A perfect five yes. This beast has it all from citrus black pepper floral hop aroma. Perfectly clear. Excellent lacing head lasted for ever. Crystal clear fantastic. Sharp bitterness up front saturd around a while and finished clean. If you can get this do so. Worth the price. Even here.

Pale golden with a tall lasting head that reduces slowly leaving behind a spattered sheet of pancake batter. Aromas of dusty hop spears and sweet candy malt. Medium full nectar with excellent carbonation, gives it somewhat of a creamy texture. This is my kind of IPA, fresh squeezed from the vines and trees. Candy coated malt blubber yet not sweet, some dusty hay bales. Good acid balances this beast. Oh so fresh like driving 5hrs to the beach in the hot summer wind and finally jumping into the ocean all cool like a brisk breeze in the desert. Freakin’ bravo grande on this one.

Bottle at the legend of Chriso’s pre GBBF09 Tasting. Alround rating: Massive hops, like incredibly intence lychee orange peel mango fruity amazingness, the body is up the the task of balancing it but there still a huge bittering dryness in the finish. The answer to all this immence hoppyness seems to be because the beer is dry hopped in the bottle as i found out when i took my last drink to then pull a few hop leafs out my mouth. Utterly outstanding!

Pours wonderful hazy orange little head and coats the glass nicely. Smells oh so so skunky in the best chronic way possible like lemon, kush and skunk cabbbage and a little boozy. Tastes so bomb and complex hoppy flavors.

a double ipa for a fortnight and a day #6...Hazy, amber pour with one finger of rapidly diminishing head. Rich complex aromas and flavors, featuring pine needles, grapefruit, mandarin orange, tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, and mango. Powdery texture that is neither too thick, nor too thin. This really wraps itself around the taste buds, and digs in for an incredibly lengthy finish, while somehow managing to also be very soft and gentle on the palate, as strange as that sounds. Fantastic!!!!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 Good light hop aroma, nice head, though a little pale in color. This has a good hop bite but isn’t that bitter. Crisp and relatively easy to drink, I think I may like this one Coronado beer I had in the bottle better than all I had on tap at the brewery last weekend. Had again at Brew’s Best festival. Raised score from 4.5 to 4.6.

Awesome double IPA!! This monster of a beer pours a light amber color with a very soft, creamy and sticky off-white head. The beer leaves a beautiful, cascading, sticky lace around the edges of the glass. The nose is full of generous hops, resin, grass, light earth, citrus and pine. The body is smooth, creamy and an attractive mouthfeel. Some of the extremely well-balanced and delicious flavors were of hop resin, dry citrus, light red pepper flakes, earth, bread and a hint of caramel malt. The finish was smooth and delicious, with a subtle hint of alcohol, along with some spicy and dry hops. The Idiot IPA is a masterful beer!

Great imperial. Super fresh. Bitter green hops. Mouth buzzer. Doesn’t have the sweetness I like. Slight soapy aftertaste.

Generally I’m kind of tired of the west coast hop bombs, but this one is very good. Poured at a good temperature with a giant, foamy, frothy, off-white head that soon settles down and a bit of lace. Aroma is a fresh, pleasing hop, fruit, and a bit of malt. Flavor’s of course dominated by hop, but done with a sense of aesthetics - nicely contrasted with the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, long, with no off qualities, and only a hint of alcohol.
