Pours a clear light copper color With huge head. Aroma Is dank citrus hops with a dirty feet note and barnyard funk. Taste follows the aroma with some spice notes and a warming sensation all thru my body. This is a monster hop bomb aswel as a monster malt bomb. Awesome danky beer!!

Benzai (9431) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle [from trade with dap] @ home. Nice clear lightly orange mostly golden color, medium to full sized lightly creamy off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops, resin, pine. Just what I was hoping for and what I am looking for in a DIPA. Taste malts, loads of sticky resinous hops, pine, spruce, bitterness and a touch of grapefruit. Very very much of the sticky resinous piney bitterness indeed. Lingering hoppy resinous piney bitter. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, sticky texture. Oh yes, a full on incredibly tasty imperial IPA. Love it!

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 2/2/15. Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Aroma has a very dank hop aroma with strong notes from the Citra. The taste is overly hoppy with a gray smooth flavor. An outstanding triple IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Simtra may have some conpetition as KDís 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 headís delight."

bnoel09 (453) - Elk Grove, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Poured from the bomber into a snifter glass. Medium amber color with a thin cream colored head. Aroma has some caramel malt notes with a big dose of hops and some orange. Very fresh wet hop smell with floral and resinous notes. Flavor has some sweet malty notes, but quickly gives way to a huge dose of hops with some light peppery notes. Mouthfeel is thinner than I would have expected, but it just makes it that much easier to drink! This definitely has some bitterness, but it is actually incredible drinkable considering the ABV and IBU. Overall this is quite delicious!

It is great for its kick, 11% goes down so easy. It is a slightly cloudy amber. There are nice floral hops on the nose. THere is a sticky hop front to the taste that fades to a bitter-sweet hop finish that stais the palate and fades slowly.
