dry cereal, citrus, bitterness, grass, earthy hops, caramel
Yellow amber color
Caramel malts up front, puckery hop mid palette, bitter finish. Yum.
Oily, tightening of taste buds from bitterness. Again, yum.
Solid beer for a bitter IPA fan.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper colour and smallish head on top. Aroma has lots of sweet caramel and some sweet fruity notes. Taste has lots of sweetness, caramel and sweet fruits and ending with pines bitterness. Full body and medium carbonation. A bit too sweet DIPA for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: flowery, grassy and woody powerful beer.
Appearance: yellow-orange almost cristal clear with little white foam.
Aroma: floral and citric, going to some grass and hops and finishing in hints of fresh-cutted wood, beech and syrup.
Taste: medium to strong bitter.
Palate: thick but drinkable tongue sensation, like hot honey or mead.
Note: "Idiot" is a true reference to the drowsy feeling that this beer gives with only a few sips.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orangish copper with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, sweet caramel a light medicinal character. Taste is grapefruit, pine, medicinal, citrus peels and a nice balance of hops to malts. This one is kind of weird in that itís big and balanced which is great for an iipa... But then itís astringent and the medicinal character doesnít help either.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some dankness. Tate is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, caramel, sweet malts, apricots, and some grassy hops. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty DIPA that pretty drinkable and complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy amber. Nice frothy head. Aroma of caramel, grass, wet hay and OJ. Taste...big imperial malt backbone. Hops are OJ, cedar, pine and grass. Surprised by lack of grapefruit notes, yet refreshing to have them omitted for once. Decent Imperial.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was disappointed with the lack of hoppiness, as this is an Imperial IPA. Cloudy golden in appearance. Literally no head and minimal lacing. Aroma of booziness and tangerines. It gets better as it warms though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bottle of hazy orange loveliness with a thick, puffy white head. The aromas suggest orange peel, mace, golden pastry and baking, some buttery goodness. The flavour is enormous, as expected. Tart citrus, grapefruit, gooseberry, cereal grains, honey and lemon juiciness. It has a massive smack of bitterness which ensures an astringent and lengthy finish. Itís eye-watering stuff.
