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.

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.

Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some resinous pine notes as well as some orange and pineapple. The flavor is also quite hoppy. I get a lot of pineapple and resin notes, as well as some sweet candy notes, biscuit malt and low bitterness. Fairly sweet for a Double IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

IIIPAs are the new black.... Pours golend straw with nice lasting head. Aroma is grapefruit rind, mandarin orange, grass, and a little onion. Taste is more of the same with nice bitterness balanced by alcohol sweetness. Very sharp citrus flavors and a tinge of that onion scallion that I sometimes get from citra.

Shared bottle at Edinburgh tasting. Pours clear golden with a big white foamy head. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit and grapefruit. Taste is crisp, dry and bitter. Light sweet alcohol at the finish.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Still golden body, clinging film head. Visciously hoppy nose, but ABV hidden well. Sweet as you like. Initial taste is silky smooth, a sexy hop reveal. Big packed in crystal doesnt have any burrying effect on sweetness throughout. Tinselly fruit gum chewiness. Serious burn on the linger but I was overbraced on the finish, without a sordidly clean whistle before the 11.25% hits paydirt.

Bottle, Gunnar Tasting. Thanks Pete via BenH!
