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.

Honestly one of the best, "big" IPAs you'll find out there. Very crisp with tons of citrus to wake you up. This is one that you really must drink within the first couple of weeks of bottling otherwise you'll get an entirely different, much less enjoyable, beer. --- Save the unicorns!

b3shine (7402) - Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks JohnnyJ). Looks good; a deep (albeit nice and transparent) orange, but itís a triple, so what the hey. Smells of HUGE hops AND pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good stuff.

fletchfighters (1324) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2013
bomber into a rocks glass caramel amber color, sticky white collar. good lacing. Big pungent citrus nose with some sweetness in the background. Big caramel backbone with a lot of pungent citrus in the taste. Very pungent, very dank. Bitter and dirty orange, pine, grapefruit. Very oily, big feel with some prickly carbonation to smooth it out. Big acid finish. ABV kicks in the the end. Prickly carbonation really helps this out. If you like dank IIIPAís this is a winner.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours light, no head. Pungent nose. Strong citrus flavor. The high ABV somewhat screws this brew up, just too boozy. Otherwise a solid IIIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABUSEDGOAT (2424) - California, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Slightly darker amber colored, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, citrus, slightly tropical, some caramel, alcohol. Fairly full bodied, moderate bitterness, somewhat alcoholic. Itís pretty tasty but itís not the perfect hop bomb either.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
22oz bottle from Cask níFlask, San Jose- bottled 27/09/13, drank right now. Sober. Deep copper-amber with an undulating white foam. Nose of bright floral peach, strawberry chew, blackcurrant and pine; stewed tea and lychee hop slathered in honey sweetness and peppery booze. Hot front with orange liqueur and honey, medicinal (throat sweet) honey and lemon bitterness, dragonfruit and red apple undercurrents losing the battle to the alcohol. Good multi-coloured hop-scented belches- too little too late. Coming to the conclusion I donít much care for high ABV hop monsters where the nuances, aromatics and pungency of the hops get sledgehammered by sweetness and heat.

A: Mildly Amber/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, White Head, Some Lacing S: Piney, Grapefruit Rind T: Grapefruit Rind, Piney M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Drying, Mildly Bitter Overall, very bright with the hops on the nose but a little bitter on the taste.

conway (2210) - - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel malt and piney hops. Taste is shockingly malt forward. Tons of caramel malt. Extremely bitter with notes of pine and citrus. Significant alcohol heat. Thick syrupy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Great balance but still intense.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, mango, pineapple, peach, lemon, and pine. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger yellow-tinted off-white head that has decent retention before it finally settles into a soapy film. There is a decent amount of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy citrus, pineapple, and mango. There is some light caramel in the background. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit, lighter pine, and a touch of alcohol. Itís medium-full bodied with mild carbonation with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, it tastes and feels like the big beer it is.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 6, 2013
very big and bold, lots of crystal sweetness and pine, but some candy sugar and caramel to balance in the finish. a tiny bit one dimensional, but delivers where you would expect. good at hiding the huge ABV, also. a big hoppy beer with some finesse.
