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.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is full of citra aroma and a certain dankness that hits the nostrils. The appearance is a wonderful golden/orange color that has a small head that linger for a short time then goes away leaving lacing on top of the beer and on the glass. The taste is not quite as good as the aroma and appearance. My first thought is that in order to reach this alcohol content they left some hops in the fermenter for too long and it gives off a grassy note that is not very flattering for a beer with citra in it. It is a good beer but the off notes in the finish keep it from being a favorite. I actually prefer hoptologist from them to this beer.

pchoate (27) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 10, 2015
Should be called Death by IPA. Got this at the brewery on probably the best flight I've ever had. They pour 4 five ounce doubles and triples if you ask, for $6. All the knee Deep beers have great lacing and aroma. They are very hop friendly, especially the Simtra. - Snowboards and IPA

euniceradio (55) - Colton, California, USA - APR 10, 2015
Pours cloudy orange. Head is thin and filmy in nonic pint. Aroma of bread and HOPS! Fresh squeezed orange and pine. Same taste and big dank backbone. Alcohol taste on finish means business. Pretty good; pretty strong.

beerbaaron (1524) - Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2015
Draft. Unclear deep orange amber with a lasting, sticky head. Big hop flavor and aroma as you would expect. Strong bitterness but balanced by enough sweetness. Full body. Alcohol hidden well. Oily and a bit sticky. Surprisingly easy drinking. Its a mouthfull of hops.

c1raider (55) - New York, USA - APR 3, 2015
Citrus, hoppy bitterness, wet on the palate but dry aftertaste. I won’t to like this IPA but it does nothing will and barley makes the rank of marginal. Citrus, wet, bitter, dry fully summarizes the experience of this beer. Not again

badhack (379) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
You can’t tell the 11% at all. Very strong citrus/pine hops. Bitter finish. Malt to balance, toasty.

trancecyclist (46) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2015
On tap at the Perch Pub in Philadelphia. Golden color, decent head and carbonation. Hard to think of another beer of comparable alcohol that hides it so well. Even the high IBUs are well balanced in this really impressive beer.

keanex (1590) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottled March 2, 2015.
Glass: Tired Hands wine glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber body with a beautifully messy white dense head on top.
Aroma: Nice mixture of marijuana, earthy notes, floral notes and a bit of grapefruit and orange. This is a unique combo that I haven’t really come across yet. Booze shows though.
Taste: Not even close to being overly bitter, though not really malty either. This is the lightest 11.25% beer I’ve come across. A tad boozy, toasty malts, bits of earthiness and maltiness by the end, but overall a bit boring.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Drinks way lighter than the ABV and drinks way milder outside of the booziness by the finish. Maybe my palate is a bit soaked up from the mead before but this lacks hugely.

kerenmk (2990) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks DSG. Clear gold with a white head. Onion, poppy, ink, hoppy aroma. Mild bitterness, a little juicy taste. Hardly any carbonation, medium body, bitter finish.

Cool_Bond (1834) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Lovely aromas of fruity and floral. Well hopped fruity taste but also some bitter. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer but slightly bitter. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
