SIMTRA - Triple IPA - Knee Deep Brewing (Auburn, California) - 11.25% ABV - IBU 131

Poured from a bottle the color is a deep golden with a big head that retains well and good lacing. Aroma is citrusy like grapefruit, rindy, slightly fruity. As for the taste you might imagine that a beer coming in at 11.25% ABV is going to club you over the head with a malty sweetness but that's not the case here. There is some malty sweetness but in no way excessive. Other flavors include rindy citrus, some pine and good dose of bitter but it doesnt taste like 131 IBU's bitter and in our opinion thats a good thing. This is the first beer we had from Knee Deep Brewing and definitely won't be the last, we were pleasantly surprised.

RATING 9.0 out of 10


Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
