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.

22 ounce bottle from Jungle Jim’s. No idea what the date is. Pours orange with tangerine and citrus. Pine. Nice hop profile. I can barely detect 11.25%. But is it all that much different than Hoptologist?

Bomber purchased at Barons Market in Rancho Bernardo ($9.99). Pours a hazy orange-amber with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma full of bright fruit (peach, apricot, lychee, citrus, some pineapple), pine forest, caramel, and some mild booze. Flavor of spicy caramel and lots of hops with notes of grapefruit, pine needles, tropical fruit, orange soda, and peppery hops. Not too bitter but has some alcohol burn in the finish. Good but not as well executed as some of the other IIIPA’s out there (notably Exponential Hoppiness, PtY, 120 Minute). (146, 769)

Bottle shared by Brian, thanks! Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a a combination of pine and onion with a bit of sweet grain. Flavor has onion up front with some resinous pine and heavy sweet grain.

dfearnley (1074) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
660mL bottle to flute Aroma of flowers, plums, grapefruit, papaya, faint spruce, and tropical fruits. Appearance is a reddish amber with a decent white head white with minimal lacing. Strong fruity flavour with strong, but not overpowering bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel is full bodied, and oh so oily and silky that it coats the tongue. Best beer I've had in a long time.

Cloudy orange pour from bomber. Super fruity and floral. Strong but hides the alcohol well. Apricot and hoppy. Delicious.

I hadn’t been too happy with Knee Deep IPAs before but this one is damn tasty. Very similar in aroma and fruit punchiness to Lagunitas Sucks. Lots of citrus but also some mango and pineapple notes. This and the Hopworks Belgian Pale Ale are in contention for top 10.

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger white head. Considering the abv, the head retention and lacing are spectacular. HUGE hit of hops on the nose. Tons of tropical fruit from the Simcoe and Citra hops. There is a touch of caramel underneath along with overripe fruit. There is some dank too. All around, it is one of the best aromas I have ever experienced on a IIPA. The flavor continues the hops assault with overripe fruit, orange marmalade, and sweet caramel. Mango and orange dominate the fruity aspect and there is a little less dankness compared to the aroma. Vanilla and caramel undertones along with a very assertive bitterness that is necessary to balance out the malt sweetness. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden providing a pleasant warmth in the throat and chest. Quite impressive. Mouthfeel is just slightly sticky. Overall, one of the best IIPA’s out there. I put this up with Hopslam as being the best IIPA available on the market. Incredible balance and tons of flavor combined with a big punch from the alcohol. A beer to seek out and pick up lots of.

651mL from La Bodega. Pours a clear, deep orange. Medium, off-white head. Rockier, big webby lace. Nose is butterscotch, fresh Simcoe/Citra, mild pineapple, sugar, vanilla, tamarind. Taste is butterscotch, nut skins, fresh orange rind. Not so sticky, vanilla, heavy bitterness. Still drinkable, not so boozy like I was expecting. Spicy, dense. Long, bitter finish.
