Pours clear amber-orange with a big white head. Nice bitterness throughout. Pine, citrus and grapefruit. Sweet caramel malt and resinous hops. Nice but not quite my style of ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours a light amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is of sweet fruits, grains, and citrus. Flavors of malts, hops, grains, coffee, and caramel. A decent D.I.P.A.

The Idiot IPA has a cloudy amber color with a bubbly thin foam head. The scent has a floral hops, weak sweet malts, pine, and grapefruit. As for flavor I picked up on grapefruit, hops, and carmel sweet malts. This brew is refreshing and drinkable. The finish leaves a medium level of bitterness with an after taste of malts, hops, and a citrus flavor that lingers. Overall I enjoyed this west coast brew.

A clean pour, big head. Tastes of malt, bread and crust and citrus and resin with a very long, bitter finish.

A perfect five yes. This beast has it all from citrus black pepper floral hop aroma. Perfectly clear. Excellent lacing head lasted for ever. Crystal clear fantastic. Sharp bitterness up front saturd around a while and finished clean. If you can get this do so. Worth the price. Even here.

dfearnley (1609) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle to pint glass Orange, grapefruit, wheat, and light pine. Clear amber with no head. Sweet with long lasting bitterness. Silky and oily texture with some astringency.

DocJitsu (1570) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a hazy amber golden color with a short, quickly evaporating with head. Vibrant grapefruit wafts into the olfactory like a designer perfume. Not too loud, but very appealing and sexy. Tantalizes nicely. The first pull fills the mouth with slick, wet liquid that finishes with a carbonation scrub and hop burn that balances the mouthfeel well. Flavors are mellow for a San Diego IPA, but the finish bitters with yellow grapefruit tartness. Very solid.

beer-yum (1241) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 An excellent double IPA. Nicely balanced and hides its strength well. Probably too well - you could do yourself a lot of damage drinking this like a session beer!

22oz bomber thanks to raiders707. Crystal clear golden color with huge fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma is light floral and citrus hops. Really nice light tasting double IPA. Floral, citrus, grapefruit, some caramel and honey notes, with slightly bitter finish. Really refreshing!

pour golden with nice head. Dry, bitter, citrus, resiny, lingers on your tongue long after. ABV very nicely hidden by the heavy hops. Very nice California IIPA.
