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.

Great aroma of citrus fruits. The taste is similar. A lot of citrus fruits all over. Dry finish with just the perfect amount of bitterness.

On tap. It has quite beautiful and charming texture. Beautifully mariaged Juicy and grassy hop shake my brain. I can see brewers’ soul the stracture stands from beginning to end. Smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste my tongue is clean more than I think.Well drinkable. I want refill if I don’t have work tomorrow.

22 oz. bottle from Wine 101 in Wake Forest, NC. Hazy, dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Incredible aroma of grapefruit rind, pine needles, and sweet caramel. Super hoppy bitter pine flavor with a generous amount of malt sweetness. Some moderate alcohol warming and a lasting pine and grassy aftertaste. Really great stuff.

A really enjoyable IPA. Aroma is peppery, bready, fruity... a little bit of everything. The flavor is the same.... extremely complex. Nice full mouthfeel and velvety smooth. No lingering bitterness. Delicious!

Underbar humlig doft av Bla citrus, tropisk frukt, gräs och malt. Smaken är riktigt god med en bra sötma och inslag av ovanstående. Bra beska och god eftersmak! Ev lite hög % men det är inget som drar ner ölet i sig. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite IPA’s. Very healthy dosing of hops with 8 differenent varities, love the dry hop touch as well. Super hop heavy, while still balanced and tasty.
