Bulk_Carrier (4222) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Bottled 08/13/16. Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a glossy burnt orange slightly yellow color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Slight messy lacing. The aroma takes in a nice well balanced sweet to bitter citrusy hoppiness. Sweet onion dankiness slides in underneath. The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned aromas to balance spectacularly between the sweet to the bitter. Balanced bitter citrus/onion hoppiness hits nicely against the sweet malts. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Fantastic sipping ability helps create a long sweet to bitter balance rolling over my tongue. ABV feels well hidden. Overall, a well executed DIPA that I would have again.

puboflyons (3235) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2016
From the 650 ml bottle dated 08/13/16. Golden amber heady pour. The aroma is more muted than I expected but there is an emphasis on the floral, citrus, and herbal hop notes. Mild caramel malts under it all. The body is medium or a bit better. The taste has a moderate white sour dough character that is immediately followed by the floral and also slightly spicy hop finish. No booze for over 11%.

Habanero (4377) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2016
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, cireus, melon and peachy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent DIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

fkoolen (1080) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2016 660ml bottle at home. Cloudy light orange-golden cookout, white foamy head that leaves a nice lacing. Nice spruce, pine, resin, grass, citrus/grapefruit hoppy tones, rich grainy and sweet malty base, quite yeasty, alcohol gives a nice punch: very well balanced. Big body, medium carbonation.

amber color with clear body. very hoppy and moderate malty. its triple ipa so the bitterness is really high, and the sweetness is well back up the bitterness.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Draught. Super hoppy beer that smacks you right in the face with hops as soon as you get it anywhere near your nose. Fairly bitter, and doesnt drink like its ABV, which I view as a plus.

MetalNHopHead (1655) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Good goddamn. Coming from a state thats known for making absurdly hoppy beers, Simtra might be the bitterest thing Ive tasted yet. Hazy amber appearance. Its basically all hop notes here. Dank, resinous, aggressive, piney, chewy, pungent, astringent. Theres some glimmers of tropical sweetness but mostly its redolent of fruit pith. Creamy feel but its crisp and bright with intense bitterness. As IPAs go this is an extreme example. Anyone short of a hophead and/or masochist will find this to be abrasive, so a relatively small subset will like it, while some seasoned, open-minded tasters will be forced to admire - perhaps begrudgingly - how unrelentingly hop-forward this is.

poisoneddwarf (2387) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2016
On tap at Manito. Aroma is onion, grapefruit. Pours mostly clear golden with a collar of big bubbly foam. Taste is oniony, licorice, alcohol. Im not a big fan of oniony beers, but this isnt as bad as some out there.

Beerdrinker79 (2117) - Idaho, USA - AUG 6, 2016
12 oz draft- Pours light hazy orange with a creamy blanket lace. Aroma is mango, nice and hoppy, resinous, banana and lemon. The taste is resin, lemon, medium bitterness that follows through to the end, alcohol is noticeable, wish it was dialed back a bit. Not bad.
