Kroney (210) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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 doesnít quite fit, and that carries through in the flavor and it doesnít quite work for my palate. Still a very good beer, just not my favorite. Maybe I got a bad batch cuz Iíve had "Idiot" before and thought it was outstanding.

Boutip (5232) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus notes with light sweet malt base is pretty nice. Taste is also a good mix of citrus oriented hops with light residual sugar and dry malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice old school IIPA with nice Cascade notes.

zoucrew102 (906) - - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Tropical fruit aroma with grapefruit citrus and pine resiny flavors. Pours golden colored with a large, soapy white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with tropical fruit and some grapefruit citrus flavors and acidity. Finishes dry with harsh and astringent piney hop bitterness. Good to start but very harsh and not great on the finish.

mile (3459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and light - some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness with some piney/grapefruit hoppyness, light - some alcohol. IIPA with too much caramel - too sweet for me. Could use more bitterness to balance caramel sweetness.

AAEA (226) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2015
22 Fl OZ ($5.99 Bottle) thought I was going to get an IBU bomb but it was relatively easy going 78 IBUs is fairly good but feels far too little to call it "idiot IPA" I thought I was going to be like Lagunitas Hop Stoopid with a heavy IBU over 100. great beer donít get me wrong but if youíre hunting a heavy hitter this isnít it.
