From the description.."Simtra Triple IPA delivers a punch in the face"

It's like being hit in the head with a sledgehammer made of hops

It's astoundingly, insanely, overwhelmingly hoppy

I am a hardcore hop-head, so this beer definitely satisfies my craving..and I LOVE it..it's definitely one of my favorites!

If I had a criticism, I would compare it to Stone Ruin Ten

Simtra is raw, extreme, outrageous and overwhelming..Ruin Ten is a bit more balanced, artistic and sophisticated

So Jeremy(the inventor), if you read this, I love Simtra, but moving a bit more toward balance and sophistication would be cool

At 11.25%, I'm reviewing this compared to other 11%+ "triple" IPA's. These beers should really not be in the same category as double IPA's as beers in the 7% range and beers in the 11-12% range are very different. That being said...

A: Hazy, orange with thick white head and excellent lacing. We're off to a very good start.

S: Mango, Papaya, Guava, Grapefruit, Meyer Lemon, Pine, even some Sage. Some toasty caremalized sugar but not too much. Some alcohol of course.

T: Again its all tropical fruits and citrus and redwood forests here....alcohol is there but nicely balanced with the hops and malt backbone. Very, very good. I could drink 2 bombers in a row, no problem. ;-)

M: Mouthfeel is full and rich but not too syrupy like some over the top triple IPAs.

Besides PTYounger, this is the best "triple" Ive had.

I was told it was just bottled like the day before.

This is so crisp, and citrusy it is a really well done Triple IPA.
The appearance is orangish and poured a little foam, almost too little, however did they really bottle it the day before?

The smell was grapefruit and quite pronounced!

Taste as smooth, for a beer at 11% very well done.

Overall this is the bomb

Bought a bomber of this from Bevmo in Mira Loma, CA. Poured into a pint glass. The main label says that this beer is "not meant for aging" and that I should enjoy it "triple fresh." It was bottled on June 4, 2014, and I consumed it on November 6 -- not exactly triple fresh. That factors into this amazing review -- I wonder what it tasted like really fresh! A serious contender for best Double IPA! 131 IBU providing a beautifully bitter punch with an 11.25% ABV that kicks as much as it delights. Of course, there are simco hops that dominate the palate in a most pleasurable way. This beer holds up and even improves as it warms. Seriously an amazing beer from a less well-known brewer than others. I'm convinced that if this brewery were bigger, this would be one of the top beers on the site. Get it and enjoy!

Simply the smoothest 3x IPA available. Citrus and slight tones on grapefruit, perfect balance of hops.
