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!

Just the numeral ratings due to heavy drinking and social interaction. I also didn’t bring a ledger with me. Cookie dough and resiny

Doble Ipa molt maltosa pero amb persistencia del llupol, m’atreviria a dir que encara li podrien tirar mes, tot I que el nom d’aquesta cervesa prove per la quantitat idiota de llupol que conte en principi un exces... Una cervesa d’aquestes que emocionen. Pel seu sabor I la facilitat per veurela. Els sabors de les maltes recorden a caramel, toffee, ben dolçeta pero molt contrarestrada pel llupol recordant tocs fruitals I poc herbals... La seva germana petita la Islander Ipa es molt mes aromatica I pots notar molt mes llupol...degut a que te 7 graus en comptes dels 8 I pico de la Idiot Ipa. Com no una cervesa per tastar I repetir, d’aquestes que cada 2 semanes cauria una...bonissima..aquets americans...jeje...

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, idealne klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, nietrwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło. W tle nuty
AROMAT: Intensywny. Występuje w tym piwie charakterystyczny zapach, który lubię określać mianem: "cukierki ślazowe". Najprościej można go scharakteryzować jako mieszankę ziół z nutą karmelową. W tle słodkie nuty cytrusowe oraz owocowe.
SMAK: Przywodzi na myśl Earl Grey z cytryną. Długi posmak cukierków ślazowych. Goryczka średnia w kierunku wysokiej, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Fenomenalny aromat! Jestem wielkim zwolennikiem tego rodzaju "klimatów" w piwie.

sonnycheeba (4493) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours mango, pineapple, orange peel, toasted malts, and faint caramel. Flavor is dry and crisp with great hop profile, tons of citrus and tropical fruit, with some light sweetness and smooth bitterness lingering. Medium body.

adasko (1204) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Sweet fruity and malty aroma. Almost like american barley wine. You can feel very mature mango and pineapple. It pours perfectly clear, golden color with 3-4 finger, not a very nice white head. In taste it’s quite good. Same notes as in aroma - very mature tropical fruits and a bit of maltiness. Bitterness for an Imperial IPA is on a medium level. It’s noticeable especially in the end and in the aftertaste, but still, there might have been a lot more of it. It’s perfectly carbonated, very drinkable. You just can’t feel this 8,5% abv. In overall it’s very nice beer, but I was expecting much more to be honest.
