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.

Simcoe and Citra: my two favorite hops! Pours a very hazy ruby orange color with a half finger off white head. Smells of sweet, juicy grapefruit, lots of papaya, mango, pine, fruit punch, almost like a perfume floral smell. Little bit of breadiness in the back but over taken by the hop qualities. Taste starts with the mellower fruits like papaya, mango, pineapple from the citra. Then in the middle you get a carmel flavor, as well as a biscuity note. Also some of the more astringency notes start to creep in like grapefruit and pine from the simcoe. Then the finish is more of the carmel malt, pine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, papaya, mango. Just a symphony of flavors. The finish lasts and a bitter grapefruit and lemon flavor is the last to go. Just enough malt to just cut some of the bitterness from the massive amounts of hops. Definitely do get booze on the finish as well, but that is expected at almost 12%. Gets much better as it warms and the fruity flavors of the hops definitely do come out when it does. Pretty full mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a creamy, yet oily mouthfeel from the hops. Would love to get my hands on more of this!

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2015
A dark orange. A bright hip aroma. With citrus, pine and a lightly honeyed malt backbone. In the mouth it is far lighter than something like Ruin10 (which I also had a growler of this week) sure itís smooth but not too weighty. The bitterness is light and springy, keeping the tongue fresh for the next sip. This is what a ridiculously strong IPA should taste like.

glennmastrange (2431) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and spruce for the hops, light soap for the yeast with dried apricot and alcohol in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber/beige. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and moderate to heavy alcoholic finish. Excellent DIPA, full of piney hops and a nice bite in the flavor.

22 picked up at the Boise COOP for about $9ish.. a little pricey given the other DIPAís available locally. Clear golden.. perfectly golden with a nice foamy white head... looks amazing. Fruity citrus is huge and unapologetic.. light herbaceous elements with warmth.. Bitter up front.. pithy citrus and lesser fruity floral notes as it warms up.. Knee Deep is a very welcome in Boise.. The bottles are pretty representative of West Coast IPAís.

SG111 (570) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Tap at Billco, Napa. Pours fairly light golden color almost no head, minimal lacing. Not unsurprising given that itís an 11% IIPA. Aroma is juicy citrus, orange, and tangerine with some floral notes. Dank hops. Flavor is candied tangerine orange , lemon and caramel sweetness. Hoppy but a good balance. Really excellent. Itís hoppy but itís just so good. Knee Deep does west coast hops so well.
