unique combo that I haven’t really come across yet. Booze shows though.
Taste: Not even close to being overly bitter, though not really malty either. This is the lightest 11.25% beer I’ve come across. A tad boozy, toasty malts, bits of earthiness and maltiness by the end, but overall a bit boring.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Drinks way lighter than the ABV and drinks way milder outside of the booziness by the finish. Maybe my palate is a bit soaked up from the mead before but this lacks hugely.

Lovely aromas of fruity and floral. Well hopped fruity taste but also some bitter. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer but slightly bitter. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Clear golden with a white head. Fruity and dank hops aroma with some pine and "green" notes and an oniony hint. Flavor of "green" and fruity hops, some malt sweetness and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. Pretty easy-drinking for 11.25%.

NikkTwist (1842) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Slightly hazy yellow amber pour. Soft foamy ring on top. Not much lace. Lots of hops here. Strong oaky resins. Good balance between citrus and earthy/leafy hop flavors. Enough honey sweetness to keep the bitterness in check (mind you your tongue will still burn after multiple glasses of this). Feels big but - for 11.2% - the alcohol is impressively well hidden. Palate feels wider and more subtle than expected. So far, this is the best Knee Deep brew I gave had!

On tap Pale golden, nice fresh up front hoppy aroma. slick and heavy palate. Fairly bitter but that fresh hop flavor was not there. Big at 11+% but a bit disappointing.
