22oz bottle from Appalachian Wintner (Asheville, NC). 10.99. Bottled 7/7/14. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours bright amber with a three quarter finger white cap. The head fades to a lingering layer that laces well.

Lush, bright aromas of tropical fruit, mandarin, berries, pine, peach and a notable faint malt sweetness in the background.

Deliciously huge hop flavor. Oranges, pineapple, papaya, peaches, berries, mango, pine, slight floral, caramel malts, faint bread, mild pepper and an ocassional understated shot of booze. Drinks considerably smoother than the double digit abv implies. Those fantastic tropical and citrus hops stay in the driver's seat but there is plenty of bitterness (without seeming bitter for bitters' sake).

Oily, slick, medium full body with a subtle carbonated fizz. Papaya, oranges, peach and caramel malt sweetness dance on the palate in a lingering aftertaste.

Simtra is a truly outstanding imperial IPA. I really enjoyed how much hop flavor it presents without ever coming accross as overly bitter or boozy. Very well done and highly recommended.

The beer comes in a clear amber color.

The aroma is a hop bomb of sweet tropical fruits, peaches, and then lots of grassiness, pine, dank qualities, cat pee, onion.

On the flavor, the beer has those sweet tropical fruits in the front of peaches, pineapple, and sweet grapefruit. There's a bit of a bready malt in the middle. The back then is then pine, herbal qualities, resin. A bit of sweetness lingers with that bitterness.

Alcohol hits gently throughout with warming as the beer goes down.

A well made triple IPA.
