3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber/orange with with a dense smallish off-white head. Huge hops(like all of them) coming through at first, but it has a malty/yeasty aroma that doesn’t quite fit, and that carries through in the flavor and it doesn’t quite work for my palate. Still a very good beer, just not my favorite. Maybe I got a bad batch cuz I’ve had "Idiot" before and thought it was outstanding.

Poured from a 12. Flavor is tropical fruit and hoppy. Has an initial piney, sweat sock flavor...but then gives way to tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Finishes slightly bitter, yet still sweet.

Beautiful shinny clear solid golden color with a creamy white head. Very balanced pine/ resinous aroma with some tropical fruits notes. Flavor is balanced hopiness with just the right amount of malts and a great creamy piney bitter aftertaste. Solid medium palate, Overall balanced and very enjoyable IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is IPA’ish tropical, lychees, pineapple and I pick up a kind of "nutty" malt smell. The taste is grapefruits bitterness, a little oily citrus experience, rich malts and a not so overly bitter aftertaste. This is a good one even if this bottle was a little tired.
