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.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Massive grapefruit, pine and resin on nose. Grapefruit is bright and beautiful. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that leaves quickly. Only a collar and slight webbing remain. Flavor is mostly pine and resin. Slight dank. Cracker-like malt supports well with nice residual sweetness. Finishes dry. Moderate high bitterness, but not overly so as can happen with this style.

Bottle to ipa glass. Dark subdued burnt orange pour with a thick white head that laces a bit. Nose is very citrus and sweet malt. The booze is apparent. Taste is malty sweetness up front with a bitter booze grapefruit and orange hop finish.

Holly S&@$! In-your-face XXX IPA! The Tequila shot of IPAs. Very strong pine, some citrous first sniff, more moderate later. Poured with moderate head, expected more with such high hops. Amber color, low haze. Taste is hops all the way, I think I taste some sweetness of caramel, but all I can think of is swimming in a big pile of hops! Very tangible body, very warm after taste. Gulps made my eyes tear and mouth pucker! A beer for sipping, maybe the ceiling for hop heads like me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours golden deep yellow. Hint of head and good lacing. Nose is off the hook, hop, pine, citrus. Crisp clean massive hope attack, clean, fresh, on point.

CanIHave4Beers (4026) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a golden color with a small head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is buttery with a bunch of hop pellet character. It’s got some fruity hoppiness, some grassiness, and plenty of booziness.

The flavor is booze and butter with some but citrusy hop character. Yum a dum-dum.

I can hardly believe I was drinking the same beer as the other raters on this one, I did not enjoy this very much at all.

Poured from a bottle. Deep gold. Frothy, white head. Very clear. Big citrus aroma. A little bitter to start followed by some pineapple(?). Alcohol is not very apparent in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@Basunen: en fantastisk stor doft ca ananas. Smaken är mycket trevlig och fruktig. Fin humle om inte kanske något rå. Mycket god. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Good night.....this is delicious! Aroma is floral and grassy with sweet buttery notes. Taste is floral and buttery maltiness upfront with some dank, piney citrus hitting you mid-palate. The aftertaste is lingering piney spruce hops with some grapefruit bitterness and a touch of sweet malt to balance it out. There is a touch of alcohol warming as it lingers in the follow through. The palate is silky smooth. Overall this beer is ridiculously good.....not sure why it is not in the top of most people’s lists. I have not rated in a while, but this was so good that I had to give it props. The bottle says 11.25% alcohol and 131 IBU......I am definitely feeling that alcohol in the last few sips, but the 131 IBU’s are very well hidden by the buttery malty sweetness to balance it out. I have had many "triple" IPA’s, but this is the best by far!

Grabbed a bomber first thing when I arrived in Yountville at the little market here. Wine schmine, amirite? Poured in a wine glass to fit in. Bottled 2/19/14, had 3/1/14. freshy fresh. Anyway, pours a beautiful clear golden color with a creamy white half finger head on top. Bursting aroma of pine, citrus, floral notes, honey and malt sweetness. Flavor is hop candy, grapefruits and pineapple galore, some pine, sweet malts backing this one. Surprisingly smooth for 130+ IBU, and just delicious. Big slick resinous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. While pretty drinkable this one is on the hefty side as expected. Lots going on in this one and glad I finally got to try it. Now on to the wine...
