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.

22 oz, pours an inviting orange with small head, smells of beautiful resinous grassy, cat piss, fruity melon. Tastes of toffee, carmel, strawberries and pure hoppy deliciousness. Balanced extravagantly well.

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 (4009) - 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 (1895) - 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.

65cl, new exclusive American brew Anno 2012, thx alot to Secret Santa!, very complex bitter brew, bitter/fruity and slightly spicy/malty, yet not too heavy, balanced, clear, rocky head, very good brew, yet expensive!

BlackHaddock (3645) - 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 IPAís 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.

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. Itís good, but for me, the high abb detracts from the overall experience. Make it a harsh scent and flavor. Itís good, but this triple ipa category gets to be s bit much.
