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.

Bottle from Bottledog, Kingís Cross, London. Cloudy orange with slim white head. Lovely aroma of citrus aroma, pineapple. Taste doesnít. Disappoint, citrus orange, resin, sweet malts, well hid alcohol, with a touch of warmth on the way down. Medium bodied, nice bitterness throughout, with long bitter finish. Excellent.

On tap at turners high moon In avon nc. It is a clear golden with a white head. The aroma is grapefruit. The taste is bitter and resonates grapefruit

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium malt body with big citra and simcoe hops. Booze well hidden. Just a touch sweet. Well done DIPA.

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. Semi-opaque Spalding orange in glass with sudsy white head. Pine and dank citrus dominate the perfume. An unexpectedly chocolaty undertone. Maybe roasted malt. High ABV is on display before this hits your lips. Medium bodied. An insulting amounts of pine resin and tropic hops, backed by pro forma caramel malts. More booze. Flavor packed, but to what end. Could use more direction, but no regrets.

Bottle: Thanks, Doug. Hazy amber & orange with a foamy, gray tinted head. Aroma of sticky, juicy citrus. Big-time orange flesh, candied grapefruit, grass, & residual sugar. Large caramel malt presence; more sweet than bitter on the nose. Lots of grapefruit rind in the flavor, starting with some bitter pine-cone, floral notes, & resinous herbal tones. But the latter half quickly transitions into a more malt-heavy sweetness. Caramel, toffee, even some residual brown sugars. Crystal malt. Sticky. Loses lots of the fruity pungency of the aroma. Strange gradient from almost abrasively bitter to overly sweet in the flavor. Despite that, I donít hate this. Actually, itís not that bad at all. The nice aroma wins back some points... But I think it is vastly overrated.

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.

emacgee (4139) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a very pretty and bright hazy straw blonde with a white head. Nose is very bright and lively, lots of citrus and floral notes with some leafy and ephemeral pine. A touch of alcohol and dank. Strong flavor and a bit muddled. Slightly oily hop feel in the flavor and mouth. A little bit of heat. Moderately bitter with citrus rind and pine resin.

That1Guy (1964) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bomber given to me by a friend for my birthday. Packaged 06/13/14 so he got it relatively fresh. Pours a very clear orange with a good white head that sticks around. I was reading the other reviews, and this is obviously not the best batch. This one is laced with diacetyl. It completely overpowers the majority of the hop character. Slick, buttery mouthfeel. Iím glad Iím not the only asshole here mentioning diacetyl. Would definitely like to try it again.

On tap @ Pony Bar, seemed nice & fresh. Pours a clear orange / light amber, small white head. Aroma is orange, sweet candied fruits, pine hop, sugar, light booze, citra hop. Flavor is fairly sweet & bitter well balanced, slightly boozy on back end but really solid. Big sweet, med body, light carbonation.
