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.

On tap at biercab. Golden color with a creamy white head. Pine, resinous aroma with some tropical fruits. Flavor is nice, fresh and hoppy with some sweetness at first and great bitter at the end and aftertaste. Very enjoyable IIPA and glad to try good stuff from California, here in Barcelona.

Torrefacto (767) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 27, 2015
Ámbar con espuma blanca abundante. Aromas intensos de limón, hierba fresca y pino. Cuerpo medio con inicio maltoso breve al que sigue el cítrico, los toques herbáceos y el final de amargor equilibrado de pino.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazed orange with a small white head. Sloppy lacing. Aroma of mandarin orange and dogfood malt notes. Flavor is malty with some hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Lively carbonation. I wonder if this is just a bad batch?

Great 2x IPA, well dried out, intense flavor. What do you mean not long enough?

Aroma is citrus and grassy. Taste is citrus, a tiny bit of grapefruit, some resin, with well-balanced malt sweetness. The bitter aftertaste hangs around for a long time. The mouthfeel is spot on for a DIPA, perhaps a bit lighter than some. Overall a very good DIPA.

tmoreau (2724) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with a bubbly layer of soft white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was initially dank, followed by citrus notes as orange & grapefruit, with a bit of resin on the back, and some mellowing malt. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included moderate citrus & rind bitterness that lingered, some noticeable alcohol, and a bit of malt/caramel sweetness. Decent, but just over the DIPA threshold, imo.

Christpuncher (1629) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Super hoppy start and super bitter and dry finish. Like sucking on a wet hop cone. Smells piney and earthy. Light malt backbone. Had this one at home out of a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

28.3.2014. Pines, fruits, grapefruit in aroma. Promising good. Smooth, piny, grassy, grapefruity. Fulfills the expectations of aroma. Surprisingly fresh and not heavy.

GlassBrass440 (176) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 12, 2015
pours a clear redish gold with soft white head. Hops jump out before even sticking in my nose. Tons of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine. Some dank/woody hops too. Flavor is surprisingly restrained compared to the massive aroma. Some grassy hops, alcohol, very light caramel sweetness. Orange makes a late appearance. Sticky, almost numbing mouthfeel with a strong bitterness and some astringency. Short finish but the bitterness stays forever.

One of my favorite IPA’s. Very healthy dosing of hops with 8 differenent varities, love the dry hop touch as well. Super hop heavy, while still balanced and tasty.
