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.

rich916 (84) - Rancho Cordova, California, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Pours a clear orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades leaving behind some nice lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical, citrus, and light pine hops with some sweet caramel and biscuit malts and a touch of booze. Taste starts off with lots of grapefruit and citrus hops with some good bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine hops come through with some more light bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops good bitterness and some sweet caramel malts with a touch of booze. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
On-tap in the Seal Beach outlet of Beachwood BBQ on 15th July 2014. Slight haze to my golden pour, the head a steady white crown. Citrus hop notes hit the nose and mouth, almost sharp flavour at first. Thought the alcohol was not hidden too well compared to other Triple IPA’s or beers with similar ABV that ooze hoppiness. I did however enjoy this beer.

A remarkably dry triple ipa. A focused, piney cone of hops hits the palate with a big burst, which fades pleasantly over about a minute without a big dose of sugar to "balance" the bitterness.

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2014
10 oz pour at Ruckus Pizza Morrisville. Good aroma sweet. Fruity and alcohol. Citrus. Grapefruit and orange, some pine. Abv makes it harsh. Clean golden orange color. Ok head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Thick body oily creamy mouthfeel. Bitter sweet finish. It’s good, but for me, the high abb detracts from the overall experience. Make it a harsh scent and flavor. It’s good, but this triple ipa category gets to be s bit much.

HomerBeerOdysy (16) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2014
APPEARANCE - Clear yellow with a 1-finger off-white head that dissipates. Some lacing SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Piney, sweet, fresh fruit. TASTE - Nice and bitter, piney, not sweet. High ABV very well-hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - smooth, soft, not syrupy. Good carbonation. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Good beer, as mild as a Pilsner. Definitely chuggable.

mansquito (3337) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is a massive helping of citrus and pine. Malt backbone is, however, also evident. Feels like you are drinking hop oil, given the texture. That said, this is still very drinkable considering its large size. Not overly bitter. Also not overly sweet. Surprisingly well mixed considering its triple IPA status (if that is even a style...).

Bottle shared by Ely. Pours dark orange/amber color with off white head. Floral, citrus and pine aromas. Sweet caramel and citrus hop flavors with moderate bitterness and some booziness. Medium to full body with average carbonation.

One to be enjoyed in small doses due to the strength, but definitely worth trying. Small glass at a beer festival.

22 oz bottle from Blackwell’s. Pours a slightly hazy soft orange color with white head that gradually fades to a thin wisp with lacing. Aroma is sweet fruit with dank hops and citrus sweetness, particularly grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malt with dank bitterness as an afterthought. Alcohol is very prominent, and slightly distracting from an otherwise enjoyable flavor profile. Thin to medium bodied with full, bright carbonation. Sweet complex finish.

Huhzubendah (2443) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2014
The beer is a murky yellow / orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of dank hops, resin, alcohol, pine. Sticky and sweet. Like sucking on a hopsicle. See what I did there? Aww yeah. Full bodied and palate coating. Certainly hop forward, but there is definitely a strong malt bill and noticeably above 10% abv. Full flavored. One could get f’d up right quick sippin’ on Simtra. Tasty.

digrod (53) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Poured into IPA glass from bottle. Hazy golden color. Aromas of spice, various fruit, pine, and oak. Flavors of the same plus caramel, molasses, and plantains. Initially sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Dangerously smooth for 11.25%. Well done.
