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.

Hazy amber orange color with an almost fluffy head with decent retention.
Delicious aroma with notes of passion fruit, lychee and pineapple.
Hoppy, resiny and citrusy flavor with notes of pine, Cointreau liquor, earthy and resiny hops, grapefruit, toasted malts, mango, spices, pine, herbal, flowers, tobacco and tea bags. Astringent aftertaste with an eternal bitter note.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11.25% is felt but it helps to compose part of its character.
This is a truly hoppy beer, for hop heads and pros. Pushing the doors of perception.

A truly incredible Double IPA. 11,25% but it drinks smooth. Well balanced, not over the top. Everything is under control here- the booze and the hops and the sweetness. The hops are wet and funky and there is a tad of honey sweetness at the end of the sip that reminds me of Hopslam. Some minerality in the nose. Lemon amd thyme around the edges, floral tones; a lavender field in Provence.

This is beauty!

If you want hops... Oh boy u got em! I am reviewing with what I got on tap and it was AMAZING. I got kicked in the face with the burst of hops and it got me cus it's exactly what I want after a long day of work! It was good. 95? 96? Might be too high for me however I can't be mad at those point review.
