GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at Salted Pig. Complete sheets of lace on a clear orange. Super sticky nose. Sweet IPA overall, but not cheesy and dusty. Butterscotch candy with pine needles. Heavy pine finish. Rich, mild nut and tannic dryness and harsh bitterness. Still drinkable.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled 02/20/15. (El Cerrito Liquors) Corona, CA. Clear golden colour with a tiny off-white head. Orange, citrus, pine, strong bitterness and strong sweet maltiness in the aroma. This smells fresh. The flavour is strong... strong bitterness, piney, resiny and citrusy hops, sugary sweetness, syrup and mild maltiness. Strong indeed. Mild notes of 11.1% but well hidden I have to say. Not a bad one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Date on bottle reads 08/11/14. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, dot or two of lace. Medium to bigger body. Feels lighter than 11%. Lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Moderate sweet taste, some bigger bready malty caramel character, but great big amarillo hop to back it up, too. Piney, kind of spicy, mild citrus (orange peel), moderate bitter, less bitter than you’d expect. Alcohol hides very well, way too easy drinking, good sweet malt balance helps with that I think.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Bomber from Whole Foods and Capone’s, and my cherry popper for this brewer. Pours clear golden with fluffy, 3-finger, white head that provides spare lacing. Nose is intense, huge piney hops, pineapple, honeydew, mango, white pepper. Tastes rich, very hoppy, with big notes of resin, pine, pineapple, mango, tangerine, melon, and white pepper. A bit hot late. Very complex and juicy. This one is a hop lover’s wet dream.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Some kind of fruity aroma, too sweet. Flavor follows the same lines. Sweet and not tasty. Not my thing.

marcus (8003) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a very light floral aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that quickly goes from sweet to very bitter.

"Simtra may have some conpetition as KD’s best beer, and that is saying something. Big. pungent aroma of hop oils...citrus and tropical fruit and a whole lot of cat peed on my christmas tree. not quite the enamel eater in the mouth as the nose would have you believe, but almost. fantastic hop head’s delight."

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Big summer fruit and grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and caramel flavor with pine. Medium bodied. Good bitterness.Caramel and earth lingers with grapefruit, summer fruit, and pine. Seems a bit muddled.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
65 cl bottle @ tiong. Bottled(?) 09.02.?
Aroma has strong citras notes with caramel and citrus. Also some sweet malty tones and caramel.Flavour has very strong boozy tones, fruits, caramel and hoppy tones, Burning alcohol too. Not sure what to think of this, but booze comes through too much anyway. Also too much glue here at the second glass.

22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a weak light tan head. The aroma offers up big resiny sticky smelling notes filled in by plenty of hop sweet citrusy and pine aromas and booze. The hops are largely pine like and bitter citrus trudging along in a pond of thick sticky maltiness. The taste is smooth and slick and sweet and resiny and syrupy sticky resiny hoppy stickiness, wow! There’s big bold pine and tangelo and pineapple and alcohol. Goodness. This is a sipper. It starts with modest citrus hop flavor and thick malts and then runs directly into booze, citrus hop and pine hop resiny bitterness and then sticky sweet malts. Git all messed up drinkin’ a 22 of this.
