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.

I love this beer! Drinks so easy to be high alcohol. I donít find the alcohol to be overpowering as some have said because when itís fresh you really can taste citrusy pears and piney apples! one of my favorites.

Surprisingly good. You canít hide the alcohol at 11+% but the simcoe balances it well. Not too sweet and some nice citra flavor. Well executed triple IPA.

tia (1010) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy caramel with thick creamy head. Smells very thick and caramelly with some grappa and some white pepper- perfumey over all. Very sweet then better. Heavy.

Salmoniform (991) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Poured from bottle to Glass. Clear Amber hue with creamy white head that held a ring. Aroma is huge papaya, melon, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus oil, caramel, ethanol. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a great hop bitterness following and a warm ethanol finish. Overall this brew is fantastic.

Lectvay (157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Itís pungent, intense hoppy aroma, but also lots of alcohol, so thereís a chemical burn to the smell. Taste is great, sweet and bitter, intense.

this Triple IPA smells awful, kind of like the BOMB, but it is incredibly smooth for its ABV (11.25%). would have rated it higher, but I enjoy the smell of great IPAs too much.
