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.

Poured from bomber a nice hazy, golden hay hue. Aroma is citrus, orange zest, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine resin, crystal malt, simcoe and citra hops. The flavour is pleasingly hoppy, creating a sweet orange hard candy sensation along side of resiny pine bitterness, along with a particular field grass hint. Midway the bitterness really ramps up and into the finish it gives way to hints of biscuit malts and caramel malts. An excellent beer with a serious punch.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Alcohol, resin and tropical fruit aromas. Hot caramel and mild resin front to back. Lasting alcohol finish.

"this one’s been winning awards left and right, and i can see why. reminiscent of a Maharaja. aroma of weed, citrus, a touch of pine and a good dose of tropical fruit. flavor the same with an ample dose of bitterness and a nice, fairly clean bittersweet finish. medium bodied and a touch sticky. quite good. i wish i could count on their beer being fresh. This score reflects fresh only. Dated bottles as of 1/13."

Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing an orangey gold color, with a decent layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was stinky, dankness, and greenery, with esters & resin that took a distant back seat, and a touch of sweet grain to totally confuse me. Medium+ bodied, with good carbonation, the taste showed a little more fruit as citrus & some tropical hints, a pronounced hop bitterness, some malt sweetness to temper, and a boozy alcohol presence. Roughed up a bit, but I’ll heal.

Location: Draft at Morrison’s, 9/22/14

Aroma: It has a big juicy hop aroma of grapefruit, resin, pine, and some sweet caramel
Appearance: It pours a dark golden color with a fairly thick head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is big as well, similar to the nose, a little sweet, but with a big bitterness
Palate: The body is full, it gets a little sticky, with a smooth, creamy feel, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a really nice one. Very hop-forward, with a enough sweetness to keep it from being one-dimensional. This is a nicely made beer.

This is a big beer. Not boozy at all. Dank hop flavor dominated with citrus. Little bit of a malt body sweetness, but the hops take the stage here. Mango and tropical flavors, highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC (bottled July 2, 2014). Murky dark orange pour with a frothy/creamy off-white head. Enticing aroma of fresh pine, grapefruit rind, and wet grass. As psyched as I was from the aroma the taste is a bit of a letdown as the alcohol is a bit too prevalent. Still there is plenty of hop bitterness with juicy grapefruit and pine needles notably making their presence known. Very good beer, but with less of an alcohol presence this would be incredible.

Pours a light and clear gold. Has an extremely strong floral hop aroma. A very strong flavor of floral, citrus, spices, and hops. A strong bitter and dry aftertaste. An amazing beer!

Bottle looks from the date to be six weeks old now. Pour has a deep golden color and a thin coating of off white head that retained a ring on the glass. Aroma has big crushing hops, bitterness, resins, citrus, and a sticky malted core. This is so juiced up it is in barley wine territory. Mouth feel coats well and is medium with medium low carbonation. Flavor again has an insane quantity of hops, resins. creeping bitterness, hefty sweet malts, and citrus. This gets to be almost thick from the hops more than from the malts. Definitely a very filtered beer as there is not any sediment in the bottom and I personally enjoyed the double more than this triple.
