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.

Bottled. Pours a clear deep golden color with a quickly dissipating white foam. The hop varieties lend an interesting aroma with notes of orange and grapefruit citrus with biscuit, pine and rumcake. Delicious flavor slammed with bitterness and a strong malt backbone. Pine resin and pepper all over. Really good but the alcohol comes in and wrecks the palate. Takes away the clean finish that only a very few know how to perfect in the West Coast i.e. California style (see Alpine, RR etc). Overall really tasty. Youll feel this one in the head fo sho.

SG111 (451) - 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.

Hazy orange color with big white head. Aroma is hop explosion, sweet juice, citrus, piney, earthy. Taste is refreshing, soothing, great residual sweetness, not too punchy, bitter finish. Honey as well. Both warming and refreshing. Fine-bubbled carbonation. This has 11.25 ABV? Crazy. I like this very much.

Draught: Somewhat orangish darker golden color. There was a small white head on it. Good nose! Lots of hops! Some sweetness, citrus, pine, earthy. The taste is quite good. Some sweet malts, and a lot of hops. Pine, earthy, citrus. A really good TIPA!

75cl bottle shared in a Struise glass. Dark orange to amber with a voluminous white head which lasts admirably. Aroma is pine and resinous hops with very little else going on. Taste is more of the same - lovely mouthfeel and the carbonation is spot on. Not so malty compared to other sweeter efforts which is my preference. Clearly, a strong beer but very well balanced and you would not know this was over 11% ABV. Best IPA I have tried thus far.

Bought by Frey to the baby shower .. . Pours a dark caramel Amber .. Really solid head, lacing .. Lots of citra and simcoe for sure! Grassy and sappy too .. Soft mouth and a ping pleading finish .. Knee deep knows hops! .. . . Country and rap killed music

22 oz bottle. Bottled on 03/16/15. (Healthy Spirits) San Francisco, CA.
Clear golden colour with a mid-size white head. Very strong hoppy aroma with strong bitterness. Stunning. Some sweetness there too. The flavour is strong sweet and bitter hops. Wow! Amazing DIPA or TIPA on 11.25%. Super strong but still tasty and balanced. A great brew.

Thisis12ptfont (971) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Aromas of huge buttery hops, orange peel, pines, grapefruit, hop resin, tangerine, honey, maple and sweet caramel. Appears a bright gold with a very thin, almost non existent white foam. Taste follows nose with that buttery hop profile in the front followed by big citrus, tangerine, peach, grapefruit, stone fruit, mango, honey, crisp caramel, biscuit malt and grain malt. Finishes very dry and bitter with residual hop resin, pines, and oils. Overall, really nice triple IPA. Actually one that is not too sweet and genuinely hop defined. The malt provides an incredible body though. A rating.

Bomber bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Pine, citrus, spicy hops, with some caramel. Smooth and easy drinking with the alcohol content hidden.

Nice full bitter astringent hoppy resinous grapefruit IPA. Body is still medium and drinkable. Good good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice aroma with citrus, pine, and some alcohol. Very bitter flavor with some citrus and heavy alcohol. More bitterness and more alcohol in the finish. I like imperial IPAs, but this was a little over the top and probably could have used a few less ABVs, Still a really good beer though.
