Brewer Description: (from website) 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.

Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber, bottled on 13th July 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear golden orange colour with an almost three finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy, grapefruit zest, orange rind, pineapple, dank, pine and a very light floral.
Taste: A mix of light sweet and bitter, dank, pine, citrus rind, grapefruit pith, a touch of alcohol followed by a lasting bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a huge fan of Triple IPAs, but this was not bad at all. Nice aromas were complimented with some good flavours, although the booze, which does creep in unsurprisingly, took it down a notch or two for me.
