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.

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.

Bomber from Palm Springs. Golden amber in color upon pouring. Minimal head. Super pungent nose with skunk and a little sweetness. Some tropical aromas. Highly hopped with a nice dry spicy bite. Smooth and well balanced. Very clean easy sipping up front. Sharp spiced hoppiness on the back end. Maybe a hint of alcohol in the finish as well. Rich and full like a big bold Belgian, only itís a highly hopped IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Rerate: Dark copper color with small white head and little lacing- thick and oily. Aroma is resinous, some tropical fruits, pinches the nose like a bit of gasoline. Flavor is very bitter, lots of earthy vegetable, and syrupy candy malt finish. Big hop bomb. Full body, big alcohol presence- pretty intense. Very different from my first experience 6 months ago, and still good, but not what I remember and not what I expected.

11/16/2012: (10)(3)(8)(4)( Amber color with very small diminishing white head. Oily on the glass with no lacing. Aroma is Fantastic- huge huge fruity & floral hops! Amazing fruity hop flavor with an intense grapefruity bitter finish. Best $9 bomber Iíve probably ever had- puts Hoppin Frogís $14 Hop Dam to shame...

Borefts warm up -bottle in the Hotel. Clear gold - amber beer. Good white head. Palate is light, minerally fresh and a little dry. Massive Citra hops! Hurrah! Somewhat skunky but with a big big orange and tangerine full on fruity freshness. Finish is semi dry with a little aniseed alcohol noticeable but this is a very drinkable beast of an IPA. Lovely!

Orange with a large white head. Aroma is candied sweet malts, grapefruit, tropical citrus fruit, orange. Medium to full mouth. Flavor had plenty of fresh, tropical citrus notes, candied malt, grapefruit, and light lemon. Powerful and full of citrus hops. What a tasty way to celebrate the election.

jredmond (5841) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle I brought to Frankís Oct 2012. Pours a deep amber body with white lacing. Aroma is bitter citrus, citric hops, bread and caramel malts. Smells a bit stale, but still decent hop aroma present. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet citrus fruits, citric hops, light pine and lots of sweet, bready malts. I need a fresh bottle of this.

Bottle from Chuck's: new brewery to NE OH. Pours clear amber, wispy off white head that fades to a thin haze and dense ring. Pine resin, mango, herbal spice notes with some crystal and caramel malt presence on the nose. As this warms, resinous hop bitterness, some grassy and herbal nuances with this hop profile. caramel and crystal malt sugars in the middle of the flavor profile, followed by a not over the top spicy bitter hop bitterness. For a triple IPA, this grew on me as the palate holds up and mellows and increases drink ability for such a big ABV beer. It's no Pliny or Dreadnaught, but damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best beers Iíve ever had. The addition of Simcoe hops made this beer pop in your mouth, and the hoppiness never died down. If youíre looking for an explosion of non-stop hoppiness, this is THE beer for you.

pepsican (1471) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Dirty brown pour with an off white head. Great fruit forward hop aroma, reminds me of hop slam. A bit too malty in the flavor though, just too dark for a IIPAfor me. Bitter finish, plenty of c02.
