The cousin of Simtra, but brewed with only Centennial and Chinook hops. Need we say more?

Has a strong very hoppy aroma. The taste is extremely bitter and hoppy yet relatively smooth. Definitely drinkable.

In short: A brutal palate destroyer. Meh.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is brutally piney pushed forward by alcohol fumes. Taste has the expected caramelized and honeyed cereals. Then piney hops, more piney hops and then some more. Maybe a little floral edge too, but mostly piney. Moderately resinous. Some alcohol heat noticeable a bit less than expected for a beer this size. Sweetness sensation is very much kept in check because of the bitterness and mouth-drying astringency. Annoyingly astringent with the alcohol sucking the mouth dry although there is not too much of an alcohol flavor. Full body with medium carbonation. Really aggressive, the first glass was kind of ok but the second half of the bottle became a chore to drink, this yet another brutal palate destroyer. This is something that can do well in a tasting, but don’t drink IPAs 4oz at a time. Calling a beer Hop Shortage and make it bitter as hell is almost as ironic as going to the beach to strangle a lifesaver.

Not overpowering for a triple IPA. Very drinkable. Great hoppy aroma, but with a sufficiently apparent malt base holding it together.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma of grainy malt and earthy hop. Sweet and grainy malt flavor with a grassy hop finish. I wonder if they held onto this one too long before sharing it.

Koskela (290) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Smells very sweet malty and has a good hop balance much like a tripple should have. Its pretty hazy and golden in color with a small white head. Its full bodied and pretty sweet but the ibus kick the sweetness down in the aftertaste. It gives u a mouth full of tiny bubbles. Its almost like you can chew this brew. Not a bad brew. Very typical for a triple and the hop bitterness is Delicious.

Poured yellow/orange golden from the bottle. Very strong citrus and floral aromas starting from the pour which I loved! I got a tangerine flavor with light sweets and a bold hop taste left on the palate. Be ready!

Oh my! Citrusy aroma with a lot of depth in the smell with a hint of papayas and sweet fruit. Really intriguing aroma. The appearance is awesome and I have no complaints. What a perfect palate. Really. Citrusy front, decent sweetness in the middle and bitterness towards the end. The lingering taste is one of warm and citrus and a bit of bitterness. Knee deep brewery might be new favorite brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It is a light colored Triple IPA they say it 11.3 % but it does not taste it. it not real malty like other Triple IPA that I have had but it has a light taste with little light. Aroma is slight resin color golden, light sweetness, light bitter. Body medium body, slightly creamy, average carbonation, astringent, finish. As strange as it seem this is one of the High ABV. that you can get that I would not like to have more that one. But is is a good beer

Pours semitransparent golden orange with a thin off white head. The nose is light citrus, caramel, booze, bready, pine and tropical fruit. The taste is high sweet, medium high bitter. The texture is oily and slick, the body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber courtesy of Hopfilter. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a decent white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is faint, but I am getting citrus, pine, malt, and alcohol. Taste is much flatter than expected. Mostly malt, pine and alcohol. Actually though the alcohol isn’t as overpowering as you’d think for an 11.5%er. Its definitely present and up front though. Not much of a finish. Nice hop bitterness for a second, then all malts. Full bodied, oily texture rich with hop oils, moderate carbonation. Not bad, but other than the high alcohol content this doesn’t have anything special going for it.
