Brewed with 8 different hops and dry hopped with whole cone Cascades. Its more powerful than our Islander IPA and even the most intelligent have become "idiot" after a few pints of this super hopped up beer!

Kroney's rating

Kroney (158) - 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 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.

julesjis (150) - Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2014
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.

Zymurgeist2 (1107) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
From bomber to pint glass. Moderate high pine, resin and funk, with restrained citrus. Clear, gold-amber with full white head which lingers. Taste is overt pine and hop resins. Slight malt bready backing. Moderate high bitterness.

Fukito (782) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 7, 2014
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.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
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.

On draft. Huge aroma of stone fruit. Wow. Flavors of floral hops and some peach with toffee malts. Terrific.

TEJA (1372) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Draught at the flying dog in Stockholm. Big white lastning head. Clowdy amber color. Medium hoppy aroma with some caramell malt. Small dark caramell taste with balanced bitterness and medium to big body.
