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. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. The head sticks around for a while, and there’s a good amount of lacing. Aroma is good and hoppy, it smells mostly like citrusy (pineapple, mango, grapefruit, lemon peel) and pine hops, along with some caramel and bready malt. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, full of citrusy (grapefruit, tropical fruit) and piney hops, with caramel and bready malt also noticeable. The piney bitterness really comes out in the flavor, and it’s not boozy, at least not as much as I was expecting an 11.25% ABV brew to be. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick and a bit sticky with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good brew, and I’d pick this one up again at $8.99 a bomber.

This is a really exquisite IPA. The aroma is amazing - super citrus nose. Small yet frothy head and pours a bright orange color. Taste is similar to the nose - really delicious.

A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of malt with fruits like citrus with nettle. There are a lot of hops. The taste of sweet fruits,sparkling, with hop bitter and notes of spices. The aftertaste is a little sweet with bitter hops.

New brewery to Ohio. I had their Hop Shortage and was impressed. Simtra was outstanding. Flavor explodes. Definitely not a session beer, but a very satisfying sipper. I wouldn’t call it balanced - the hops definitely win, but still enough malt backbone to make it very enjoyable. If you like high IBUs, seek this one out.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a smaller sized off white head. The aroma has a big grapefruit citrus burst with additional resiny hops and sweeter caramel malts. The flavor is more grapefruit resiny hops, orange zest, grass, with enough caramel malt to not have this be completely one dimensional. Some toasted malt at the back. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Well worth a try.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, grassiness and malt. Malty flavor with nice orange character, along with some grapfruit bitterness before a dank, grassy finish. Very impressive.
