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.

Wow what an intense blast of hops! Lots of resin in the palate. Tons of grapefruit and citrus, with a mild pine overnote. Overall, what a great beer!

Bottle pour a few months back. My first real attempt at a Triple Style IPA. I was blown away by the hoppiness and mellowed out grapefruit and pine flavors.

22 oz. bottle served in a . Bottled 7/22/13. Picked up on my recent trip to Lake Tahoe at a local bottle shop. A: Pours a solid amber color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin, bubbly wring. Mild soapy lace. S: Candied grapefruit and honey dew melon up front with a touch of mango. Light boozy notes with a touch of sweet, crystallized sugar. Light scallion notes bounce in the periphery around the sweetness. T: Only mild booze up front. Very fruity and citrusy. Nice and strong malt backbone provides a little sweetness and breadines. The booze then kicks then back in on the finish. Definitely drinks like it’s 11%. As it warms some light grassy notes with a touch of residual bitterness lingers on the finish. M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation level. Slightly sticky. O: Far too boozy for my liking. I usually top out around 9.5% or 10% when it comes to my enjoyment of double (or in this case triple) IPA’s. The alcohol notes become to to sharp and boozy instead of nice and fruity. Not bad, but definitely wouldn’t pick this up again. Serving type: bottle 08-20-2013

Super hoppy brew with overwhelming pine and grapefruit notes. Not for the faint of heart, but worth it if you can handle it!

22. Thanks c! Pours a clear medium gold with light lace. Bright fruity nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Hides the alcohol well. Mango, orange, and grapefruit, all unified into one coherent flavor note. Verrrry dry finish. Nice.

MacBoost (1536) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle, labeled 11.25% ABV. Pours a clear light amber. Aromas of citrus, some pine. While the aroma is not outstanding, when you put this liquid in your mouth there is simply oohing that compares to it. It is amazing. Slightly sweet with a great hoppy expression of juicy citrus fruits. Very, very nice. Finishes on a bitter note but without the brash, abrasive harshness that usually accompanies hop bombs. This is top notch, by any measure. Bravo.

2013-09-01. Crisp dark yellow body nice foamy white head. 3++ Aroma is quite hoppy with muddled fruity hops and light alcohol alcohol. Lightly resiny/musky quality to the hops. Flavour is fairly bitter, light tropical fruit character, moderate alcohol throughout. Warming in the throat. Average plus not quite medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. Interesting, decent and mostly enjoyable but I am not quite sure if I want more. Bottle from San Diego shared by a friend.

Bomber Bottle share. Aroma is a really good hop smell. Appearance is bronze with lots-0-head. Taste is super hoppy, but good. Palate is hoppy. Overall, good for being as hoppy as I thought it would be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Dusky orange pour, heavy lacing. Huge nose of leafy green hop juice with pineapple and tangerine. Pretty strong hop blast in the flavor, melding with alcohol burn late. Initially tasty, even if a bit like chewing on hop pellets -- but I can’t see myself drinking a whole bomber of this stuff. A small glass is enough. Maybe I need to admit that there is such a thing as too-hoppy beer.
