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.

22oz bottle, $11.99, no date from OB Quik Stop--hopefully this is a new batch, and not just leftovers from the distributor. We shall see. Clear medium orange with a one finger off-white head, fair retention. Aroma of bitter orange rind and cat pee, light lemon (not in the Sorachi Ace way, but the Citra) and herbal dry hops. There is a little crystal malt in the backend, but doesnít seem sweet. I donít get much pine in the aroma, but it does come forth more in the flavor. I get some alcohol warmth and spice, mild sweetness and lightly toasty cracker malt. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 7, the alcohol numbing the tongue. Big full body, though not yet syrupy, with low to moderate carbonation. Better than I thought itíd be--the hops arenít quite super bright and juicy (though close), but the sweetness is right where it should be for a >10% beer.

tia (1002) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy caramel with thick creamy head. Smells very thick and caramelly with some grappa and some white pepper- perfumey over all. Very sweet then better. Heavy.

Salmoniform (949) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Poured from bottle to Glass. Clear Amber hue with creamy white head that held a ring. Aroma is huge papaya, melon, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus oil, caramel, ethanol. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a great hop bitterness following and a warm ethanol finish. Overall this brew is fantastic.

Lectvay (150) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Itís pungent, intense hoppy aroma, but also lots of alcohol, so thereís a chemical burn to the smell. Taste is great, sweet and bitter, intense.

nothingbutIPAs (13) - Hillsborough, USA - OCT 27, 2014
this Triple IPA smells awful, kind of like the BOMB, but it is incredibly smooth for its ABV (11.25%). would have rated it higher, but I enjoy the smell of great IPAs too much.

On draft at The Local Beer Bar. Came in the glass a dark gold with big creamy white head and excellent lacing. Nose is powerfully citrus and alcohol. Medium plus in body . Mouthfeel shows the alcohol. The flavor is cat pee citrus and lots of hops hang on and on in the the citrus finish. Really really good.

On tap at the Churchill Cigar Lounge. It poured a golden orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was of caramel malts, citrus and tropical fruits. The taste was similar and really fruity and tropical. Awesome.
