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!

Whoa. Dank, resinous and big old pine style IPA with a overbearing syrupy sweetness. Boozy on the finish with a light astringency. Hops are heavy and punchy with tons of grapefruit and pine resin notes. Good but too sweet.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 Clear gold pour with a fluffy white head. Big nose of piney floral hops, melon, lemon, malts, alcohol. The first thing i notice when i sip this brew is that it is very palatable for a beer of this size. Very drinkable. Its very hop forward with citrus and pine. Pretty sweet. Pretty good, worth the purchase!

Yikes, what an interesting Hop bomb. Distinct piney and in- distinct citrus blast, almost sweet and wonderfully no malt overtones. Very hard to describe but a great triple IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some earthy tones and hints of caramel and tropical fruits. Taste is a grapefruit, pine and earthy hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a big hoppy brew with a big malts to balance things out. Alcohol is well hidden. Recommended.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2017 Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours clear gold with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is huge and full of lemon, grapefruit, mango, and pine. Initial taste is pine, earthy, oak aged bourbon, with a hint of citrus underneath. Aftertaste is still very earthy with a hint of biscuit and pine resin. Full body and just enough carbonation. Alcohol is hidden pretty well and leaves a nice warming. Very good stuff. Almost like a bigger version of their Imperial IPA.

On tap at Lost Dog Cafe in Merrifield, VA. Clear, bright golden org with no head and trivial lacing. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, grapefruit, other citrus, pineapple, pale malt and alcohol. Taste of grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, pineapple, alcohol and sweet malt. Medium full body and medium carbonation. Plenty hoppy with a firm sweet malt backbone and a noticeable alcohol burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 650 ml du Canada craft Beer Club. O: Agrumes avec orange, fruits tropicaux, mangue et gazon. ’’très gazon’’. Le malt démontre sa présence avec un peu de biscuit et l’alcool est très puissant. V: Doré, tirant sur le ambré, sa mousse d’épaisseur moyenne et d’aspect rocailleuse recouvre un liquide clair et limpide. G: Le gazon recouvre l’entièreté de la langue dès l’entrée de bouche, puis se déclinent tons de fruits tropicaux ainsi qu’en une intense amertume résineuse rendue astringente par le puissant alcool. Sauf pour le gazon qui est dominant, on retrouve en sous-note de l’orange et de la mangue. Le problème de cette bière est que l’intensité de son dry hop et son alcool puissant tuent toutes les autres saveurs. Son corps charnu et sa texture grasse en font un liquide fort appréciable mais à la complexité gustative restreinte. Il y en aura peut-être pour encenser cette bière. Mais vous m’en verrez désolé, ça me prend un minimum de variété de saveurs. Pas juste de l’alcool et du houblon.

Clear orange with a fluffy white foam. Lots of melon in the aroma.Big hop flavor and bitterness is well balanced. Melon flavor lasts long into the finish.
