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.

Bomber from Andersons in Sylvania. Clear orange pour with a thin bright white and lots of sudsy stick. Aroma is bread, grass and grapefruit. Tastes are earthy, herbal, biscuit, lemon, orange, pepper, vegetal. Alcohol is noticeable (hard not to be), but comes together well enough. Tough rate - enjoyed it, but not sure I’d have to get it again.

Wow the strongest IPA I’ve ever had not bad but man you can really taste the booze on the way down leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with little head. Might have been a little too cold... Aroma is spicey citrus. Smells of more malt than it tastes. Hops are pronounced. Starts spicey. Hints of citrus fruit. Not much sweetness or malt to it. Finishes floral, bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a resinous mouth coating. Alcohol not detected at all. Hop mixture is intersting and tastey though could have used some balance. A bit too much favor to the bitter side. Good but not in the class of the great TIPA/IIPAs out there.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and citric. a bit tropical, a touch oxidized as well but I wont hold it against them, not sure when it was bottled but I can tell its a nice aroma of citric fruit and simcoe. Flavor has a burst of tropical and citric character stay throughout with a slight piney bitterness with a touch of dank. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
22 oz bottle, gift from Brandon C., from Ale, Wine, and Spirits, Columbus. Unbelievably strong aroma, just amazing; I could smell this as I poured it 2 feet away from my face; one of the extremely few beers where I was stricken by the aroma before the appearance. Pours an ever-so-slightly hazy, copper-ish amber with a smaller white, pillowy head; dissipates into a thin covering that is easily brought back with swirling. Aroma--BAM--insanely massive grapefruit, overwhelmingly citrusy and floral. Flavor really is quite bitter but falls short of offensively so. Feels creamy and almost oily; lower side of silky carbonation. It’s a little bit opposite-of-sobering that this bottle contains more alcohol than 6 oz of mass market vodka (!).

Excellent aroma and taste of citrus hops. Full body, great bitterness. Clear amber body

hapjydeuce (950) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottled. Pours a clear deep golden color with a quickly dissipating white foam. The hop varieties lend an interesting aroma with notes of orange and grapefruit citrus with biscuit, pine and rumcake. Delicious flavor slammed with bitterness and a strong malt backbone. Pine resin and pepper all over. Really good but the alcohol comes in and wrecks the palate. Takes away the clean finish that only a very few know how to perfect in the West Coast i.e. California style (see Alpine, RR etc). Overall really tasty. Youll feel this one in the head fo sho.

This is an imperial IPA that I would love to get my hands on year round. I havent been "wowed" by a DIPA in a long time and this is one of those that brought a great smile to my face.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of pungent hops, citrus and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with an oily lingering citrus aftertaste. Good IIPA all around.
