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 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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pleasant aroma when first poured but the essence fades quickly Citrusy, and floral aromas. Dark gold color, poured relatively clear, good carbonation, white Lacy head. Big bold hop flavor at first taste, followed by mellow malts, and a lingering dry bitterness in the back. Full mouth feel. Good Big IPA...but I would definitely classify it as a double not an imperial! ;)

Herbal nose. Balanced hops. Slightly sweet. Good follow through. However no real distinguishing characteristics.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange-amber with a frothy off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of pale malts, light citrus, bread, and caramel. Tastes like raisins and pale malts with moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and dry. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep ruby and garnet under a pithy copper-hued blanket that sticks vigorously to the sides of my glass, eventually fading into a tight bubbly blanket.
Rich, robust, sticky, and parching. Pine sap and hop resins, grapefruit oils and orange oils. Crunchy caramelization and pine trees in the back. Mint leaf. Freshly mown green grass sticky and damp with dew.
Bracing! Tastebud tingling! Pine needles, Christmas trees, white and yellow grapefruit peel oozing oils and sticky essence. Sour grapefruit and key lime candies. Sticky hop resins and pine oils. Finish is pretty fast, lingering with just a hint of mint in my breath.
Deliciously unapologetic and oozing IBUs and hops in all their bitter deliciousness. A fantastic ode to the west coast from Coronado Brewing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Proof. Amber pour with a fluffy white head. Super fruity hop aroma, mango, apricot and pineapples all over it with touches a caramel malt. Smooth slightly sweet caramel malt palate with lengthy bitterness and more tropical fruit throughout. Pretty good stuff.

22 oz bomber. Aromas of pine and citrus with the alcohol showing through a little bit. Good balance and complexity and flavors of tropical fruit with a hoppy finish brings this beer together.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 Starts off with lots of nice aromatics heavy on hops! Hops are specifically pine and resin. Appearance is super blonde. Taste is resin and piney heavy but has nice fruit notes. Palate is great! Overall, very pleasant tasting IPA!
