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.

This is a really exquisite IPA. The aroma is amazing - super citrus nose. Small yet frothy head and pours a bright orange color. Taste is similar to the nose - really delicious.

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2016
650mL bottle from Beer Cartel. Brewed 12/23/15 Hazy apricot-orange body, small creamy white head persists. Intense aroma - bags of pine, orange, passionfruit, mango, sweet cracker biscuit malt & toasted bread malts; touch of boozy spice in the midst. Immense body - creamy, thick, solid like a brick wall of texture, slick & oily, balance is great, booze lets you know but leads you astray. One thing that must be said, despite the overt hoppiness of this beer, the malt backbone is very nice - cracker biscuits, toasty, almost coconut & vanilla like; provides a fantastic sweet backbone for stacks of bitterness from big hop flavours of pine sap, unripe mango & honeydew, grapefruit rind & passionfruit skin (?). Bitterness is big, but certainly not out of balance. Tremendous double IPA, one of the best Iíve come across.

Hop_Hedonist (441) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2016
Jeez what a superb brew - Simcoe on steroids - massive hop impact - well balanced but unobtrusive malt - alcohol invisible until it hit my speech centre but luckily I shared the bottle otherwise all motor function would have malfunctioned.

The best thing about this beer is the aroma of the hops when you first crack open the bottle. Reminds of brewing your own beer and the smells of that process! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

copestx (61) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle from Mill Valley Whole Foods. Pours with a light head and light copper colour. Lots of pine, lemon and tangerine. Super boozy, especially in the aftertaste, and medium sweet. 4 months old, would have liked to try one more fresh.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: hazy golden blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: pine and hoppy resin. Very intensive nose. Impressive ! Taste: full body with high hoppy blast and very intensive pine. Fresh and good attenuation. Very drinkable! Aftertaste: wet bitterness and pine with alcohol notes. Superb TIPA ! I love it !

Fashawn (583) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
very interesting aroma, some pineapple, resin, tangerine, malty presence as cracker, some green bitterness. The flavour is less sweet than the aroma. A lot of tangerine, a lot of pine nidlees, but after a dry finish there is a lot of alcohol in the aftertaste. Lovely mouthfeel, smooth beer but not so fresh as it should be. Tropical notes in return, this isnít so fresh but neither so old, five months old, is too much for an ipa, for sure, but maybe even fresh the alcool is too present.

An excellent triple IPA. A hop heads heaven. Great nose but still an excellent balance of flavors. Mouth feel is top notch.
